Xcode will not launch on Powerbook
Posted on 2005-05-03
I'm using a 1.5 GHz G4 PowerPC Powerbook (512 MB RAM, OSX 10.3.9) and I've installed the developer package of Xcode from the cd. For some unknown reason, when I double click the "XCode" application (or even interface builder) the icon bounces twice, activity stops, and nothing happens. I've installed, restarted, uninstalled, restarted, re-installed, multiple times and for the life of me cannot figure out why the app won't start. I've it running on my G5 with no problem but for some reason it will not launch on the Powerbook.
On checking the console I've received this error:
dyld: /Developer/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/MacOS/Xcode truncated or malformed library: /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DevToolsRemoteClient.framework/Versions/A/DevToolsRemoteClient (file is empty)
I really have no idea what this means, as I am not a seasoned Xcode programmer.
I've also installed the latest update, 2005-005 (I believe is the number).
Thanks for any assistance.
