Applications compatibles ou non SL 32 bits / 64 bits

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



A la veille de cette mise a jours tant attendue, je pense qu'il serait interessant de repertorier les applications qui posent probleme ou non sous Snow Leopard.


Je vous propose de lister ici les applications que vous avez deja pu testees en mode de demarrage 32 bits et en mode 64 bits. Soyons clair, il ne s'agit pas de determiner quelles applications sont codees en 32 ou en 64, mais juste de lister celles qui posent ou non probleme lors de l'execution du systeme en mode 32 et ou 64 Bits.


Compatible 32/64 Bits :



  1. Little Snitch 2.2 beta 1 ===> attention tout de meme.
  2. XBench
  3. Geekbench v. 2.1.3
  4. Colloquy
  5. flip4mac wmv Beta
  6. firefox
  7. parallel desktop 5.0 beta
  8. Onyx 2.0.5 Beta 4
  9. PeerGuardian 1.6 Beta1 (exclusivement SL)
  10. Les suites Adobe CS3 et CS4


Compatible 32 Bits seulement :


  1. Little Snitch


Pas compatible du tout :


  1. ONYX
  2. vmware fusion 2.0.5
  3. Listing officiel Apple : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3258



PS: article entierement edite sans accents.... pour eviter les problemes d'encodage du forum. DSL
