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.

Start with Snow Leopard first and don't install anything else. If that doesn't work, install the others before Snow Leopard.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

So you're suggesting I should reinstall Snow Leopard?

I thought you were updating Snow Leopard.
Well, try installing one thing at a time.Asking for help is different from being stupid. Fanboys can rot in @#$%!

sudo rm /private/var/db/mds/system/mds.install.lock
Oh, and you may need to do a reboot too

Permissions issue maybe?
