Xcode will not launch on Powerbook

I'm using a 1.5 GHz G4 PowerPC Powerbook (512 MB RAM, OSX 10.3.9) and I've installed the developer package of Xcode from the cd. For some unknown reason, when I double click the "XCode" application (or even interface builder) the icon bounces twice, activity stops, and nothing happens. I've installed, restarted, uninstalled, restarted, re-installed, multiple times and for the life of me cannot figure out why the app won't start. I've it running on my G5 with no problem but for some reason it will not launch on the Powerbook.

On checking the console I've received this error:
dyld: /Developer/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/MacOS/Xcode truncated or malformed library: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DevToolsRemoteClient.framework/Versions/A/DevToolsRemoteClient (file is empty)

I really have no idea what this means, as I am not a seasoned Xcode programmer.

I've also installed the latest update, 2005-005 (I believe is the number).

Thanks for any assistance.
Who is Participating?
It appears like one of the installed frameworks is toast. Installing a fresh copy of the developer tools will not re-install this framework since it believes it's installed OK.

In order to force a reinstallation of the framework you will first have to remove the receipt file "DeveloperTools.pkg" found in /Library/Receipts. Once you have deleted this file you should be able to install a fresh copy of the developer tools.

Hope this helps

Thanks for the response. I was able to install a new package (v1.5) and everything is running ok. Thanks for the help.
