Jive Messenger 1.0.4 Install Problem Linux

I am having a problem installing Messenger 1.0.4 on my linux server running RH7.3 & Tomcat. After I’'ve downloaded the the linux.bin file and chmod a+x and ./ I get the following error(s). I have successfully installed the Jive Forums 3.1.x on the same server so I know I have met the requirements. I am trying to deploy this as an app-server installation. any help would be much appreciated. Any chance of just offering a generic tar.gz version? Like they do for the Forums and Knowledgebase. Thanks,

Rob

That’‘s a good idea. I’‘ll make sure there’'s a plain tarball in the next release (which will occur this week).

The installer requires Swing to run and I’‘m guessing from the error you don’‘t have a GUI on your server box. If you don’'t want to wait for the next release, run the installer on a box with a GUI, then grab the files in the created directory and move them over to your server. This is a case where the added convenience of a graphical installer is backfiring on us.

Let me know if you need more help with this.

Thanks for the follow up. I look forward to the next release this week in tar form.

Thanks Again.
