I downloaded this to replace the previous version 5 that I was running... problem is that I cannot get version 6 to open, much less run, at all on my pb12. Even worse, I trashed my version 5 from the computer before I transfered the version 6 into the applications folder. Wish I had kept the old version 5 around.

Automatically quits itself when I instruct it to begin processing from the first client (I have two clients since I'm on a dual processor machine). I've tried trashing the prefs a few times, but it still crashes every time.
It looks like it'd be a good SETI utility to have...if it worked. :/

There seems to be some kind of bug in 6.0 that refuses to launch the second copy of the client on my dual 1 GHz MDD.

I tried trashing the SETI Menu preferences, but no dice.

It appears SETI Menu 6.0 has a bug in it regarding setting up a second SETI process. On my dual 2GHz G5, I can point SETI Menu 6.0 to my second setiathome folder, but the setting doesn't "take".

Actually, looking in the plist file shows it does take, but the menu item itself and the preferences seem to reset, making the "second client" results and preferences identical to the first.

Seems like a buggy point 0 release.

I've used this for weeks on my dual 800 g4 and it works fine. It's an excellent piece of software and pretty handy if you care about the seti program and your own contributions to it.

However, I installed it last night on an older dual 450 mhz G4 running panther and I've never seen anything like the problems it caused. It started out just fine and I left the computer on all night. When I got up this morning, I restarted the computer. It came up in unix with messages about the etc/master.passwd file and etc/profile not existing. It will no longer boot into os x. I'm left with a disabled unix system running sh, mach_init, init, and kernal_tas. I can't do anything because half of the commands I try to run give me messages like "who: var/run/utmp: Not a directory", "etc/master.paswd: Not a directory" or "uid 0 does not exist in the passwd file!" The private/etc files are all there and there's an "etc" file in / containing "private/etc" but for some reason the system won't recognize any of it.

So I booted into os 9 with a norton systemworks disc and my hard disk only had a couple of kilobytes on it. Turned out I had gigabytes of console log files. I deleted these... Also, even though setiathome had been running from it's own folder my user directory was populated with all the stardard setiathome files. I have no idea what the hell is going on but this is bordering on virus territory. If anyone has any suggestions, please help me out. my e-mail is blackice_101@mac.com.

and if you've got an older dual DON"T USE THIS SOFTWARE!!!

Dual 450Mhz G4
