10.4: Fix an iSync/Palm Conduit install issue
Authored by: prk on Jul 28, '05 11:54:13AM

Wouldn't a "Repair Permissions" fix this? I would think that since it's called "Repair Permissions" that it would fix a permissions problem.

Can someone give it a try since I don't have a Paul or use the conduits.

It would - perhaps - IF:

- The original installed permissions would allow read+write for the owner/group
AND
- The installer does create a Receipt AND
- The receipt is available in /Library/Receipts

Therefore only "Perhaps" (but I doubt itů)
PS.: I can't find a Palm Desktop receipt on my Mac(!) so the answer is NO

No, the folder has the wrong permissions when it is installed. So even if you use the apple installer (see the other reply here) and if all the other conditions were met it STILL wouldn't work; it does use the apple installer. I thought this might only be w/ the new 1.42b version. I didn't have another working install next to me to see what the perms were supposed to be so I just duped another folder in the same place, renamed, chowned it (really buggy install).

Had a similar problem three weeks ago. Here is a solution posted on my blog back then.
