Unable to install smartmontools v6.5-1 into an updated Mac OS X v10.5.8/Leopard...


I just downloaded
into a very old (early 2008) 15" MacBook Pro with its new updated Mac OS
X v10.5.8/Leopard on an external USB HDD since I am trying to see if its
internal HDD is going bad (not booting up Mac OS X fully even in safe
mode and others). I am still able to access this internal HDD from the
external HDD's OS X v10.5.8 though.

Opening its downloaded smartmontools-6.5-1.dmg and running its
smartmontools-6.5-1.pkg shows "Operating could not be completed.
(com.apple.installer.pagecontroller error -1.) Couldn't open
'smartmontools-6.5-1.pkg'" error --

Thank you in advance. :)
