Thank you for your support!
I have a GSDL 3 in my local Linux. It's the SUSE 10. But i installed it with the binary file. And i had problem by installing the GSDL 3. Only when i installed the Java in folder /opt, might i install the binary file of GSDL.Otherwise the binary file said always that it can't find the Java in my Linux. Hope,you can tell me why.
Now turn to the ant. I tried to install the GSDL with SSH like you wrote. Changed the build.xml file with the file online. I got the same error Unexpected element "condition". But at line 125 not at 94.
