After many attempts, the only way I could install these applications has been through a manual copy from the command line: sudo hdiutil attach ./SourceTree_2.0.5.2.dmg sudo cp -r /Volumes/SourceTree/SourceTree.app /Applications/

Get an 8+ GB thumb drive. Plug it in to your Mac, format it as HFS Journaled and name it "Untitled". Launch /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app, su as root, then paste the following command into Terminal: /Applications/Install\ OS\ X\ Yosemite.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Untitled --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ ...

For the sake of completeness, rather than add endless updates to the question, I have now achieved an reinstall from scratch. Once I discovered there was a second install on the other hard drive, I reconfigured the arrangement of the drives so that the Mac booted from the other. This took a few trial-and-error permutations with the disk cabling, and the ...

Installation via the source isn't so bad, but there is very little documentation on how to install for your specific type of Emacs install on OS X. While in the makeconfig file there are several presets for some types of installations on Mac (you just have to uncomment them), there aren't any written for an Emacs installation via Homebrew which tends to be ...

Took me a few tries to get this working (the installer managed to do some really strange stuff on my first few attempts). But this seems to work reliably. I created a temporary folder with just the application I wanted to package (leaving the app sitting elsewhere seemed to result in the aforementioned strange behaviour), then package it from there. So I ...

As of right now there is no gexiv2 brew formula but I've created and submitted one which will hopefully get accepted soon. You can follow here: https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew/pull/37944 Beyond that there are various dependencies of shotwell that aren't easily available through brew, for example rest and gudev which don't appear to exist anywhere for ...

Follow the apple instructions here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201065 Download OS X on to bootable USB and reinstall it from there. This way you do not have to use your Apple ID.

No, no personal information is stored unless you enter any. If you're performing a clean installation of OS X then simply set it up with a temporary administrator account, no need to sign into iCloud or register etc.

The mysql installer works just fine, I've used it many times. However, it will never appear in Applications as it is not a GUI application. And it won't appear in your terminal path unless you put it there. Mysql lives in /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql. If you also install the Mysql preference pane you can start and stop mysqld via System Preferences. There ...

My favourite way to install and run MySQL is via the Homebrew package manager. With Homebrew installed it's as straightforward as: brew install mysql This gets you the server and the command line connection tool. It's setup to run with no password, so it's not suitable for production use, but it's perfect for developing with. Homebrew takes care of ...

Give this a try. If you can get to single user mode you can remove the file that OS X checks for during boot to determine if the Mac has already been setup. If it doesn't find the file then it boots to the setup assistant, which allows you to create a new admin user. Try resetting PRAM: Shutdown the Mac While holding ⌘+option+P+R, power on the Mac ...

After downloading the Xcode.dmg, double-click the image to mount it (if it's not already mounted automatically). You will find a pkg file inside. .pkg is the file extension for software packages in OS X (and iOS). If you double-click the package the related app "Installer" will open it and you may install it. Later Xcode images (e.g. Xcode 4.6.3 - also for ...

Yes, you can install it in /Applications.

You can drag your new Firefox Application directly to the Applications folder. The folder shown on that blue window is for convenience, a 'shortcut' to your own apps folder. Either way, you need to drag the actual Firefox app [Application, though the .app is hidden by the system, like on Windows], not its container the .dmg file. A .dmg is a convenient ...

Try and format the disk by using Disk Utility built into the installer (Utility > Disk Utility) then try and reinstall. This should work since 'Macintosh HD' is only a volume and not the actual SSD. I used this method to fix the b-node tree error or whatever it is where I couldn't write to it.

You can use virtualenv to create a local "copy" of the Python installation that's owned and easily manipulated by you. The advantage to using virtualenv is you can make many copies of the same version of Python, but with different versions of similar packages installed, and then switch between them with the virtualenv command line. This lets you use ...

It will download anything if you told it to do so. It will obey your commands, down to self destruct (kill it self) if you ask it to do it. There are some preventative measures in place (but at your control) to make it safer (from you). For example the Downloads: In order to change this setting you would have to enter a Password. In your case it is ...

Yosemite ships with apache 2.4.9, php 5.5.14 already installed, tuned up and ready to roll. MySQL is readily available from their website in either tar or pkg format. It is a drop-in installation, php already knows about it. There is occasionally a socket issue, easily fixed by editing the php.ini file or just making a symlink.

I asked myself the same question and searched the file system for Nix-related files. That's what I found: # as user, remove: rm -r ~/.nix-channels ~/.nix-defexpr ~/.nix-profile # as root (sudo), remove: sudo rm -r /nix # edit the file ~/.profile and remove the line containing "added by Nix installer" Not sure if I missed some files or directories. Also, I ...

Not a brilliantly helpful answer, but a resolution nonetheless. I contacted OWC's online chat tech support, who were incredibly helpful - continuing the conversation for an hour and a half - and talked me through diagnosing the problem. The tech support rep first suggested using my old boot drive, and from there, testing whether my SSD was writable via the ...
