that's just a dependency/library missing, responsible for TerraSync (scenery downloading) - but what about using the latest 2.10 release -same error ?

This is because 10.8, unlike prior versions, no longer includes subversion libraries. With flightgear 2.8 and 2.10, the subversion libraries are included!

Hi there,

I am using OS 10.8 as well, here are my suggestions to get it started:

-->Download version 2.10 from
--> Try opening it the normal way, if that doesn't work:
--> Open terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal)
--> Type in /Applications/
Should look like:
Code: Select all
phil:~ admin$ /Applications/

--> Press enter

Let me know if you have any questions,
