You don't actually read error messages, do you ;-) ?

Your image magick install seems to be far from perfect. How this happened, I 
do not know. Anyway the convert calls from the indexer ALL fail. There are 
plenty of warnings that this failed in the output of the indexer. The indexer 
does not stop, however, because if you have one image whose convert call 
fails you do not want a whole indexing run to die. However, I note that there 
should be a more comprehensible summary of the type:

1000 feature extraction attempts
0 successful
100% failure 

or something like that.

So, you do not have a single byte in the indexing files. Makes it difficult to 
find images based on the index.

I did not look at that. But usually the GIFT-server starts up properly. It 
starts to complain the moment you try to use a collection that is badly 
configured. Yours is, as it has not a single byte of useful indexing data.

The way to fix this is to make sure that convert works. This is not a GIFT 
problem, this is a problem of Linux administration.

Thanks for your feedback, and please do not hesitate to ask more questions.
