The latest version of Greenstone 3 needs lots of changes to catch up and
work well again, because our focus in the recent weeks was all on
Greenstone 2 for its release.

Therefore, for now, use the version of Greenstone 3 you have. In a
little while, GS3 will be sufficiently updated for you to work with the
latest from SVN. The SVN url (from TRAC) for GS3 is
svn co http://svn.greenstone.org/greenstone3/trunk greenstone3

2. About your language translation questions, I've forwarded them to the
person who knows a lot about the language interface for GS and GLI.
Though the developer in question is out of the country at the moment, I
am hopeful they may respond when they find the time.

Probably this is because the error output code has changed.

The old error message you encountered said:

Therefore, will you try again after adding Java's bin library to your path.

For instance my PATH starts with:
/opt/jdk1.5.0_10/bin:/opt/jdk1.5.0_10/bin/javac:/path/to/apache-ant-1.6.5:
/path/to/fedora3/server/bin:/path/to/fedora3/client/bin:/opt/jdk1.5.0_10/jre:<more>

As you see in the above, I have the PATH to the JRE at the end. Try that
first. Otherwise (and I hope this is not necessary), you can try to add
your JDK's bin folder and javac to the PATH, similar to how my PATH
contains them both.

Tell me how you get on,
Anupama
