Gimp 2.8.2 not starting on 32 bit Mac OS 10.6.8
Hey guys!

Im pretty new to Gimp and this is my first post so far!
I wanted a picture-editing program but wasn't prepared to buy photoshop, so I saw Gimp as the answer! I got it, used it to colorize a black and white picture of a B-29 and it worked great! Next thing I know, Gimp is having trouble starting. I restarted the computer and Gimp would then work. After a while though, even re-downloading Gimp didn't work. I scoured the internet for someone who was having the same problems as me: No luck.
Here are the computer specs. I am unable to give a crash log though..... Hope you guys can help! -Mc:
PS: I did get the 32 bit version of Gimp

MacBook Intel Core Duo (32-bit)
Mac OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)
2GB of RAM

Hi -- I believe that there was a version of Gimp available that would run on MacOS 10.6.8 with a 32 bit chip (and without X11).

I am looking for that and I can't find it. Where should I be looking?
Thanks.

After uninstalling gimp
Try the latest mac build from gimps official download
"2.8.10"
ftp://ftp.gimp.org/pub/gimp/v2.8/osx/

Then try from here:
scroll down to "Mac OS X 10.5.x Leopard -"
http://gimp.lisanet.de/Website/Download.html

Those are the two widely known mac builds (including Snow Leopard "second link" above) that I'm aware of.
