try adding a blank line at the end of the xml files.
Thanks, yuvalt -- you're a genius!
thanks in advice for your help.
Mwpei, Did you ever get your repository built for this?
any news on your repository? need any more help?
First I created my site where my repository will be held.
then I created the following structure (not sure if this is correct)
The sturcture of my zip files are exactly how they are structured in the apps folder:
---- Boxee Skin NG
Here is what the descriptor.xml file looks like:
you can see the contents of the followingCode:<app> <id>boxeevpn</id> <name>BoxeeVPN</name> <version>2.0</version> <description>Boxee VPN Controller for Openvpn</description> <thumb>http://www34.websamba.com/boxeeCTV/apps/boxeevpn/boxeevpn.png</thumb> <repository>http://www34.websamba.com/boxeeCTV</repository> <media>video</media> <copyright>GPL</copyright> <email>firstname.lastname@example.org</email> <type>skin</type> <startWindow>14000</startWindow> <platform>all</platform> <minversion>0.9.9</minversion> </app>
I can add the repository in app box but when I try to download the boxeeVPN plugin I get a "Could not add application" error.
Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong?

I have made several repositories to install software that I have downloaded and made my own packages to my own computers
I followed this and it worked great
I was assuming that all you needed to do to setup a repository was to setup the correct files and directories on a site that is accessible to others, but from the sounds of this link it seems like you need to have the ability to install some repository generator
The problem I have is I don't have access to a web server that I can install stuff on, so I guess my question is: can i setup my repository in some other way?Code:Install the tools to be able to create a repository index sudo aptitude install dpkg-dev
