10.6: Run 32-bit screen savers in the background in 10.6
Authored by: Ynot on May 07, '10 01:00:17PM

Can someone help me out with this hint? Where do I enter the code above? In Terminal? I tried it and it does not work for me.

Thanks

I noticed as well that V.K.'s solution doesn't work. Here's a fixed version:

$ sudo bash
Password:
$ cd /System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Versions/A/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/
$ mv ScreenSaverEngine ScreenSaverEngine-executable
$ cat > ScreenSaverEngine
#!/bin/sh
arch -i386 /System/Library/Frameworks/ScreenSaver.framework/Versions/A/Resources/ScreenSaverEngine.app/Contents/MacOS/ScreenSaverEngine-executable
^d
$ chmod 755 ScreenSaverEngine
$ ^d

Note that bold text is what you'll type and ^d is code for “control-D”. Best of luck!
