IMac :: Unable To Install Snow Leopard / Installer Can't Extract Files From The Package

Sep 20, 2009

At first, I tried to upgrade and the upgrade failed to the point of rendering the system useless. I then decided to reformat the drive using disk utility and try a clean install. I then got this error and I'm stuck and have no clue what to do now: "The installer can't extract files from the package for BaseSystem. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance." I have never encountered anything like this before.

OS X V10.4 :: Applications In Installer Package Broken / Won't Download

Jun 22, 2012

Some of my applications that came with OS X 10.4.11 have become damaged. I have tried two ways of replacing them from the 10.4.11 Combo installer package downloaded from Apple.I removed the faulty ones from my Applications folder and then ran the installer. None of the applications were downloaded into my Applications folder.I used Pacifist to look into the installer package. In the Applications folder within the package, all (or most) of the applications had the generic icon that shows that an application is broken or incomplete, and when I extracted two of them by means of Pacifist, they retained that icon and did not work.And, more importantly, how I can obtain working versions of iCal and Address Book?

Software :: Unable To Boot From Internal HD Afetr 10.6 Installer Stops?

Sep 22, 2009

I was installing 10.6 on my MBP running 10.5.8. I had launched the installer and after about 20 mins of the installation, my MBP rebooted launching the CD installer window. I went ahead and started the install and selected my internal HD. It starts the install and then gave me an error "Can't install on this HD." I went ahead and quit the installer and tried to start up from the internal HD. It starts up with the apple logo and progress circle but then just shuts back down again. I'm able to boot back up using the 10.6 installer CD, then using Terminal, navigate to see all my user files.

I guess my question is what's the best way to grab all my files off the internal hd so I can do a clean install of 10.6? I tried setting my MBP as a Firewire disk to grab the files but when connecting it to another mac, no disk drive is recognized. I thought about just launching Terminal and copying the files onto an external drive. Just wondering if that's the best route? Is there still a way to boot up from my internal HD to move my user files?

So on my boot drive, there is no option to uncheck the Ignore ownership on this volume because, well, it's not there. I'm running the latest version of OS X. How do I fix this? I've searched around and found similar threads dating back to the Tiger days but nothing that fixed anything for me.

Software :: Cannot Open ITunes Or Finder - No Written Permissions

May 1, 2010

When ever I click on the itunes or finder icons, I get this error message: "The itunes Library .itl file is locked, on a locked disk, or you do not have written permission for this file". I read somewhere that for itunes it may have gotten stuck as a read only file and you can fix this by going to my documents --> music --> itunes --> properties --> unselect "read only". But when I click on "my documents" it tells me that I have to open it with "finder", and "finder" gives me the same error message as itunes.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Unable To Get Permissions On It?

Apr 8, 2012

I used a trick, long since lost I'm afraid, to tell the Finder to display the UNIX path name of the current directory at the top of the Finder window.For example, a finder window with my Documents folder selected(i.e. "in" the Documents folder) normally shows the special Documents folder icon and the name "Documents".What the trick would have it show instead is:


I've started over with a clean install of Lion (jury still out on the wisdom of this)so even if the setting would still work, I don't know how to make it. how to do this in Lion?

OS X Mountain Lion :: Can't Open / Delete File With Unknown Permissions

Jun 4, 2014

I was using Logic Pro X and the program crashed before I could save my project. There is now a file called "untitled" that appears to be a Logic Project file, however I cannot delete, open, rename, and move it anywhere.  When I try to click and drag the file icon, it doesn't allow me to move it anywhere.    
When right-click on the file, it pops up the window, but there are only a few options available.  I went to "get info" and saw that the file permissions are "unknown".  I've tried repairing disk permissions in the disk utility, however the file is still unaccessible.It's not a large file (only 578K), but it would still like to remove it.

MacBook Pro :: Set Permissions On 2nd HDD - Unable To Access

Jul 3, 2010

I changed the permissions on my 2nd HDD in my optibay, and now I cannot access the drive. A little lock is displayed with the icon, and when i try to access it is says "you do not have permission to see its contents."

I changed the permissions in the first place because I formatted my primary SSD drive and was having trouble gaining access to some folders on the secondary drive. I got tired of setting "read and write" for each and individual folder, and so I clicked on the small drop-down menu with the gear that allowed me to set it for all the folder within that drive. I set "read and write", and after about an hour it finished processing that command. However, after it finished, the permissions read "custom" instead and I was denied access to everything on the drive.

OS X :: Unable To Repair Disk Permissions?

When I open Disk Utility and select one of the 2 volumes in the left pane, the buttons "Verify disk permissions" and "Repair disk permissions" remain greyed out. Only the "Repair disk" and "Verify disk" buttons are enabled. This is not the startup Volume. For this volume all 4 buttons are enabled.

How can I repair the disk permissions on the volume?

Mac OS X Lion Server :: Unable To Edit Permissions

Feb 1, 2012

I'm trying to edit permissions on a folder via the Server App, and having some trouble. I can access all of the other folders on the shared volume and edit them just fine, but on one folder the OK button is always grayed out. Here's what I'm doing: In Server App, selecting the server under StorageChoosing the drive I want to editSelecting the folder I wantUnder the gear, choosing Edit Permissions.It shows me the list of users just fine and I can see that there's a problem, but no matter what changes I make it won't let me click OK. It also won't let me click + to add a new user.This works fine on all of the other folders on this same drive. Should I just reset all of the ACLs for that folder in the Terminal and try again?

OS X :: Unable To Set Permissions For Music Files / Deleted Old Preferences?

Jul 2, 2009

After a lot of fruitless time-consuming crap including reinstalling my OS and deleting all my preferences, they created a new useraccount and it didn't have the problem. So they said I should just make a new account and migrate everything over there and use that.

Well, I've spent the last 8 hours trying to put everything to rights after everything they did to my computer. And I got most things taken care of. However, when in iTunes (which I had to reload my entire library into), I find that I can't edit information on any of the songs. I looked into file info and even though I told it to "apply to enclosed items" when I gave the new account read/write permission and transferred ownership.... it didn't do it. The files within the folders are still set as being owned by the old account, which, I assume, is why I can't edit them.

There has to be a way to fix this that doesn't involve going through 14,000 songs and individually changing their permissions settings, but I can't find it.

Desktops :: Unable To Launch Cs3 / Missing Licensing Permissions Or Files

Jun 9, 2010

I'm on a G4 running 10.4.11. Recent strange behavior include mouseovers invoking clicks; cycling windows (programs and finder.) These annoyances seemed to have fixed themselves after restart. Now, many (not all) of my preferences have been changed requiring manual reset: auto login on start-up; internet connection. But the most problematic is that my CS3 programs won't launch due to one reason or another (missing licensing permissions or files; different messages with each program.)

I launched Disk Utility (using both Safe Boot and the Install CD) but Repair Permissions failed with a No Valid Package message
