|Subject||[greenstone-users] RE: Error which will prevent the collection from being|
This continues my posting sent April 23, 2007 5:33 AM
I loaded a 4000-file subset of the prior largish collection into a new collection. This time the Create "Build Collection" ran to completion, and activated the "Preview" tab. However, when I activated Preview, instead of showing the expected collection preview, it terminated the Librarian application with the following output in the terminal window from which "./gli.sh" had been issued.
So I copied the string "http://hgladney.net/home/gladney/gsdl?c=snotest2&l=en&a=p&p=about&uq=1177338374748" into the URL input field of a running Firefox browser instance. That returned a 404 Not Found message, which presumably is correct because the GSDL instance is in fact in directory /gsdl rather than in /home/gladney/gsdl/. And the following new file appeared in the /tmp directory.
What is happening & why? And more important to me, How can I recover and move forward?
With a largish collection (approximately 60,000 files, which include numerous duplicates, in 36 top-level folders) I receive the message <An error has occurred which will prevent the collection from being previewed>. I retried. Received the same message. The build progress indicator indicates 50%.
Attempted to recover. However, in the Librarian's dialog for the Create tab, "Build Collection" is enabled but the option choice between "Complete Rebuild" and "Minimal Rebuild" is disabled.
How can I proceed?
Note: Greenstone Users Digest, Vol 42, Issue 17 (and also Issue 12) contains a note asking about this error. Michael Dewsnip's 27 Sep 2006 answer includes: "This is a bug which will be fixed in Greenstone v2.71." But I am running Greenstone v2.72!
The Dewsnip answer does not include a work-around suggestion.
