We started off with a straight GN install about a year ago which worked
well enough. But getting various OpenGeo components (eg GeoExplorer) to
integrate and play nicely in their un-bundled form has been an exercise
We're coming back the other way now: starting with a clean install of
OpenGeo Suite (CE) on Debian, we get all the suite components installed
at /usr/share and Suite is looking, well, sweet!
Now, time to install GeoNetwork...ummm right.
Looking into the latest 2.4.0 admin guide we get nothing in the way of
concession to existing PostGIS and GeoServer installs.
Am I missing some documentation treasure trove or can anyone offer a
basic clue train?
Thanks very much in advance...

The GeoNetwork installation package is really a suite in itself. It includes
with the core GeoNetwork program, a GeoServer instance, a database, and
Jetty. Much of this you do not need if you have the Open Geo suite already.
In fact it would likely cause conflicts. You would likely have more luck if
you downloaded the GeoNetwork war file and installed that into your Tomcat
engine and configured it to work with your existing GeoServer and PostGIS
installations. The war for GN 2.6.4 is available at
I believe the 2.4 version is available from the same Sourceforge site if you
prefer that version.
