Hi Courtney,

We don't make a binary distribution of Greenstone for Solaris, so you
will need to compile Greenstone from source.

To do this you need to:

- Download and install the GDBM package, if you don't already have it
- Download and unpack the Source version of Greenstone
- Run "setenv CC gcc"
- Run "setenv LD gcc"
- Make sure you have GNU make installed and on your path
- In the "gsdl" directory, run "./configure --with-gdbm=<gdbm-dir>"
(where <gdbm-dir> is the location of the GDBM you installed above)
- Run "make" (or "gmake")
- Run "make install" (or "gmake install")

Everything going well, you should now have the Greenstone binaries and
can start configuring your webserver.
