Both the music installer and the cardset installer fail with

"The installer could not write the receipt for <PKGNAME>"

From the installer log

Dec 29 22:35:50 Slippen pkgReceiptMaker[1966]: Error 13 (Permission denied) trying to rename /private/tmp/PySolFC-Cardsets-1.1.pkg.1955PcvcsC/Receipts/PySolFC-Cardsets-1.1.pkg to /Library/Receipts/PySolFC-Cardsets-1.1.pkg

Normally when an installer needs admin and is run as a non admin it prompts for an admin user/pass as part of the installation.

    I'll have to look into it. I did not intend for the installers to require admin privileges.

    I cannot find the "music / cardset installer" mentioned above,
    also no chapter about it in the help-documents.

    And the "PySol-Music"-download looks like it is Mac-only.
