IRIN DL solved


    Apr 12 2006 | 3:57 pm
    For some strange reason, my server doesn't like .sitx files.
    I replaced it with a .zip file, and now dl is available.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.
    Thank you all, for your comments and alerts!
    Cheers,
    Carlos

      Carlos:
      D/L'd successfully, but cannot get it to launch - it bounces once in
      the dock, then stops. In the Console, I see that "Launch failed with
      error code -2857 (cfragCFragRsrcErr)".
      I'm on a G5 with OS 10.4.6
      Ideas?

      Hi,
      That's strange. IRIN opens perfectly in my machine (iMacG5, MacOx10.4.6).
      Before trying any fix, tell me:
      Do you have Max/MSP installed, if so, is it version 4.5.7? for some strange reason MAX standalones are not a fully_self_contained app. If there’s a Cycling74 folder inside /library/application support, this folder will override the correspondent one inside the standalone app. If that one is older than the one from the standalone, it will cause problems.
      Did you upgrade to MacOx10.4.6 via automatic updater (apple menu)?
      As reported in the Max forum, this method is causing problems to Max and standalones. You should use the MacOsXCombo updater(http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/macosx1046com boforppc.html)
      Regards,
      Carlos

      Yes. But here is what I did; when you FIRST announced your site, I
      managed to successfully download your software then. At that point,
      I was still on 4.5.6. The next day, I upgraded to 4.5.7. I then
      downloaded your new version. And now I cannot open your new version.
      I trashed the IRIN prefs that I found, but that did not help.

      See above. I am now on 4.5.7, so shouldn't be a problem?

      No, I used the Combo updater. To be fully sure, I just re-applied
      the Combo updater - no change.

      Afraid not!
      One thing that I noticed - when I unzip the IRIN.zip, there seem to
      be lots of files with ".1" added to their end - for example, there is
      a "DemoFile", and then a "DemoFile.1". Likewise, many of the files
      in the subfolders have this also.
      Perhaps there's something wrong with the .zip??
      Thanks,
      Dan

      That's weird dan, in my Mac the file unzips Ok. Do You have the latest unzip software (I used version 10.0.1 alladyn dropstuff)?
    • Apr 13 2006 | 4:37 pm
      I'm just using the built in Mac's zip ability. I've been extremely
      unsattisfied with Stuffit for a few years now, and it seems as though
      they screw things up more and more with each new release.
      Can you take your good source folder, ctrl-click on it, and select
      "Create Archive"? That should make a .zip of it, using the Mac's
      built in functions - then you could either e-mail that to me, or post
      on your site?
      Thanks!

      The error message seems to indicate that the Code Fragment Manager is
      looking for information stored in a Classic Mac OS Resource Fork.
      Between that and

      it sounds like IRIN.zip was doing something with zipping resource
      forks that is incompatible with the way your unzip program expects
      resource forks to be zipped.
      In the year 2006 this should not be a problem anymore. StuffIt
      handled this stuff absolutely reliably 20 years ago. But this doesn't
      get you any further. I would suggest that Carlos try using the Mac OS
      "Create Archive" command (from the Context Menu for documents).

      Another wild guess: perhaps your server doesn't have a MIME type
      associated with the .sitx suffix. There are solutions to this
      problem, but they also depend of fiddling with files that most people
      aren't even allowed to see, let alone modify. A Unix Guru might be
      able to help you.

      This in fact did work (Carlos e-mailed me off list). The .zip that
      is at this moment on his site is the Mac OS created one, and it works
      fine. Like I said, Stuffit has gone to h*ll.
      Best,
