A possible fix for a broken Software Update
Authored by: kevyang on Sep 08, '04 10:36:25AM

This happens for some if you have installed AND removed some versions of Xcode or Apple's Developer Tools. The removal script deletes /usr/bin/tar which is needed for Software Update.

You can get a copy of tar using fink, or you can extract tar from the install CD if you know how. Maybe the easiest way is to copy from another Mac.
