This was a note on the howto where it says to copy over the pkg files from the CD and XCode Tools. I had to do it with cp -R since ditto only used a lot of CPU cycles and finally ended up writing everything to the same file or something. Not really useful. I can't toy with it any further as I decided to give my main system a reinstall since I gave booting from my iPod a shot after a (clean) reboot this afternoon and surprice surprice, it just booted fine off the iPod proving to me the firewire stuff is hardware wise completely OK. (The night before it caused me headaches and hard reboots again because it just 'hangs' and stalls the complete system, making the iPod unmountable, etc.) Then software update on the iPod showed all kinds of security updates and stuff that my main disk didn't get, even not when explicitly asking for updates, so I guess I managed to borken a Tiger install... I never succeeded in breaking my Jaguar install :/ So I'm waiting for the lengthy install phase to complete and ohw crap, now I remember what I forgot... I didn't backup my system dirs, so I have a fresh Gentoo setup to go through. Maybe I just only want the chroots to be sure I won't screw anything again. I'd like to have your Tiger script Kito ;) -- gentoo-osx@g.o mailing list
