I see Maven on there, in /home/hudson/tools/maven

Are you defining a Hudson maven build, or trying to invoke mvn directly?

Sorry, don't know.

Do you have an idea of what you need?  I have zero experience of
selenium, but if it needs to drive a UI then I assume you'll need Xvfb
[1] etc.

That should have worked.  I've added myself and Jukka to that alias so
hopefully somebody will see it; though the response might just be to
post here though <g>

[1] Word to the wise, the Xvfb package dependencies appear to be a bit
lacking, you also need to install a rendering engine or else the log
file gets a bit big {ahem} :-)
