I tested the glossary package and with the following example a *.glo  
file with the right entry was created but no *.ist file as I  
understood in the manual for glossary (ftp://tug.ctan.org/pub/tex- 

Any hints on how could I proceed to get the glossary?

Here the example:
\glossary{name={singular matrix},
           description={A matrix with zero determinant}}
