(just the countdown before someone else here tells you to go ask your 
question in a Fedora forum)

A word of explanation, before someone else puts it more rudely :
on this Tomcat users forum, most of the helpful people do not have all 
the various platforms available, where Tomcat /can/ run.  So they tend 
to concentrate on the "standard" version of Tomcat, as downloaded from 
the "official" Tomcat site "".
That standard Tomcat version does not start in the same way as the 
version you are using.  For one, it does not, I believe, use the jsvc 
wrapper which seems to be the source of your problem. jsvc is a separate 
package, not part of Tomcat itself.

The version you are using, is a pre-packaged version, from your Linux 
flavor's packaging experts, who have created their own method to start 
Tomcat, using their own scripts etc, and jsvc.  They have probably very 
good reasons to do that, and that is not the point.  The point is that 
people here do not generally know what happens in one of these 
platform-specific versions.

In other words, basically, you would have more chances of being helped 
by asking the Fedora people for help.
