New install errors

I just installed the latest wildfire linux version and when I try to start it or stop it, I receive the errors below. Am I doing something wrong?

/opt/wildfire/bin/wildfire start

Starting wildfire

nohup: appending output to `nohup.out’’

/opt/wildfire/bin/wildfire stop

Shutting down wildfire

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/install4j/runtime/Launcher

These are the instal steps that I did per the documentation…

tar -xzvf wildfire_2_4_0.tar.gz

mv wildfire /opt

I looked in the nohup.out file and this is what it contained.

Exception in thread “main” java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/install4j/runtime/Launcher


I wonder why you install 2.4.0 is you perform a new installation, but this should not be the cause for the problem you see. It seems that the classpath is not build right, could you please run “sh -x /opt/wildfire/bin/wildfire stop” and check the classpath or post the output here.


The last three lines should match (except of the install-path):

Shutting down wildfire

I actually installed 2.6. I just copy and pasted the insall instructions. I downloaded the rpm and the install went fine.

I seem to be getting the same error. I installed 2.6.2 via RPM.

I’'m running RH Ent Linux 4. When I look in nohup.out it is empty after shutting down the server.
