11-16-2004, 12:37 AM #1dodjy001Guesttrouble updating
we are having rouble updating programs on my gf's g4 imac.
i download all the updates from the apple web site and then update our computers,
now when i decompress the .dmg the .mpkg show as a folder and therefore unable to update the system.
i have no idea what to do, should i just start from scratch with 10.3??
any help would be appreciated

Have you tried updating using Software Update?
System Preferences/Software Update
If that doesn't work, this is where I would start…
If you have repaired permissions and ran the maintenance scripts, and still have the problem(s), then try updating using the combined update. After the update, repair permissions.

Double-click on the .pkg file. It should automatically run the Installer and proceed with the installation. If it doesn't then that mean either you have a bad download or the file has lost its association with the Installer.
If this is the case simply select the .pkg file and press COMMAND-I to open the Get Info window. In the Open With section select Installer from the dropdown menu, then close the Get Info window. The .pkg file should now work properly.
