Hello David,

That sounds like you made a mistakte in specifying all the needed parameters
for makecat.
Please post your inputs for makecat so we could look at them to find your

I´ve no clue how the deb package is setting up IC at all, though I have a
woody production Server too.
I used the tar ball to get IC running wihin a Confixx Account.

Good Luck
