Subject [greenstone-users] Installation problems
I'm new to the list and new to Greenstone so I apologize if these are
duplicated questions, but the archive only goes up to Feb 2006 and I
didn't find anything relevant there.

I've got two problems so far. First off, platform info:
grimland@felix:~$ uname -a
SunOS felix 5.9 Generic_118558-25 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Blade-100

No matter which (North American) mirror I use to download the 2.70
version of the Unix distribution, or which download method I use
(netscape, wget, etc.) I can't seem to get a tarball which untars
cleanly:
grimland@felix:~$ ls gs*
gsdl-2.70-unix.tar
grimland@felix:~$ tar -xvf gsdl-2.70-unix.tar
x gsdl-2.70-unix, 0 bytes, 0 tape blocks
x gsdl-2.70-unix/src, 0 bytes, 0 tape blocks
x gsdl-2.70-unix/src/lib, 0 bytes, 0 tape blocks
x gsdl-2.70-unix/src/lib/cfgread.cpp, 6204 bytes, 13 tape blocks
x gsdl-2.70-unix/src/lib/text_t.cpp, 21222 bytes, 42 tape blocks
...<SNIP>...
x gsdl-2.70-unix/gsdl/gli/src/org/greenstone/gatherer/WGet.java, 13124
bytes, 26 tape blocks
x gsdl-2.70-unix/gsdl/gli/src/org/greenstone/gatherer/collection, 0
bytes, 0 tape blocks
tar: directory checksum error
grimland@felix:~$

Well, the resulting directory tree is ~61M (of the ~91M of the tarball),
so I go into the Unix directory and try to run the Install.sh just to
see what happens:
grimland@felix:~$ du -hs *
61M gsdl-2.70-unix
91M gsdl-2.70-unix.tar
grimland@felix:~$ cd gsdl-2.70-unix/Unix/
grimland@felix:~/gsdl-2.70-unix/Unix$ ./Install.sh
Which version of Greenstone do you want installed:
[E]nglish, (F)rench, (R)ussian or (S)panish?
> E
./Install.sh: test: unknown operator ==
grimland@felix:~/gsdl-2.70-unix/Unix$
