Seeing the above information is a good sign.
I'm a bit confused when you say it doesn't work, but you get the
appropriate startup message. What's missing is what happens _after_ you
see the ">>>". Are you saying you are unable to type anything at this
prompt? If so, start a bash shell and start Jython from there- is it any
different? Do you see a traceback? If you can type at the prompt, it is
likely working, i.e.-
If this does not work, try making a file (test.py) with one line saying
"print 4+3" (without the quotes). Then type "jython test.py" at the bash
prompt. Do you see 7 or a traceback? If it just hangs again as you say,
try export CLASSPATH="" and run it again.
The Linux distro doesn't really matter, the jvm does the work. The things
that can create problems have always created tracebacks for me in all
*nix I've used, so it would be news if this really just froze as your note
implies. If none of this works and you still can't get a useful
traceback, please forward more info- classpath, what ps aux says,
machine details, stuff like that.
