Newly installed Atlassian SDK - Jira fails to start, The following plugins are required by JIRA, but have not been started message thrown - how do I fix this?

Installed the Atlassian SDK on a Ubuntu 12.04 LTS System 76 notebook with 1.9GB RAM. Unit might need more RAM or there may be some config settings that can fix Jira not starting when I use the URL: http://waltubuntu:2990/jira/

Here is the error that is thrown. I have attached the logs for your review.

FOund the answer in Another Question here.

Seems the SDK or perhaps the SAL libraries used by our plugins is incompatible with Java 7 (even tried the latest to no avail).

Download java/jdk 6 (1.6.0_34 is the latest i think) and update your JAVA_HOME variable to point to that location.

Verify the change (requires running consoles to be closed and restarted) by running java -version

Run the sdk as normal and everything should work fine.

That is only one possibility. We need to know more about the setup.

What version of Java and Jira are you using?

Not an answer, if you are working with the user to define his question more please comment on his question. Inflating the answer count makles others less likely to look.

I never had a problem before the latest 4.x SDK. Now I can't get JIRA to run standalone or with my plugin.

Hey, question, do you also see this error when the plugin container first starts?
