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!

Love this app. This has worked almost flawlessly all these years even thought it hasn't been updated. Finally it has stopped working on 10.10.3 (and maybe the supplemental update is what broke it). If this is indeed end of life then I am saddened, but at least it got me through all these years...

You say in your comment to disregard everything you said. Did you find a way to get Iceberg to work on 10.10? If so, you should probably share :)

It works on 10.10 just fine. The issue I had was caused by me in the first place.

Ah, ok. Do you mind me asking what you did? Or what your problem was and how you fixed it? I had an error saying "No signal from Iceberg Control Tower"

I clearly prefer Iceberg to Apple's PackageMaker! Christian Buerli [macfix.de] 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.

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?

These components are used to build the packages. > Additionally, why does this installer write data to /usr (/usr/local/bin/freeze and /usr/local/bin/goldin)? 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.
