I am trying to start drill after downloading the release from apache mirror (0.7). Unfortunately for me its not working properly. Getting the following error

Drill log directory /var/log/drill does not exist, defaulting to /opt/drill/log
Error: Failure while attempting to start Drillbit in embedded mode. (state=,code=0)
sqlline version 1.1.6
0: jdbc:drill:zk=local

Searching around  it seems other folks have also got this error (I am on a Max osx with jdk 1.7) but none of those resolutions have addressed my error

Any command I give on the sqlline prompt gives me the No current connection message.

I tried compiling from source but that also failed (from github drill repo).
Can someone please help.
