java tools to support agile story cards and issue tracking

    guys,

    I am trying to evaluate tools that support agile story cards and issue
    tracking. I have started with JIRA and am hitting all sorts of
    problems trying to get it working. I am on the point of giving up. So
    I was wondering, what other tools are out there? I prefer open source
    if possible but will consider proprietary software. At the moment the
    only other tool I am aware of is the proprietary mingle tool from
    ThoughtWorks. At the moment I am so cheesed off with JIRA problems
    that mingle looks like being the winner by default!

    The main thing I want the tool to do is to support agile story cards.
    The issue tracking is only useful insofar as if the tool offer it it
    should be integrated into its other features.

    Of course, the tool does not have to be written in java but I think it
    probably will be. We will be using it to do some java development
    using subversion as the source code control tool.

    Regards,

    Andrew Marlow

    With some help from JIRA support I have got JIRA working. However, it
    looks to me like JIRA is aimed at issue tracking in the same way as
    bugzilla, mantis etc etc. So I see no advantage. What I am after is
    something that knows about agile stories, tasks, etc. Whilst JIRA can
    be told about these it does not come out of the box. Mingle does but
    it seems expensive to me. I wonder what other options there are. Any
    ideas please?
