Info to add to sticky for at least OSX 10.6.7
 
Bought a new Mac mini with OSX 10.6.7. I installed Little Snitch (LS) (outgoing network blocking filter) and activated OSX firewall (incoming only). The install jnlp kept failing to d/l the install. This worked fine on the old Mac with OSX 10.4.11.

After several false tries. I disabled LS and the OSX firewall. D/L and install went fine. Ran Minion and all worked fine. Closed Minion and reactivated LS and firewall. Ran Minion and none of the addons would show updates and all kinds of connection errors in the Minion UI. Closed Minion and added it to LS and firewall manually for access and all worked fine.

So what is happening is the firewall and LS do not see this java app/applets accessing the network interface and therefore causing errors or non-install.

This may also be an issue with windows firewalls.

IMO this is a bug with possibly Minion not notifiying the system properly. Vuze is also a java app and the system sees it trying to activate on the network and notifies the user.

i.e. definately not the preferred way of installing but; turn off all network filters/firewalls to install and then give Minion access thru filters/firewalls after the install and restart your filters/firewalls.

It seems my java installer can not make folders. I have tried regular install and get a "Access Is Denied" error. Without modules it works fine, but when i need to update IN the program it errors out.

Help!

Thanks

I just installed Minion on Debian 6.0 Squeeze and the interface starts up but shows <No Services Loaded> and <No Modulaes Loaded>? I have no idea what might be causing this. :confused:

Any update on this?

The error is "java.io.IOExecption:Access Is Denied"

Effectively dead
 
This project is effectively dead. There seems to be no activity by the devs on this forum and no support. They seem to have given up and perhaps they're all using Curse Client.

My old machine died (and it worked there) so I reinstalled Minion... but it just fails at starting java.
I guess I'm back to updating manually.

Java 7
 
Java 7 just loads not running at all. As soon as i changed the link to run from JRE6 it works.

Just figured I would throw that out there so someone can look.

Either Windows or Java.

Attached is a screen collage of Windows depicting Windows environment, java version, folder and Minion's detection results. I'll upload log once I find it. (Installed with Minion's detected settings.)

This works.

Fleety 12-06-11 09:53 AM

Well no replies to my effectively dead post.

Not Minion, which I succeeded in getting working with Lubuntu and Mint just describes the Status of all my addons as Addon not available. :confused:

Meh. If I could only get Curse working in Linux.

luxgeek 04-14-12 10:31 PM

Problem with WOW directory in Linux...
 
Well...your app has no way to show hidden files and WoW is INSIDE ~/.wine, which is a hidden dir, so how am I supposed to tell minion WHERE it is?

Thanks....look forward to using it...eventually :P

Wyll 04-22-12 10:14 AM

same here. somewhat relieved to know it's not just me!

Edit: All better now! Thanks!

Java 7 broke my Minion.. Went back to Java 6 and all is well.. Just an FYI for anyone else having the same problem.:)

Bererengar 07-07-12 01:49 AM

I can confirm the above.

Java 6 runs the minion fine whereas Java 7 doesn't run it at all.

I wish this project would be picked up again by some skilled hands, I wouldn't mind donating a substential amount of cash to it either :)

Just thought I'd mention this...
MMO Minion still doesn't work for me. (Hasn't for over a year or so.)
Figured I'll give it another shot, in case it's fixed.
It installs, but won't start.
Yes, I followed the instructions, and all it does is create one process after another.
I'm assuming this is still dead in the water.
Shame really, I used to like it.

Rammoth 08-25-12 04:50 PM

An admin has stated recently that the project for that has been stopped. They no longer work on it. So you're better off just manually updating addons until they decide to make another project or something. Or, you could use Curse Client to update addons from curse. But that would mean you wouldn't be using addons here anymore. Right now that's the only viable solutions I can find.

Vlad 08-25-12 05:10 PM

Being a part of the zam network, it isn't so much lack of money as lack of priority, really. ;)

There was more motivation back when the idea of having one updater with modules for the various addon sites was not yet dead, it appears to be now tough. :(

Testing the site, it seems to work fine with Java 6 and 32-bit, as it was originally designed for, hurray! Just wish it had filters, table sorting and so forth. ;)

dlaselle 08-03-13 06:36 PM

Win 8 compatbility?
 
I've downloaded and installed it succesfull it refused to open. I've tried all the steps above including the .bat file. Any other suggestions, or does this not work in windows 8?

Seerah 08-03-13 07:48 PM

As mentioned, this project is currently on the back-burner (or discontinued, one could say). As others have said above, it requires Java 6, which you will need to download and install.
