Hello again Leo,

Oran Fry has fixed the problem, as some preliminary testing seems to
indicate. I haven't tested anything to do with CDS/ISIS, though.

If you want to try out his fix, then
1. Please go into your Greenstone installation folder's
gli/src/org/greenstone/gatherer/util
And make a copy of the file "RemoveContentBeforeRootElementXMLReader.java"
Rename this copy as RemoveContentBeforeRootElementXMLReader.java_orig

2. Download the updated file from:
http://svn.greenstone.org/gli/trunk/src/org/greenstone/gatherer/util/RemoveContentBeforeRootElementXMLReader.java

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:
> makegli.bat
Or by typing the following in a Linux x-term:
> ./makegli.sh

6. Try to run GLI and explode that CDS/ISIS database again.

Does it work this time? Do tell us if you still have any troubles with this.

Thanks and regards,
Anupama
