    I am working on creating a source for adding ebooks to my ipod. The current problem I am having now is when I added the source and then tried to install it, i get download failed. So, basically I am wondering what i can do.

    The link to the source is

    In the package info, you need to have the size of the package, right down to the exact bit.

    for example, a package that's 787.1KB, you would put:

    HTML:
    <key>size</key>
    <string>806007</string>

    Well, you didn't post the repository, so I couldn't see that, but I just happened to know what the cause of your problem was. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

    it's gonna say "this could be an untrusted source" to every source that doesn't come with installer.app I do believe.

    ok, fair enough.... I guess I will just work on getting the books modified, and then post a link to the source to see if other people want my books

    ok, sorry about the bump. Now I am having a problem updating my program. I click for the update and after it downloads the file it says Main Script Execution Failed. or something like that. I am wondering what could be wrong
