Subject [greenstone-users] problems installing 2.81 on linux server
I'm looking for assistance on installing Greenstone 2.81 on a remote server running Centos 5. I've used 2.80 for
another site using the same remote server, so I know that end is fine.

I've ftp'd the Greenstone-2.81-linux.bin file to a public_html directory. Then I run the following command line
via Putty:

[root@host public_html]# ./Greenstone-2.81-linux.bin

Unfortunately, this always returns the following error message:

Creating temp directory...
Extracting installer jar...
Preparing Greenstone installer...
Launching Installer ...
No graphics environment available, reverting to text

The installer exited with an error
Greenstone may not be correctly installed
Deleting the temp directory
[root@host public_html]#

I've also tried installing the -2.81-linux-binary.tar.gz version. That unzips fine, but I can't find the install.sh file that

Any help on getting 2.81 installed would be greatly appreciated.
