Hi Neville,

Sorry for the delayed response . . . here I've attached three files of
output from my GIFT installation so that we can try to tell the
difference between those errors that matter and those that don't.  I
made some annotations so that hopefully they're easier to read (for
example, I deleted parts where it lists all 20 or so of my image
collections).  Parts I've changed are marked with comments in *stars*.

'gift-index.txt'  contains the tail end of the output from indexing a
collection.  In particular, you will notice that the "ERROR in
generating inverted file" happens for me too.

'gift-server-start.txt'  contains the output dumped immediately after
starting the server.  Most of this seems very similar to the output
you have, although there are some slight differences in the
plugin-checking section (the part following "Configuring the
CAccessorFactoryContainer:").  I would guess these are due to
platform/configuration differences, but I don't really know much about

'gift-query.txt'  shows the output when I ran a few queries through:
getting a random set of images and refining the results a few times.
This is the part that looks most different, but could be due to
differences in our GIFT clients.  At this stage I started getting
tired, so I didn't really look too thoroughly there.

Let me know if this helps, or at least helps to generate new
questions.  By the way, the client I use is a modified version of the
one at ''  The online demo seems to be down now, but
it looks like the source is still available.  I had to learn a little
php to get it working, and I think I had to install PEAR too, but I
did find it relatively easy to understand.


p.s.  Maybe if some of the experts are listening they could look
through these files and help further pare them down to something
useful for troubleshooting?
