after system crash, can't get idea to start (even with idea reinstall)

Had a system crash in fedora, and now IDEA won't start up.

I have downloaded both IDEA 10.5.2 and Sun's jdk1.6.0_27, put both on my desktop.

in idea.sh I set
export JAVA_HOME="/home/jedierikb/Desktop/jdk1.6.0_27"

when I run idea.sh... nothing happens.

I echo'd $IDEA_JDK/bin/java $JVM_ARGS -Djb.restart.code=88 $IDEA_MAIN_CLASS_NAME $*

and got this back:

/home/jedierikb/Desktop/jdk1.6.0_27/bin/java -Xms128m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=250m -XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=64m -ea -Xbootclasspath/a:../lib/boot.jar -Djb.restart.code=88 com.intellij.idea.Main

and nothing else.

I tried running that command myself and got back:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/intellij/idea/Main
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.intellij.idea.Main

at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:247)
Could not find the main class: com.intellij.idea.Main.  Program will exit.

I have deleted every hidden IDEA and intelli directoryj from ~/ (e.g. .IntelliJIdea10 )

Any suggestions?

Hello,

What is the value of CLASSPATH env var on IJ startup? Can you check that $IDEA_HOME/lib/bootstrap.jar is not corrupted?

Try to reinstall IDEA, probably some files were corrupted.
