Subject Re: OutOfMemory on FreeBSD
Date Mon, 23 May 2005 00:12:49 GMT
Hey, I guess I can answer my own question!  Don't you just love it when that 

The makefile for tomcat5 on FreeBSD doesn't give the option to add additional 
parameters.  There is probably a better way to do this than to hard-code more 
variables, but I'm not sure how to do it.  So for anyone else who runs into 
OutOfMemory exceptions on FreeBSD or the dreaded "Can't connect to X DISPLAY" 
error, make these changes to /usr/ports/www/jakarta-tomcat5/Makefile:

In the do-install target: 


-e "/%%JAVA_ARGS%%/s//\"-Dcatalina.home=${APP_HOME:S/\//\\\//g}\",/g" \


-e "/%%JAVA_ARGS%%/s//\"-Djava.awt.headless=true\",\"-Xms128m\",\"-Xmx256m\",
\"-Dcatalina.home=${APP_HOME:S/\//\\\//g}\",/g" \

then do:

make -DFORCE_PKG_REGISTER do-install

This will overwrite the current tomcat50ctl but will preserve your existing 
tomcat installation.

PortMaintainer:  Kang Liu  - which email address is correct for you?  both and appear 
in /usr/ports/www/jakarta-tomcat5/Makefile
