Podfarm for Ilok crash after install
by kevin9739 on 2011-12-13 21:46:24


I am having problems running Podfarm 2.51 on a brand new Imac. I previously had problems with a Mac tower before I got this new one, but at the time was still largely working off of PC, so I didn't mention it. Now however, this new Imac is my new recording system, and I see Podfarm still seems to crash upon starting it.

What happens exactly is:

I start Podfarm for the first time after installing for Ilok device, having loaded the Ilok drivers… No tones show up in podfarm after this fresh install: Then when I try to do anything or locate my presets, it crashes. I did have this running at one time on a PC laptop with Windows 7 ironically, but not on Mac successfully... Now theres a switch

Is there anything I should still try to do, or is this a bug issue with Ilok??

Here is an excerpt of the error report...

I am not familiar with this issue but it looks like you my have a corrupt installation. Try this:

  • Throw away all versions of POD Farm 1 or 2 applications to the trash from the Applications/Line6 folder.
  • Manually search in the following locations and delete any of the files found from within each of these folders:

Library/Audio/MIDI Drivers
Library/Frameworks (look for L6WXTG and L6WXTY.framework and delete them)
Library/Application Support/Line 6
Library/Application Support/Digidesign/Plug-Ins
User/Library/Application Support/Line 6
Applications/Line 6
User/Documents/Line 6
User/Library/Preferences (Line6 preferences, should be something like com.line6.xxxxx, etc. Delete.)

    • Empty the Trash.
    • Next, go into Applications/Utilities and launch the Terminal application and type the following commands at the prompt:
      • cd // (then press the enter key)
      • cd /private/var/db/receipts (then press the enter key)
      • sudo rm -i com.line6* (then press the enter key)
      • Enter your Mac OSX account password. Note: you will NOT see the cursor acknowledge any characters being input; you will need to type your system password correctly and hit "Enter"!
      • Type Yes to every option/question to remove Line 6 software components (there will be a good number of confirmations, FYI).
    • Download and install POD Farm 2.51 from the Line 6 website.

Let us know if it works.

I think another thing to double-check is the permissions settings on a folder (we've started noticing this with the new Lion OSX releast), specifically here: Mac HD/[Your Mac OSX User Account Name]/Library/Application Support/

There should be a Line 6 folder inside that folder. If you Control+Click (or if you have a 2-button mouse, right-click) over the folder, do a "Get Info" and expand the Permissions field (at the very bottom of the list). Is this folder permission set to "Read Only"? If so, change it to "Read And Write", please.

Then, restart your Mac. When it's back up and running re-test. Did this help at all?
