Katherine,

Thanks for the reply ... I'll try your suggestions this evening -- not currently close to that machine.

This collection is being built from the collector so that may be the problem.

I'll try the manual process tonight. This server is not on a network currently and so loading Java seemed a disproportionate amount of work since I knew I could process these files and didn't need the GLI. I'll arrange to download the most recent gsdl when I can -- probably this weekend.

When I say only one document I mean that only document is showing in the collection, and all of the index creation and text processing seems to have only seen the last document listed/processed by the HTMLPlug module.

The config file looks much like this:
...
indexes document:text document:Title document:Source document:Subject document:Author document:Period
defaultindex document:text

plugin ZIPPlug
plugin GAPlug
plugin TEXTPlug
plugin HTMLPlug -metadata_fields Subject,Title,Author,Period
plugin EMAILPlug
plugin PDFPlug
plugin RTFPlug
plugin WordPlug
plugin PSPlug
plugin ArcPlug
plugin RecPlug


classify AZList -metadata Title
classify AZList -metadata Source
classify AZCompactList -metadata Subject -mingroup 1
classify AZCompactList -metadata Author -mingroup 1 -buttonname "Contributors"
classify AZCompactList -metadata Period -mingroup 1
...

and then the various format statements and then
...
collectionmeta collectionname "Shaping San Francisco Beta"
collectionmeta iconcollection "/gsdl/images/top_banner-2.gif"
collectionmeta collectionextra " Linux Beta test of the Shaping San Francisco project.

This collection contains _numdocs_ documents, a total of _numbytes_ of indexed text and metadata.

Click here to view the build summary for this collection. "
collectionmeta .document:text "text"
collectionmeta .document:Title "titles"
collectionmeta .document:Source "filenames"
collectionmeta .document:Subject "subjects"
collectionmeta .document:Author "authors"
collectionmeta .document:Period "period"

Apologies for not having included this in my earlier post.

Greg W.

hi greg

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.

regards,
katherine

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.
