gnu.io.PortInUseException: Unknown Application
Since the thing worked from commandline:
>>> cat /dev/tty.touchGPS-SSP-1
$GPVTG,0.00,T,,M,0.00,N,0.00,K,N*32... etc etc
I was pretty helpless. Then I found in some mailinglist archive the solution. To cite the guy that solved my problem: "As I've discovered the PortInUseException rarely has anything to do the port being in use.
Nothing to add, tried it and it worked.
UPDATE as of Saturday 4th of April 2009:
As a nice anonymous user comments, these are the steps to go:
- Open 'Terminal' from Applications->Utilities
- Enter the commands:
sudo chmod 777 /var/lock (hit enter again)
