FrostWire will not run on MacOSX 10.7.2

Postby alvitar » Tue Dec 13, 2011 11:52 pm

I am running MacOSX 10.7.2 on a 15" Macbook Pro with a Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM. I downloaded and unpacked FrostWire 5.2.11 and copied the application to my Applications folder. When I run FrostWire, I see the message "FrostWire is unpacking. Will be out in a few seconds...". After a few seconds, FrostWire exits. The menubar goes back to the Finder and Frostwire does not appear to be running when checked using the Activity Monitor. Is there anything I can do about this? I would appreciate any help or suggestions.

Is this your first install of Frostwire?

Did your machine come with Lion installed, or did you upgrade from Snow Leopard?

Have you run all software updates. If not re-run and install, and then re-run if necc. until no updates are available.

Please go to Applications > Utilities > Java 0r Java Preferences and tell us what you see there.

Please Open Applications > Utilities > Console. Clear the console. Try to start Frostwire. Enter Frostwire into the Console string Filter and post the resulting log, if any.

I thought the Lion compatibility had been fixed .. it looks like possibly not. All information you can give will be very useful.

This is my first time to install FrostWire. My MacBook Pro is the Mid 2010 model. It came with Snow Leopard and I upgraded to Lion. I'm running 10.7.2 and Software Upgrade says it is up to date. According to Java Preferences, I'm running Java SE 6, Version 1.6.0_29-b11-402, both 64-bit and 32-bit. The 64-bit version is first in the list.

Here's what I see in the system log after installing and running FrostWire.

can you calculate the md5 of your installer (.dmg) and paste it here?

also, that log looks like the console output of the first run ever. can you try running frostwire after that happens one more time and paste the ouput of the log on a second or posterior attempt of launching?

I'm running into problems as well:
Installed Lion, updated JAVA and then re-installed Frostwire.

When trying to run Frostwire for the first time I get an error message "You can't open the application JavaApplicationStub because PowerPC applications are no longer supported"

HELP!!!!!!

You have not said which Frostwire version you are trying to install. Please tell us.

Also from your computer details.

Please click  > about this mac > More info > Processor name


What Frostwire did you have before and were you running OS X 10.6.8?

I was running OS X 10.6.8 before the upgrade to Lion, with the most current version of Frostwire, but I can't remember offhand.

right now I am using the most current version of Frostwire, updated Java with Apple's Java from their web site.

Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics Intel GMA X3100 144 MB
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74)

When I installed the newest version of Frostwire on my friends OS X 10.6.8 it worked fine. I think Lion is being a beast!

Any suggestions as there appears to be no substitute P2P software I like to use!

thanks,

Rick

Well DUH! I looked at the "get info" on Frostwire, and "run 32 bit" was checked off! So I removed the check mark, and it runs.

The only other thing I did was copy JavaApplicationStub from path -"/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Resources/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub" to my application "Content/Resources/Java" as suggested by another post. See below!

THanks for posting that rcohen04

I remain happy that I still run OS X 10.6.8 for a number of reasons and if I was buying a new Mac I would insist it did not have Lion installed.

Well I can say my system is running fine, and much faster once Lion is installed and I upgraded Contribute CS3 to Contribute CS5, and Parallels 5 to Parallels 7. I had an old version of Corel Draw (V 11) that wasn't used much, and can't run that one any longer. No big deal, otherwise, I'm please with Lion right now. Good luck!
