  1. Hi everyone, i'm sorry if i will sound a total idiot to the most of you. Thanks to everyone who will have the patience to read the whole message. i bought this software called ivory for mac -which is a great piano plugin- and i found that the installer is not working properly on OS X Yosemite. I emailed the customer service and they told me the problem is in the installer of the dvd and they're working on developing a new installer, but they don't know exactly when. Now, i don't have any experience in scripting or programming, so I'm desperately searching for someone who wants to have a look at this script and understand why it is not working. The problem is in the end of the installation when the program executes its scripts: the first one asks for a folder where i will put all the sound libraries that's the message: Ivory library files will be installed in your current Ivory Items folder here: /Users/lucavincenzocappelli/Desktop/ivory/Ivory Items/ Press OK to proceed (recommended). and then, after i click on it, it will open another script called NoIvoryItems which gives me this message: The installer could not locate your Ivory Items folder. Please make sure that you have Ivory properly installed and the hard drive that contains your Ivory Items folder is turned on and try again. I checked the content of the installer app, in resources folder i found a "preflight" file which i can open with text edit, that should give all the instructions about running the different scripts: #!/bin/sh # Preflight script for Ivory (main product). # First, remove any stale links that might exist from a crashed install echo "" echo "Remove stale links" rm /private/tmp/IvoryInstallVol rm /private/tmp/IvoryItemsTmp rm /private/tmp/IvoryAU rm /private/tmp/IvoryVST rm /private/tmp/IvoryRTAS # $0 contains the script path, including the script name # so we can extract the path from that RESOURCE_PATH=`dirname "$0"` echo "Resource path is" "$RESOURCE_PATH" cd "$RESOURCE_PATH" echo "" SRC="/Volumes/Ivory II Grands 1" echo "Look for the Ivory II Grands 1 volume at" "$SRC" if cd "$SRC" then echo "Found it!" else echo "Failed!" ./NoIvoryDVD.app/Contents/MacOS/applet #open "./NoIvoryDVD.app" exit 1 fi PREFS_PATH="${HOME}/Library/Preferences/Ivory Preferences" echo "Preferences Path: ${PREFS_PATH}" echo "" echo "Removing InstallData files" rm -f "${PREFS_PATH}"/InstallData14* rm -f "${PREFS_PATH}"/InstallData15* rm -f "${PREFS_PATH}"/InstallData16* rm -f "${PREFS_PATH}"/InstallData17* echo "" cd "$RESOURCE_PATH" echo "" echo "Find or create Ivory Items folder, Ivory Preferences folder, Ivory Items alias" # "open" seems to fork a separate process, which does not complete before the # script continues. So we cannot use it here #if open "./CreateIvoryItemsFolder.app" createIvoryItemsFolder() { # run this script to create a new alias to II folder, or confirm the existing one ./CreateIvoryItemsFolder.app/Contents/MacOS/applet # check to see if it exists cd "$RESOURCE_PATH" echo "" echo "Resolving Ivory Items alias in " "$HOME" ./ResolveIvoryItemsTool -v "${HOME}" if ./ResolveIvoryItemsTool "${HOME}" then echo "" echo "Found it!" ALIAS=$(./ResolveIvoryItemsTool "${HOME}") echo "Ivory Items alias reolved to " "$ALIAS" else # already gave the use a chance to create one, so we exit with an error echo "" echo "Failed!" ./NoIvoryItems.app/Contents/MacOS/applet exit 1 fi } createIvoryItemsFolder # fix preset filenames echo "Look for problems with Presets filenames" echo "" if ./PresetsTool -e "${ALIAS}" -y then echo "No problems found!" else echo "Problems found with Presets filenames" ./PresetsTool -e "${ALIAS}" -y | grep INCOMPATIBLE # run an Applescript app that asks the user if they want to fix # and if so calls PresetsTool again with the -z option ./FixPresets.app/Contents/MacOS/applet fi # now that we've found both the source and destination, # create the symbolic links in /private/tmp echo "" echo "Create symbolic link to Install Volume" if ln -s "$SRC" /private/tmp/IvoryInstallVol then echo "Success" else echo "Failed" exit 1 fi DST_PARENT=`dirname "$ALIAS"` DST_FOLDER=`basename "$ALIAS"` echo "DST_PARENT is ${DST_PARENT}" echo "DST_FOLDER is ${DST_FOLDER}" echo "" echo "Ivory Items located at" "$ALIAS" echo "Create symbolic link to Ivory Items" if ln -s "$ALIAS" /private/tmp/IvoryItemsTmp then echo "Success" else echo "Failed" # clean up rm /private/tmp/IvoryInstallVol exit 1 fi echo "" echo "Set owner of Ivory Items to root:admin" cd "${DST_PARENT}" chown -R root:admin "${DST_FOLDER}" chmod a=rwx "${DST_FOLDER}" cd "${DST_FOLDER}" ls -lad exit 0 After that it should begin copying the contents. The program has over 70 Gb of files so there's 11 DVD, and the installation file comes in the first one obviously. I'm pretty sure that there's something inside one single file somewhere that stops the whole process and stops the installation, but i don't really know what to do. I will upload the scripts named in the preflight so you can check what's wrong! Do you think there's a way to create a script that can bypass this folder check telling the program the exact location of my Ivory Item folder and allow me to continue the installation process? Thanks in advance to all of you! Scripts.zip
  2. ok, now i'm really upset. i tried your terminal command and it worked with firefox! i surfed the web without any problem for 10-15 min, but then i clicked on the application folder in the dock and then clicked on an app i needed in that moment (filezilla) and then the computer got stuck again in the moment it was trying to open the app with the animation of the app itself appearing in the right corner of the dock (next to application folder)...i think there must be some problem with the osx (hoping not hardware), which has usually been shown on firefox, in a single occasion in vlc, and in this last occasion during a system operation (opening an app)!
  3. i've done it already, it still keeps crashing
  4. hy everyone, i've been owning a macbook pro retina for 2 months which has never given me any particular problem. it all started yesterday, when i was using firefox to surf the web and without any reason my computer got stuck without any possibility of recovery. only the cursor was moving but nothing else. all the apps were not responding. i've tried the classic alt+cmd+esc, waiting a few mins, closing the screen but the apple stays turned on...so i turned my computer off manually by holding the power button, however when i tried again to use firefox i discovered that everytime i click on the browser tab and i write an address, it firstly works and takes me there, but after a while it gets stuck again in the same situation and the only solution is to force the powering off. once it did this also with vlc when i clicked on the expand window button in the top right corner below. i've also tried with onyx automated scripts but nothing good came from it too. an interesting information is that i created another admin account through which i can use firefox without any problem, so this may mean that it's not a hardware issue? is there a way to identify and solve an account issue (if it is) and avoid me to change account everytime i want to use firefox? finally i paste the part of sys log that i hope can do the trick for you experts and tell me what's wrong! the clock got stuck tonight at 3:07 Jan 18 03:05:53 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca.local mdworker[690]: Unable to talk to lsboxd Jan 18 03:05:53 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca.local sandboxd[692] ([690]): mdworker(690) deny mach-lookup com.apple.ls.boxd Jan 18 03:05:54 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca kernel[0]: Sandbox: sandboxd(692) deny mach-lookup com.apple.coresymbolicationd Jan 18 03:06:14 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca.local com.apple.ShareKitHelper[548]: --warning: [shareKit-XPC] Received XPC_ERROR_CONNECTION_INVALID Jan 18 03:06:14 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca.local com.apple.ShareKitHelper[548]: --warning: [shareKit-XPC] connectionWithClientInterrupted Jan 18 03:06:14 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca.local com.apple.ShareKitHelper[548]: --warning: [shareKit] Cancel UI for running services with Client PID: 504 Jan 18 03:06:27 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca.local firefox[700]: invalid drawable Jan 18 03:06:37 MacBook-Pro-di-Luca kernel[0]: firefox (map: 0xffffff8018ad66a triggered DYLD shared region unnest for map: 0xffffff8018ad66a8, region 0x7fff90200000->0x7fff90400000.
