Upack .pkg from MacOSX in Linux

January 19th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Small info how to unpack from .pkg file on linux. As it seems little hard to find out 😉

First you need xar – eXtensible ARchiver – available at http://code.google.com/p/xar/. Just download, unpack, configure, make , make install 😉

Next , you need just do xar -t -f something.pkg –  it will extract files , for example (Bom PackageInfo , Payload, Scripts). All data should be in Payload file.

Last one , just uncompress that Payload file – gunzip -c Payload | cpio -i

All done, MacOSX @#&*$#
