So I don't use my mac often but its in my shop and I would like to have Arudino IDE on it. I was running an older version of the IDE just fine. Figured I should do the latest and greatest. Downloaded 1.0.5, installed on mac, arduino icon bounces in the tray for a bit then goes away, no error box (though honestly been so long since I used OS X...not sure if there is a console log somewhere).
I know my java version was java 5, heard that is no good for the IDE 1.0.5, so went to system update (only way to do it in mac os 10.5.8 i hear) and got the latest 6 and 7. The problem I THINK is that they are 64bit, am I hosed? Does mac os 10.5.8 no longer suport 32bit java 6. That means the arduino IDE will never run again? It feels I am missing something but cannot find anything helpful when I google this.
(it is an intel mac)
