I am trying to help a friend by phone to install PD on her
mac but I am unfimilar with OsX.
I directed her to:
and she dragged the dmg to the desktop and nothing happened so
she clicked on it and there was no .app file. She dragged the
pd-0.39test2-extended-rc0 file (no .app file extension) into the
applications folder on her HD.
When she did this and doubble clicked on it it launched, the
menubar at the top of the screen indicated that pd was open(ing)
but when she moused over the menu->file dropdown it would give
her the osX spinning colorwheel thinking icon. She had to force
PD to quit as regular quit would not respond.
I tried to direct her to where the logfiles would be in
linux-land but there was no /var/log/messages.

Q1: Where are the osX system logfiles kept?
Q2: How do we get PD installed on osX?

Thanks y\'all!
