1.2b3 installer hangs

Postby daryl » Fri Sep 18, 2009 12:13 pm

I've just tried to install Growl 1.2b3 on my MacBook Pro, and the installer has hung at "Preparing Growl...". It stayed at that for about 20 minutes, so I ran "killall Installer" from the command line. I saved a copy of the installer log, although it doesn't say much. I just tried to install it again and the same thing happened...

Please take a sample of Installer while it is hung. You can do this by selecting the hung Installer process in the Activity Monitor and clicking “Sample Process” in the toolbar.

Hmm. I had already deleted the .dmg file, so I redownloaded it. This time it all worked fine. Maybe it didn't download properly, or something.

I've had a problem where all the installations I try and do through the graphical installer hang at that IFPKInstallElement line.

I don't know what might be wrong (and I haven't taken the time to try to reinstall Snow Leopard).

I can complete installs that hang up there from the command line "installer" tool just fine.

Thanks for the tip easco!

I used this command after having mounted the dmg:

Code: Select all

sudo installer -pkg /Volumes/Growl-1.2/Growl.pkg -target LocalSystem

Well, this works but I'm not sure this is the desired behavior.

The installer hang was due to the iPhone Simulator running at the same time...

Perhaps you could post a comment contradicting the bug author's assertion that it's package-dependent. We don't touch anything iPhone-related—the Growl Installer package installs the prefpane to /Library/PreferencePanes, and doesn't install anything else.
