I need help!


VuFind is installed on a Solaris 10 SPARC box in the same directory as our SAMP (XAMPP).


When running ./vufind.sh start, nothing happens – it hangs.


As part of troubleshooting we’ve tried to start jetty separately thus:


java -jar solr/jetty/start.jar


And get the following error:


java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.mortbay.xml.XmlConfiguration

        at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(URLClassLoader.java:200)

        at java.security.AccessController.doPrivileged(Native Method)

        at java.net.URLClassLoader.findClass(URLClassLoader.java:188)

        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:306)

        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:251)

        at org.mortbay.start.Main.invokeMain(Main.java:179)

        at org.mortbay.start.Main.start(Main.java:512)

        at org.mortbay.start.Main.main(Main.java:119)


Anyone know what’s wrong and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.
