Pallet crashes upon start on 10.5

Description

I have Leopard 10.5.8. Pallet crashes in two different ways: 1) It first asks for the Tcl location and then crashes after I select; 2) It crashes right after it starts without asking for the location.

What version of Pallet? Is it installed using the Pallet port, or some other means?

I used to see the same problem, but the Pallet port version 1.1 no longer has this problem for me.

I had the same problem like the OP. After having uninstalled Pallet and installed the port version 1.1 the situation has changed a bit: Pallet asks for Tcl path as known at startup, but it doesn't crash anymore after having simply left the dialog box with the red window button. On my file system, Tcl is only under /System/Library. Using this path in the question dialog box leads to an error "You selected an invalid directory: You have to use the directory where macports1.0 was installed by MacPorts. Generally it should be /Library/Tcl". When I quit Pallet, a error window pops up telling that Pallet was closed unexpectedly. Creating a symbolic link to /System/Library/Tcl in /Library doesn't change anything. Maybe the reason is that Pallet was tested only with MacPorts 1.8, as shown in the dialog box.

@habmalnefrage: Great, so you were able to resolve the crash by updating to 1.1, and now merely need to tell Pallet where the Tcl directory is. Per comment:ticket:27911:1 that's now /opt/local/share/macports/Tcl.

I believe the note about MacPorts 1.8 was meant to indicate that Pallet requires *at least* MacPorts 1.8. That message was added to Pallet in r53683 in July 2009, a month before the first beta version of MacPorts 1.8 was released in r55261 in August, so it was meant to discourage people from trying to use it with MacPorts 1.7. We could probably remove references to the MacPorts version from Pallet now entirely.

@kvaleras: Does updating to 1.1 also fix the crash for you, as it did for me and habmalnefrage?

I am not able to install the 1.1 via port, get an error message.

And what error message is that? Can you attach the main.log file?

Thanks, this helped me! Why does Pallet ask me for my password, when I quit the application?

Replying to habmalnefrage@…:

Why does Pallet ask me for my password, when I quit the application?

I don't know, but I filed #27103 about it.
