Hello Samuel,

Currently Greenstone is not supported on 64-bit machines and the
Greenstone you have installed is a 32-bit version. The problem is that
the Expat.so included with Greenstone is 32-bit and the Perl loader is
looking for a 64-bit version. To fix this you will need to run:

yum install perl-XML-Parser.x86_64

as the root user on the server machine.

Hope this helps,
Sam of the Greenstone Team
