Ship Respray Download Problem

Post by F-P » Sat Aug 22, 2015 11:11 am

Hi all

New boy here, I've been trying to download the Addons for Beginners, it downloads most of the packages but fails on Ship Respray. I've updated the list several times, tried manually downloading and putting it in the folder, but get pretty much the same error.

11:52:45.080 [plist.parse.failed]: Failed to parse /Users/neilpaice/Library/Caches/org.aegidian.oolite/Oolite-download.oxz/manifest.plist as a property list.
Unexpected character { at line 1
11:52:45.080 [oxz.manager.error]: Downloaded OXZ does not contain a manifest.plist, has been left in /Users/neilpaice/Library/Caches/org.aegidian.oolite/Oolite-download.oxz

I'm running 1.82 on a Yosemite Mac

Cheers for any help.

G'day, and welcome aboard, F-P! 8)

It looks like phkb accidentally omitted a semi-colon on line 16 of the manifest.plist when he updated the OXZ a few days ago. I'll post a note about it in his Ship Respray thread.

Welcome F-P!

Mac is more strict in the usage of semicolons than other systems, there was no problem at me under Linux. Please try again now.
