CumulusMX on OSX....HELP!

Topics about the Beta trials up to Build 3043, the last build by Cumulus's founder Steve Loft. It was by this time way out of Beta but Steve wanted to keep it that way until he made a decision on his and Cumulus's future.

CumulusMX on OSX....HELP!

Post by TXRweather »

Hi guys. I have been using CumulusMX on Win7 Pro for a year and a half with no issues. When it comes to PC's, I am a whiz...BUT, I am a newby at OS X. Just picked up a Mac Mini and have spent the past 3 days getting my station connected to the Mac. I got it connected tonight and now I am getting this error: :bash:

I know there are some OS X wizzes out there that probably know what is causing these errors. Can anyone shed any light and possibly a solution?

Thanks in advance.

That is usually caused by Cumulus MX being loaded twice i.e. the socket is already in use by the Cumulus MX already running.

Thank you David for your reply. My station connected this afternoon when I got home. I thought about it this afternoon at work and while driving home, I realized last night that I had never done a complete power down on the Mini Mac last night, just a few reboots. I powered it down for about 1 minute and then rebooted the Mac. I typed in my terminal script and it came up and connected without error this time. I opened Safari and type in the local host command and it actually worked. Now I have to see if it is reporting to all my sites I send info to. Hope I don't have to repeat this learning process again!
