2.40 unusable on iMac 17", 10.4.3

Post by TroutMaskReplica » Fri Dec 23, 2005 2:16 am

for some reason i can't log in to the bug tracker, so hopefully someone can post it there for me or notify someone.

the 2.40 release has severe issues on this g4 imac, specs as in the thread title.

menus are unresponsive, hitting the space bar fails to bring up the tool box, as does shift a, i can hover over menus (File, Add, Timeline, Game, Render, Help) and those items will highlight, but the actual menu itself fails to materialise.

i can pull the preferences window down, but can't click on any of the buttons. ctrl w appears to do nothing. actually, no shortcuts really appear to work except shift spacebar. i can't grab an object, scale an object, duplicated an object or do anything that requires a hotkey or menu.

previous release worked fine, including the alpha release. (i didn't test the release candidate on this machine)

workaround: when blender freezes, if i switch to another program and then switch back again the problem goes away for the remainder of the session, and i can continue to work as i normally would.

It's apple's fault.

They'll fix it with 10.4.4 sometime after the new year.

Right. This is a bug in Mac OS 10.4.3. It pretty much makes blender completely unusable if you have an nvidia card. Switching back and forward between apps makes Blender work ok for five minutes here, and then it goes bad again. Eagerly awaiting 10.4.4!
