Lots of people are reporting, they are experiencing a lagging OSX after upgrading to Mac OSX 10.7 Lion.
For me, yet this was a shaky ride on a MBP 2011, having issues that severely affected the usability of my system.

Mac OSX Lion 10.7 System Freezes: kernel: IOSurface: buffer allocation size is zero (console message)
see the blog entry on that topic
http://www.nanofunk....onsole-message/

while updating to adobe labs flash 11.0 player solves some freezing issues, still console.app is displaying errors every minute: IOSurface: buffer allocation size is zero

please take a minute to reproduce the issue and let's see if we can get a more detailed information on what is really going on:

  • Open Console.app
  • select "kernel.log" in the dropdown list on the left side
  • press "Clear Display" on the Menu Bar
  • navigate to http://www.adobe.com...re/flash/about/ with a browser of your choice and see if a console message shows up when doing so.

please post the results to the poll attached to this entry.

@vkd: please write your concerns to the Adobe Forums in the existing thread. This is the only way we can get Adobe to fix this fast.

I get a kernel panic if I leave it running and Console.app gets flooded with the IOSurface error message.

It works fine though if I disable hardware acceleration in Flash.

Poll is outdated: running flash Version: 11.2.202.235 in Chrome Version 19.0.1084.46

Based on this thread on Apple Support Communities I think this may be either a problem with some Apple OS Core framework Flash uses or a hardware issue: https://discussions....art=90&tstart=0

How many people in this thread have ATI 5xxx Cards?
