I retract my statement about ventrilo working.

I didn't restart my MAC since I posted my response....when I restarted however , I got the same "Cannot launch PowerPC" error. I did do the same methods to correct this, such as permissions fix, delete the ventral folder in preferences and I also uninstalled it and installed it multiple times.

Anyone else got any suggestions? - or any tips/tricks?

Very frustrating as I cannot communicate with any players.

Your post says

tried to install vent

Does that mean it won't install? Or it doesn't work after installing?

Did you download it from the vent website? At what point does it not work?

Ventrilo (Server Client) will NOT run on a machine that is running Mac OS X Lion. This is because the ventrilo server software provided by Flagship industries is a PowerPC application, and will not run on an intel based machine except through rosetta (as stated).

Unfortunately Apple has dropped all support for rosetta with Mac OS X Lion (Rosetta will not work with Lion even if you install it manually), which is why you get the error when trying to run the server software through Terminal (or by other means on a machine running Lion).

Theres only 3 options available to fix this:

1. Downgrade to Mac OS X Snow Leopard (to which Rosetta is still supported)
2. Wait for Apple to come out with an update for PowerPC App support (I Wouldn't count on it)
3. Wait for Flagship Industries to update its software for Mac Intel support (Which is likely, I just don't know when that will be)

I'm sorry your having difficulty getting a server online, but if your only looking to run the Ventrilo program, there is an updated client that works on Lion, and you can download it at the site's homepage.

Best of Luck!

The above post mentions Server Client

I think we need to clarify that the Ventrilo Client, which is what a majority of folks use is fully compatible with 10.7 Lion.

The original post was asking about the client, not the server and somewhere along the way the server application was mentioned (which as stated above does not work on Lion currently).

Is Flagship Industries working on an Intel / OSX Lion compatible version of the server? If so, is there any ETA information yet? Thanks so much!

You can rent a server from here.

Lion Compatible Server?
Flagship: Any update on if there are plans to produce an OSX Lion compatible server version? I know I can rent a Ventrilo server; however, I have run my own for several years. Reason being we only use it once in awhile, and, it's just for an internal, small number of friends. Thanks as always!

Also anxiously awaiting a Lion server version (non Rosetta).
