    Sorry for that, none of our beta testers ever have this problem.

    Okay, let's try to see what's going on your machine with Modul8:

    - Does the application close immediatly ? Or does it stay in the dock with no windows open ?

    - Open the console by launching -> Applications/Utilities/Console. Starts Modul8 and check if anything is written in the console.

    - Do you have anything special installed that you can think about (midi table, camera plugged, ...) ?

    Thank you for your help.
    Yves.

    Okay, let's try to see what's going on your machine with Modul8:

    - Does the application close immediatly ? Or does it stay in the dock with no windows open ?

    closes immediatly. appears for 1/2 second in dock then vanishes.

    - Open the console by launching -> Applications/Utilities/Console. Starts Modul8 and check if anything is written in the console.

    Mac OS X Version 10.3.4 (Build 7H63)

    dyld: /Users/vjtk/Desktop/Modul8Demo/Modul8.app/Contents/MacOS/Modul8 can't open library: /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python (No such file or directory, errno = 2)
    dyld: /Users/vjtk/Desktop/Modul8Demo/Modul8.app/Contents/MacOS/Modul8 can't open library: /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/Python (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

    - Do you have anything special installed that you can think about (midi table, camera plugged, ...) ?

    Midisport 2x2 (usb), s-video out, ethernet, audio-in. That's it.

    Thank you for your help.

    sure thing. lokking forward to taking a look.

    Okay I know what the problem is. For a very obscure reason, Modul8 does not find Python on your machine. MacOS X 10.3 comes with Python pre-installed, so it should be there.

    Go to:

    /System/Library/Frameworks/

    And check if the following file exists:

    Python.framework

    If not, search your hard-disk for the file. If you find it, make a copy to

    /System/Library/Frameworks/

    or if you prefere:

    HOME/Library/Frameworks/

    It's pretty weird that you don't have this library, did you remove it from your system, or did you install another python version ?

    If you don't find the Python framework, download the installer at www.python.org.

    Let me know it worked,
    Yves.

    The path "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/" Python exist in your hard disk ?
    Did you install another version of python ?

    python.framework

    by MAURO » Mon Jul 05, 2004 3:21 pm

    the correct path exists, version 2.3 is installed.
    can it be that modul8 searches on my partition.
    There is an older system library of mac osx on my partition-perhaps that causes the troubles?

    That's pretty weird?!

    Try this:

    Make a copy of the framework to your home library folder:

    HOME/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework

    Let me know if it changes something...

    Thanks,
    Yves.

    Python framework

    Do you have any other versions of Python installed? (From the old MacPython in 10.2 days? Or from Fink?)

    I asked about this problem in the Python mailing list... and I received the following answer:

    You'll see this if they've deleted it somehow, or if they didn't install the "optional" BSD subsystem. The BSD subsystem is installed by default, but I guess some users like to cause themselves pain.


    I'm not a BSD specialist so I'm not sure how you disable or enable the BSD subsystem (and if it is possible at all after the system has been installed), but I'll try to find more informations about that.

    OK. I think thats the point of my problem. BSD subsystem has not been installed on my system-let me know if there is a way to enable it after the system installation.

    thanx, Mauro

    If found this on the Apple site :

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=151604

    It's pretty depressing... An OS-X re-install seems the only solution...

    You could try using "Pacifist". Get it here.

    Probably worth running your latest updater afterwards and don't forget to repair permissions.

    problem fixed

    by vjTK » Wed Jul 07, 2004 10:07 pm

    as soon as I installed the python package for 10.2 everything started working. Thanks for the help. Now it's time to figure this "intuitive" interface out;)

    by aokie » Tue Oct 26, 2004 10:00 am

    I couldn't launch the app. The Console log is...

    NameError: name 'main' is not defined
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "$##ERROR_STRUCT##$#SCENE=-1####CLASSMODE=FALSE####ACTION_TYPE=10####SCRIPT=0###$##END##$", line 1, in ?

    ......

    My system is ...

    PowerMac G4 MDD 1GHz x 2
    Memory 768MB
    Mac OS X 10.3.5 (7M34) + QT 6.5.1

    What's happened?
