iled: could not find any magic files!

I have confimed that my paths are correct by renaming magic.mgc in installdir and that error changes to path or file not found. It seems to be telling me that the installed magic.mgc is not valid. All help appreciated.

Had to replace the double slashes in the yaml with single slashes. Error message could have been more helpful. Also the install left the paths as the default even though I chose a diferent location. This required edits to the yaml manually post install even though any basic install script supports update of those.
