Hi Ted,

> Greenstone 3 Start-up: I just downloaded Greenstone 3 to experiment
with and see where the technology is headed, only to find that when I
try to open it, the command prompt for the GLI pops up momentarily and
then disappears and no program opens.

Try running GLI from a terminal (DOS prompt on Windows, x-term on Linux
or other terminal on Mac). Doing so will allow the output window (the
terminal) to stay open after any failure, and will therefore still
contain any output error messages. If you can mail these error messages
to us, it will help us in tracking down and correcting the problems.


> Greenstone 2.84 Preview issues: Has anyone else had issues with the
preview function? Mostly the issues seem to be directly tied into the
collection building process (I.e. browsing classifiers of metadata that
I have entered are not built), but sometimes there are just weird
things, like all the search items named untitled or a number of how many
times a search term in in the results without actually displaying any
results.

As I have not (yet) come across these problems, I need to know your
exact workflow in order to reproduce the same. Can you write up some
steps that you executed to build a new collection and search/browse
through it which then lead to the problems you have witnessed. As soon
as we can reproduce these issues here, we will start looking into fixing
them right away.

Thanks for reporting them.

Regards,
Anupama
