Trying to install cassandra on linux from latest stable release - http://cassandra.apache.org/download/ - 1.2.6
I have modified the cassndra.yaml to point to a custom directory instead of /var since I do not have write access on /var
I am seeing this error on startup. Not able to find any answers on google yet since the release seems relatively new. Just posting it here in case its a silly mistake on my side.
Same distribution file worked fine on my macos x86_64 machine.
