Subject Unable to start tomcat
Date Sat, 19 Feb 2011 06:16:36 GMT

I'm running tomcat 5.5.23 on CentOS 5.5. I just re-installed it and get the following error
in my catalina.out file:
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /usr/share/tomcat5
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /usr/share/tomcat5
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /usr/share/tomcat5/temp
Using JRE_HOME:       /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk-
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina
       at Method)

       at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
       at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.init(
       at org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap.main(

Hours of googling suggests that some jars could be corrupted but I've since un-installed and
re-installed it twice and still getting the same error.
