Jira does not start. Wrong Java Path?

When i try to start my self hosted version of jira via the command ./start-jira.sh i get the following error in catalina.out logfile:

/opt/atlassian/jira/bin/catalina.sh: Line 389: /opt/atlassian/jira/jre/bin/bin/java: Not a file or directory

I found out that the path (/opt/atlassian/jira/jre/bin/bin/java) seems to be wrong. In the path there is (.../bin/bin/...). The java file actually is located in /opt/atlassian/jira/jre/bin/java. How can i edit this path in jira so the java file would be found?

my server infos:
x86_64 GNU/Linux
Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS

Thank you for your help

Odd, I'd check the "setenv.sh" file to begin with - that's the usual place to do environment stuff

i set the JRE_HOME in setenv.sh manually to the jira jre path. now that works fine. but now its a performance problem :) catalina.out says: Could not reserve enough space for object heap

i immediately ordered a bigger vserver at my hoster. from mid of next week on i will have a dual core driven, 8gb RAM, Linux Sever running Ubuntu and with NO PLESK anymore.

I think with this machine jira will work much better.

i will post my experiences asap.
