Make sure that you have updated to the stable branch (C4). To do this you can execute the following command in the root of chamilo.

php script/phing.php -Daction=update -Dtarget-branch="C4" get-all

This will update all the repositories to the C4 branch, which is marked stable and used in several production environments.

Should be fixed with latest code. Make sure to retrieve the latest version of the core (root) and the metadata core application.

This is not fixed - I also downloaded the so-called latest version by following the link from the Chamilo website

Followed the installation instructions and bingo "Package dependencies failed to verify" just as described here.

If it helps I was installing into a directory called chamilolcms/ - is chamilo/ hard coded? When I refreshed the screen I was given the following trace:

#0 /var/www/html/chamilolcms/common/libraries/php/shared/storage/implementation/doctrine/database.class.php(1237): common\libraries\DoctrineDatabase->get_records_result('SELECT alias_ls...', 'common\librarie...', Object(common\libraries\DataClassRetrievesParameters))

Pity, I was looking forward to trying it out with a view to moving across from the other Chamilo - guess I wont now.
