Unhappy Tomcat 5.0.28 into Fedora Core 2

I just install J2SDK 1.4.2 and tomcat 5.0.28 into the Fedora Core 2; and modified the /etc/profile is like as following:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/j2sdk1.4.2_06
export CATALINA_BASE=/usr/tomcat
export CATALINA_HOME=/usr/tomcat

and reboot the machine; Finally try startup the tomcat "/usr/tomcat/bin/ It prompted:
[root@localhost bin]#
-bash: command not found

How do I fix it? I sure that the Java already installed, coz i check "echo $JAVA_HOME" it shown the path correctly! and type from console "javac" it shown parameter correctly.

I think you are trying to run a command which it's not in the system path. So try to run:


to find out where this file is. If you get several options, try to run the full-qualifed one. For this, copy the line with the path and file name and launch it. If you don't get the right output, you might need to update the file's database by running as root:


Afterwards, repeat the first step again.

There should also be possible to restart the service by running (as root):

/sbin/service <name_of_service> start

You can find out the name of the service having a look at /etc/init.d/ directory

I don't know if my help will be useful, but it's the most I can do.

Good luck!

Try the following command:

/bin/netstat -puta


/bin/netstat -putan

if you don't want address translation.

Although I'm not absolutely sure, I think the service name for tomcat is 'httpd'.

Good luck!

PD: Can anyone to confirm the last thing?
