post-install directions for myhack+edp are insufficient

If I follow these steps:

 

"Download our Install EDP.app, from our download page. Run the app from the Install EDP.dmg, it will run all tasks automatically. After installation, it will popup our EDP script. Type your password, then you should see the EDP menu."

 

I always get this result after running the Install EDP program:

 

"No matching processes were found PHP 5.4.12 Development Server started at Tue Mar 5 18:05:25 2013 Listening on http://0.0.0.0:11250 Document root is /Extra/bin/html Press Ctrl-C to quit. The application cannot be opened because it has an incorrect executable format. logout [Process completed]"

 

Some step has been omitted from the post-install directions, it would seem.

 

Aside from the failure of post-install, the previous steps for installation work OK. Hardware is Inspiron E1705 GMA 950, 2 gig RAM, and newly-acquired Dell 1505 Broadcom wifi, which is recognized immediately by OSX. Using bootpack for Dell D620. Starting from 10.6.0. But post-install steps also fail if I apply combo update 10.6.8. The combo update also installs and boots without issue. But without being able to run the post-install steps, things like sound and sleep don't work.

 

This is a fresh install. (I could swear I got through the post install stage OK a few weeks ago using a wifi dongle. Wired ethernet has never worked, so I have been dependent on wifi.) BTW I have fresh installed the OS MANY times to try to make this work. Please help! Thank you.

 

The only other relevant info that I can think of is that I created my myhack+edp usb stick about 3 weeks ago, but am trying to complete post-install now. If this is an issue, then the formal instructions should say so, IMHO.

What do you get if you tick this in, in Safari? 

http://0.0.0.0:11250/index.php
 

 

(first open EDP app from /Applications and tick in your password. The EDP webserver should start then).

I'll have to do a total fresh reinstall to give you the "virgin" message, but the message I get after repairing my 10.6.0 install using myhack and myfix from my usb stick  (after trying to run EDP unsucessfully the first time from my boot drive) is

 

Dialog Box: EDP

Can't get  class docf "edptool.command" of class cfol "Extra" of class sdsk of application Finder.

 

This when I run EDP app from /Applications.

 

I'll go ahead and do yet another fresh install so I can give you the "virgin" report.  But it takes about 40 minutes.

 

Just FYI, if I run the Safari command right now, it obviously won't work and I get message: Safari can't connect to the server.

 

BTW, should I be upgrading to 10.6.8 (an additional 20 minutes) before messing with Install.EDP ?  It's possible that the latest version can't support 10.6.0.

After fresh virgin install of 10.6.0, launching EDP app and entering password generates the message I reported above in first post:

 

"No matching processes were found PHP 5.4.12 Development Server started at Tue Mar 5 18:05:25 2013 Listening on http://0.0.0.0:11250 Document root is /Extra/bin/html Press Ctrl-C to quit. The application cannot be opened because it has an incorrect executable format. logout [Process completed]"

 

Ticking in the link in Safari generates the error: Safari can't connect to server "0.0.0.0".

 

This exercise also leaves the computer in an unbootable condition, until I run myhack and myfix from usb install stick.

 

Which gets me back to my original bug report that the directions on the osxlatitude.com website are insufficient for post-install.  There is clearly something else that is supposed to be done -- even if it is just the info that some later combo install of Snow Leopard (but which one?) is needed for 10.6.0 installers, before running Install EDP.

 

(I'm now wondering if my initial "newbie" success at running Install EDP several weeks ago was due to there being a link present at that time to an older version.)

What if you open /Extra/edptool.command manually. After that go to http://0.0.0.0:11250/index.php

If that don't works, please make a screenshot of EDPtool output and Safari.

 

It looks like not all files are getting downloaded from SVN..

 

I've notified Leon about this, he will have a look soon!

 

I've attached a screen shot of error message from EDPtool and of Safari "loading" wheel spinning (still spinning after 30 minutes) on that URL.

Hi,

 

Sorry to hear that you are having problems.

 

Please reinstall EDP - i made some changes that should fix the launch problems of EDP tool.

 

Leon, thanks for looking at this.  Since my last post I went ahead and applied 10.6.8 combo.  Still no go with latest re-installed EDP.

 

Should I go back and do a fresh install of 10.6.0 ?  And then try your changes?

 

And when you say "reinstall EDP", do you mean run the "Install EDP" program that is downloaded as part of the post-install protocol?

I mean, download the EDP installer.dmg and install EDP again.

 

Also, when you want to launch EDP, use edptool.command in /Extra

Thanks!  That is what I understood.

 

For best test of your changes, should I do clean install of 10.6.0 ?
