I've been successfully using an MFE I compiled myself using the
osx_packager.pl script on a Macbook Pro for several months now.
I've found that most often problems like the original poster
describes are due to a failure in network communication. To diagnose
this, you need to view the console log. The easiest way to do this is
to open Terminal and use the "open" command to run the .app. For
You will then be able to see the entire log of what's happening. Most
likely, the problem is either that the database host is not defined
or the host isn't allowing connections from the Mac.
