Install iLife 04 on Mac OS X Server
Authored by: rcfa on Jan 25, '04 03:51:57AM
Since Apple chose to sabotage the ability to install iLife '04 on a Mac OS X Server system, here's how to bypass that restriction:

a) insert the install DVD
b) start DiskUtility
c) create a new disk image from the install DVD, be sure to make a read/write disk image, not a read-only or compressed image.
d) eject the DVD
e) mount the disk image
f) open up a Terminal window
cd /Volumes/Install\ DVD

find . -name InstallationCheck -print -exec rm -rf {} \;

i) now you can install by clicking the Install package on the disk image.
j) eject the disk image to unmount
h) delete the disk image to reclaim the disk space

Be sure you have the required disk space: in addition to the several GB the installation requires, you will need temporarily another 4-5 GB for the disk image.

Install iLife 04 on Mac OS X Server
Authored by: lanza on Jan 29, '04 01:54:44PM

I *really* want to figure out why Apple disabled iLive in OS X Server and stop it. I'm running OS X Server as my Internet Server (web, mail, ftp) *and* my "Digital Hub." I serve iPhoto and iTunes throughout my house, and no other computer stores iTunes. This works well for me.

Doesn't Apple get it??? Don't they want people to serve iTunes and iPhoto from one home server?

If this is an indication of how Apple thinks about this model, I'm going to think more about Windoze Media Center...
