    I made myself a repository and added a slider pack that i made. Everything works fine, but wheni download it, it says "Error: Package Download Failed!".

    Is it how i packed my Zip file?I used win-rar and made it a zip. The zip is a folder with 5 images inside of it. Any ideas?

    1, check the file size is correct
    2, re-zip it on a Mac or Linux

    It should work then.

    44.9kb is 44090 right? and i only have a windows. my linux box has been dismantled. i'll try to set it up again. do i have to have the right hash? how do i get the md5?

    can it be a .zip or does it have to be like another format?

    I archived them on my ubuntu 7.10 box and it still fails half war through checking the download. What should the structure of my archive look like?

    someone look over my xml file to see if it has any errors:

    http://homeruntilly.zidev.com/repo/repo1.xml

    there has to be something wrong! that's the only file in my repository besides the ZIPs... do i need anything else?

    are you using the right file size?
    right click on the zip file, select properties. On the general tab look at SIZE not size on disk. Take the number in brackets without any punctuation as the size.

    You can get by without the hash for now, google how to get the md5hash in windows.

    The file size is exact. I even put the right hash. I'm missing something server side like an XML or plist. All I hve are zips and repo.XML

    the only thing i think that could be wrong is the date, the tags are like this:

    <key>date</key>
    <string>1196892180</string>

    i have no clue what to put in place of the 1196892180...

    Date is the linux timestamp, and its not checked as far as I know in any way. Ignore it.
    Can you send me a direct link to the ZIP and ill have a look for you...
