    Hi, I cannot launch FlightGear 2 , it quits after the loading screen.
    Here's a part of the log:
    initializing FGMacOSXEventInput

    Closing HID: My Book
    HID Device Atached: Apple Wireless Keyboard

    Closing HID: Apple Wireless Keyboard
    Unknown exception in the main loop. Aborting…

    (My Book is my external Hard Drive )
    Any help appreciated

    Hi Alex,

    I am new to FGFS and I am having the exact same problem.

    I have downloaded and installed as follows:

    FlightGear Mac OS X version 2.0.0 (276)
    Platform =  Apple iMac 27" running MAC OS X 10.6.6
    Associated hardware = Apple Wireless Keyboard & Mouse

    When I attempt to launch FGFS (click on 'Start Flight' button) the resulting log file shows the following:

    initializing FGMacOSXEventInput
    HID Device Atached: Apple Wireless Trackpad
    No configuration found for device Apple Wireless Trackpad
    Closing HID: Apple Wireless Trackpad
    HID Device Atached: Apple Wireless Keyboard
    No configuration found for device Apple Wireless Keyboard
    Closing HID: Apple Wireless Keyboard
    Unknown exception in the main loop. Aborting…
    .
    .
    .
    … which is then followed by a a whole lot of clean-up items as it closes down the launch.

    Any ideas on how to get it working?

    KRgds,

    Tony
