FS#11563 - Rbutil fails to autodetect, Mac.

For the Sansa Clip+ on Mac OS X

Opened Rockbox Utils, configuration dialog pops up.
Browse to select the clip+ (”/Volumes/SANSA CLIPP”

Click “autodetect” gives this error and grays out all the selectable media players.

IRC Conversation:
<phixxor> “Unless you changed this installation will fail!” <phixxor> changed what?

<phixxor> you might want to improve your error messages
<JdGordon|> where the heck did that come from?
<phixxor> trying to autodetect
<phixxor> this page is helping me though: specifically “Ipod and Sansa players require you to have administrator permissions.” <phixxor> does that mean I need to run rockbox utility as an admin somehow?
<saratoga_> i don’t think its needed on the clip+, just the older sansas
<phixxor> saratoga_, interesting. what could be the problem then?
<saratoga_> what was your problem?
<phixxor> scroll up: starting from “Unless you changed this installation will fail!” <saratoga_> i read that, i just don’t know what you’re talking about
<phixxor> I’ll take a screenshot
<saratoga_> can’t you just describe your problem in words
<phixxor> already did
<phixxor> i clicked autodetect and got that error
<phixxor> <saratoga_> never seen that before, but random guess: is that path correct?
<JdGordon|> please file a bug with that image
<phixxor> can you point me to your bug filing system?
<JdGordon|> maybe it doesnt like the space in the path name
<phixxor> i tried with an underscore too – should I try a \

should be fixed with r29621.

<phixxor> you might want to improve your error messages

No, thanks – the error message is good enough. The problem is that there seems to be a bug when displaying the error message which cuts of the important part of it. So I’d rather fix the error message display than “improving” the message itself.
