Hi,

We're very close to getting this working. We've ironed out many issues
but there is still one left that is eluding us.

We're not able to distribute applications! Which of course is an
integral part of TED :)

We can distribute an empty application object just fine but if we try
and send anything over be that txt, MSI, AOT or AXT it fails.

Here's the portion of the log file that we think corresponds to the error:

2006.09.12 13:28:02 [TED:Gather
Audacity.DISTRIBUTIONS.ZFS.ZFS-LAB_1158064082291_TEMP] Error in building
the Distribution for Audacity.GOLD_APPS.ZFS.ZFS-LAB. null, please see
the distributor log file for more details.

2006.09.12 13:28:07 [TED:Event Processing] Gather
Audacity.DISTRIBUTIONS.ZFS.ZFS-LAB stopped with unknown error.

The distributer log sheds no light on the error (distEvent.ted):

<Event><Time>1158064082368</Time><Severity>Warn</Severity><Message>Distribution
Audacity.DISTRIBUTIONS.ZFS.ZFS-LAB not available to
distribute.</Message></Event>

and

<Event><Time>1158064087185</Time><Severity>Error</Severity><Message>Gather
Audacity.DISTRIBUTIONS.ZFS.ZFS-LAB stopped with unknown
error.</Message></Event>

Has anyone come across this error? What is the cause and how can we fix it?

Thanks
