Installation error reporting now available in First Boot Package Install

Following up on a pull request by Matthew Kweskin, I’ve updated First Boot Package Install so that it now reports whether an installation has succeeded or failed. This error reporting is in addition to the error logging recorded by OS X’s installer tool to /var/log/install.log.

For those interested, here are the changes to First Boot Package Install‘s firstbootpackageinstall.sh script.

I’ve updated the First Boot Package Install GitHub repo with the new First Boot Package Install installer package, along with updating the posted firstbootpackageinstall.sh script and the Iceberg project files with the changes.

    I hope this doesn’t sound like a silly question, but is First Boot the same as next boot?

    Yes, while it’s generically used for bootstrapping, to prepare an imaged computer post-restore, it could be used for any ‘before proceeding with the login window upon next boot’ need.
