I recently upgraded Yaws from 1.77 on my PPC Mac and it crashes on start. Report isn't very verbose:

Kernel pid terminated (application_controller) ({application_start_failure,yaws,{shutdown,{yaws_app,start,[normal,[]]}}})

I'm not very experienced with reading crash.dumps but instead did quick bisection (thanks git!) and the error occurs where sendfile driver changes were introduced. First bad commit is:

commit 12471ad51793af685557d8c2cf895cfe5c405461
Author: Claes Wikstrom <klacke@hyber.org>
Date: Sat Dec 20 21:10:52 2008 +0000

added configure support for sendfile

My configuration is:
- Erlang R12B-5
- $ uname -a
Darwin vault 8.11.0 Darwin Kernel Version 8.11.0: Wed Oct 10 18:26:00 PDT 2007; root:xnu-792.24.17~1/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpc

I attached crash.dump below.
