GUI Problems On OSX 10.5.8

Postby ditabeardmemo » Wed Jun 01, 2011 4:38 am

Hi everyone:

My new KryoFlux unit just arrived, and I'm having some problems with the GUI on Macintosh OSX 10.5.8. When I run the .ui file, it crashes within 10 seconds and displays the error message, "The Java JAR file ... could not be launched. Check the Console for possible error messages."

The Console displays some error messages about ClassNotFound, screen grab attached.

The hardware connection and driver installations went smoothly, so I'm not sure what is wrong. The KryoFlux and the hard drive (a TEAC) appear to respond normally when I use the Terminal control.

Any help would be most appreciated!

It's an Intel Mac Pro from mid-2009. Specs are attached.

Which version of Java are you using? Did you try the latest version from the Java Website?

I'll need to look at my system tonight to see which version of Java I'm running.

That said, I'm pretty sure it is the latest version. I ran Software Update (per the instructions here: http://www.java.com/en/download/apple_m ... ?locale=en) and Apple didn't come back with any updates.

The UI requires at least Java 1.6 update 10. Can you open a terminal, and type:

java -version

By the looks of that error, you probably somehow have an older one activated. Perhaps Java 5, if you have all the updates, since Apple installs all the last major versions, and then stick their own version on it.

Thanks for the information. Here is what the Terminal read:

java version "1.5.0_28"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_28-b04-382-9M3326)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_28-157, mixed mode, sharing)


If I downloaded the latest software via the Apple Software Update, and the Java Web site won't allow me to download anything (it always instructs you to use Apple's internal software update), how can I install/activate the latest Java?

I figured it out. When I downloaded and installed the latest Java version via Apple, it actually installed multiple versions: 1.5 for 32-bit machines, 1.5 for 64-bit machines and 1.6 for 64-bit machines.

Under Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities > Java Preferences, these multiple versions are listed in order of preference, ie, the OS will try to run one particular version first. In my case, 1.5 32-bit was listed as the default. Switching to 1.6 64-but fixed the problem.

Thanks for your help everyone.
