I finally got my parents to step up to a Mac a month or so ago, and yesterday they said that AOL wasn't working. Today I look into it, and it appears that Rosetta is completely dead. AOL wasn't just not working - it wasn't even launching. One bounce on the dock and then it'd disappear. I decided to try and reinstall it, but no dice - after the download, the installer wouldn't even load. (That's what clued me into this maybe being a rosetta problem...) So I try Office - the only other PowerPC app on my machine as far as I know - and it pulls the same stunt; dies before the icon even shows up on the dock. WTF? This machine is pretty new, and hasn't been messed about with. It's the Intel core Duo Mini with 2 gigs of ram. Yes, all of the software is updated, and yes I repaired permissions for voodoo's sake. After searching around, the only other mention of something like this appears to be happening to people who ran monolingual - which we have definitely not done. It appears my only hope is a fresh reinstall of the OS - which isn't a huge deal, but it is a significant pain in the arse, as I have separate user accounts for everyone in the fam. Is there any other way to patch up Rosetta - assuming that is the problem?
