Hello all!
I have a problem... :
Most of the .pkg installations hang themselves on "Preparing the AppName..."
Like so:

It just sits there and I have to force quit it.

At first I thought the apps I tried to install are not compatible, but now (as you can see from the image) I have tried to install iPhone Config. Util. directly from Apple... same thing...
(installing xCode and iPhone SDK worked normally though)

Why is this happening?
QUOTE Thanks

Have you tried booting off install disc selecting Disk Utility and doing a permission repair - that might sort it.
