Subject [greenstone-users] GLI problems on OS X Server
I just finished installing Greenstone 2.5 on a Mac OS X server. The machine
is running OS X 10.2.8 and has a 1.33 Ghz processor with 256 M of memory.
The server is more or less "out of the box" and running minimal
applications.

Installation went fine. The only hint of trouble was a post-install message
that said my computer wasn't serving Greenstone pages, though it is serving
the sample collections just fine at both the local and internet addresses.

When I try to open a collection with GLI, I get the splash screen and then
the application hangs right after startup. I started up GLI from the
terminal, and here's the output I got.

Collections won't build from the web collector either. Any help greatly
appreciated.
