Sorry about that - I'm usually much better - it's version 5.5

The error messages - I've been installing and uninstalling several
packages.  This is just one of them -

Jul 22, 2008 9:38:33 AM org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext
SEVERE: Error starting static Resources
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Document
base /opt/dspace/webapps/jspui does
 not exist or is not a readable directory

Work directory?  Wow, I finally found the symbolic link and was able to
find the elements and delete them.  Wow - this is one difficult system
to understand!

blank page - no error, no nothing

from the missing apps so I can track down my other problem!
