Issues with finder

07 November 2014 - 09:14 PM

With Yosemite I've been experiencing some annoying behaviour with finder.  I like to have my finder window larger in size and in list view.  At random times I find the finder window will reset back to it's default small size and icon view.  I've tried clearing all of the .DS_Store files on my system.  I've tried clearing caches and removing the finder plist.  None of this has worked.  I am almost to the point where I want to go back to 10.9.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Preview corrupting images

06 October 2014 - 02:49 AM

I use preview on a regular basis to rotate jpg images.  I'm currently on 10.10 14a379b (beta 4?) but have had problems with all public betas.  The problem I am having is if I rotate an image then save it the colors of the image become messed up.  


Is anybody else experiencing this issue?  I'm wondering if it is a bug or if it's something related to my video card.  I was going to use feedback assistant to report the issue however I don't think it would go over too well with apple seeing an imac 11,3 with an nvidia 560ti video card.


Sleep issues

23 August 2014 - 10:06 PM

In mavericks sleep works as is should.  In yosemite beta 2 my computer randomly wakes itself up.  Is anybody else experiencing this?


Here is the output of pmset -g assertions  At 2:34pm the computer woke itself up.  Any idea what MAGICWAKE is about?  At 11:18AM I woke the computer up myself by pressing a key on the keyboard.


Assertion status system-wide:

   BackgroundTask                 0

   ApplePushServiceTask           0

Can't install - black screen

19 August 2014 - 06:50 PM

I'm trying to install the public beta of yosemite on my system that is in my signature.  I have clover 2820 which works fine with mavericks.  I downloaded the installer for yosemite and used the createinstallmedia install method to install the installer to a 16GB flash drive.  I boot clover with the flash drive plugged in and chose the install yosemite entry.  I also have fakesmc and my realtek driver in kexts/10.10.  I chose to boot the installer with injected kexts. 


The boot messages show fakesmc loading and also the realtek driver.  I then get a bunch of launchd errors about path not found.  This goes on for a minute or 2 then I see a message from the realtek driver saying link up and the connection speed.  I then see some more launchd messages and then my monitor goes in to standby and nothing else happens.


I have a monitor plugged in to the DVI port which is how it has been since 2009.  I am using nvidia injection in clover.  I also enabled vbios and I use vbios patching to enable 1080p in clover.  


Can anyone offer any tips?  I do think the installer is loaded it's just that there is no video.
