Hi all; I’‘m trying to get Jive Messenger 2.0.1 working on my Linux Red Hat 8 system (I know it’‘s old but it’‘s what I have). I downloaded the jive_messenger_2_0_1.tar.gz binary edition. I’‘ve downloaded the JDK 1.5 RPM from Sun and installed it, and I can run “java -version”. I’‘ve installed MySQL 2.0.40 from RPM, and I’‘ve created a jivexmpp database and initialized it with the messenger_mysql.sql script. I’'ve downloaded the MySQL JODBC jar and I have that on my CLASSPATH.
I’'ve set MESSENGER_HOME, JAVA_HOME, etc. to the right values. When I try to start messenger, I get this error:
at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)
Using grep it seems like this method is in messenger.jar which is in my $MESSENGER_HOME/lib directory. So I’‘m mightily confused (I’‘ve been hacking C/C++/Perl/Python/PHP/shell/etc. for almost 20 years, but I’'m a total Java newbie).
The docs also confuse me: they seem to mention things like a messengerd init.d startup file which doesn’‘t exist. The startup.sh seems to hardcode my system as “darwin”, which it isn’‘t… although admittedly that doesn’'t seem to cause any problems from my reading of the script.
I hate to be so useless but I did search the forum for the class name above and other things and no one else seems to be having this problem :-/.
