[jitsi-dev] New stable build, not so stable.

Hi

Sorry about the blank email, that'll teach me to trust hotmail.

I was trying to report an issue with the new release.

It crashed on my iMac.

My iMac is can only run a 32 bit kernel, but it has a 64 bit processor, and runs other 64 bit programs such as chrome, with no issues.

Should this work?

If not, I would expect an error box showing the minimum system rather than a crash.

(Also it would be a bit sad, because Jitsi is a really nice program, and at least half the home Mac users I know have systems as old or older than mine.)

Thanks

Jess,

If the whole system crashed you have some other problem. On any modern OS an
application can by definition not crash the system.

My iMac is can only run a 32 bit kernel, but it has a 64 bit processor,

and

runs other 64 bit programs such as chrome, with no issues.

Should this work?

I'm not really knowledgeable about Macs, but if your CPU supports 64bit,
then install a 64bit OS. I have no idea what Chrome is doing.

If not, I would expect an error box showing the minimum system rather
than a crash.

The would indeed be helpful. Any patches are welcome.

(Also it would be a bit sad, because Jitsi is a really nice program, and

at

least half the home Mac users I know have systems as old or older than

mine.)

We already said that we would certainly like to support those, we that we
simply do not have the resources to do so. It already took us way too much
time to perform this release. Again, help is welcome.

Thanks

Hi Ingo

application can by definition not crash the system.

It quits unexpectedly, with a system generated error report.

Unfortunately this is not an option for many Macs. (I believe for all or most white Intel macs).

However this should not ever be an issue, unlike Windows, Macs can run 64 bit code on 32 bit operating systems (providing there is a 64 bit processor).

Sadly I am not a programmer

time to perform this release. Again, help is welcome.

I could certainly run any test builds, and send any error reports.

What system are you actually running? 10.6 Snow Leopard on what model?
