Subject [greenstone-users] Intel/MacBook index byte order
This is more a request for information than anything else. One of
the students in our DL course
used one of the new MacBooks, with an Intel Core 2 Duo chip, to
create a Greenstone installation and
a few test collections. She then copied the her installation up to
our class server (an AMD opteron box)
and found that the indexes she'd generated on her MacBook weren't
working. By converting her indexes
to text form on a PowerPC machine and then back to ldb form on the
Opteron machine, we got things
running. But I'm a little surprised that an Intel MacBook is
generating a big endian index. Is that indeed
the problem here?
