Thanks a lot, Richard
 
We did it last week; but we found that wvWare would need also an update. Only when we did it so, everything went right.
What we did was to symlink wvWare from /usr/bin to the bin/ folder in the Greenstone installation. So, when wvWare is updated, we don't need to worry about copying it to Greenstone installation.
 
Thanks again
Mariana

Hi Mariana,


I would first suggest you ensure you have the most recent version of iconv installed for your debian version, if not update it.

Then if that doesnt work, please tell us which exact Debian distribution you are running.


Regards,

Richard

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
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
