The archives directory showed only a few jpegs, no text files.
I ran the build from a command line:
mkcol -creator firstname.lastname@example.org ssfbeta
Copied my source material to ../collect/ssfbeta/import
and edited the config file in ../collect/ssfbeta/etc
I get an error for each text file in this form:
HTMLPlug: processing annals$indian-conversion.html
Use of uninitalized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/local/gsdl/perllib/doc.pm loine 246.
Line 246 is a rather unremarkable:
ending the subroutine _calc_OID
I suspect this is why the build fails -- nothing is really imprted.
Siggghh ... I'll try a newer version this weekend. There goes another few hours and a longish commute.

have you looked in the archives directory? there should be one directory per original file. (some may be subdirectories).
check some of the doc.xml files (in archives) - do they look sensible,
eg is there text inside the <Content> tags?
are you using command line building or GLI or collector? if you are
using the collector, try using command line building. if teh archives
look fine, try running buildcol.pl with verbosity 4. do you get 761
lines of "GAPLug processing HASHxxx/doc.xml" type entries?
when you say only the last document is showing, what do you mean? a
titles list only has one document? a search only gives you one document?
what about a source classifier?
I would recommend upgrading to the latest version of Greenstone. And use the Librarian Interface for collection building, or command line
building. we don't support the collector any more.
PS, if you are having trouble with collection building, details about
how you have built the collection and the collection config file are
helpful to send with your questions.
