August 2003 update - install problem - Mac Programming

Hi, I am going to get a G5 soon and want to start optimising my code for its 64-bit processor. So I've downloaded the August 2003 gcc updater. When I try to install it on my PowerBook G4 Titanium,I get the message "Mac OS X version 10.2 and the December 2002 Developer Tools are required for this update." My PowerBook runs OS X 10.2.8, and I've re-installed the Dec 02 Tools a few days ago. Why doesn't it work ? Will it only work on a G5, or only on an earlier version of 10.2, or do I need to ...

    Default August 2003 update - install problem


    Hi,

    I am going to get a G5 soon and want to start optimising my code for its
    64-bit processor. So I've downloaded the August 2003 gcc updater. When
    I try to install it on my PowerBook G4 Titanium,I get the message "Mac
    OS X version 10.2 and the December 2002 Developer Tools are required for
    this update." My PowerBook runs OS X 10.2.8, and I've re-installed the
    Dec 02 Tools a few days ago. Why doesn't it work ? Will it only work
    on a G5, or only on an earlier version of 10.2, or do I need to change
    the placement of the Developer Tools, or ... ?? I've downloaded the
    updater from two different sites (Europe and USA2), both behave the same.

    Many thanks in advance for any suggestions,
    Karen

    If you dig down into the installer there's a Perl script called
    InstallationCheck that checks things out to decide whether to install.
    There are several checks, though it appears the Mac OS X version should
    accept anything more recent than 10.2.0 and prior to 10.3.0. You'd have
    to go though the other checks for your system to see what's tripping it
    up.

    Yes... and how do I do this ? Unfortunately, I don't have any useable
    knowledge of Perl. Are there any straightforward instructions you could
    give me, how to "dig" into the installer ?
    Thank you !

    Using the command line is the easiest way to look inside the installer
    package, IMHO. You don't really need to know Perl; if you look at the
    script, it's pretty obvious which files it's looking at and what it
    wants to find in them before deciding to install.
