I'm trying to install JBoss on one of our virtual servers. I downloaded the jems-installer to install JBoss, but it's expecting to run in a GUI. This is the error I get.

[root@S3WEB tmp]# java -jar jems-installer-1.2.1.CR4.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/java/jre1.6.0_25/lib/i386/xawt/libmawt.so: libXext.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

How can I install JBoss without a GUI then.

System: Redhat Linux Enterprise 5.5

The JBoss documentation has an entry for this question. This link is for JBoss 4, but I guess the general approach has not changed, yet. Hope this helps.

Oh, stupid me. I had skimmed through that page, should've read it more carefully. Apparently, I'm supposed to use the jems-installer jar to install jboss. I was attempting to install jems-installer, thinking its installation was a prequisite to jboss. Thanks for the link Axel! –  gAMBOOKa May 22 '11 at 6:15
