The customary thing to do in cases like this is to contact the 
distributor ;-)

I assume btw that you are talking about my teTeX.dmg, not CMacTex, as 
you wrote earlier:

Which implies to me you have been able to install teTeX.dmg.

The current distribution is: ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/comp/macosx/tex-

There have so far been 2 *reported* cases (since the first release early 
summer) of the TeXGSInstaller hanging (that is, reported to me).

- The first case was the consequence of the user having set various tcsh 
aliases which interfered with my scripts. This I fixed for the August 
- The second case was because the user had changed his Home directory in 
NetInfo manager to something ending in a '/'. Why this hangs my 
installation, I have not yet investigated, but if it is something that 
can be prevented, you can count on it that I will update my distribution.
