Subject [greenstone-users] Hashing problem?
I am using Greenstone for a PDF image only document collection. I have
managed to create the collection and import a multitude files in the
collection (using the Unknownplug plugin for various reasons). The files
have been annotated and the collection has been compiled successfully.
However, in the web interface it appears that a number of files cannot
be located (file not found).

A more careful look indicated that the problem appeared to (most
probably) be a hash (unique identifier) problem. I am using the default
hash method (even though I have tested other options as well). The
expected URL of several (but NOT ALL) files is different than the
actual. The same stands if I use the PDF plugin with the option to
convert to multipage jpg.

Thank you a priori
George G.
