Thank you Dan, for your help.  That command worked wonderfully and I was
able to see what was wrong with my opensrf.xml file.  I fixed the error
(there was a return that was appearing) and I reran the .pl file that
previous error was gone, a few more popped up but I think I can track those
down and fix them.

Thank you,

I'm running 1.4 on Debian Etch, there's no problem with that choice.

This suggests that we need a bit more defensive programming to catch the
error that I can see below:

Thanks for running settings-tester.pl - that's very helpful!

Open up your opensrf.xml file in an XML-aware editor; the XML syntax in that
file is incorrect (maybe an open tag, or a comment that isn't terminated, or
something like that).

The following command might provide more help in where things went wrong in
the XML syntax:

xmllint --noout /openils/conf/opensrf.xml
