Description

16 years ago
Build 2001113008 on MacOS 8.6 using the 13MB big blob installer.

Attempting to install the DOM inspector using the custom install option fails
with error -214 (mozilla runs fine otherwise). Relevant part of the install log
appears to be

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
file:///Mac%20HD/Desktop%20Folder/Mozilla%20Full%20Installer/Installer%20Modules/inspector.xpi
 --  11/30/2001 21:37:01

The install.js included with inspector.xpi has the line

  err = addDirectory("", "5.0.0.2001121008", "bin", fProgram, "", true);

but the actually goodies are in the "viewer" folder in the Mac version of
inspector.xpi.  Changing "bin"->"viewer" allowed me to install successfully.

Presumably, then, the fix is to make line 9 of

http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/xpinstall/packager/mac/inspector.jst

point to the right directory in the .xpi?
Reassigning to hewitt for the obvious install-script change (thanks for the
legwork, Brad!). I'm sure he cares about this more than syd :-)

nominating for the 0.9.7 train, it's low-risk/high-gain
