I can't get Roo 1.1.1 to run on my Macintosh
I un-commented the echos in the roo.sh:
____ ____ ____
/ __ \/ __ \/ __ \
/ /_/ / / / / / / /
/ _, _/ /_/ / /_/ /
/_/ |_|\____/\____/ 1.1.1.RELEASE [rev 156ccd6]
<- It stalls here. I have the following hardware:
Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,2
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 3.06 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache: 6 MB
Memory: 4 GB
any ideas what I'm missing?

What version of Java is currently being used? Have you used any version of Roo prior to 1.1.1? What about if you try passing Roo a script file from the command line? (i.e. "roo script file.txt")? Is it running in a directory that already has source in it?

Thanks for responding. This is actually the first development I'm trying on my mac besides iPhone dev. I've done java dev since '98 but this is a first on a mac.
1) Java jdk 1.6.2
2) My dir is ten-minutes
3) I have not had any roo on my box prior to yesterday.
4) I just tried passing in a file, same results.
Here is the log.roo

I have to ctl-d to close the terminal.

I just did a sanity check to make sure that java is installed correctly and it seems to be.
java version "1.6.0_22"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04-307-10M3261)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 17.1-b03-307, mixed mode)
and to correct my earlier post, the version is 1.6.0_22

If all else fails RTFM!
Last night re-read the install instructions. Here is what I was missing:
"If you use OS X, we strongly recommend the use of the iTerm application for terminal emulation."
Once it did that it works like a charm.
Here is the link for iTerm: http://iterm.sourceforge.net/downloads.shtml

Wow... I didn't even think of that. I use iTerm by default, and hadn't even thought about it when your question popped up. Sorry that I couldn't be of help, but congrats for being persistent and getting to the bottom of it!

jdk5 on OS X 10.5.8PPC
I run Roo 1.1.1.RELEASE [rev 156ccd6] under jdk build 1.5.0_26 on OS X 10.5.8 PPC and I use the Terminal app without any problems what so ever.
So possibly this problem is isolated to jdk6 or OS X 10.6. Anyone know for sure?

JDK 1.6.0_22 on Mac OS X 10.6.6 (10J567)
Also no problems with terminal.app on above configuration with Roo 1.1.1

That's nice to know. I'm getting an Intel Mac this year.

BTW, I thought this idea with using iTerm was for the 1.0 release and some problems with colors in the Terminal app. Where in the manual is this recommendation?
