Hi has anyone else had Toast crash on their Mac? I am running the latest version of Leopard.
I downloaded a new version and installed it and it crashes too.
Could be a Leopard bug?

While I am at it here are some other problems i am having.

Can't connect to iTunes Store.
Can't see my emails in Mail.
Can't read text messages in Skype.

Now toast isn't working... bloody hell!!!

That's a lot of problems.

Toast has never crashed on me. Check your internet connection?

I think his internet connection is working, hence his post here ;)
As Huy said, that is a lot of problems, and quite severe ones. I suggest either a complete clean install of Leopard or at least and archive and install.
Before you do that however, try creating a new use and see if the problems persist.

I'd boot up from your install DVD and run Disk Utility over the machine, as it sounds like something more serious if more than one program isn't working.

Also, find the crash log in /Users/yourusername/Library/Logs/CrashReporter and post it to the internet somewhere where we can have a look at it. Might just be an old piece of software or a corrupt font screwing things up. The latter will send programs haywire.

I recently had a problem with Toast crashing. Moving the file DivX Encoder.component in /Library/Quicktime to another location solved the problem. From Googling, the DivX component also seems to cause a number of other apps to crash.

Although, in your case given the unconnected nature of the apps that are crashing an archive and install sounds like the best option.

You've posted the Mail app problem before, Muzza, yet never answered to the suggestions made.

Backup your drive and Clean Install from scratch. It's a bastard task, yet it ensures you start from a clean slate.

Hi thanks for this tip - Toast worked straight away as soon as I removed the DivX component form my quicktime Libary.

Excellent!!!! :thumbup: :)

You posted that the mail problem was solved 10 days prior to starting this thread in this thread here (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/showthread.php?t=43077). :confused:

And once again, here (http://forums.mactalk.com.au/showthread.php?t=43499).

Tis not necessary to create whole new threads on the same problem(s), yet to continue within the thread you began, Muzza.

cheers,

Yeah sorry - I think I have had so many probs that I am getting my threads muddled up.

But I should try to be more clear in the future.

Do you have perian installed? the release notes for the new version (1.1) say that there is a fix for toast crashing.
