other effects?
Authored by: GaelicWizard on Nov 25, '03 03:15:09PM

This actually doesn't effect installers with a .pkg extention, only the 3rd party ones.

If you are installing as an Admin user, then there is no place on the system that you should write to that you cannot write to. The only place that this disables writing to is /System and some unix directories (like /usr). There is no reason for an installer to *EVER* install to these places. (if you're thinking /usr/local, then you can make the dir and 'chown :admin /usr/local' to make it happy) Admin users have write permissions to /Library which is the only place that an installer should put "system" files. :-)
