I'm relatively new to using Mac. My OS is 10.5.8. Yesterday I tried to install Tunnelblick but it did not work properly so I used the Tunnelblick Uninstall Disk Image to remove it.


However, now when I boot up my Macbook - I receive an error messages saying that 'the application ruby has quit unexpectedly' and prompting me to relaunch, ignore or report.


Here is the report associated with the error:


Process:                ruby[128]

Path:                      /Users/N/

Identifier:               ruby

Version:                 ??? (???)

Code Type:            X86 (Native)

Parent Process:     ruby [98]


OS Version:           Mac OS X 10.5.8 (9L31a)

Report Version:     6



Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000002, 0x0000000000000000

Crashed Thread:  0


Dyld Error Message:

  Symbol not found: _getgroups$DARWIN_EXTSN

  Referenced from: /Users/N/

  Expected in: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib




Could someone please tell me how to fix this?



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
