    Hey guys,

    Last month, I took the leap from 10.5 to 10.6 on a whim while shopping at the local Apple Store.

    Prior to installation, I made sure to backup my computer using Time Machine (several copies) and updated all pertinent software. I even made sure to repair/verify disks.

    Installation went fairly smoothly with the exception of recovering my Itunes music library (which I eventually figured out).

    Herein lies the issue. Since upgrading to Snow Leopard, I have a /library as well as a /library(from old mac). I'm not sure if this is pertinent to my current issue. There are a handful of apps that I simply cannot run anymore. I checked if these were compatible for 10.6 and apparent they are.

    Ventrilo is a commonly used program which I can now only open via Terminal. With today's release of Steam, I downloaded the client only to see no response whatsoever when I click on it. After opening it with Terminal, I see the following txt:

    logout

    [Process completed]

    After which, no client is active.

    I've invested a fair amount of money buying games beforehand without anticipating issues arising. Aside from Repairing permissions (which I've done) or doing a full re-install, what can I do?

    TL:DR version: Steam and other programs won't work since I've upgraded from 10.5 - 10.6.

    Sorry for being long winded. Any help would be much appreciated.

    To note, the "[...] (from old Mac)" folder(s) isn't likely related--old stuff gets dumped in there instead of deleted surreptitiously, which is nice, but most people can just chuck that folder. Even if you don't, nothing (should) be accessing it. You could always delete it just to be sure, but if something in it were actually being used that would probably just change the error instead of fixing it.

    Sorry that my only other suggestion is a reinstall. A basic reinstall (instead of a more extreme install/migrate) is pretty painless, though, and might well fix the issue.
