I do not think others here are familiar with (or otherwise remember) the
particulars of Greenstone 2.51 to be able to successfully help you. Will
you perhaps consider trying version Greenstone 2.81? If that does not
work either, then I will try to locate 2.51 and test out your problem on
it and see if I work out how to get it to create a collection of images
An important bugfix to the latest GLI, in case you attempt using
Greenstone 2.81 (while doing the following may not be immediately
necessary in your particular case, if you do encounter any parse
exceptions when running GLI, please attempt the step below):
1. Please go into your Greenstone installation folder's
And make a copy of the file "RemoveContentBeforeRootElementXMLReader.java"
Rename this copy as RemoveContentBeforeRootElementXMLReader.java_orig
2. Download the updated file from:
3. Put the downloaded file in gli/src/org/greenstone/gatherer/util to
replace the original.
4. Open a Windows DOS console or Linux xterm, go into your Greenstone
installation folder. Then change into your gli directory:
> cd gli
5. Now you're inside the GLI folder, compile up GLI by typing the
following in a Windows DOS prompt:
Or by typing the following in a Linux x-term:
6. Try to run GLI and explode that CDS/ISIS database again.
Tell us if things do not work out well.
