I am trying to install the 2.83 binary distribution on a hosted Ubuntu 10
server.

I have uploaded the Greenstone-2.83-linux file; made it executable. But when
I run it, I get the following:

Creating temp directory...
Extracting installer jar...
Preparing Greenstone installer...
/bin/sh: ./jre_bin: not found
Failed to extract the bundled java archive to the temp directory
You need the tar program on your PATH
Exiting

I have checked (env) and tar is indeed in my path. (which tar? /bin/tar and
/bin is in my path)

Is this a misleading message? perhaps java or some part of jre is MIA?

The files are being written to /tmp (as indicated in the docs).

peace,
beth
