10.4: Another fix for non-launching PowerPC apps on Intel
Authored by: smeger on Aug 28, '06 04:01:24AM

Unsanity ShapeShifter guy here. This issue is caused by a bug in OS X, but using APE-based haxies can greatly increase the frequency with which this bug is triggered, depending on which haxie is used. To repeat - this bug can occur without APE installed, but is more likely to occur with APE installed. And, unfortunately, the APE Exclude list doesn't help.

The "sudo killall translated" terminal command is a valid work-around, but, of course, it's a pain to run that before every Rosetta launch.

We are hard at work on a fix to APE to get the situation to the point that we're not exacerbating the issue. But currently, the situation I described above is the deal.

This info is current as of APE version 2.0.2b1. Any version newer than that will almost certainly include a fix for this.
