I just noticed that 10.10.3 was available and tried it again. I am guessing that others noticed this bug and reported the problem for 10.10.2. createinstallmedia works as expected.

I'm not recommending this to anyone, just thought I'd report on what worked for me: Let Yosemite upgrade sit at the white progress bar screen at 50% for 4 hours. Once I was nearly positive it wasn't doing anything like writing to the hard drive... Held power button for 10 seconds to turn computer off Waited about 10 seconds again Turned power on and held ...

You could try installing a temporary OS onto a removable USB drive & use that to boot the other machine - then update it from that external boot using the regular installer.

The best I could come up with was this: pkgutil --expand package.pkg /tmp/pkg; cat /tmp/pkg/PackageInfo | grep ./Applications | grep -m 1 .app\" | awk '{ print $3, $2 }'; rm -rf /tmp/pkg Not the most elegant solution, so I'm still searching for a way to do this without having to extract the .pkg first.

There is no registry on OS X. Related files get distributed in your user's or systems library (usually Application Support, and Preferences). To completely uninstall an Application either use the official Uninstaller if the developer/company provides one or depend on external tools like AppCleaner.

No, you will need admin rights to install that where it would be able to be used in the way you need it to be.

This happened to me, too. I do not know the reason exactly, but I think it has something to do with the upgrade to the 10.10.3 beta. My Installer.app (located in: /System/Library/CoreServices/ file had a circle on it at the file size was just 52 KB. Luckily I had another Mac (running plain 10.10.2) around and could just copy the file over with a USB stick. ...

When you install Anaconda, it installs a different version of Python, which has SciPy, NumPy, pandas, matplotlib, and whole lot of goodness bundled with it. However, those libraries won't automatically become usable by your other Python version that comes pre-installed on your computer (or any other Python version that you installed yourself). From the ...

The # is usually used in shell command samples to show the shell prompt and should not be entered. As it is also the comment indicator, the command you've entered just does nothing. Make sure you are logged into an account with Administrator privileges to run the command. Then run easy_install -U livestreamer or (only if the above gives you "access ...

Yes, the option boot is independent of any OS present on the disk. You can always alt-boot, even booting off an external disk or network disk if there isn't any disk present in the computer at all.

Well, you're writing 'eye3D' instead of 'eyeD3', that's probably it. You want: sudo pip install eyeD3

Cask does not clean up old versions by default. It stages the installs in /opt/homebrew-cask/Caskroom/$APPNAME and then symlinks them in to ~/Applications or /Applications depending on the brew recipe. And then it leaves the old versions around until you run brew cleanup. You can see old installs of OpenOffice under /opt/homebrew-cask/Caskroom/openoffice. ...

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 ...
