Installing Iceberg

This document shows how to install Iceberg from the disk image you downloaded or obtained via other means.

Iceberg being a tool to build packages and metapackages, it shall not be a surprise that its installer is a package built by itself.

System Requirements

Installing Iceberg on a single computer

1Double-click the Iceberg disk image file to mount it on the desktop.
2Double-click the Iceberg volume.
3Double-click the Iceberg.pkg package to start the installation.

Follow the instructions displayed by Installer.

Note: When the files are going to be installed, Installer will look for the location of a previous version of Iceberg. This may last a bit if this is the first time you're installing Iceberg. If no previous versions are found, the Iceberg application will be installed in /Applications.

Installing Iceberg on a remote computer

Iceberg being distributed as a package, it is possible to install it on a remote computer. Depending on the version of Mac OS X you're running, there are two possible methods for remote installation:

Installing with the installer tool


Copy the Iceberg.pkg package to the remote computer.

Note: If no file sharing services (FTP, AppleShare, etc.) is running on the remote computer, you will have to move yourself to make the copy and installation.
2Connect to the remote computer using ssh or telnet.
3Move to the directory where the Iceberg.pkg package has been copied.

Type the following command:

$ installer -pkg Iceberg.pkg -target /
5Press Return.
