This very strange I just moved a relatively simple RFID project from my Macbook Pro (Lion 10.7.3) to a new Mac Mini (Lion 10.7.3) supplied by my client; this new machine just has my AS3 Phidgets RFID app an all the associated media installed, as it is purely for use for this project.
Initially everything runs super smoothly; install and start the Phidgets 2.1 web service; copy Flash App (created in CS5.5) all the latest AS3 phidgets library and the associated media files - at this point everything runs absolutely fine!
Then I add the Flash app to the start up items (mac sys prefs), I do this for all my installations to allow the client a simple on/off option just in case of crashes and for daily easy of use. I then restart mac to test, at this point the Phidgets RFID device fails to appear in bonjour tab on the phidgets sys pref, although the device is attached in sys prefs; when double clicked in general tab, the LED and Antenna enable fine. I assume that it not visible as phidget web service attached device in the bonjour tab then my Flash app will never be able to connect?
Numerous restarts later, removing the Flash app from start up items, disabling the automatic start option and manually restarting the web service also fails after even more restarts. I have used the same RFID board and procedure and files on MacBook Pro and it still all works fine, I also tried different RFID boards on the Mac Mini; those also fail; NOTE phidget web service attached device is still missing in Bonjour tab in the sys prefs on Mac Mini.
I assuming something is proper crashing Bonjour or the Phidget web service on the Mac Mini; as the mac mini is clean and just used for this project I did cmd+R reinstall of OSX and tested again, 2 hours later…
.. I have the same situation; very strange that this happens only on the new mac mini and not my Macbook pro; both machine are running the same version of Lion and very similar specs.
I have attached the crash report from my mac console, if that helps?
Your help this issue would be very much appreciated.
