[Red5] Calling Ubuntu Red5 Users...

Yeah, I'm on Hardy 8.x. What is the Red5 home directory? Is that the /dist/
directory? I followed your advice in a previous thread and created separate
folders for working copies: ie "dist_3324" & "dist_3000". I'm definitely
starting the server via the startup scripts in my distribution directories0
through Red5Plugin. So does that mean I absolutely need to set the RED5_HOME
I only have one webapp that I'm running, a personal testing project for
exploring and abstracting persistence and the like. I don't have the MySQL
jar (or any JARs except my compiled project source code JAR as per
Red5Plugin) in my webapp's library, all of my JARs are in the common
library. I did this because I heard that the latest server is still having
Tomcat problems with finding JARs.
I'll have to fool around with my Java distribution, but I *think* it's
working fine. I can compile, JAR, and run other non-Red5 applications just
fine, so I assume that means that there's nothing wrong with my Java distro.
This is the least of my worries right now, but I've noticed that when
starting BootStrapper, I get no console output. Is there a way to turn
console output on? I've been working around this on Windows by using a
"tailer" file which updates itself at an interval, reading the stdout.log

And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of
