Max on intel MacBook crashes


    Mar 06 2006 | 11:57 am
    I trying to get Max/MSP work on a MacBook Pro, but after i installed max i cannot set it to open it with rosetta. With some other PowerPC programs it's not necessary, it recognises it's a PowerPC application and the applications just work.
    But Max crashes, i get a sort a sort of grey screen which says hold your on/off button pressed to turn the computer off.
    The strange thing is when i make a standalone application of a patch on a PowerPC and try it on the MacBook then it works (it recognises it as a PowerPC application).
    Do i something wrong with the installing, or what could i do to get it work?
    thanks in advance,

      max isn't supported yet on mactel. the problem with rosetta is pace security, which doesn't work.
      runtime (which is included in standalone) doesn't need pace.

      You'll have to manually uninstall PACE.
      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 (v.5.3.3, Jan 17).
      These can be found at:
      Let us know how you get on

      Yep,..
      it worked, thanks for the support
      The only thing when i start up, the max window gave me 3 errors:
      •error: (mxj) calling_JNI_CreateJavaVM from bundle -1
      •error: Unable to create JVM
      •error: Jitter Java support: could not find jvm

      FWIW, to our knowledge there is no solution to the above problem. You
      will have to wait until the release of MaxMSP 4.6 to use mxj on
      MacTel books. Until such a time, we recommend using OS X MaxMSP on
      PPC, as there are also significant performance problems running under
      Rosetta anyway.

      Speaking of this, when's 4.6 coming? Is this just a matter of weeks or
      months, or is the work at C74 focused on 4.5.7 and a new version is not
      in view for the near future?

      Please see archives. As mentioned previously, no official date. We're
      working on it.
