hi all, I am a newbie into these forums and Alfresco and have a built in hatred of all things tomcat/java based. So I hope you wont hold any of those things against me.

Just installed the X11 package onto a SUSE box with no reported errors but cannt seem to get Alfresco to start.

Here is what is appearing in my terminal. (my typed in lines in bold)

LINUXTEST:/opt/Alfresco # /opt/Alfresco/alfresco.sh start
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /opt/Alfresco/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /opt/Alfresco/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/Alfresco/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME:       /usr/lib/jvm/java/jre

LINUXTEST:/opt/Alfresco # /opt/Alfresco/alfresco.sh stop
Using CATALINA_BASE:   /opt/Alfresco/tomcat
Using CATALINA_HOME:   /opt/Alfresco/tomcat
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: /opt/Alfresco/tomcat/temp
Using JRE_HOME:       /usr/lib/jvm/java/jre
The JVM option is invalid: -XX:MaxPermSize=128m
Could not create the Java virtual machine.

It looks like no errors on startup, but I can definitly tell you it's not running. And then I get this error on stop. Where would i look to find the JVM option to remove it. That sounded like a logical first step.

Has anyone else had this issue and can maybe point me in the right direction?

Thanks
