Description

running on leopard / mac mini

was running b4 fine - now after installing b5 I get the spiffy new logo which when selected gives the terribly useful message "An error has occurred" (bless apple) and Front Row quits out.

I tried removing all the application support stuff and same deal.

I reinstalled B4 and it works fine again...

I checked in console and there were no messages and nothing was sent to crash reporter.

Same here. Although I'm running on the ATV with Safe Update and Finder doesn't even start.

Removing B5 makes it all better again.

We need more information to diagnose this problem. Are both of you sure there is nothing in the console?

I posted the initial request

I've tried my best to find anything in console but beyond saying that front row has started there is nothing other than 'there was an error' within front row. It doesn't register as an actual 'crash' so crash reporter does nowt.

I did manage to install it fine on my powerbook (looks great) so am wondering if it's just something odd about my mini.

I checked permissions / checked the drive / cleared prefs / all software is up to date blah blah

Scratching head...

Useful huh.

Same

Dreadfully useful.

I am hoping you know enough to be able to run gdb? If so, maybe debugging frontrow can help figure it out. You need to ssh in from another computer to do it, and there are other steps like there are for  iTunes, but maybe it'll provide the answer.

I am having a similar problem. I installed sapphire using a windows machine and also tried the ATV loader. Once it is installed all that happens is that sapphire freezes and then after some time the ATV reboots. I used the uninstall/install procedure in the wiki. Contact me if you wish to discuss.

I am having the same problem with Leopard 10.5.2 on a PowerPC iMac. I have some development experience, and could maybe help you debug it.

so i've been putting up with b4 - updated front row yesterday - tried b5 again... and it worked!

obviously something dodgy going on with my original install...

happy now! Roll on B6

The Front Row update hasn't fixed my problems. I did notice that the following message was logged to the Console when Front Row was launched

4/7/08 12:18:06 AM Front Row[331] +[SapphireAppliance className] called for Leopard/ATV2 whitelist check, so I'm lying, m'kay?

Updating to b6 made no difference. (b4 still seems to work).

I forgot to mention that removing the Application Support folder also made no difference.
