Olex2 on MacOS High Sierra - computer freezes

Post by djohnston » 06 Nov 2017, 05:56

Is anybody else having troubles with Olex2 on MacOS High Sierra? My Macbook completely freezes anytime I run any command that calls something outside of Olex2, such as edit, platon, or even shell. It happens even after a completely clean install.

For what it may be worth, here are possibly relevant entries from /var/log immediately preceding the crash:

Code: Select all

Hi,

this would definitely cause that crash. It however works fine on 10.10.5. I would try using the 32 bit version,

Cheers,
Oleg.

Thanks - I did try clean installs of both the 32 and 64-bit versions and observed the same behavior in both cases.

Hi,

I am currently also facing the very same problem. The program tends to crash quite easily and also freezes the computer quite often.
I think this problem might require an update of the software...

Greetings from Braunschweig

I will upgrade my Mac to the latest OS version (if it is possible with the available hardware!) to see if I can reproduce this 'freezing',

Cheers,
Oleg.

Yes, I can confirm that it freezes completely after upgrading from Yosemite to High Sierra - obviously this is not only Olex2's fault but some system instability. I will try to find out the reason behind this.

Looks like this is not an isolated case:
