Forum OpenACS Development: OpenACS Repository access problem...

When trying to update the Mail Services Lite package, it fails and in the log I get this:

. The following error was returned:

Is it my problem or it's OpenACS Repo?

it seems as if the temp directory is not correctly defined on your system. Most likely
   ns_config ns/parameters tmpdir
returns empty in your installation.

If this parameter is not set in the config file of the server, the tmp directory is taken from the environment variable TMPDIR. If this is not set, it is taken from the C macro P_tmpdir.
