Bug Description

I just downloaded SubDownloader for Mac OSX version

When I try to launch SubDownloader on Mac OSX 10.6.1, it just closes immediately.

In console the following is registered:

30/09/09 12.26.51 [0x0-0x186186].org.ivanfernandezcalvo.SubDownloader[1157] base: /Applications/
30/09/09 12.26.51 [0x0-0x186186].org.ivanfernandezcalvo.SubDownloader[1157] CWD: /Applications/

Any fixes?

The problem is the new default version of Python on Mac OS X 10.6 is 2.6.
You can try to fix this by setting the default version to 2.5 by using this command in the terminal :

defaults write Version 2.5

Take it back to 2.6 version by using this one if you need to :

defaults write Version 2.6

It should work now as it used to.

The new Mac OS X now works fine or you changed the default python version ?

The new bundle have the Python 2.5 inside, and run over this version. I detect a little bug if you have macports installed a PyQT 4.6 libraries installed in it, the bundle try to run this libraries and break. This bug is resolved in this version.
