I studied information science and did computers from the old Commodore VC-20 onwards.

I started during study as pc-admin for DOS, Windows, WfW and all related software and hardware stuff.

Later I switched over to servers, starting with linux-samba and NT 3.5/4.0.

My first job made me a Solaris admin in a huge company with over 500 solaris servers. There I got every day a new interesting problem that I have never encountered before.

My next job brought me into project management and later back to system administration - mainly Linux. It was frustrating to manage a project when you knew that doing the admin`s job yourselv would have the current step finished in less than 30 minutes...

@slm that Q is about co6. So the version of the kernel driver seems to be important indeed.

@slm Yes I did try. I suspect that there is something more or newer in Ubuntu.

comment Why does file ownership matter within an RPM or DEB package?
In rpm this does not matter. You do not need to be root to create a rpm.

That java app is directly started with java or is this a proper tomcat-app which is deployed?

wiki.ubuntu.com/SecurityTeam/Roadmap/… uid is not the problem. You have to allow ptrace for your session.

ptrace not PERMITTED sounds like you are using gdb with the wrong uid.
