27<h2>The Greenstone software</h2>
28
29<p>
30This page explains how to download and install the
31<a href="_httppagex_(gsdl)">Greenstone Digital Library software</a>.
32<p>
33Greenstone is open-source software.
34It is distributed under the terms of the
35<a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html">GNU General Public License</a>.
36Documentation is available in the form of
37<i><a href="_gsdl:httpgsdlmanual_">The Greenstone Digital Library Software manual</a></i>.

39<h4>Downloading Greenstone</h4>
40<p>
41<a
42href="http://www.nzdl.org/download/greenstone/gsdl-2.13.tar.gz"><i>gsdl-2.13.tar.gz</i></a>
43<i>(4.6 Mb)</i> contains the latest distribution of Greenstone.
44<p>

47<h4>Installing Greenstone</h4>
48
49<p> To install on unix systems:
50
51<ul>
52<li>Download the
53<a href="http://www.nzdl.org/download/greenstone/gsdl-2.13.tar.gz"><i>gsdl-2.13</i></a>
54distribution <i>(4.6 Mb)</i>.
55<li>Extract the gzipped tar archive <i>(tar xvzf gsdl-2.13.tar.gz)</i>.
56<li>In the resulting gsdl directory type <i>./configure</i>.
57When the configure script has finished running type <i>make</i>,
58then <i>make install</i>.
59<li><i>make install</i> copies the
60compiled executable file into the gsdl/cgi-bin directory by default. To run
61the library as a cgi script move the executable and the gsdlsite.cfg
62configuration file to your systems cgi-bin directory.
63<li>The gsdlsite.cfg
64configuration file must be edited to suit your site. The gsdlhome entry
65will need to be set to point to your gsdl directory. Other fields that may
66need changing are httpprefix (the web path to the gsdl directory) and
67httpimg (the path to gsdl/images).
68<li>To build the demonstration
69collection that comes with the distribution run the builddemo.sh script
70from within the gsdl directory.
71<li>For more information on using the
72Greenstone software, download <i><a
73href="http://www.nzdl.org/download/greenstone/publications/gsdl_manual.pdf">The Greenstone
74Digital Library Software</a></i> manual. </ul>
75
76<p> The current distribution of the Greenstone software was developed primarily for use on unix systems.
77The software does run under Windows/DOS however and windows specific distributions (including pre-compiled
78binaries) will soon be made available.
79
80<h4>Greenstone Collections</h4>
81Several of the smaller collections on this website are available for
82download. Once the main Greenstone distribution is installed simply
83download the required collection and extract the gzipped tar file to your
84gsdl/collect directory. You then need to import and build your new
85collection. See <i><a
86href="http://www.nzdl.org/download/greenstone/publications/gsdl_manual.pdf">The Greenstone
87Digital Library Software</a></i> manual for details on importing and
88building collections. The Greenstone software will automatically notice
89your new collection and include it in the home page once it has been built
90successfully.
