    I am trying to get Boa to run on my Powerbook G4,  OS X 10.4.8. However, attempting to go through the tutorial makes Boa crash. The problem occurs when adding a menubar, and googling for  "osx boa menubar crash"  brings up http://mail.python.org/pipermail/pythonmac-sig/2005-August/014905.html where the problem is explained.

    Is anyone succesfully using Boa on OS X? My setup as reported by Boa is Boa 0.5.2, Python 2.4.4 and wx.Platform __WXMAC__ 2.6.3.3, Finnish.

    Thanks,
      Pertti

      The same thing happens with wxPython 2.7.2.

      Hiya. This looks like a common problem. Anyone reported it as a bug?

        Hi,

        I don't use it on a MAC but I noticed in a post on the Boa gmane list by Paul Sorensen that he moved the call "self.SetMenuBar", i.e. move it to afte the init:

                 self._init_ctrls(parent)
                 self.SetMenuBar(self.menubar)  # added for Mac compatibility

        Let us know if this helps.

        Werner
