I'm on f18 and I'm working on JEE and web application.
I installed eclipse kepler (JEE version) and tomcat 6 from repository.
Everything was right until the server stopped by its self and I haven't been able to start it any more...
So I tried by installing tomcat 7 both "by hand" (meaning uncompressing the tar file and moving it on /usr/share) and by command line
rpm -i tomcat-7.0.40-1.fc18.noarch.rpm
but nothing...I'm still not able to start my service
So I looked around to find a solution..
There is who says it's an environment variable problem (I tried setting JRE_HOME in the .bashrc file but nothing changed), someone else that's a port problem...in the meantime I got a "collection" of exceptions launching it from eclipse and insults from the terminal..
I found this
$ rpm -qa | grep tomcat
but some of them are dependencies of kepler so I cannot remove it with yum.
If I knew where that pkgs are installed I could remove it by hand and but I don't...
I just would like to remove all pkgs that can generate conflict and proceed with a new, proper installation...
If it is possible I will install tomcat7 but no problem if it is tomcat6.
Does anybody can help me?
or better does anybody can explain me how it works in order to choose the tomcat I like and possibly install both???
