GNS3 fail in OS X Lion

Posted by

Documenting the failure of GNS3 to launch in OS X Lion.

I downloaded the GNS v0.8.2 Lion beta image from the GNS3 website and clicking on the GNS3.app brings me to the following error.

When I ‘Open Console’ I have the following error messages:

1/16/12 4:05:56.730 PM GNS3: GNS3 Error

Bolded line seems relevant, looking for some help in getting this working.
