I had a problem and found a solution that I thought I'd share. While installing XCode 4.1 on our new Mini Server a non-model dialog popped up stating that the install could not continue because iTunes was running. But iTunes wasn't running. Then I remembered a deamon process that had "iTunes" as part of it name.


I went to the Terminal window and typed "top" which shows a list of running processes. I noticed "iTunesHelper" was running, made note of it's process ID (PID) and quit "top" (just press "q").


Then I typed "sudo kill kill <that process ID><return>" and ignored the error message.


The non-model dialog dissapeared and the install continued.
