just can’t start BitSquare on Mac OS X 10.12
The application shut down immediately after getting to dock and I get the message to ignore or to reopen.
What could be the issue?
Restart of ma, re-downloading and re-installing - nothing help.
P.S. Maybe this can help:

Is your Mac older than 2012 Mac? If so, then you may be having the issue that many have as Apple changed the architecture, solder Macs have this issue
@s3v3nh4cks: Can you add more details? He has OSX, so no Classic. But not sure if the CPU architecture might be the old Motorola maybe? But I assume that would not be supported with OSX.
At least its it the first time I hear about that issue so it seems to be a system specific thing. Maybe you can post your system specs (find it at “about this mac”)
Hello, it’s not an old Mac, not actual model, but it’s not old:

Is it possible, that it just don’t start because it’s on VM?
I don’t think it has to do with hardware or something, but can’t get it what’s going wrong. Already installed newest Java update, but it hasn’t help(
no clue if it helps -this is the report of program crash (first part of it):

Maybe its related to being as VM. I never managed to setup OSX on a VM, so zero experience. With Linux VMs are no issues.
I’m not sure and I don’t think so, in fact I know this issue already. Few months ago, as I tried to install the BitSquare for the first time on different and not VM Mac, I was confronted with same issue. On the other Mac was no problem.
Since 2012, OSX apple has made some updates to their architecture which can prevent certain Mac’s (Hardware) from running the application. Also, it can be very dependent on which version OS you binary was compiled on.
Gitian is a way around this, as everything is built on linux, and thus far seems to be an agnostic means of compiling the binaries
Running OSX in a VM can be very flakey, as you are trying to emulate some hardware that you don’t have direct access to. You would do much better running a Ubuntu 14.04.5 vm
Maybe you can try to run from source code?
That would probably be the best way, do you have a list of dependencies he needs to install first? or are you on APT?
Thank you very much, guys!
I will report which option will help!
