1) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : Problems running SETI@home under (Message 1200061)
Posted 26 Feb 2012 by Profile Dr. Clint D. Harper Project Donor
I've just installed BOINC/SETI@home on my new MacBook Pro (2.5 GHz, Intel Core i7) running the latest OS (10.7.3). When BOINC starts as the screen saver the display "pulses" every couple of seconds between the BOINC opening window and my desktop. The screen savers supplied with the OS run normally. Are any other MAC OS "Lion" users having this problem? Running BOINC on my older MacBook Pro, using system 10.6.5 had no issues.

2) Questions and Answers : Macintosh : BOINC installation failure with Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) (Message 929345)

I've just installed Mac OS 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and the OS installer generated a dialog box telling me to re-install BOINC. Unfortunately after running the latest posted download of the BOINC installer for Mac OS (6.6.36), the application fails to run correctly and an error message states that 6.6.36 is not compatible with the new OS.

Is there a workaround for this problem? Is a new Mac version of the BOINC installer under development?
