FLACImporter 1.0 released

Post by sbooth » Sun Jan 21, 2007 11:13 pm

I've had some code floating around to do this for the better part of a year, and I finally got around to releasing it. It's a Spotlight importer for FLAC files. More info at http://sbooth.org/importers/.

This was my first attempt at making an install package. I guess it shows!

Is there an entry in the log to indicate what kind of error?

Thanks so much this is awesome, though I'm a bit bummed because I'm having trouble installing the importers as well. Everything seems to go fine except the installer ends with 'There were errors installing the software; Please try installing again.' Repeat and the same thing happens.

I looked in the /var/log/install.log and this is the only relevant bit I found. The failed install for the Ogg importer is basically identical, though I'll post it if you want.
Hope this helps and thanks again.

Apparently the post-install script is bad. I will try and fix it and remove it if I have no luck.

I've fixed the problem. It was something really silly- the postinstall script did not have the executable bit set! The archives are updated, so the installers should work now.
