Subject [greenstone-devel] Word .doc conversion fails after system upgrade
Hi fellows
 
 
We have a Debian Server hosting the Greenstone 2.70 version. The server needed a huge upgrade, and we did so last week to kernel 2.6.22-2 and also the majority of system applications. Since then , the import process for Word documents fails.
 
This is part of the error log:
 
Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
Diagnostic: (wvWare.c:1276) picture 0x01 here, at offset 0 in Data Stream, obj is 0, ole is 0

Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
Diagnostic: (text.c:867) iconv_open fail: 22, cannot convert CP1252 to unicode
The rest is the same (we refer to the conversion diagnostic) and the resulting Html document shows (apparently) every single character from the original 'converted' in a question mark (?).
Everything was OK before upgrade, so we suspect from some weird change that affected the Greenstone installation. We installed the new 2.74 version but we still get it fail when importing. Errors are the same.
 
We will appreciate any help or advice.
Thanks in advance
