cnmat package cfm - not available for PowerPC


    Jan 26 2007 | 3:11 pm
    Hi,
    I try to install CNMAT's latest version of their objects. On my
    titanium g4, under OSX39, for Max/MSP 457. First, Safari complains that
    it can't decompress the file (and indeed, BOMArchiveHelper doesn't open
    it, nor does gunzip in a shell). UnStuffit can decompress the file, but
    all externals lost their type/creator metadatas. Even when I set the
    creator/type (or add a suffix) of these files, Max don't load the
    externals and just says "not available for PowerPC" when I try to
    instantiate them. Using Install... or dble-clicking on the externals
    doesn't help.
    I feel very stupid... especially because I think there was recently a
    topic on the forum about the same kind of problem, but cannot find it
    anymore (like the mp3 or Kasper's recent story...).

      Hi Patrick-
      I'll look into it; I thought we'd fixed this problem, but I doubt we tested it under Panter.

      Hi,
      I had the same problem. But it works when you download the externals
      individualy rather than the whole package.

      Same error here some time ago, so I simply changed the suffix of the file to .zip and everything worked.
      Hope this help
