No Installer Packages ..

This is probably not unique to SL but I'm posting it here because it occurs on my SL install.

I restored a SL 10A380.dmg to a blank partition on one drive and then installed SL onto another drive using the OSInstall.mpkg file. Installation was successful. When I go into my SL install and try to Repair Permissions using Disk Utility I receive the following message ....

"No installer packages can be found for this disk .."

Any ideas?

Thanks.

[Solved]

I installed 402 and everything is as it should be.

If anyone has an idea why this occurs I would still like to know.

Thanks.

I would too. I didn't have the problem my first few installs (and I would get constant kernel panics no matter what I tried), but on all subsequent installs, it has done that (and fewer kernel panics). The normal googling searching yielded answers that didn't work (the basesystem.pkg bom exists). Even 10A421 did that to me my last try on repairing permissions. My last attempt didn't kernel panic after a few things I fiddled with, but I couldn't repair permissions due to that stupid error.

Either I get the MDWORKER kernel panic or I can't repair permissions but it doesn't kernel panic (much). Go figure.

Must be some file missing somewhere. I never tried it (didn't think of it) but I wonder if a re-install of the same build from the same partition would solve that problem.

I'll have to try it next time it happens.

I don't think it's a UUID problem as I checked.

Shooting in the dark here.

Damn it. My install is perfect except for 2 things (might be releated, doubt it tho)
1) I cannot boot the 64bit kernel or it KPs immediately during boot
2) This damn repair permissions error (no installer packages) even tho this is a fresh install and I haven't fracked with ANYTHING

Yes the two might be .... I remember having problems booting into 64 but I've done it so many times I can't remember what I did any more.

For #2 try what I did .... install the next version ... seems to have repaired itself.

I'm speculating that installing the same version might work but haven't tried it yet.

Update your software via Software Update and after reboot you should be able to repair permissions

Since I am running 10A432, i can't update. I will reinstall 432 ontop of itself and see if that fixes it. Be back later to let you all know if it worked.

OK ... I did two installs of SL 432 today. I restored to a temp partition and installed with OSInstal.mkpg

If I installed from Leopard .... I would get the message when I tried to fix permissions with Disk Utility

If I installed from SL .... was able to fit permissions with DU.

Now I need to get 432 up ... it keeps hanging on the last step before the desktop.

That's what I was not hoping for. So, we will need to install a temp copy of SL, then install another copy (to the HD we really want to install to) and then be able to run SL. My last attempt at SL was so unstable, it would KP randomly within the first 30 seconds at getting to the desktop. Sometimes it would be the finder, other times a different thread would KP. No pattern to it. (and this was in 32bit kernel mode, 64bit kernel mode would KP at the beginning of the boot sequence, with or without dsdt)

Everyone with similar boards, how are you installing? What bootmgr are you using? EFI install? MBR? There has to be a reason my installs are as unstable as sh**.
