Twitter Bootstrap Carousel Not Sliding

I ran into an interesting issue. I’m pretty sure that the answer is very simple, but I just couldn’t figure it out so I thought I look for some help.

I was having the same issue but with bootstrap v2.0.3 (which has transition bundled in), ended up adding the slide class to the carousel div

<div id="myCarousel" class="carousel slide">
