Fetch Freeze/Crash (11 posts)

    On an Intel Mac running 10.4.11, Fetch (latest version) will freeze/crash sometimes - force quit, etc. doesn't work. The only solution is to restart the computer. No other programs or functions are affected.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Is there any pattern to what Fetch is doing, or what you are trying to do, when it freezes?

    Thanks,

    Doesn't seem to matter. It happens in the course of normal usage. When it happened this time, it was when it was getting a directory/file list from a site. Happily, I have a copy of 5.2.1, and that seems to work fine...

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    Could you mail your Fetch.crash.log to us so we can try to figure out what the problem is?

    To find the Fetch.crash.log file:

    * Choose "Home" from the Go menu in the Finder
    * Open the Library folder
    * Open the Logs folder
    * Open the CrashReporter folder
    * Look for the file named "Fetch.crash.log"

    Please send it to:

    bugs at fetchsoftworks dot com

    along with a short description of the problem and we'll take a look.

    If you don't have a Fetch.crash.log, let us know.

    Thanks,

    No current log - the one where you describe is from 2005...

    Hi,

    Hmm. When Fetch freezes, can you run other programs?

    If so, could you please do the following?

    Once Fetch starts freezes and/or shows the rainbow cursor:

    1) Run Activity Monitor (in the Utilities folder inside the Applications folder)
    2) Choose Window > Activity Monitor
    3) Find Fetch in the list of processes (you can type Fetch into the "Filter" field to show only Fetch)
    4) Select the Fetch entry, and click the Inspect button
    5) In the new window that appears, click the Sample button
    6) Click Save... to save the sample
    7) Send the saved file, along with a short description of your problem, to us at: bugs at fetchsoftworks.com

    Thanks,

    Next time Fetch crashes, I will try to do this.

    It does not happen all the time. When it does happen, yes, I can run other programs just fine.

    Thanks.

    Hi Ed,

    Okay, thanks - keep us posted! Once we have a sample, we'll try to figure out why the freeze is happening.

    Best,
