Community Edition doesn't start on mac

Hey guys,

I am new to Intellij and downloaded the community edition of intellij.  I'm trying to run this on Mac OS Ver 10.5.8.  

I tried to start it and nothing comes up.  Has anyone else had this problem?  Am I missing something here?

Check the following two log files for error messages:

/var/log/system.log
~/Library/Caches/IntelliJIDEA8x/log/idea.log

The idea.log probably is your best bet, but defintely check your system.log.

Post any error messages if you need more help.

Thanks for the response.

I found the following.  Not sure what I'm supposed to do from here.  

system.log file.

Looks like there is a plugin that was compiled for Java 1.6 but IntelliJ is running under 1.5. Do you have java 1.6 installed?

Seems odd it switched to 1.5 unless you don't have 1.6 installed:

Community Edition itself is build with Java 1.6 so you'll need Java 1.6 to run it.
