Crashes on Intel Macs

beaTunes LogoUnfortunately, some of you Intel Mac users have experienced crashes of beaTunes. This is caused by a bug in Apple's implementation of the Java server VM. Here's how you switch to the client VM, which does not seem to have this bug:

  • Ctrl-click on the application icon
  • Select "Show package contents"
  • Open the Contents Folder
  • Open the file Info.plist with some text editor (e.g. TextEdit)
  • Close to the end of the file you will find a line that has "server" in it
  • Replace "server" with "client"
  • Save the file
  • Restart beaTunes

We will make the client VM the default VM in the next update release to avoid this issue altogether. In the mean time, if you are a member of the ADC, please feel free to file bug reports with Apple. The Java crash logs can be found in ~/Library/Logs/Java.
