Alright, just received my copy of Leopard off amazon today and promptly did an archive & install with no hitches whatsoever. Only thing I had to do was manually go enable the setup assistant after installing so I could watch the intro movie :D (disabled it afterward).

Anywho, out of nowhere, after I logged into Leopard, I find the following sitting in my root drive:



Being slightly worried now, since 'basesystem.pkg' is exactly that, the base system package, I opened it to find two files, 'ACL.plan' and 'AdditionalEssentials.plan'. Plus the folder is read-only so I can't remove it temporarily to see if it breaks anything..

Anyone got any clues?

Deep Thought ... nice.

Possibly left over from the archive & install?

Heh, 'Deep Thought' seemed appropriate ;)

I managed to remove the folder, sudo rmed it through terminal, have it backed up just incase. Going to reboot now and hope nothing breaks, wish me luck!

No external drive -- yet! -- to have TM enabled :(

And since I'm back and apparently unharmed, I guess deleting it isn't so big an issue, thanks!
