Max on OSX Lion not starting up

Post by coredump » Wed Apr 18, 2012 12:59 pm

Hi,

I've been using Max on OSX for a while now. I recently wanted to rip a number of CDs but when i click on Max, it launches and the icon bounces in the Dock but when i click on it to try and bring Max to the forefront, the entire application quits and no GUI or errors are presented.

I've tried the following:

1. launch Max with and without an audio CD in the drive.
2. removed all traces of existing Max and installed a new copy of Max 0.9.1 which i downloaded from the website.
3. removed all traces of existing Max and installed a new copy of Max svn revision 1438.

I'm currently running the following:

Max Version 0.9.1
OSX 10.7.3

Any ideas what might be going wrong? What info should I gather to report the problem to the developers?

Hi,
I had the same behaviour with:
Mac Os X 10.7.3
Max 0.9.1
Max-r1438 (unstable version)

Message in console is:
May 8 22:07:36 haralds-imac com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[120] ([0x0-0x62062].org.sbooth.Max[1963]): posix_spawn("/Applications/Max.app/Contents/MacOS/Max", ...): Permission denied
May 8 22:07:36 haralds-imac com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[120] ([0x0-0x62062].org.sbooth.Max[1963]): Exited with code: 1
May 8 22:07:36 haralds-imac Dock[141]: no information back from LS about running process

In Terminal I did:
chmod 755 /Applications/Max.app/Contents/MacOS/Max

Start Max and that's all!
