    Softly Killing
    A few of my apps have started to not start. They are launched and their icon appears for a split second in the dock before fading away. No error message. I don't recall making any major change, nothing irregular. Here's a non-comprehensive list of broken apps in case you see something they have in common. Eg, no Adobe software works but all Apple software does.

    Adobe Creative Suite
    VNCViewer
    NXClient
    Folding@Home
    Fugu
    TextForge
    Tomato Torrent
    BitTorrent
    Google Earth

    What does work

    All Apple software
    Firefox
    Skype
    Opera
    Transmission
    Quick Silver

    er... looks like all the Universal apps are working and the PPC specific apps are not... as a first glance. Are you have an Intel or PPC CPU? Your sig says MacBook so I assume Intel. Is this a Rosetta problem?

    Yes! They are all PPC apps. How do I run them with Rosetta? I know you're supposed to set it in the info window, but I don't see the checkbox. That might just be part of the problem. The console output is, for Folding@home for example,

    dyld: Library not loaded: /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework/Versions/A/OpenGL
    Referenced from: /Applications/Productivity/Folding@home.app/Contents/MacOS/Folding@home
    Reason: no suitable image found. Did find:
    /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework/Versions/A/OpenGL: mach-o, but wrong architecture
    /System/Library/Frameworks/OpenGL.framework/Versions/A/OpenGL: mach-o, but wrong architecture

    I am at work now and cannot visualise how to do this. I'll reply later unless someone sorts it before then.
