HI Daniel,

Instructions on that page are out of date -- they refer to DSpace 1.4 & as of v. 1.5, DSpace uses Maven to assemble the installation package.  


cd [dspace-source]/dspace/
mvn package


cd [dspace-source]/dspace/target/dspace-[version]-build.dir
ant fresh_install



Hope that helps.

Im trying to install Dspace 1.7.1 on my Mac (OSX 10.6) to use as a sandbox for our production install. Ive been using the guide at: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACE/Installing+DSpace+on+Mac+OS+X

Ive got all the dependencies in, but when I try to install I get a build error:

nb-siftond-01:~ daniel$ cd /usr/local/dsource
nb-siftond-01:dsource daniel$ ant fresh_install
Buildfile: build.xml does not exist!
Build failed

I can see the build file in:

nb-siftond-01:dsource daniel$ cd /usr/local/dsource/dspace/src/main/config
nb-siftond-01:config daniel$ ls -al
total 88
drwxr-xr-x@ 4 daniel  staff    136 10 Jun 11:52 .
drwxr-xr-x@ 4 daniel  staff    136 10 Jun 11:11 ..

-rw-r--r--@ 1 daniel  staff  36173 10 Jun 11:52 build.xml

But if I try and install from that directory, get a new build error:

nb-siftond-01:config daniel$ cd /usr/local/dsource/dspace/src/main/config
nb-siftond-01:config daniel$ ant fresh_install
Buildfile: /usr/local/dspace-1.7.1-release/dspace/src/main/config/build.xml

Total time: 0 seconds

Has anyone out there run into this before? Found a solution theyd like to share?
