So two weeks ago I had purchased the 10.6 xcode from the app store. Today I was updating it after I just got lion (7gb in total downloads in one week for one app.

Through the install, I get a message in the installer:

Error encountered check /var/log/install.log:

I'm not sure what's going on but I'd like to get it fixed.

There seem to be an issue with your sudo name:

./preinstall: sudo: unknown user: ahmed

I would suggest:

  1. open a new administrator account (In the System Preferences)
  2. Login with this new account
  3. Try to install XCode with it. (Copy your "Install XCode" package into a common folder like /var/tmp)
  4. If installation successful, go back to your old account and investigate what could potentially be wrong with this account.
  5. If not give us a comment.
  • I think that's the issue. What happened is I changed my user login handle in 10.6.6 (manually), When I upgraded to 10.7, user migration screwed up my computer. I'd like to not reinstall OSX as i have apps that are literally 5 to 10gb in size. – dassouki Oct 1 '11 at 14:30

I have seen this "funkiness" when iTunes was not yet updated. Have you run software updates to iTunes / Quicktime after installing Lion, reboot and trying the installer again?

change your mac day on your Xcode version release like 4.2 = 12/10/2012

    What exactly are you proposing here, setting the system date to the Xcode release date? How would this help? – nohillside Dec 10 '12 at 7:05
