Missing / in /etc/bashrc

    I downloaded the Hortonworks+Sandbox+2.0+VirtualBox.ova and run it from Ubuntu. Thank you for putting this together. Looks like a great learning environment!

    But when did an ssh into the VM and typed “jps” to see what java processes were running I got:

    [root@sandbox conf]# jps
    -bash: jps: command not found
    [root@sandbox conf]# which jps
    /usr/bin/which: no jps in (/usr/jdk64/jdk1.6.0_31bin:/usr/lib64/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)

    Seemed the forward slash in the java path was missing. I found the culprit in /etc/bashrc and fixed it:

    export PATH="${JAVA_HOME}/bin:$PATH"

    Now jps and java are available from the command line.
