Audacity 2.2.0 released -- Where to post Erratum?

Post by kozikowski » Fri Nov 03, 2017 2:05 am

Mature Mac with OS-X 10.9.5.
I make copies of all DMG installers in a folder called Installers-Keys-Settings.

2.1.3 will install from right there. 2.2.0 insists on being moved to the desktop and then installing. If I don't move it, I get an error message.

It seems to run after I do that. Total experience, 8 minutes.

iMac 27" mid-2011 with OS X 10.11.4

I have no problem opening the 2.2.0 DMG no matter where I store it.

Topic moved to the Mac forum so that it is visible to the developers (I've raised this on the email list).

I'm on 10.9.5 too.

Tried to recreate from 2.2.0 dmg installer, placed in a folder in my /home.

Works as expected.

Permission problem on your Mac?

Note that permissions on my /home might be non=standard, as I already have a lot of stuff wandering around there, due to homebrew and macports installs...

I don't as a rule mess with permissions, but I did make that folder as "me" and I've never had troubles launching anything from there including other Audacity Versions. I have more than one machine with that system release. I'll check.

I think that's a wave-off.

I know what happened even if I can't reconstruct the entire performance. All the permissions between the two machines are identical (by actual count). The "Office Machine" (Mini) has a different installer.

Note the disk image file size.

I know I can get that by trying to move the "image" file into position before the system is finished downloading, and the completed download (different file) does install, but that doesn't account for my moving the broken installer to the desktop and having it succeed. It doesn't this time. Further, the machine objects strongly to me doing anything of the sort.

Thanks for the follow-up Koz. Good to know that it is not an Audacity problem, though I agree it does sound very strange in the detail.

Weird. Could the zero sized files actually be symbolic links and not complete file copies? I don't think they would appear that way in Finder though.
