Trouble installing GPSbabel on a late 2006 iMac

Doug's Family
Please Help.  I am having trouble installing GPSbabel on my "late 2006" iMac.  I downloaded the program from GPSBabel-1.5.3 from https://www.gpsbabel.org/download.html.  When I drag GPSBabel onto ZipDevil on the Doc, I get an error message that reads "Operation Failed with Error code 2".  I am running OSX 10.7.5 with a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor.  If I double click on the program icon, I get a message that "GPSBabelFE quit unexpectedly" and that a report will be sent to Apple automatically.  This program looks terrific and is exactly what I need to  make routes on my National Geographic Topo program and then use them on my late model Garmin GPS.  Thanks for your help with this.

Back to the list so perhaps another Mac user can see what I'm not seeing.

Mac-using Babel-heads: can any of you confirm success with 1.5.3 on 10.7.5, especially on a Core 2 Duo ?



Sounds like you've made it through GateKeeper because we're actually starting to run.

Our minimum OS/X compat level this version is 10.7.  My download logs show scores of people still on 10.7 and over 50 on 10.7.5 specifically. We have scores on 10.6, too (below that, the numbers just fall to noise) and we haven't had complaints so while I don't have a 10.7 box, I don't THINK that's the key or we'd have reports by now.

It's a SIGSEGV, not a SIGILL, so it's not like there's some new opcode being used that Core 2 doesn't understand.

Let's take a step back. Is it possible this is just a bad download?  Given that we're a compressed dmg, I'd think if we were truncated or something, we wouldn't get this far, but let's verify.

Please download it again and let's hope that you just got a bad download that was interrupted or scrambled by Zipdevil or something.

Thanks for your quick response.

I have also tried to launch the .dmg from the Finder, both on the desktop and from the Application folder.

I do not get the unknown developed message, just a "App downloaded from the Internet - do you want to launch it?"

I get a report that it Failed to Load with this as part of a longer message, if it means anything to you...

Any other ideas???

That combination should work, but it wouldn't surprise me if you're the first to use that exact combination. It's the "core solo" processors that won't run 64-bit apps.  I don't know what zipdevil is, but we ship as a mac dmg. You should be able to open it right in finder, which will mount the dmg as a volume and launch it from the icon there or drag into your apps as expected.

The only thing that's a little kinky on later versions of OS/X is that we're not a signed app. This means you have to tell Gatekeeper that you really DO want to run us.

We're an "unidentified developer" because being identified doesn't actually make the program any better or safer, it just generates $99/year for Apple.
