Does anyone have carbon lib 1.5? Cannot find a download anywhere. I updated to carbonlib 1.6 and everything went haywire, frozen boots, application crashes ect.. I reset the PRAM a few hundred times and it only works for a couple of boots than it starts all over. I have OS 9.0.4

    Hi, hiteckredneck129 -

    Here - CarbonLib 1.5

    That's a direct download link, file size about 3.5MB.

    I did quite a bit of compatibility testing as the various versions of CarbonLib came out. I found some bugs but in general, the higher the version, the more stable the result.

    Also, CarbonLib is VERY passive. That is, it only becomes active when an application requests it. And applications only request it if they have been modified to run with OS X.

    Lots of stuff wasn't modified.

    I suggest that you use the Extension Manager and deactivate it as a test. You may find that it isn't used at all - thus making the source of your problem something entirely different.

    I have NEVER seen that complaint here. Are you running some unusual Applications? Could you have a bad download of CarbonLib 1.6?
