Where is the log for Pandora's Box?

It crashes right after the verification that base system has been restored...

The window says something about journaling and then closes.p

How do I get around this?

How do I tell you where the app crashes?

Tried running on both of my machines to creat an installer USB.

It fails to create the install USB.

This happens right after the restore of the base system and before it copies the additional applications / packages.

I am unable to show you exactly at what script step it crashes.

Okay, I am starting to test now (may be a while until I use the installer as I need to finish my build!). 

 

One thing to note though - and it may be purely my USB drive which is a USB SSD thumb drive of 16GB - is that despite the fact that I wiped the drive the script kept telling me there was not enough room on the disk. Disk Utility however was telling me that the drive was completely clear.

 

I tried various partition schemes and continued to get the same message.

 

Only then when I partitioned down to 2 partitions ( 8GB each) did the script recognise that there was enough room and continued to make the installer.

 

As I say possibly a issue at my end, but I thought I would report it just in case there is bug to look into.

 

Will report back as things progress.....

Micky

Initially I used Pandora direct from the downloads folder.

 

Then after seeing this I wiped my thumb drive again and repeated after dragging Pandora into the Applications folder.

 

Both times same result - It would not recognise I had enough space on the USB drive until I formatted to 2 partitions - then went like a dream.

 

I am working with Mavericks, the official DP1 installer, which was installed by the App Store into my Applications folder of my MacBook Air. The MBA itself is running 10.7.5.

Oh, sorry MiniHack the question was not directed to you (I was writing from my SmartPhone this morning, and I was not aware of your posts), I was asking to user esmith1977.

 

I think Pandora.app (for now) must be into Application folder, and Install app (or InsatllESD.dmg) into Desktop, but not on another partition or hard disk.

No worries Micky.

 

I am now trying to install though (10.9) and am getting a can't find mach_kernel message from the installer.

Can you try without give any option?

 

Attached File  Senza titolo.png   41.82KB   27 downloads

 

in this way the main script will ask you all the options.

The solution to this for me was to extract the installesd.dmg from the mavericks dmg and put in on the desktop and then use that to do the install.

I can confirm creating 2 partitions one of which is 8gb works with usb drive for me.

Regretably my installer does not seem to be working. Tried with ML as well as Mav. The USB stick does not seem to be seen as bootable as when set as first boot device my board ignored it and moved on to next disk.

 

I then re-partitioned as 1 partition and tried another well known installer (!) and that created the USB installer correctly which then was recognised properly by my board and went on to install 10.8.4 properly.

 

Will continue to act as a willing tester though for Pandora and keep up the good work.

Guys, is going to get an update (I think an hour), with some things corrected with the problems encountered in this Topic.
As soon as you see him try to update the app that you have already downloaded (will not be in the Download section)

Hi,
you can do a reboot of your PC/router?
I just downloaded Pandora from the download section, and updated it from his Preferences panel (download from another place), all ok!
