On Debian : LogConfigurationException on Tomcat deploy

Hi, I am encountering this exception on the deployment of Alfresco by Tomcat :

Oct 27, 2006 6:56:42 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.HostConfig deployWAR
SEVERE: Error deploying web application archive alfresco.war
org.apache.commons.logging.LogConfigurationException: java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError (Caused by java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError)

I am very novice with Java. I have understood this may have something to do with Log4J but I do not know how to get any further.

I am using Debian with the following packages :

- Tomcat 5.5.20-1
- Liblog4j 1.2.13-1
- Alfresco Community war 1.4.0
- Sun Java 5 JRE & JDK 1.5.0-08-1

It seems they are fine versions that are supposed to work together…

Would anybody here have a clue about what might be failing ?


The full startup log follows :
