Installation Issues

(1) make sure you are running 10.1.2

(2) Do you have the BSD tools installed?

(3) get a free account at and REPORT THOSE BUGS!!!

Seriously-- (3) is key. Apple really does look at the bugs that go through the system (I have reported close to 300 and everything have eventually transitioned to some resolved state-- critical bugs are dealt with surprisingly quickly).

I don't even think you need a free account -- you can go to the OS X feedback page and submit bugs there as well. -rob.

Am non geek.

What are BSD tools? I have the current Developer's Tools installed (for 10.1.2). Same thing?

Just curious. Why would they need to be installed to install iPhoto?

I'm not sure if they do need to be installed, but am just trying to gather evidence one way or another.

The 'bsd tools' are all of the command line stuff outside of what is already in the core... the Unix layer. Regardless of whether or not you are ever going to drop to the command line, I would suggest installing it simply because every developer has already installed it and, therefore, testing against systems that don't have it installed is likely to be sporadic, at best.
