Recommended Posts

I open this post for those who have this problem to explain their kind of

installation and if posible their solutions for ramdom crashes under Leopard 10.5.4.

My problems:

- When more than one OpenGL apps are open at the same time both will

crash in a few minutes with Memory Adrissing Errors.

- When I open iCal it crashes with Memory Adrissing Error, arround

the forum I found someone who got it to work without the know

"Open with Rosetta" solution.

- iDVD crashes after loading DVD editing window.

- SecondLife crashes ramdomly depending on AppleSMBIOS it will

last more or less.

- Microsoft Updater from Office 2008 crashes when the updtes are

downloaded and ready to be installed (not always but normaly).

- CoverFlow shows extrange names in the name label and strange file

kinds in the kind label (this happens randomly, seems like a buffer error

the abnormal names are from previous items)

- The System Preferences app fade effect (when select a preferences panel)

doesn't work properly when graphical acceleration is enabled.

- Safari crashes a very few times ramdomly with the known memory

adressing problem.

- Finder crashes when trying to access to certain volumes (CD'S, Disk images)

and when the CoverFlow shows abnormal many times.
