Greenstone and Java Errors

apps

#1

I’m working on getting Greenstone (http://www.greenstone.org) running on a Dreamhost account, and I have a feeling I’m very close. The install appears to have run fine, but there’s a page with a java applet on it that’s generating an error:

Unfortunately, Java is one of my weak spots, and am hoping someone can interpret this error for me.

I don’t know grenstone, but the error is clear http://greenstone.mohnkern.com/cgi-bin/org/greenstone/gatherer/GathererApplet.class
can’t be open, I try it on my browser and in fact returns a 404, I suspect your url is incorrect or you need to add the correct URL or path.


Dark and difficult times lie ahead… Now is the time that we must choose between what is right, and what is easy. A.D

hi - did you eventually get greenstone installed on the server? If so, do you have any documentation… I’m hoping to present a collection online…

Thanks in advance!
