as promised (although somewhat belatedly) we have finished creating
a binary package of greenstone for Mac OS X.
It now features an installer that you can just double click on, and
if you have admin permissions then (hopefully) everything should be
installed in the right place, with correct permissions set up.
Instructions are also provided for people who would prefer to install
One new feature is the Greenstone Librarian Interface - a new way of
organising and building collections, without a command line in sight.
You can find it our sourceforge page at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/greenstone or it is linked directly from our
page at http://www.greenstone.org/english/download.html
Please direct any greenstone-related questions back to the list, and
any mac-specific problems with the package to me. (I know the installer
isn't the prettiest, but hopefully it works as advertised...)
