Hi all,

I ran software update and it showed 10.4.6 is out. I did the usual and downloaded and installed the update. After downloading the update, I was returned with unable to install this package and they put it in the trash. The warning box said to drag out of trash and try again.

When I boot the installer pkg, it works until select drive and my only hd doesn't show up like it usually does. The computer reboots fine and runs normal to the eye. I wanted to rebuild permission thinking something was messed up , but disk utility says a background app needed by disk utility didn't run so I should quite DU and rerun.

Short story is I cannot run disk utility and the installer app is hosed. I never was able to run the 10.4.6 installer so 10.4.5 is still in the about this mac window and software update won't run.

Any suggestions? Not really in the mood to reinstall fresh at the moment.
