In Terminal, run "xattr -rc /Volumes/Application.app", that should fix it (naturally, replace "/Volumes/Application.app" with your actual application path. No need to disable GateKeeper.

This seems to be a problem with permissions in the bundle itself. Usually the execution flag doesn't get carried over from the DMG image. Try, for the sake of curiosity to set the execution flag like this: chmod +x /Applications/RubyMine.app/Contents/MacOS/<name of the app> Note: replace <name of the app> with the name of the app (it will ...

Once you start experiencing the issue, hold down the 4 control keys and then press the period "." key. shift+control+option+command+.

A BSOD is the equivalent of kernel panic in unix and unix-like OSes. From the wiki article: In Unix-based operating systems, a similar term is kernel panic. That said, I've seen the following image two times over the past 3-4 years. This is a kernel panic screen, as described in this support article.

The root of the cause Time Machine backups are protected at kernel level -- on a verbose boot it's possible to spot in the first screenful of text a TMSafetyNet.kext extension being loaded. This ensures the integrity of your backups. Access control provisions are applied via a kernel extension located at /System/Library/Extensions/TMSafetyNet.kext ...

From your screenshots, it looks like you had a kernel panic. A kernel panic is an action which an OS takes due to a fatal error. More info on Wikipedia about kernel panics. From Apple's support doc about kernel panics: In most cases, kernel panics are not caused by an issue with your Mac. They are most likely caused by an issue external to your Mac. If ...

I use Alfred, a utility similar to Quicksilver. I had previously configured it to search /Volumes/Storage for apps, but never told it to stop trying to index that volume once I migrated to the new machine. I removed the /Volumes/Storage entry from Alfred's list of directories to index, and now the console messages have stopped.

I have received the same "[Application] is damaged and can’t be opened." error when trying to run unsigned applications in Mountain Lion. Notably Davmail. Try the "Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere" setting in the "Security & Privacy" System Preferences pane : For whatever reason you may be running an old, unsigned version of the app.

I was experiencing the same problem: unable to purchase or update any items from the App Store, with an error code (13). I came across another thread here - Cannot Install or Update Apps in App Store - Error 13 app-store-error-13 - which basically suggests deleting a cookie-preferences file for the App Store. I tried it, and it indeed worked for me. The ...

Generate a system report (in Lion: About this Mac-> More Info -> System Report, or do a Spotlight search for System Information if you allow Spotlight to index applications.) Click on USB; then look for the bus ID mentioned. Under that bus, look through the Location IDs of each device; this field is "Addr" in the error logs. Note that location IDs are ...

.zshrc is a file run when you start an interactive zsh shell, found in your home directory. The error message says you have an export command which is written incorrectly on line 48. not valid in this context means you're trying to export something that's not a variable. It looks like you're trying to add stuff to your PATH, but are substituting the current ...

Looks like a kernel panic in Verbose mode.

It's an old-style kernel panic report. When the kernel crashes, there's no way to log what happened ('cause logging requires a working filesystem, which is part of the kernel...), so OS X used to dump the crash info onto the screen buffer. In OS X v10.2, they switched to a system where it stores the crash info into PRAM, and displays a message that "You ...

It could be a corrupt USB kernel extension. I'd try booting to Safe Mode: Turn off your Mac. Turn it back on and before you see the Apple logo on your screen, press and hold the Shift key until the Apple logo appears. A progress bar should appear below the Apple logo - during this time your Mac is performing a directory check and loads only necessary ...

The error occurs when an application using Python symbol mappings in Mac OS X is not able to connect to a (previously) networked drive, Time Machine, Bonjour, shared or remote drives, etc. (nwnode). It's a depreciated method, which mostly is why Lion displays the error. Even if you don't use Time Machine, this error can occur, either from an os upgrade or ...

According to Apple's official documentation, it is by design that shell scripts invoked from AppleScript's do shell script action do not inherit the $PATH variable from your login shell's environment. Accordingly, Apple instructs users to use full paths to commands when invoking shell scripts from AppleScript rather than relying on the $PATH variable in ...

Most of the time, this means there is something wrong with you creditcard information. So do as told and contact iTunes to get rid of the message. With no screenshot or further information, it's hard for us to provide a solution.

I wasn't able to get my network back by disabling and re-enabling TCP/IP or the Wi-Fi. It seems in my case the computer had gone to sleep with a Juniper VPN connection and when it woke back up the connection had timed out and the routes weren't cleaned up. For me, I had two computers, one working and one not, and so was able to identify the problem after ...

Your problems are entirely on Apple's end. The message indicates that Apple no longer signing that version of software. Yesterday, the code signing servers would sign the iOS 6 package you had downloaded on your Mac and let the device install that version of the OS. Today, Apple is no longer signing that version of the software for that device. I don't ...

Try starting up from the recovery partition (by holding command-R), in single user mode (by holding command-S), in safe mode (by holding shift), or in Internet recovery mode (by holding option-command-R). If you already have backups and you can start up from the recovery partition or in Internet recovery mode, try choosing the Reinstall OS X option. It ...

This should be fairly easy to track down with the sysdiagnose tool. When you get a browser wedged and spitting errors, open terminal and add the browser name as an argument to the script: (so if Safari is crashing) sysdiagnose Safari This tool will call sudo which needs you to type your password (it won't show to the screen, so type it slowly if you are ...

This is neither a RAM nor a disk related probem. This is a kernel problem due to a misbehaviour of one of your network interfaces. Here are a few commands to start locate the origin of this probem when it occurs: netstat -mm will provide a detailled information about your buffers pool usage; netstat -I en0 if your actual network interface in use is en0 ...

There are various google results for ejecting volumes on sleep, which should solve this problem. First, write yourself a shell script to eject the volume. You could avoid setuid bits by using apple script. #!/usr/bin/osascript tell application "Finder" to eject (disks where name = "VOLUME") Next, install the SleepWatcher tool and configure ~/.sleep or ...

According to this thread at Apple, this is a bug. This means it will hopefully be fixed in a coming update to OS X. In the meantime, you have to relaunch the Finder, which you can do either through force quit (⎇⌘⎋, or through the  menu), or by less violent means by quitting it normally, which you must first activate through the following command issued in ...

Get into DFU mode and do a restore in iTunes. For DFU mode: Turn the iPhone off (not needed in this case :) Push the sleep button for 3 seconds (Apple logo should appear) Push both buttons for 10 seconds (Apple logo should disappear) Release the sleep/wake button and hold the home button for at least 15 seconds. Nothing will show up on the screen, but ...
