[squeak-dev] Problems creating a fresh trunk image (on Mac)

Dear Squeakers,

I want to make myself a pristine trunk image and ran into a problem. I am on a Mac running OS X El Capitan 10.11.5. Here is what I did:

1. Created a new directory
2. Downloaded the latest stable CogSpur VM [1]
3. Downloaded the latest sources file [2]
4. Downloaded Squeak5.1-15113 image [3]
5. Dragged the image onto the VM
6. Opened a transcript
7. Did „Update Squeak“ from the Squeak menu

The image updates to #16084 but then a debugger opens: MessageNotUnderstood: WeakArray>>hand

When I click on some of the stack frames, I get syntax errors and the code looks garbled.

I tried it three times. The same debugger comes always up, however the code is garbled in a different way. Looks like sources or changes file corruption, no?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Is there a better way to create a current trunk image?
