Hi Salleh,

I worked around it by editing the entities in the ePrints files to bring them in line with XML compliant entities. For our installation this was an easy enough change, and is just something for me to bear in mind when we upgrade in future. With any luck Red Hat will have fixed their package by then.

Many thanks for the suggestion,

James

James,

Try to downgrade libxml2 to the earlier version.  Maybe it will solve the problem.

Command: yum downgrade libxml2 libxml2-python

Salleh

Ah, many thanks for that, John.

I couldn't find anything relating to it and was worried it was either something I'd done or something that had been missed in the latest update. I'm glad it's a known issue and, hopefully, it will be resolved soon.

At least it can be worked around.

Regards,

James

James,
This is due to an update to LibXML - which now doesn't seem to pull in the system entities properly.
I ran into the same issue recently when someone applied some security patches to my RHEL6 server without telling me - and everything went very awry.

This call has been raised: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=863166

This thread: http://www.eprints.org/tech.php/17090.html also describes this issue.

Cheers,
John

Sorry, the email formatting has stripped the solution entity. For the space character the change made was entity &#160 in place of &nbsp.

Apologies for any confusion caused!

Hi,

After a number of unsuccessful attempts to install 3.3.10, I wanted to ask if the following was a known bug:

The file lib/lang/en/phrases/system.xml contains three occurrences of "&nbsp;", (two on line 396 and one on line 3006).

On a clean installation of CentOS 6.3 and 3.3.10, attempting to run bin/epadmin create resulted in multiple errors regarding parsing of the above file and created an archive with multiple broken links and "phrase not defined" errors.

Changing the three occurrences of "&nbsp;" to " " resulted in a clean build and no errors.

I don't currently have another test environment on which to confirm these errors, so would appreciate any input on whether this bug only exists as a result of the OS environment, or if it is a genuine bug in the 3.3.10 release. I do know that XML doesn't support "&nbsp;", so would assume this will be a problem for all.


Regards,


James Caldow
