Aloha Ya'll,
We are very pleased to present our first fully live and approved
installation of the Marshall Foundation's digital library (you can find the
link to it on the front page, or directly at

It is not the most elegant rendition of greenstone to date, however we have
already begun working with the new 3.02 version and hope that with some
increased attention on the website we'll be able to expedite the migration
and begin enjoying the SOAP and xslt functionality... dreaming of getting
it together with something like extent at http://simile.mit.edu

Anyhow, please add our site to the list on greenstone.org, and thank you all
very very very much


Aloha ya'll

Subject: [greenstone-users] Librarian Interface dislikes recent JRE version
Date: Fri, 23 Feb 2007 05:50:55 -0800

I am attempting to run the Greenstone Librarian Interface (v2.72) under
Linux Ubuntu (version Dapper Dan), with the latest JRE version (v1.5.0_11),
and am receiving what seems to be a misleading error message ("The version
of the Java Runtime Environment you have installed is too old to run the
Greenstone Librarian Interface.")

What should I do? Or is this a Greenstone bug?

My console file follows.
gladney@hmglinux:~$ cd ../../gsdl
gladney@hmglinux:/gsdl$ cd gli
gladney@hmglinux:/gsdl/gli$ ./gli.sh
