Hello Huw Wyn,

If you're installing from the downloaded source tarball, this issue is
caused by the tarball being created incorrectly - it is missing the
indexers SVN module.

If the reason you're installing from source is because you were
getting an error about libgdbm2.so when running the pre-compiled
packages run the following command (if you have super user privileges):
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2 /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.1
The reason you have to do this is the pre-compiled binaries are
dynamically linked, and not statically linked. The problem will be
fixed in the next release.

If installing from the pre-compiled binaries isn't an option, you can
install from subversion. Instructions are on this page:
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Install_SVN_on_Linux
Just make sure subversion is installed beforehand (I think it's
installed by default on CentOS, but just to be sure):
sudo yum install subversion

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
John Rowe
