    11FLI, the Fedora Librarian Interface: 
    2  
     2____________________________________ 
    33 
    44A Purpose of FLI: 
     
    77 
    88B Some limitations and workarounds 
    9 - fli.sh launches a modified gli.sh. But fli.bat launches gli.bat which has yet to be edited to work for both gs3 and gs2. In other words, at present the Windows fli.bat should be used when working with Greenstone 2, and fli4gs3.bat when working with Greenstone 3. 
    10 - You need the Greenstone server to be running on the same machine as where your Fedora machine is running. This may not be a requirement in the future. 
    11 - fli.sh will at present put documents into the Fedora repository if Greenstone is running locally to FLI (as opposed to a remote Greenstone server). It's the intention to fix this discrepancy soon. But if you want an immediate solution, what you need to do is: 
     9- You need the Greenstone server to be running on the same machine as where your Fedora machine is running. This may or may not remain a requirement in the future. 
     10- FLI will put documents into the Fedora repository (a process called "ingesting into Fedora"). If you happen to encounter some connection failure problems please try the following and also inform us of the context of your problem. To overcome such a problem, what you need to do is: 
    1211 * Stop the fedora server 
    13  * Go to $FEDORA_HOME/tomcat/conf/Catalina/<your-fedora-host-name or localhost>/ 
    14 (where $FEDORA_HOME is your Fedora installation folder) 
    15 Finding out what the last folder should be is tricky, but if you look inside $FEDORA_HOME/tomcat/conf/Catalina/, there should already be a folder with the required fedora hostname.  
     12 * Go to FEDORA_HOME/tomcat/conf/Catalina/localhost/ 
     13(where FEDORA_HOME is your Fedora installation folder) 
    1614 * Create a file containing this XML: 
    1715<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?> 
    18 <Context docBase="/full/path/to/parent/folder/of/greenstone/collectdir" path="/gsdl"></Context> 
    19 Where this would be $GSDLHOME/web/sites/localsite for Greenstone 3, and just plain $GSDLHOME for Greenstone 2. (Note that in both cases, it has to be the full path to the parent directory of the "collect" directory.) 
     16<Context docBase="/full/path/to/parent/folder/of/your/greenstone/collectdir" path="/gsdl"></Context> 
     17Where this full path would be your  
     18- GSDLHOME/web/sites/localsite for Greenstone 3, and  
     19- just plain GSDLHOME for Greenstone 2.  
     20Note that in both cases, it has to be the full path to the parent directory of the "collect" directory. 
    2021 * restart the fedora server 
    2122 * Now you can run FLI as described below.
