Rendering chart from bootchart

Hi everyone,

I have been seeing very long boot times for the last few months so I ran 
bootchart. But I can't render the chart after booting. The web interface 
seems to be down. And the java application supplied with bootchart 
generates the following error.

> $ java -jar /usr/share/java/bootchart.jar
> Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/cli/ParseException
> Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.commons.cli.ParseException
> 	at$
> 	at Method)

> 	at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
> 	at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal(
> Could not find the main class: org.bootchart.Main. Program will exit.

I have the Java Development Kit files installed:

> $ rpm -qa *openjdk*
> java-1.6.0-openjdk-
> java-1.6.0-openjdk-devel-
> java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin-

What seems to be wrong?
