Like to make some install packages but can't seem to find some thing that will so it and is free.
Is there not one in xTools?
The developer tools has one for free, go to /Developer/Applications/Utilities/
yeah, xtools installs one under:
Developer > Applications > Utilities > PackageMaker
let me quote a site with a packagemaker howto:
Thanks, maybe I'll just zip the files up.
You might also want to try Iceberg.
Sticking the Application in a .zip or a .dmg is the usual Mac way of doing things.
Probably for the best. Oftentimes when I see installers I get nervous.
I think I feel most comfortable with something that installs by drag and drop from a disk image, also.
Even better with something that allows me to run it from the disk image.
For me, it is knowing that it isn't gonna try to ask me for root access to install a .app file. When an app demands root access for no reason that I can see, I get nervous, and most installer packages require root access.
