In Ubuntu 9.04 the Alfresco install from the repositories worked right out of the box. But after the upgrade to Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) Alfresco is not supported anymore and the install files were automatically removed. After manually re-installing the 9.04 *.deb Alfresco repository I couldn't login anymore. So I installed Alfresco-Community-3.2r2-Linux-x86-Install. But I still can't get Alfresco to work again:

The following error message is shown when accessing http://localhost:8080/share : "HTTP Status 500 … javax.servlet.ServletException: org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException: 00050000 Unable to retrieve object: site-index of type: page" (see details in )

I strictly followed the Installing_and_Configuring_Alfresco_ECM_Community_Edition_3_2_r2.pdf and only made the following changes:
-  dir.root=/home/alfresco  (in
-  ALF_HOME="/usr/local/Alfresco"  (in
-  replacing all @@ALFRESCO_DIR@@ in all scripts in /usr/local/Alfresco/

In addition "soffice.bin" (OpenOffice 3.1.1), which is launched by Alfresco becomes a zombie process and needs to be killed, otherwise it keeps occupying 100% CPU-load on one core even after " stop". Moreover after issuing " stop" an error message is shown on the command-line: "SEVERE: Catalina.stop: Connection refused" (see details in )

These are my config and log files:

I want to try out and test Alfresco and need to get it up and running again. Please help!
