Immediate crash

I apologize for the n00b question but I’ve searched the forums and read the FAQs and can’t find a clear answer.

I’m trying to use Blender 2.4 on Mac OS X 10.4.3 and it just crashes immediately on launch with no error message. Do you need to have Python and/or SDL installed separately before this will even launch? The documentation mentions an installer but the OS X version has no installer, just an executable .app.

I tried running it from the command line and received this:


dyld: Library not loaded: /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.4/Python
  Referenced from: /Users/xxxx/Desktop/blender-2.40-OSX-10.3+-py2.4-powerpc/blender.app/Contents/MacOS/blender
  Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap

I’m confused because the website indicates that there’s enough Python included in the app for it to run.

It has nothing to do with Python. Maybe a corrupted download?

It’s possible, although I downloaded it twice from the Australian mirror. (The US mirror is hopelessly clogged)

Have you used another version of blender before? If so, try to rename the file .B.blend, should be somewhere in your home directory.

I’ve never used Blender before.
