Testing Picard on OS X (Intel)

If you have an intel Mac and would like to try out the first test of a PUID enabled Picard on OS X, please download this DMG and post a comment to let me know if it works.

This DMG:

  • Is for INTEL only
  • Only runs on OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
  • Probably does not have working CD Lookup
  • Might be buggy
  • Is based on the 0.9.0 Picard tarball
  • Is NOT a Universal Binary

If this DMG works for people then I will proceed to try to get 10.4/PPC/disc lookup support working.

    Have you already fixed the DMG? I downloaded it 15 minutes ago and Picard is running beautifully (with a stylish new icon, no less!).

    PUID generation is working and I can confirm that it is generating some existing PUIDs which is a good sign.

    Woohoo! Thanks!

    It works good, only in the console the following error is coming up at my macbook
    Feb 26 08:30:14 Macintosh [0x0-0x4ea4ea].org.pythonmac.unspecified.picard[6912]: invalid new backstep 590

    Also it won’t submit puid’s to the server, give’s the error won’t authencitate.

    If you want i can mail you my console log from running picard when checking 3 cd’s?

    The tagging etc. works as in previous version, but I don’t see it generating PUID’s. Is there anything I need to do to enable that?

    Click an unmatched file (in the left panel) and then click “))) Scan”.

    Or, go to Options and check “Automatically scan all new files”.

    libffmpeg refuses to build on pcc for me right now. I’m waiting for an upstream bug to be fixed before I can proceed. 😦 Maybe next weekend.

    I threw my entire collection at it, 23K+ tracks, without any errors. Thanks for the hard work. It’s working great for me.

    Just tested this using the iTunes hints (with checking/unchecking selections). It works very well for me on the five albums on which I needed to use it.

    Thanks a lot for making this available!

    Any luck with the PPC build? It would really make a huge difference for a lot of people.

    basstony: Go to the picard download page. We now have official OSX 10.4 builds!
