    Default Waiting for other installations to complete
    Anyone ever see this message on Snow Leopard 10.6.3?

    Waiting for other installations to complete

    It sits there for hours and then the install fails. Searched around but no definite answer. I have two installs that I'd like to do but can't.

    Regards,

    Start with Snow Leopard first and don't install anything else. If that doesn't work, install the others before Snow Leopard.

    So you're suggesting I should reinstall Snow Leopard?

    I thought you were updating Snow Leopard.

    Well, try installing one thing at a time.

    No I've had Snow Leopard installed for quite a while now...First time I've had to install anything though.

    Try this:

    sudo rm /private/var/db/mds/system/mds.install.lock

    Oh, and you may need to do a reboot too
