Hi Mohammad,
That's a great idea. Since you recently ran into such issues, please feel free to add that in to the User Guide and I would be happy to review it.

Hello Mike,

         How about adding a "common errors and possible solutions"
section?? Many of the newbies like me faced a few hiccups while trying
to build and use Flume-NG for the first time. It would be pretty
useful for people like me. But it's just a suggestion from my side.
Pardon me if it sounds too childish. I am actually very new to the
open source world. Many thanks.
