Re: WAS 6.1 installation wont start on ubuntu2012-03-23T19:48:08ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I found this article discussing problems with WAS 6.1 and Ubuntu. The article that he references is gone, but I was able to find an archive on the Wayback Machine.
Essentially, the problem is that Ubuntu links /bin/sh with /bin/dash rather than /bin/bash. (I actually did not know that and I've changed it on mine.) Once the link was connected to /bin/bash it apparently worked OK.
