I recently downloaded the Perseus Collection and everything seems to work great except for this resource. Everytime I have tried to open Nicomachean Ethics the entire program freezes and shuts down. Any thoughts, suggestions???

This seems to open fine for me. I'm not sure if there's something in the beta (4.5b2) that fixes a problem with the gold release, though.

It's possible that the problem is with the resource itself. To fix that hide the resource (Tools>Program settings>Hide- at bottom of settings panel). Then restart L4 to delete the file. Then reopen and unhide. This should download a new file.

If the problem is with the index, the solution is more complicated, so let's try the above first and see if that works.

It works fine for me too.  Maybe you aren't holding your mouth right when you click on it.  Wink

BTW:  I don't have the beta — just the plain old vanilla L4.

I tried your suggestion of hiding the resource, restarting, and etc. I am still experiencing the same problem. I am on a Mac. When I try to open the resource I get the rainbow wheel and then have to force quit Logos. What should i try next?

Don't have a Mac. However, sometimes Logos just takes inordinately long to do somethings. How long have you let it set at the 'rainbow wheel?'

It may be worth taking this to the Mac forums for more specific guidance.

Sorry, cannot duplicate your problem. The resource on your system—or the index—must be corrupt.

"Rebuild Index" may fix your problem, but be aware that this process takes a loooong time.

Otherwise, my only suggestion would be to contact Customer Service.

Perhaps, the Smiling One will have another suggestion when Denver wakes up.

I just started the "rebuild index" process. Hopefully this works. If not I will be requesting more suggestions. Thanks everyone.

If not, make sure you come over to the mac forum. We wouldn't want to confuse any PC users. Smile

Yes, I know.  I remember reading this in a philosophy class in college — wise words.

EDIT:  Correction, that was in a Greek class.

Well everybody, just finished the rebuild index and I still am having the same issue. After more work I have discovered that this has happened with every greek resource I have attempted to open out of the perseus collection. Any more thoughts??

What version of L4 do you have?

I guess that rules that out as the problem.

It looks like you'll need to contact customer or tech support: tech@logos.com or the phone number at the top of the Logos.com web site.

Curious about some Mac hardware specifications ? (e.g. CPU, RAM, Disk)  Also wondering if using Logos Greek Morphology visual filters ?

Apologies: unable to replicate: can open Nicomachean Ethics (Greek) using Logos 4.3 SR-5 on Mac, including several Logos Greek Morphology visual filters.

Would like to look at Logos 4 diagnostic logs (after program shuts down).

Wiki Mac Troubleshooting => How to Report Bugs in Logos 4 Mac includes link to 5504.Logos4MacLogging.app.zip (display logging setting, then optionally change); also links to Logos Log Scribe (create zip file of Logging folder with copy of console messages)

Other option is contacting Logos Mac Support => http://www.logos.com/about/contact  With your permission, Logos can connect with desktop sharing.

Keep Smiling Smile

Here is my logs of the problem.

Puzzling: Logos4.log file has no surprises (similar lines appear when open Nicomachean Ethics using Logos 4.3 SR-5 on Mac OS X Snow Leopard).  The lines include updating history and bookmarks.  Wonder about clearing History and not showing bookmarks:

  1. Restart Mac
  2. Launch Logos 4 to blank layout (click Dock icon, quickly press and hold command key until dialog box appears, release command key, click "Use a blank layout", click Sign-in)
  3. Clear History in Logos 4 (Tools => History, then click Clear button)
  4. Turn off Show Bookmarks (Tools => Program Settings, click No for "Show Auto and Favorite Bookmarks" and "Show Search Bookmarks")
  5. Open Nicomachean Ethics

Likewise wonder about System Memory page outs ?

Wiki Mac Troubleshooting => Slow Performance includes: "Paging is one cause for spinning rainbow wheel (Spinning Beach Ball) as memory is written to/from disk."

Curious if console messages have any interesting lines between 07:45:38 and 07:46:00 on 10/21/2011 ? (same time as opening resource, looking for contention, which could be a cause for spinning beach ball)
