I had Cubase 5 running on Mountain Lion - mostly fine.
I updated the machine (on a clone on a separate disk - I can boot back to ML if need be - so I’m not entirely sunk) to the latest Yosemite. Cubase 5 is now giving me a segmentation violation on startup in com.apple.main-thread. (I know what a segmentation violation is - been a UNIX guy for > 2 decades)
I had seen a few others report elsewhere on the web that they had Cubase 5 running on Yosemite . But no instructions. I’m very happy making command line changes if there’s something that can be done. I already tried removing the relevant plist files. No dice.
I fully well know it’s not supported. Not my concern at this point. Yes I would upgrade to a later Cubase, but that’s to come later, not this week and I’d like to have it running in the interim if possible.
Has anyone here managed to get it to run successfully on Yosemite? I know the 5 installer program won’t work on Yosemite - nor the Steinberg alternate installer - 6.X and up from what I can tell.
Any thoughts? (Upgrading Cubase is not an option for the short term - looking for actual suggestions to get 5 running on Yosemite )
