Subject [greenstone-users] Greenstone does not find gsdlsite.cfg o(n Debian Sarge)
Hi all.
I'm trying to install Greenstone on Debian Sarge. After some unsuccesful
attempts, a decided to compile and this time I receive at least an
error message from the server:
The gsdlsite.cfg configuration file does not contain a valid gsdlhome
entry. Gsdlsite.cfg should reside in the same directory as the library
executable file."

In the browser I type http://myserver/cgi-bin/library. When I run the
executable "library" from command line, it indeed runs. But not from the
outside browser. I am aware that in the command line case the
environment variables may vary. But the gsdlsite.cfg file is really
where it should be. What should I do first?

Also, trying to install on Windows (whatever Windows, ME or Win2000, for
instance), the installer complains about not findig Java. But in the
documentation I find nothing about having to install some kind of JRE or
something. Couuld any of you be so kind giving me a hand?
