    HELP! "Buss error...Main Thread...Address 0x0"

    Need help ASAP!

    I'm in a middle of a project when this shows up when I try to launch MC. Avid will not continue after launch.

    I already did:

  • Reinstalled MC
  • Disk Utility-repair permisson
  • Deleted user files -- mc state, ....etc
  • Deleted data base files in media directories

    I appreciate any help.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried disconnecting any/all firewire devices?  Also check the console log for clues.

    Thanks.

    All firewires disconnected. Still no launch. Here's the log.

    That's it.  See all the notices for MediaComposer?  It looks like right before the "bus error" it was trying to load something with Marquee.  Were you using Marquee before the program starting giving you problems?

    I think I did. I checked the application folder, I cannot find the marquee application.

    So how can I fix it?

     

    Thanks

    Try uninstalling MC again and after that delete the files that say "Avid" in the Library>Receipts folder. Then delete Avid and Digidesign folders in Library>Applications Support.  Then I would restart and install MC again.  (might as well try the new 3.1.3 version since you're already going to all the trouble.)

    If it is still crashing on startup maybe it's worth taking a look at the console log again and see if anything has changed.

    Are you running the Avid Uninstallers? If not, run all the uninstallers and delete any Avid folder left in the Applications folder. Its a good idea to use the Disk Utility to repair permissions.

    Install Media Composer with a User Account that has Administrator privileges, this is crucial.

    Select the Media Composer Application folder and Get Info, turn down the Sharing & Permissions so you see what users have right to it, click on the lock and in the bottom right and enter your password.

    If your user isn’t there, click the + and add your user from the list and give yourself read and write permission. Once you’ve done this click on the wheel and apply to enclosed items. Its a good idea to repair permissions after doing this.

    OnyX is a good free utility to perform system maintenance.

    • *Used all the Avid Uninstallers
    • *Deleted the Avid folders
    • *I am (my account is) the administrator.

     

    Please help!!!!

    Re: HELP! "Buss error...Main Thread...Address 0x0"

    Here - I copied this from another thread.  Try it.

    "Try uninstalling the Caption plug-in:

     

    1. control click on the AvidMediaComposer application
    2. Choose Show Package Contents
    3. Open the Contents > SharedSupport > AVX2_Plug-Ins folder
    4. Drag Caption.avx out of the package
    5. Launch AvidMediaComposer"

    If this works it means that you have installed a font that Media Composer can't load.

    SALAMAT (thanks)! It worked!

    Yeah, We needed to install some Korean fonts. So, that was the cause? Why? Will the missing Caption file have a side effect on MC's performance?

    Also, I cannot find a way to sort out the fonts to uninstall them. I tried by creation/modification date but they reflect their orginal dates, not the installation date.

    Thanks again & God bless!
