Hi Sean

The binary installer doesn't run in a text environment, as you have found.
Use the tar gz version. Just unpack it. Then you'll need to edit the
cgi-bin/gsdlsite.cfg file by hand.
And set up your Apache in the same way you did last time.

How to do these two things can be found at
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Setting_up_an_Apache_Web_Server_for_Greenstone_2_Walkthrough
Step 8.

There is no install.sh file any more.
We need to make specific instructions like these available in the release

Regards,
Katherine
