Hi. I downloaded the 32 bit version for my 32 bit Intel iMac, but when I try to launch the program it says there is a problem and it will not open. “Check with the developer to make sure Ardour6 works with this version of MacOSX.” I would try an older version but those are not available, so I am stuck.
What is the precise message (all of it) ?
Found (and understood) the issue.
Until we can fix this, you can use the debug version from https://nightly.ardour.org/ that will run.
The problem is that we strip
libplds4.dylib when packaging the optimized build. This leads to
dyld: Symbol not found: _PL_CompareValues Referenced from: /Volumes/Ardour-6.5.86/Ardour6.app/Contents/MacOS/../lib/libnssutil3.dylib Expected in: /Volumes/Ardour-6.5.86/Ardour6.app/Contents/MacOS/../lib/libplds4.dylib in /Volumes/Ardour-6.5.86/Ardour6.app/Contents/MacOS/../lib/libnssutil3.dylib
Oddly enough only the 32bit build is affected by this.
@bwoods You can get a fixed version of Ardour 6 for 32bit Intel Mac here:
I’m sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for bringing this issue to our attention.
