Not clear if you're having problem with download, installation or both. Here's some quick instructions to TRY:

1. Use wget (hopefully you have this) to download Greenstone:


2. Unpack the zipped tarball:

tar xzf gsdl-2.72-unix.tar.gz

3. Change to the Unix directory:

cd gsdl-2.72-unix/Unix

4. Run the installation script:


5. Follow the instructions in the installation script. You can quit the installation at any time if you "panic" by pressing Control-C. Even if you get all the way through the installation, you can always run the script or delete the entire directory in which Greenstone install into.

Let me know how it goes...

I am a newbie to Greenstone and I'm trying to download the best (and
simplest) version for the beginning of an institutional repository at
Washburn University. I'm having problems downloading version 2.72 on a
RedHat Linux machine - unknown version of RedHat. I have been through the
Installer's Guide, but having much luck. I have not checked the Greenstonewiki for installation problems. I thought I would start with the listserv.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you!
