I clearly prefer Iceberg to Apple's PackageMaker!

PS: A snapshot function would be nice. ;-)

Hi all!
After I installed Iceberg, it did not start at all under OS X 10.8 (Mac Mini Core i5). I thought the problem may be somewhere in OS, but now after upgrade to 10.9, nothing changed. All I am able to see is orange icon in the bar, a process starts, but no GUI, no application.
Can't get my work done for 3 weeks now, as Iceberg seems the best app for packaging judging by the documentation...

One more thing: the app works fine when run from terminal. It does not work when run by double clicking the icon.

fixed, it was an error in the code not in the installer :)

What is the use of the start up items that this installs? There are three of them (IcebergBuilder, IcebergControlTower, and IcebergControlTowerTool) and a plist for them. Additionally, why does this installer write data to /usr (/usr/local/bin/freeze and /usr/local/bin/goldin)? And why is there no mention that this installer will litter my drive with data beyond what an application uninstaller could find?

> What is the use of the start up items that this installs? There are three of them (IcebergBuilder, IcebergControlTower, and IcebergControlTowerTool) and a plist for them.

These components are used to build the packages.

These are command line tools. Check the documentation chapter "Frequently Asked Questions" to get more information about the freeze command line utility. goldin is a command line tool used to split forks.

> And why is there no mention that this installer will litter my drive with data beyond what an application uninstaller could find?

Check the documentation chapter "Installing Iceberg", installation blueprints are provided explaining what is installed where. Additionally, an uninstall script is provided.

If you are using PackageMaker, you are either a candidate for chewing on tinfoil for fun or you should hit the download for this immediately.

This is what Packagemaker should have been. Don't read, just download, install and smile because your installer falderal is over.


Easy to use, covers the silly manual parts that PackageMaker forces you into, flexible, compatible and definitely worth paying for... but free!
