Thread: x11 installation trouble
03-21-2004, 08:17 PM #1jp_tixGuestx11 installation trouble
i'm trying to install the apple x11 from the file X11UserForMacOSX.mpkg.
i can run the installer, but when i try to choose the target disk i can't choose any!
i probably would want to install it on the Macintosh HD disk, but when i
click it it says something like "you can not install on this volume. could not find chosen message for index 17" (freely translated from norwegian version of panther).
i have used X11 on the machine before, but uninstalled it by removing the application itself (in the Applications folder) and removing the
/usr/x11R6 and /etc/X11 folders. perhaps that's why i'm having problems now...

the norwegian message is :
Du kan ikke installere denne programvaren på dette volumet.
Fant ikke angitt melding for 17-indeksen.
if i choose any other volumes (ipod, external fw disk) it says the
same thing except "index 16" instead of 17.

Well if you can isolate the file names that you need to delete I bet you can do it from the terminal. type grep >filemane< and when you see ones you want gone rm >filemane< maybe that will clear things up

Glad it worked, that first reinstall post -that is what I was trying to suggest.
