It does sound like permissions.

A good guide is here:

If there isn't a config file option for the run user...

Basically it sounds like all the files and folders created from the install are owned by the user, root.
As root, you can do a chown -r [[user name]] [[folder/file]]
chown (change user) -r (recursive, goes through the subfolders as well) [[user name]] tstrick [[folder]] the folder(s) JBoss needs to execute and run.

-or-

chmod a+x [[file]]
chmod (change permissions) a+x (owner, group, others gain executable permission) [[file]] (the file that you need to execute to run)


>What do you think LQo??
Am I correct, would those options work? I'm not sure which is a best practice...

Awesome!! ^_^

Though I really hope someone of greater knowledge can confirm what was the "best" way of solving the problem.

I'm also curious to know if running the install as sudo instead of logging in as root produces the same problem? I'm guessing the purpose of sudo is to grant ownership of install to the user but with the power of root?
