Hi everyone. I have a fully functioning(for the most part) iAtkos v7 install on my asus m3a78-cm, phenom 9550 quad, and gts 250. Everything seems to work okay, dual screens, sound etc... but about 80% of the software I try to install, just hangs there on the installer screen with the spinning color wheel. Anybody else have this issue?

Kernel is voodoo 9.7

Chameleon 2

*UPDATE*

Okay... so it seems that I'm only having problems with certain installer packages. If I run a program that doesn't need to be installed, they run without a hitch. I tried doing a search on the forum, but no luck. Is there a kext or a fix that I need to install? Any help would be appreciated.

DMGs mount just fine. Its installer packages that are giving me trouble. Thanks for the response though :thumbsup_anim:

 

If they are pkg installers you could try installing them or extracting them with Pacifist.

 

Does sound like your system is not healthy though. try running fsck -fy in single user mode and repair permissions.

I used the fsck -fy command like you said, and it didn't find any problems with my disk. I am able to install things with Pacifist, so I guess I'll just have to live with it :wacko:
