Since EPrints 2.2 you may use either XML::DOM or XML::GDOME. XML::GDOME is recommended as it's faster and uses much less RAM, but it does require you to install a whole lot of extra libraries and perl modules. If you are running a pilot or demonstration service then XML::DOM is fine, and you can always switch over later by installing the required tools and setting the GDOME flag in perl_lib/EPrints/SystemSettings.pm

Addional Libraries Required for GDOME support

libxml2
libxml2-devel

either get the tarball from: ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/libxml2/

or the RPMs (but we have had problems with complex RPM dependencies):


http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libxml2
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=libxml2-devel

The GDOME Library

Obtain this from


http://gdome2.cs.unibo.it/#downloads

You may either use the RPMs (gdome2 and gdome2-devel) or the tarball.

Additional Perl Modules Required for GDOME support

XML-LibXML-Common
XML-NamespaceSupport
XML-GDOME

All of which are in http://www.cpan.org/modules/by-module/XML/
