Hi List

Thats it for today got to get my usually workload sorted as per my time
mgt procedures go.

Anyway I made the collectios dir world write able and I was able to load
gs demo, test1 and test2
But of course test1 and test2 are emtpy.

The Greenstone Site Demo has data but I am not sure what's next except
through the gs homepage I got this Issue

Collection Status

Collections will only appear as "running" if their build.cfg files
exist, are readable, contain a valid builddate field (i.e. > 0), and are
in the collection's index directory (i.e. NOT the building directory).

Thus I run locate and I note that I have not got a build.cfg file on my
system So will proceed to trouble shoot from home over the weekend
thanks for your help So far.

Not as simple as the Linux Magazine howto.

Cheers
