 The problem you are now having appears to be due to the use of a security manager; either
turn that off, or update the appropriate properties file to include all the necessary entries
to allow cyclos to work.  I have no idea where Ubuntu places (or even names) the security
properties file, and certainly no idea what needs to be added to make cyclos work with one.

Thanks Chuck, One could argue to not use a package manager at all,
however I would rather use the package manager for this to make things
easier down the road.  I did manage to get a bit further, and you are
right about the security manager.

I got rid of the errors in the previous post by setting privileges for
the classes and libs (see below), but now I'm stuck on mysql

Here is a brief snip from my error log

Jan 18, 2010 2:05:07 AM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext listenerStart
SEVERE: Exception sending context initialized event to listener instance of class org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener
org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'sessionFactory'
defined in class path resource [nl/strohalm/cyclos/spring/persistence.xml]: Invocation of
init method failed; nested exception is java.lang.RuntimeException: Error connecting to database

Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Error connecting to database at jdbc:mysql://localhost/cyclos3?useUnicode=true&characterEncoding=utf8
	at nl.strohalm.cyclos.setup.DataBaseConfiguration.validateConnection(
Caused by: com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.CommunicationsException: Communications link failure

I have the following policies in:
vi /etc/tomcat6/policy.d/50local.policy

// The permissions granted to the context WEB-INF/classes and lib directories
 grant codeBase "file:${catalina.base}/webapps/cyclos/WEB-INF/classes/-" {
 grant codeBase "file:${catalina.base}/webapps/cyclos/WEB-INF/lib/-" {

// The permission granted to your JDBC driver
 grant codeBase "jar:file:${catalina.base}/webapps/cyclos/WEB-INF/lib/mysql-connector-java-5.1.7-bin.jar!/-"
      permission "localhost:3306", "connect";

I think maybe my JDBC permissions are not quite right, or there is something with the driver,
but I'm not sure...

Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks again!
