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.



Late 2006 MBP 15" Netflix

27 February 2014 - 07:36 PM

I have an old MacBook Pro with 2GB RAM and the Core2Duo chip.  Lion 10.7.5 is installed.  I'm using it as an HTPC connected to my 65" TV via a DVDI to HDMI adapter and an optical cable going to my amp.  This is working great for movies in plex.  High bitrate 1080p movies work perfect.  Netflix is a different story.  I get bad stuttering during fast scenes.  1080p is almost unusable.  720p is at least watchable but isn't perfect. 


I've tried using firefox, chrome, kylo and safari.  They all perform the same way with netflix.  


Is this expected for my hardware or should I consider doing a wipe and install 10.6?
