Greenstone is up and running (mostly) on our Solaris 2.8 webserver.
However, I am having some problems with image display, and using the
ImagePlug & PDFPlug.

The first problem is that images are not displayed. I am getting the "Dummy
text to sidestep display bug" error on the document page. Here is an
example of an archives xml.doc from one of my test runs:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no" ?>
<!DOCTYPE Archive (View Source for full doctype...)>
- <Archive>
- <Section>
- <Description>
<Metadata
name="gsdlsourcefilename">/opt/local/gsdl/collect/FWS/import/paulhed.jpg</Me
tadata>
<Metadata name="gsdldoctype">indexed_doc</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Image">paulhed.jpg</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Source">paulhed.jpg</Metadata>
<Metadata name="ImageType">unknown</Metadata>
<Metadata name="ImageWidth">unknown</Metadata>
<Metadata name="ImageHeight">unknown</Metadata>
<Metadata name="ImageSize">unknown</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Identifier">D0</Metadata>
<Metadata name="gsdlassocfile">paulhed.jpg:image/unknown:</Metadata>
<Metadata name="assocfilepath">D0.dir</Metadata>
</Description>
<Content>Dummy text to sidestep display bug.</Content>
</Section>
</Archive>

I also have had no luck with the convert to HTML portion of the PDFPlug. No
images were created/ available for display.

Some ideas:
Would the fact that I am using SSH2 to the server affect the image
manipulation properties of some of the underlying software (i.e. gimp, gtk,
etc.)?

Does Xvfb need to be available?

Thank you for your insight!
