Thanks for the great test!
This installer really only starts the Venue Client, so I'm not surprised
you couldn't 'manage my node' - I'll work on a more thorough startup
script. For now, if you want to run other services (they're all there),
you can change into the installed bundle (It'll be something like
'/Applications/Access Grid Toolkit.app') and look at the
'Content/MacOS/runag.sh' script. Basically, you set a couple
environment variables to point into the bundle (notably the
GLOBUS_LOCATION and PYTHONPATH variables) and then you can manually run
any of the scripts using pythonw. Also, there aren't any media tools
yet (just the core toolkit), though as soon as there are some working,
I'll be glad to add them ;-) I'm also glad it worked using 10.3.4 - I
wasn't sure it would. Thanks again!
