I'm trying to upgrade to xcode 4.1, but I it's not working as I expect. I am a registered iOS developer, so I downloaded the (huge) installer. When I double click, it appears to launch, but then it stalls -- nothing happens. There's no installer window with buttons to click, etc. I'm sure there's a better way to do the installation from the terminal and see what's really happening. What do I try next?
Also, I'm wondering if anyone has made this work with OSX 10.6.8 yet, as there were some descriptions of the installer crashing on the dev forums. No answers there as of yesterday.
Update: tried so far-- Note: This is the correct version of xcode 4.1 for 10.6 (snow leopard) Not the one from the mac store, which is only for 10.7.
I removed the previous version of xcode (was 3.2.5) using
Looking at the syslog, I see a couple of errors that might be causing trouble: Firstly, when I shut down last night it shows
Macintosh DirectoryService: BUG in libdispatch: 10K549 - 1960 - 0x10004004. Secondly, this is showing up repeatedly:
Macintosh com.apple.launchd (com.apple.SystemStarter): Failed to count the number of files in "/System/Library/StartupItems": No such file or directory
When I tried the installer again, the syslog reported the above
no such file or directoryseveral times, then
Macintosh com.apple.launchd.peruser.501 (com.apple.coreservices.uiagent): Job appears to have crashed: Segmentation faultand a crash report.
Perhaps something is corrupted in my /System/Library files that is causing it to choke. Any other ideas on suggestions on how to repair this?
Update 2: I never managed to install xcode 4 on my macBook. The root of the problem seems to be that this was one of the earliest models of macBook to use the Intel processor. And XCode 4 doesn't seem to run well on this processor. Someone may have found a work-around by now, but I ended up with a newer computer: late 2009 MacBook Air running Snow Leopard. No problems with xcode 4 installation.
Crash Report stuff: (hopefully the useful bits...)
