How to solve Architecture errors - 04-07-2009, 04:05 PM
i posted a question regarding architecture errors on certain apps in osx on the mini. Well last night I got a bad one and system preferences would'nt open. well if you get these messages the only way to get the app to work again that I have found is to reinstall that app. Itunes gave me this error for example and I did a reinstall from apple.com and it works fine. But some apps like system preferences you cant just download and reinstall because they are only found in the leopard install disc. So what you have to do is run the program called pacifist on another mac, insert the install dvd and let it open up all the app install packages for osx. You than have to select the system preferences (for my case) and select to install it on a jump drive. After deleting system preferences on the mini you transfer the newly installed app on the jump drive to the mini and everything worked.. Just thought I would share since I panicked for a few minutes last night.
pacifist download can be found here http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12743
pm me if anyone has any questions
