Is there any way to install the entire Xcode and iOS SDK developer suite on an external hard drive, and run it? When I open the .mpkg, I get " Xcode and iOS SDK can't be installed on this disk. You can only install this software on the disk that is running Mac OS X"

Is there a workaround for this? I looked through the package contents, and there's no "RequiresOSXHardDisk" key or anything I can find.

Which version of Xcode are you talking about here? I'm pretty sure the recent versions of Xcode are an app that includes an installer for the extra bits. –  Steven Fisher Jun 4 '12 at 1:19
    
@StevenFisher I'm trying to to 3.2.6, since I have Snow Leopard and no access to the Mac App Store on this machine. –  tkbx Jun 4 '12 at 11:49
