[Talk-ca] need help with Shp-to-osm.jar

I am struggling with shp-to-osm.jar

The instructions at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Shp-to-osm.jar
are not complete enough for me.

I am pretty sure this is some kind of Java question. Unfortunately, I have 
little java experience.

I have a debian lenny machine.

I have downloaded a tar.gz file from https://github.com/iandees/shp-to-

I have a shapefile with a shp extension and a database file with a dbf 

I have found what I am looking for in the dbf file.

I have created a rules.txt file.

My java version is thus:

java -version
java version "1.6.0_18"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.8.7) (6b18-1.8.7-2~squeeze1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.0-b16, mixed mode)

java -cp shp-to-osm-0.8.1-with-dependencies.jar com.yellowbkpk.geo.shp.Main --
shapefile /home/jean/qs/Sections\ de\ vote/section_vote.shp --rulesfile 
rules.txt --osmfile output.osm 

I get the following result.

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: 
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.yellowbkpk.geo.shp.Main

Could not find the main class: com.yellowbkpk.geo.shp.Main. Program will exit.

How do I get java to look under src/main/java/ to find what I think it is 
looking for? (namely, com/yellowbkpk/geo/shp/Main...

Any tips would be appreciated.
