hi all

 

I've managed to work out that the problem with some users not being able to specifically INSTALL photoshop CS3 is due to a codec overrun in hdutils.

The workaround was to disable "verify checksums" in disutils preferences.

Once i did that, bang, CS3 installed, no issues.

I was having the 'codec overrun' problem also, and found this forum by Google search. Your suggestions didn't work for me, but i was able to continue searching w/info i took from your posts, and found this at MacWorld.com (http://www.macworld.com/2006/03/features/speedtoptips/index.php?pf=1) searching for 'disable verify checksums'. i had no idea what a disutils was or where to find its preferences. this worked for me:

 

 

Skip disk image verification

When you mount a disk image, OS X first verifies the disk’s checksum to make sure that nobody has tampered with the data on the disk image. Theoretically, that step is important. But when you’re dealing with disk images from trusted sources (which is most of the time, I hope), it’s redundant. (In five years of OS X usage, I have yet to have a checksum test fail.) Thankfully, you can easily disable this feature. If you downloaded TinkerTool earlier, just look in the Applications section and choose the Skip Checksum Verification When Opening DMG Files option. If you don’t have TinkerTool, open Terminal and type defaults write com.apple.frameworks.diskimages skip-verify true. From now on, you won’t see the checksum-verification progress box. To reenable it, repeat the above command but change true to false .
