My Feed the Beast mod pack crashes as soon as it finishes the "FTB" start page. I am on Mac OSX Lion, running Apple Java 6. It gives me no warning, it just closes randomly, like it can't open the thread maybe?

Here's a video demonstrating the crash, first using Java 7, then using Java 6:

    OOH. It's not FTB crashing, it's the FTB Launcher crashing. Oct 1, 2013 at 16:26

    @Joachim Yes, that is why I flagged the question. I have a strong belief that questions that are now off-topic should be closed as off-topic, even if they were on-topic when they were asked.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this a request for tech support for modded minecraft, and the video with the details is a dead link.

You need to update LWJGL in FTB's copy of Minecraft, not the default copy of Minecraft.
