The file you attached is completely empty / invalid... You are creating this on PC-BSD 9.0-RC2?

BTW, I've just fixed a bug with pbi_create putting files in the wrong location. If you update pbi-manager from SVN you can test:

% svn co svn://svn.pcbsd.org/pcbsd/current/src-sh/pbi-manager pbi-manager
% cd pbi-manager
% su
# make install

After doing that, I was able to run

# pbi_create -a "Oskar" -n "TestProgram" -r "0.0.1" -w "http://example.com" <dir>

And it created:

/root/testprogram-0.0.1-amd64.pbi

The PBI installs just fine here.

@Kmoore

This conversation you and Oskar are having is really interesting to me. I realize that PBIs are relatively new formats and what this tells me is that PBIs may leapfrog over Freebsd ports in the future and software may directly be packaged for PCBSD. This means that the port request threads may one day be obsolete because the average users will have EasyPBI to work with and the PBI devs will be able to concentrate on making PBIs out of other programs that aren't even in the ports.

I find this exciting.
