Hello Michael.

Thanks for your reply.  The problem mysteriously vanished shortly after I posted the message to the list.  While the problem existed, I was not getting a metadata sets prompt; the display went back to what appears when one forst opens the GLI.  I was able to create a collection based on another collection, select metadata set and proceed normally.

Thanks again.

Hi Arthur,

Hmmm... strange problem. Do you get the Metadata Sets prompt after the
title/description prompt? Try checking the Java Console from your
browser to see if there are any exceptions showing. Also, have a look on
the server machine to see if the collection has actually been created
(in the Greenstone "collect" directory).

If nothing else works I'd recommend you try Greenstone v2.63. While I
can't think of any changes in the new version that would affect this,
further troubleshooting will be easier if you're using the latest version.

Let me know how you get on,

I am running version 2.62 on Red Hat Linun AS 4.  I have installed the
GLI as an applet.  The problem I am having is in creating a new
collection that is not based on an existing collection.  After
entering the collection title and the description on content and
clicking ok, I am returned to the applet but nothing has happened. 
The title bar says "Greenstone Librarian Interface Mode: Librarian
Collection: No Collection"  The same thing happens when I use the
expert mode.  The applet creates a new collection only if I base it on
an existing collection.

Is this likely to be a local configuration issue, a known problem or
something else?

I'd appreciate any light anyone can shed on the situation.
