My MacBook has no optical drive. I have a Mac installation disc mounted and shared on a local Ubuntu machine and can access it, on the MacBook through the Remote Disc device in Finder.
However, the installation package and all sub-packages, have been stripped of the dot in their file names. Hence it is not recognised as an package.
Why is this and how can I install the software?
(To share the disc I used openssh-server on Ubuntu and Macfusion on the Mac.)
