#8854 closed defect (not a bug)

64 bit mac build does not appear as 64 bit in Mac OS X

Severity: Keywords: osx

Mac OS X 10.8.3 (also tested on 10.7.5) does not recognize the TorBrowser-en-US app as a 64-bit app.

--- Steps to reproduce the problem :

Download the latest 64-bit stable or alpha build of Tor for Mac OS X.
Move the file "TorBrowser-en-US" in the Applications folder
Launch "System Information"
Go to "Software", then "Applications"
Check "TorBrowser-en-US". In the column "64-bit (intel)", it says "No".

When launched, Vidalia and Tor Browser appear as 64 bit in system monitor, so I guess this is just some kind of missing declaration in an info.plist file...

I think this is probably because the launch script is just a shell script and architecture-independent and is unrelated to the .plist files. Vidalia doesn't declare any architecture in its .plist file, and TorBrowser has some information but it lists both i386 and x86_64 under the LSMinimumSystemVersionByArchitecture key...

Yeah. After looking around a bit I don't see that there is a way to do this and I'm not sure it's desired behavior anyway. ev11xjk5t, if you feel differently or can find me some more relevant documentation about this, feel free to re-open (as a task or enhancement though, not a defect). Thanks.
