Can't install Xcode from apple dev tools


7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm trying to install latest Xcode downloaded after the registration here: http://developer.apple.com/TOOLS/xcode/


It's xcode312_2621_developerdvd.dmg so version is 3.1.2


I tried installing an old version (I think it was something like 2.5) and it installed but I can't create executable binary. I need the latest.


I get the error at the end of the installation, quite everything seems to be installed the message is:

"Install Failed

The installer could not install some files in "/".

Contact the software manufacter for assistance."


So the installation end, I've got quite everything in /Developer directory, there's even the gcc compiler I need as gcc-4.2 binary name from terminal, but at all xcode is not installed. If I try to run a configure there's no gcc:

checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c

See `config.log' for more details.

At the end I launch /Developer/Library/uninstall-devtools to uninstall everything and I still not have any gcc compiler correctely installed.

Any help? Why am I getting this error?

Already tried that, even tried enabling journaling, repairing in -s mode with fsck (there was no error).

I definetely don't know which is the problem :(

It's something with these latest 3.x versions, because an older install correctely, don't know...

whereis gcc didn't reply anything. There was gcc-4.2 binary not gcc, I think the installation was just not complete and not working.

I tried everything, but mac log doesn't help so much.

So the only solution I found was a complete OSX re-install. I did and now it works with any installation error and I can even compile. :)
