Hi Ken,

     I just confirmed that I can autobuild the image, and updated scripts to use the latest VMs etc.  Looking at your SqueakDebug.log it looks like you have a corrupted Alien.eem-24 package in your package cache.  I recommend deleting that and trying again.

Hello.  Hello?

Is this thing on?

Perhaps no one reads vm-beginners?

Thanks for any help,
