Oroborosx hangs MAC laptop - Mac Applications & Software

Hi, I am not by any means a MAC expert, I am trying to install Matlab software on a MAC running OS 10.2.1, the package needs Oroborosx? to be installed to manage XDarwin. However, Oroborosx installation -even as a stand alone, always hang the MAC. I can run XDarwin before installing Orborosx, but all freezes when i install Orborosx. Any suggestions?? Thanks in Advance. M. W....

    It's more complicated than that, see:

    If that fails, send private email and I'll send the actual text....

    Thanks for all the tips, I followed the instructions in the URL Steve
    pointed at, after creating a root account and installing OroborosX and
    Matlab,
    running it a couple of times under root, I was able to login as a user
    with administration privileges and run Matlab. Thanks a lot for all
    the help.

    Now that's odd (; The goal was not to use Oro, and my personal notes
    showed how a root account was not required (; (BTW, I didn't write the
    original text, but did add "simplifications surrounded by lines of
    *************.
     

    Add non-admin account should work as well, so there is a permission
    problem somewhere.

    Anyway, just getting it to run is non-trvial, but I assume the Matlab
    folks will repackage it for Panther and do it w/o Oro this time.
