  • Hi, I am having the same problem, on dedicated hardware (amd64). I see the "p7zip-9.20.1-amd64.pbi" on the base url in your post. Is there some way to manually pre-install that? will that workaround the issue?

    (on a side note, I verified that the sha256 sum matched, but I am really grasping at straws)

    The only other thing that catches my eye is the version mismatch on the p7zip between the pbi and the tbz version numbers.

  • I think it may be a malformed XML tag ?

    "/pkg_mgr_install.php: XML error: XML_ERR_NAME_REQUIRED at line 1903 in /conf/config.xml"

    if I run the config.xml through any XML validation online, it does not like the <0> , says it must be alpha-numerical – e.g. <n0>this appears to only be happening on the AMD64 release, I installed the I386(ESXi) release as a test case, and its does not have these problems.  Doesnt really help as I need/want to use more than 4gb of RAM</n0>



  • so the same config.xml section on I386 look completely different from the AMD64 version – is there perhaps something borked with the AMD64 repo?
