    I have written a piece of software, iNfo, that assembles & gathers system info, in Cocoa. It isn't so extensive currently, but I am looking to expand it (as well as offer some of the functionality as dynamic libraries, currently libSysCtl, libFreeSpace, libSystem and libVelocity ;))

    EDIT: I have released a new version with new functionality:

    It works but there are a few bugs.

    It has issues with character encoding for me.

    Did it reveal the CPU to be a PowerPC G3? :)

    The new version you just submitted to MR crashes as soon as I click "Generate Report".

    iMac G5, 10.3.7.

    Okay, does it crash with any message? Can you try opening the binary package (right-click, show package contents), executing the actual binary in Contents/MacOS/ (named iNfo), to see where the application fails? It will produce some messages in a Terminal.app instance, which would be very helpful for me in determining, what the problem is :)

    Crashes when I click Generate Report. G4 MDD FW800, 10.3.7.

    The following is a general rant that applies to many people:
    Also, as a reminder "Could you please test this?" As a thread title doesn't give much clues about what you want tested. At the very leasy include the name of the software you want tested. This way if I need to go back to the thread, I don't have to remember what odd title it had, I can just scan the thread list and look for the Application name.

    Do you have X11/Developer tools installed on those machines? I suspect that if they aren't installed, the program could crash (it attempts to detect the install of them)

    I have removed the detection of X11/XCode. I might as well rip out my hair if it doesnt work after this.

    Aaah :D :D

    A buffer overflow in the file opening procedure of files that don't exist :D Now, brace for a final test version, I just want to check which methods, I previously left out, that are sane to use :)
