Worked fine for me - just launch PackageInstaller (I navigated to the apps dir and launched it by double-clicking) and then use the open dialog to launch the subversion package. Then you just click on the Subversion banner that shows in the middle of the screeen.

You're right, that worked. So maybe this isn't a bug, or maybe the bug is that PackageInstaller doesn't work correctly from the commandline?

What we can definitely agree on is that it should just work by double clicking the package :-)

comment:4 by umccullough, 12 years ago

BTW, I was able to make it work from the commandline by qualifying the path to the package as such:

$ PackageInstaller ./Subversion-1.1.3.pkg

Same thing happens to me on real hardware with hrev24609.

Interesting. I will look into this issue as soon as possible, since it's more or less my responsibility ;-) If, of course, there are no objections.

This seems to be fixed with recent builds, after hrev24752 or so. Can anyone else confirm?

comment:8 by scottmc, 12 years ago

I checked this again tonight with some old package files and just double clicking the pkg file PackageInstaller opened them up as expected. Seems this one can be closed.

I also was not able to reproduce the bug in the recent builds. Nice to see it's the same for someone else too. Thanks.
