Hi Melissa

Collections are not transferable between the two types of Macs without a
small modification.
Does it seem to work ok apart from being unable to view the demo collection?

Try rebuilding the demo collection on the powerpc mac - does it work now?

The collection database file is not transferable between the two.
When you need to transfer a collection, you'll need to do the following
(replace collname with the collection name)

On original machine:
once the collection has been built, go to the
gsdl/collect/collname/index/text directory.
run db2txt collname.bdb > database.txt

Copy the collection to the other machine.
in the same index/text directory on the new machine, run
txt2db collname.bdb < database.txt

Then the collection should work.

I hope this helps,
