Yep. I love Applehjack, but now I have the SL beta. Would 1.5 do to fix it, or must I wait?
I just have a problem with connecting with my airport after doing a virus scan (And the scanner crashed!) Now I am screwed. Tried deleting apps and preferences, but no dice.
Have you looked at SL yet to prepare for Applejack 2?
I should have a copy of Snow Leopard to start testing with on Thursday Sept. 3rd. From my experiences with the later pre-release seeds, Applejack 1.5 as is will not run - mainly due to the lack of a case in the code for handling a system which reports itself as 10.6. The good news however, is that unlike 10.5, not a whole lot seems to have changed in Snow Leopard, and as such it should be much more straight forward to update.
When I tried running Applejack 1.5 in an early seed of SL (several months ago) it ran without error, but I haven't had the opportunity to try in a more recent seed. As to whether or not 1.5 would work with SL now or in general, there are simply too many factors to say with confidence, "yes it would work", or "no it won't".
If you're feeling adventurous, running it and providing the log and seed version number, or just telling us if it fails would be helpful for anticipating any update we might need to make for 10.6 compatibility. Thanks!
Echoing ultramathman's response. I have had no chance to test it out, and probably will not until Snow Leopard is officially released. If you feel up to the task of testing us, and care to post your experience, that would be appreciated, but please have a backup first.
Snow Leopard is now released. Any information about AppleJack compatibility?
Anyone got Applejack working with Snow Leopard yet?
I did. All I did was reinstall it from the "Applejack
Distribution.mpkg" which I had already sitting on my hard drive. I did
this after upgrading my OS to 10.6 from 10.5.8 and not being able to get
Applejack 1.5 to work. I did not even try to remove the old Applejack 1.5.
Seems to be working fine! If you don't already have the package on your hard
drive, download it from Applejack's web site!
Sounds encouraging. I'll give it a try.
Anyone else try installing Applejack on 10.6.1?

@ maccarter & pierrehobbit
Currently only Repair Disk , Clear Cache , Validate Preferences & Cleanup
Virtual memory work.
You can't repair permissions with it or clear cache & validate prefences
for a specific user.
Is there an update e-mail for Snow Leopard beta ? I'd be willing to take part
in testing... I'll check back, Thanks for all your work on this great
I've had Applejack 1.5 on Snow Leopard 10.6.1 and, so far so good. As
Honemelgren said, it only runs Repair Disk, Clear Cache Validate Prefs, and
Cleanup Virtual Memory. It won't Repair Permissions. But, it runs fine at
startup. Hopefully, we'll see an update with the full set of features soon. It
is a uniquely valuable utility.
I just made a donation, hoping it will help toward a Snow Leopard update.
Please, everybody who can, give a little something. Support free software by
paying for it :)
Last I heard someone was working on a test version that's a bit closer with
SL, is it available for download somewhere?
We are testing a version for Snow Leopard. Stay tuned. My guess is that we'll
have it tested enough for release by mid-June.
