Is Max/MSP ready/tested for the upcoming (Oct. 26) release of Mac OS X 10.5?

Thanks.

hi David,
I have no idea so I advise you to ignore me, but based on my past impressions, cycling74 don’t tend to keep bang up to date with operating system changes etc. You can be sure that there will be an update after a few months or so if necessary. Maybe it’ll just work…

In other words, I wouldn’t count on it. Wait for an announcement, probably on this forum/list.

Im not under NDA, ive tested it on a friends RC candidate, and
everything works 100% from what I tested. including my shaders! (I
was suprised)

Of course, im not in any official position to make a statement about
this, so take my testing with a HUGE grain of salt.

Hi,

A quick report for your interest.
Max/MSP/Jitter runs on Mac OS X 10.5 / Leopard.
I’ve not checked all functions yet but it seems to work fine.

My system environment is:
MacBook Pro 15" / 2.4GHz Duo 2 Core
Mac OS X 10.5 (Clean installed)
MaxMSP 4.6.3 / Jitter 1.6.3 / Demo mode (Clean installed)

Thank you.

Hi, Masayuki.

Thanks very much for letting all of us know that MAX/MSP is compatible with 10.5.

Now I’ll just have to wait for Digital Performer, Stylus, Ivory, etc. :-)

I can’t get MAX/MSP to even open with OS 10.5. It can’t seem to find the PACE extension and I get the following message even after re-installing the pace extension:

"Required software extensions are missing. Click the OK button and you trasferred to the PACE website where an installer can be downloaded."

Anyone else have this problem or know what to do about it?

Thanks.

1. try re-installing MaxMSP after you’ve installed Leopard

2. if that doesn’t work, wait until http://www.paceap.com has a new
download for PACE, and then install the latest PACE drivers

3. in the meantime, you should be able to open Max Runtime

Yeah, I just tried reinstalling MAX/Msp. Same deal – it can’t find the extension. The version of PACE that I’m directed to is presumably current for 10.5, at least according to their website. I sent an email to their tech support about it. Hopefully I’ll hear back.

AllI can say is I have it running just fine with an iLok dongle. try
repairing your permissions, then re-installing? Maybe manually
removing the Pace kernel extensions ?

Just tried. No good. I’ll download the latest version of MAX and see if that works.

Hi Joseph,
Did you install OS 10.5 over a previous install of 10.4?
If so, it may help to do a clean install of the PACE extensions:

First you will need to remove these files:
/System/Library/Extensions/PACESupport.kext
/System/Library/Extensions/PACESupport2.kext
/Library/StartupItems/PACESupport/
/Library/Application Support/PACE Anti-Piracy/

Then download and install the latest InterLok extensions.

These can be found at:

http://paceap.com/dldrvr.html

Let us know how you get on. We don’t have enough info at this time to
say for certain, it is highly likely that you will get the best results
from a clean OS install.

Best,
Andrew B.

Also, it might help to use that legendary prebind script.
Just search lists for pace and prebind.

Sorry to keep this going, but have problems been on intel macs or ppc
or both? I’m on a ppc, and I haven’t noticed anyone specifying. I
know I should wait until some gigs are over, but I’m clearly anxious.
If anyone’s had ppc success, please let me know.

Thanks,
Keith

My problems are on both an Intel laptop and a ppc tower. I downloaded and installed Max 4.6 and all was fin but Max 4.3 still won’t open. I really can’t afford to upgrade so I’ll probably just go back to 10.4.
