Subject tomcat 5.0.27 is giving me trouble
Date Thu, 29 Jul 2004 21:50:03 GMT
My gentoo box apparently just upgraded to tomcat 5.0.27 last night and 
it's completely screwed up my setup. It used to be that tomcat would 
reside in /opt/tomcat (conf in /etc/tomcat, which was symlinked to from 
within /opt/tomcat), my app detail .xml files in 
/opt/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost and most of my apps in 
/home/eric/workspace and I could start it either with /etc/init.d/tomcat 
or eclipse. Everything was great. Then I upgraded. Apparently, gentoo 
tried to migrate everything to /opt/tomcat5 and /etc/tomcat5 but it 
didn't do a very good job. I got it to start from the init script, 
although it's log was very crabby (attached). I changed the location of 
tomcat from in eclipse and tried to start it and got the below response. 
What is wrong?!
