Hi all,

I am trying to produce a pdf/a-1b document by the recently released  
pdfx package:


and the log produced is:

This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.1415926-1.40.9 (Web2C 7.5.7)
  \write18 enabled.
  %&-line parsing enabled.

!  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

What does this mean? The pdfx package is included in TeXLive 2008,  
with all supporting files? Where is the colour profile and where  
should it be located, if found? It cannot be found in http://www.color.org/iccprofile.xalter 
  as suggested in  pdfx.pdf (from CTAN)

Unfortunately, I have not found this file nor found an answer by  
googling or in comp.text.tex; moreover, I simply do not know how to  
really use the pdfx.pdf (from CTAN) to solve my problem.
