    Exclamation Installer.app hanging

    Well I finally after hours over a keyboard hammering in terminal during ungodly hours, I have OS X running quite nicely, Only one problem; Installer.app does not work which is nearly crippling as I can't install some things that I need. Some programs I could get around this by just opening up the package and pulling out the program, but not for everything. Anyways, I've exhausted all ideas on my side, so I am posting here. Basically whenever I open any pkg it opens the welcome screen and pinwheel and never changes. If I open Installer.pkg itself I can select a pkg, then it pinwheels.

    What I have tried:
    -Permissions on Install.app are correct, along with the pkg's
    -Tried in root account & sudo'ing installer.app
    -Tried replacing and merging installer.app with any and all I could find on the install disc (hacked/modified ones too and it is the same with the other ones that actually do run)

    Something tells me this is a framework issue. Is this an issue any of you know of? Ideas? Thanks guys!

    Sorry for double post, but I have tried a few more things here and I now have an additional question.

    I tried getting a list of all the files that Installer.app is using in /System/Library/Frameworks/ from activity monitor and replaced them from the corresponding from a hacked pkg on the install disc

    That didn't work. I was then going to try and Archive and Install; Preserving user and network settings, but to my dismay, the install disc did not have the "Options" button on the "Select a destination volume" screen. Is it possible to do an Archive and install with the "JaS OS X 10.4.7" disc? I also have a hacked 10.4.8 disc, but it doesn't make it past the grey screen with the Apple logo and spinning gear. Is it possible to do an install through single-user mode?

    What does the console report when you launch Installer ?

    Download Fseventer and start it before running installer.app

    It will report all the files opened/used/saved/created by installer.app

    Check where it hangs (the last file used).

    Code:
    /Applications/Utilities/Installer.app                                         11:58:57 PM      App Launched        System
    /Users/*****/Library/Preferences/com.apple.installer.plist     11:59:01 PM      Content Modified    Installer 
    /Users/*****/Library/Preferences/com.apple.installer.plist     11:59:01 PM      Stat Changed         Installer 
    /Users/*****/Library/Preferences/cf#G918J                         11:59:01 PM      Rename                 Installer 
    /Users/*****/Library/Preferences/com.apple.installer.plist     11:59:01 PM      Rename                 Installer
    Thats all that Fseventer reported that Installer did. Any clues as to what might be going on?

    EDIT: After testing a little more, all of the above activity only occurs when launching Installer.app. Meaning if I launch the Installer.app by double clicking it in /Applications/Utilities and selecting a pkg from there, all that activity happens when the app launches and none happens when I select the pkg from there. When I open a pkg by double clicking it with Installer not running the only thing Fseventer only reports the launch of Installer.app and nothing more.

    Tried deleting /Users/*****/Library/Preferences/com.apple.installer.plist ?

    Repaired the Permissions system disk permissions with Disk utilty ?

    You can reinstall only Installer using Pacifist to open your OS X Install DVD and search "installer.app" and install it on /Applications/Utilities/

    Check this also, it might help.

    Might be bad burn or (very slightly) corrupted download which has left Installer corrupted. I remember trying to use a bad burn once, that was... interesting....

    I think I tried pulling that plist already, wasn't too sure, so I tried again. That didn't work. I did repair permissions already. Could possibly be a bad burn. It was copied from another disc, so quite possible. Do you guys know of a good torrent? Preferably 10.4.10 or 10.4.11? Appreciate the help guys.

    EDIT: As I was just messing around here I realized your theory neonkoala might very well be what is happening. I realized I did skip that installation disc checksum verification.
