Mac OS X 10.4.7 (PPC)
asciidoc 8.0.0 built from source
MacPython 2.4.3
global configuration directory set to /usr/local/etc, with corresponding changes to the setting in each python script (i.e. asciidoc and a2x).

After installing the software, I tested the installation from the top of the source directory with
asciidoc doc/asciidoc.txt
(I also tried changing into the doc directory with no greater luck).

Results:
asciidoc fails with little informative output. python crashes complaining of a "Bus error" but that's about it.
I checked the Console logs, but those are no more informative.

Uninstalling 8.0.0 and reinstalling 7.1.2 resolves the issue - the asciidoc.txt file included with 8.0.0 compiles fine with just one or two minor warnings.

If there is some way I can set things up so that more informative output is generated and this might be helpful, please let me know.

    I'm still seeing the same errors with:
    asciidoc 8.2.7
    OS X 10.4.11
    python 2.5.2

    I can't figure out how to get more informative output...
