I am getting repeated computational errors which cause most (though not all) MilkyWay tasks to terminate soon after launching.

I am running an oldish version of MacOSX Version 10.5.8 (Darwin 9.8.0) on a GenuineIntel Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7300 @ 2.00GHz [x86 Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11](2 processors). I am running BOINC 7.2.33.

I have had similar problems with all tasks from Asteroids@Home. OK the machine is prehistoric, but it does successfully run all Einstein@Home projects.

Is there a fix? Or is there a subset of MilkyWay applications that will run on older Macs?


Curiously two tasks seem to have run successfully:
Task 621272327 to completion consuming nearly 2hrs of CPU time
Task 622043280 so far running for 0:49:30

Further to my earlier post: the tasks all seem terminate with the error message:

<core_client_version>7.2.33</core_client_version>
<![CDATA[
<message>
process got signal 5
</message>
<stderr_txt>
dyld: unknown required load command 0x80000022

</stderr_txt>
]]>


Presumably some update of a system call is incompatible with the older version on my machine.
