Voltdb not start
Aug 5, 2013
VoltDB installed, but in time he startup me the error.

os: CentOS 6.4
voltdb version: 3.4
java version: 1.7.0_25 - OpenJDK

cd /tmp
curl | tar -xz
sudo mv voltdb-voltdb-3.4 /opt/voltdb
cd /opt/voltdb/
sudo ./bin/voltdb

[root@pc voltdb]# sudo ./bin/voltdb
ls: cannot access /opt/voltdb/voltdb/voltdb-3.*.jar: No such file or directory
Couldn't find compiled VoltDB jar to run.

There really is no file "/opt/voltdb/voltdb/voltdb-3.*.jar".

Anyone have a solution for this?

[root@pc voltdb]# ll /opt/voltdb/voltdb/
