This is the first time trying to run on an Intel based Mac. My old G5 PowerMac kicked the bucket and I used Blender all the time on that thing. Anyways, I can’t get Blender to launch at all on this new iMac.
Running Mac OS X 10.6.8 with 4GB of RAM and a 3.2 GHz Core i3.
Tried running the app from the terminal and get this error:
[new-host:~] ryan% /Applications/Blender\ 2.55/blender.app/Contents/MacOS/blender ; exit;
found bundled python: /Applications/Blender 2.55/blender.app/Contents/MacOS/2.55/python
Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: can’t initialize sys standard streams
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/encodings/utf_8.py”, line 9, in <module>
File “/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/codecs.py”, line 16
except ImportError, why:
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
Anyone know what the problem is? Maybe I have a bad/out-of-date python installation?
