Hello everybody,

I experienced some problem with CocoAspell after migrating to my  
Intel Macbook and thought some people here might find the solution  

I had migrated from an iBook via Apple's migration assistant, so I  
had an old PPC version of CocoAspell on the system which did not work  
any more.
But it turned out that I was unable to update to the Intel version  
using the installer:
The installer updated the English language files, but the GNU Aspell  
and the Spelling packages were greyed out.

In the end I was able to solve the problem by removing the receipt  
files from the old installers (which had been migrated by the  
migration tool as well) -- afterwards the installer worked fine, and  
cocoAspell works great again now.

The following files have to be deleted:

Anton Leuski has already confirmed the problem.
