I can not get Mandelbulber 1.08 to run on my macbook pro osx 10.5.8. It says it installs but when I run terminal, this is what it says...

  Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap

[Process completed]

I have also tried running by clicking on the mandelbulber itself with no success... What the heck am I not doing or doing wrong???

now you can't fail! just follow me   grin

unzip somewhere, find 'install' file and open it with terminal ('Applications/utilities/terminal')

 "Do you want to install mandelbulber in 32 or 64 bit mode? [32/64]"

is asked, type '32' or '64' and press <enter>
 your password is asked: type it and press <enter>

You find your password HERE:

From the Apple menu choose System Preferences.
From the View menu choose Accounts.
Click the lock button if it appears locked; enter the administrator password.

to open mandelbulber type 'mandelbulber' inside terminal and press <enter>

if mandelbulber does not start download and install latest XQuartz (http://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac/wiki/X112.6.3) now before you open mandelbulber just open XQuartz app (just click on 'Applications/utilities/Xquartz')

Hope it is useful

Thanks, I will try your way... The only difference I see is I didn't open the install file in terminal... Although it said it installed it must not have installed completely! I will let you know... I did install the newest version of X11, so that part is done...

Hi Visual...

Well, found my problem if anyone else is having the same trouble... When they say "Need Password"... They mean "NEED PASSWORD!"... I have never in 30+ years of computing ever put a password on my computers... Just don't believe in it... So I went and put a password on the Admin account for my Mac and presto everything installed correctly... Funny thing is, it installed great on my other 2 Windows machines without a password on the Admin accounts (1 a Win 7 64 bit and the other a Vista 32 bit machine)... Anyway problem solved, now to the learning... wink
