A fix for an iTunes 6.0.1 command line install bug
Authored by: nvdingo on Dec 16, '05 09:06:32AM

i haven't installed anything from the command line, but how does this fix help?

If you are installing automatically using whatever mechanism, to have your updates done while you aren't around, and this hang occurs, then the update didn't take place.

Why, oh why, would you go through the hassle of drilling into the install package which downloaded already, and editing that line, when by the time you came in and found the problem, you could just double click the installer package.

I concede that i am obviously missing something here. Please tell me what it is.
Please explain the circumstances under which you would go through the effort of editing the command via the CLI. Just because i can't see it being necessary in my normal routine, doesn't mean it isn't necessary in yours, and i am truly curious.

Because when you're installing on 50 computers, it's not practical to go to each one of them and do the Double Click method.
