Have Something To Say ?

    Has anyone had an issue with launching Itunes post hack of the .plist?? It seems that when I alter the .plist as mentioned in the above tutorial, Itunes crashes at launch. When I revert back to the original .plist, itunes works and Ilife does not. I am running an eeepc with osx 10.5, Itunes 9.0.3 and Ilife09.

    Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

    Safari 4 also can’t be installed on a 10.5.5 System. Does this option correct this problem too?

    Here is my way.

    Just edit “iWork.dist” located at “iWork ’09 Install DVD/Packages/iWork09.mpkg/Contents/iWork.dist”

    For ilife 09, just edit “Distribution.dist” located at “iLife ’09 Install DVD/iLife ’09.mpkg/Contents/Distribution.dist”

    Its that simple.
