In this section you will be creating a distribution package for DailyJournal. The first thing you need to do, having opened up the DailyJournal project, is to set the Release Build Configuration. I won t go into detail here since you did this just a few pages back. Check that the application builds and runs OK, just to be sure nothing has gone awry.

You will find PackageMaker in /Developer/Applications/Utilities. Open up the application. The first things you are asked for are your organization and the minimum OS version you are targeting. The organization value is used to set the names of preferences and similar files in Library/Preferences and other folders. See Figure 15 7.

Once past that initial window, you need to start setting up the installer project. There are essentially two files that you need to think about here: the PackageMaker document, which is your collection of configuration options that are used to create the installation package, and the installation package itself. The various options that you ll be setting here will be stored in the PackageMaker document file (stored with a .pmdoc extension) and that document is used to provide the data to build the installation package file (stored with a .pkg extension). You can save the PackageMaker document file any time you want, and like any file it s worth periodically saving your work in case things go wrong. Start now and save the document file in a convenient location with a sensible name. I chose DailyJournal installer as the name.

The first thing to do is to add the payload the application itself. Find the DailyJournal.app that you recently built (it will be in the project folder, in build/Release) and drag the application file into the left pane of the PackageMaker window. The icon and title appear in that pane (Figure 15 8).

Figure 15 8. Adding the content payload
CAUTION: Notice the Allow Relocation option circled in Figure 15 8. This should not be checked, though it is by default. Leaving it checked will result in your installation failing and failing silently, which is even worse. So unchecking this option is a high priority!
Package Content Configuration
Turn to the Configuration tab. In most cases you won t need to change these settings, but understanding them is crucial. The Install: setting specifies the location of the payload the app file that you just added to the package. The destination is /Applications by default. If you keep this option you should also make sure that Require admin authentication is also checked (because most Macs require admin privileges to install into /Applications). It s also a good idea to leave the Allow custom location option checked, since this gives the user some flexibility if she wants to install the application elsewhere. For most applications, you should not require the user to restart her Mac. See Figure 15 9.

Package Content Ownership
The next tab is the Contents tab, and this is used to set the owner, group, and privileges for your application. The advice in the Apple Documentation is that these should all be set to root as owner and admin as group (if you take a look at a typical application in /Applications and open the Package Contents, this is how they tend to be set). Given that, it seems a bit odd to me that these values are not set this way by default in PackageMaker. Be that as it may, it s a good idea to set them now. Use the disclosure arrow to open up the entire file tree and select all of the files. Set the owner to root and the group to admin, and check the Group Write flag if it is not already checked. See Figure 15 10 to see how things should look now.
