RedHat node not logging as service

New to Elasticsearch and trying to install a second node. I installed on a
Redhat system initially via the tar, just removed that and installed via
the .rpm (elasticsearch-0.90.3.noarch.rpm) to run as a service. The logging
directory is owned by elasticsearch and is writable; the node corrects to
the others, but nothing is being written to the log file. When the service
is started, I get these errors from log4j:

log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (common.jna).

log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
log4j:WARN See for
more info.

If I understand them correctly, something is missing from my classpath, but
I don't know what is missing nor where to put the .jars if I did.

Any suggestions?
