I'm having troubles getting opennms to start.

Fedora 5
Kerenl = 2.6.15-1.2054
Java = j2sdk1.4.2_13 /usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_13
Tomcat = 4.1.18 /etc/tomcat4/tomcat.conf
Postgresql = 8.1.3
opennms = 1.2.9 /opt/Opennms

The installation of the webapps takes an extremely long time.  See next section:

[root@nagios OpenNMS]# bin/install -y -w /var/tomcat4/webapps -W
/var/tomcat4/server/lib

Installer completed successfully!

When I try to start openNMS here is what I get:
[root@nagios OpenNMS]# /etc/init.d/opennms -v start Starting OpenNMS:

                                                           [FAILED]

Heres the last entry in the output.log:

Is this a specific section of OpenNMS your talking about (class wise) or are you basically asking if I can ping other devices?

I can ping other devices without a problem, but I don't seem to find a classes sections in OpenNMS anywhere.

Could you please point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

I've resolved the problem.

The paths to Java were defined improperly.

januismer,

In the cases where you resolve your own issue, you can ask to have it PAQ'ed to the EE DB and your points refunded.  To do this, you click on the Support link at the upper right part of this page.  Then you post a 0 point Q referencing the URL for this Q.  You also state your intentions.  In this case, since you solved your own issue you ask for a PAQ/Refund.  A moderator will pick up your request and post a comment here stating your request and giving participants 4 days to post any objections.  If there are none, then your request will be fulfilled.   I hope this helps.
