    If you use vent, in leopard you will notice that the channel window does not display anything. The guys at vent are not too concerned about a patch but would rather continue working on the next release.

    Run the following:

    cd /Applications/Ventrilo.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/main.nib
    cp objects.xib /tmp/objects.xib.old
    cat objects.xib | sed 's/rowHeight">0/rowHeight">20/g' > /tmp/objects.xib.new
    sudo cp /tmp/objects.xib.new /Applications/Ventrilo.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/main.nib/objects.xib

    your done. vent now works.

    Oh sweet ... this is actually the only item that my GF won't upgrade to Leopard because of. I will have to try it out this weekend.

    sudo -s [Enter your password to gain root rights]
    cd /Applications/Ventrilo.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/main.nib
    cp objects.xib /tmp/objects.xib.old
    cat objects.xib | sed 's/rowHeight">0/rowHeight">20/g' > /tmp/objects.xib.new

    No idea, but I don't get why that guy pretty much never communicates to the community about what he is doing with Ventrilo. The last major update to Ventrilo was 7-18-2005. He says a major update is pending bu when? That was 3 months ago looking at his news post. Ventrilo is great software I use it everyday, but why is this guy so secretive and closed about it?
