Re: can't get on opncpn.org on old mac

Mac OSX 10.6 is called "Snow Leopard" and is not supported by OpenCPN. However you should be able to download an older version:

opencpn.navnux.org/3.2.2/opencpn 3.2.2 gives me a 404 code.
Have any more suggestions ?

Re: can't get on opncpn.org on old mac

From here, looks like a security problem: the site uses a certificate that is not valid for opencpn.navnux.org. The certificate is only valid for the following names: *.netdna-ssl.com, netdna-ssl.com

I suspect it's a misconfiguration, given where the current downloads are hosted, but it's a bad one.

Re: can't get on opncpn.org on old mac

As seen a few days before the OpenCPN people have severe security problems. You might try to download the version 3.2.2 from this link:

I'm on Windows and when I clicked on the topperdiek link it gave me a 39,185 KB file.

Re: can't get on opncpn.org on old mac

You can instal linux on your old MacBook.

opncpn.org works with Linux.

Even old machines run fast with Linux.

If you like MacOS elementary is close: https://elementary.io

Just giving options

Re: can't get on opncpn.org on old mac

THANK YOU, Thank you everyone for all the help.
I have 3.2.2 downloaded on my ancient laptop running 10.6 (snow leopard).


Question: I cannot download vector charts like oeSENC/vectorcharts unless I am running at least 4.6. Can I download 4.6 and will it run on my Mac ?


If not what charts can I run on it?



My boat is in Croatia and I will be cruising the Med around Italy and France to enter the canals at the Rhone River.
