Subject [greenstone-users] java exception
I've set up Greenstone (on Linux (Ubuntu edgy) all running fine with
Apache 2 - except the library interface. I'm getting a Java NullPointer
exception. Why? As far as I can see I've got Sun Java 1.5 running but I
get this error message:

Running the Greenstone Librarian Interface
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError
at java.lang.Class.InitializeClass(libgcj.so.70)
at org.greenstone.gatherer.GatheringProg.main(GathererProg.java:73)
Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
at org.greenstone.gatherer.Gatherer.<clinit>(Gatherer.java.128)
at java.lang.Class.initializeClass(libgcj-so.70)
...1 more

In layman's terms I can see that gli and java are not quite connecting
;-) - what do I need to do?
