Mac Os X Lion without Rosetta
 
Hi all,

I'm a satisfied Mac User of Ventrilo (server and client). I'm wondering... next Mac OS X (Lion, 10.7) is just around the corner, how are we gonna be able to use the client, since Lion removes Rosetta?

Thanks in advance

i have 2 intel-based macs and neither have rosetta installed. i'm running vent on 10.4, 5, 6 and 7beta without any problems.

Great to know!

I missed the time when Vent moved to PPC to universal binaries I suppose :)

Cheers

I am running Mac OS X on one of my machines and I can say the Server doesn't work at all. Unless Ventrilo updates the Mac server that will be the case. The client on the other hand works perfectly with no update. I really hope they update or I will have to switch to Team Speak which I'd definitely rather not do. Here's to hoping.

Hi everyone,

I just installed Lion OSX 10.7 and my ventrilo has stopped working. it is version 3.0.9 (universal) - It keeps saying that "You cannot open applications that require PowerPC" - I deleted the entire application and then reinstalled it.

Anyone have suggestions? - or have any idea how I can fix this?

Thanks.

I have installed Ventrilo on Macs that have been upgraded from 10.6 to 10.7 as well as ones that have 10.7 out of the box.

It's working in all situations so the issue you are experiencing must have something to do with an older version being installed or possibly corrupted preferences.

Please Trash Ventrilo from your applications folder and also go to

Macintosh HD->Library->Preferences

and trash the Ventrilo folder.

Then download and reinstall Ventrilo. Once it's working you will need to set up your Vent server information and any preferences.

Hi,

Thank you very much jaycyn, I followed your steps and it worked perfectly.

Running a permission fix picked up an error.

Much appreciated.

i've tried what you said to do several times and it still wont work for me

ravinac 07-27-2011 06:35 PM

actually i crashed my mac and had to wipe the drive so i tried to install vent after the drive was wiped and it still will not work

zaveria 07-27-2011 10:27 PM

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).

Thanks!

Sorry for necro-ing this thread, but I just upgraded to Lion and broke my server. Any update or timeline on moving the server to non-Rosetta implementation? I'm sure people could scrape a few bucks together each to fund such a feat if the ROI isn't there.

-p

PS sorry this isn't posted in the server area; I just posted in an existing thread that happened to be in the client area.
