Subject: Re: mystified by PackageMaker
I'm using PackageMaker to create an installation package. I want to
include a Readme, License, etc. In Apple's Software Distribution
document on page 49 I find this "Use the Resources field on the
Resources pane to tell PackageMaker about this directory."
I can't find any pane or field named "Resources". I use PM v. 2.1,
which I assume is in harmony with the document.
Unfortunately the current documentation is out of date. Sorry. We're
doing our best to get revisions made.
In the latest Package Maker (2.1) there is a button "Show Installer
Interface Editor" which lets you interactively create these items
and see what it would look like in the Installer. Far easier then
putting everything in a resources folder like the old days.
On a related note, at WWDC we're planning a couple of technical
sessions on Package Maker and Mac OS X install technologies, as well
as a few labs where you can meet and work one-on-one with the
Installer engineering team. Are you planning to attend? This is a
once a year opportunity to get this type of attention and
assistance, which can single-handedly accelerate issue resolution
and development by weeks.
