Thanks for reporting this.

The commands script which unpacks the geogebra_html5.tar.gz tarball  
(if the GeogebraHTML5 version installed on your LON-CAPA server needs  
updating), has a dependency on the bc package.  Unfortunately,  bc was  
missing when you installed 2.11.0.RC3, so UPDATE did not unpack the  
tarball and install in it the expected location.

Apparently the bc package is included in a minimal CentOS 5 OS  
install, but not  (in some cases) in a CentOS 6 OS install.

Anyway, I have added that dependency to an updated  
LONCAPA-prerequisites (1-23.1) for CentOS 6.

You can install Geogebra HTML5 into /home/httpd/html/adm/geogebra/web  
as follows:

yum clean all
yum update LONCAPA-prerequisites

cd <path to loncapa-2.11.0.RC3>/loncom/html/adm/geogebra/

bash commands
