Blender does not launch on OSX (Solved)

Post by subliminimal »

I just installed blender on my mac running os x 10.4.8. I have also Python and Yafray installed, on launch blender bounces once in the menu bar and nothing happens, doesnt even launch with an error message, is this because blender is installed wrong or have something to do with one of the other programs, help please.
thanks

NEVERMIND, murphy's law you never answer your own question until you conceptualize it. Basically for anyone who runs into this prob, its because the version of Python your running must match that of Blender, python is released in its latest versions as 2.3, 2.4, 2.5 you must run blender 2.42 when using python 2.5. Works great now.

Hey, Thats interesting.

Do you say Blender 2.4.2 for MacIntel is running with Python 2.5 ?
Does it have (speed-) advantages?

It should be blender 2.42a with python 2.3 or 2.4 for any official release.

Ahh, thanks.
Thats what I supposed, must be matched. !!!!!
So Blender MacOSXi386, 2.4.2(non "a") = Python 2.3 (preinstalled)

No experiments :P

Cheers...Jens
