Chess crashes upon launch on Hackintosh

I just tried launching Chess on my PentiumD (EM64T) box w/ netkas' SSE3 kernel and it crashes with 'Bus error'.


Chess is an x64 app as seen here:


[tomcat:/] me% file /Applications/Chess.app/Contents/MacOS/Chess

/Applications/Chess.app/Contents/MacOS/Chess: Mach-O universal binary with 4 architectures

/Applications/Chess.app/Contents/MacOS/Chess (for architecture ppc): Mach-O executable ppc

/Applications/Chess.app/Contents/MacOS/Chess (for architecture ppc64): Mach-O 64-bit executable ppc64

/Applications/Chess.app/Contents/MacOS/Chess (for architecture i386): Mach-O executable i386

/Applications/Chess.app/Contents/MacOS/Chess (for architecture x86_64): Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64

[tomcat:/] me%




So I was thinking it might be related to this so I stripped out the x32 binary using this cmd and sure enough, it works fine now.


ditto --rsrc --arch i386 /Applications/Chess.app /Applications/Chess_x86.app
