Dear Mac users / developers First, I've heard some users complaining "2.6 for Mac doesn't work," in facebook, or via email without detail info. Could you help me collect what is the cause of this issue?
I want to know the following things for reproducing the problem: - Mac model and OS version (e.g. MacBookPro 15"/nVidia GT330M/OS X 10.7.2) - FG version and revision (e.g. 2.6.0 r314M) - Command-line option (you can get this from Console.app. it looks like 2/20/12 1:16:59.744 PM [0x0-0x4a04a0].net.sourceforge.macflightgear: Starting fgfs.sh with --aircraft=A6M2-jsbsim --browser-app=open --prop:/sim/rendering/multi-sample-buffers=true --prop:/sim/rendering/multi-samples=2 - Crash dump (if available). As I want to release the updater for fixing common issues in 2.6 ASAP, I want to have many info until the end of this week. Second, I want to share with you the known issues on FG 2.6.0 for mac that I've collected so far. #1) fgfs crashes with CitationX, 777-200ER, and any other Aircraft that add menu items. If an aircraft has Nasal/dialog.nas, it likely crashes when initializing subsystems. This is caused by my bad patch and is mac specific bug. :-( --> Fixed #2) fgfs cannot handle --browser-app=open properly. Somehow preferences.xml overwrites the command-line option. --> Workaround made (patch for preferences.xml), Code level fix is needed. #3) Random Vegetations give us the white squares instead of trees. (only on package for 10.5). --> under investigation. #4) 3D clouds don't show up (only on package for 10.5). --> under investigation. #5) Some aircraft's texture look broken with some integrated graphics chips (shutter-like or patch-work-ish). --> bad GPU OpenGL driver? (e.g. Intel HD Graphics), mainly happens with png textures, I guess. Changing png to rgb seems fixing this issue. it doesn't happen when using nVidia GT330M. #6) integrated graphic chip (e.g. Intel HD Graphics) crashes fgfs during startup (some can survive with cockpit view) --> bad GPU OpenGL driver, I guess ( see the dump below) Thread 3 Crashed: 0 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x05120480 glrReturnUnexpectedKillClient + 15 1 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x0500d2c7 GhalInterface::getCommandBuffer(unsigned char**, unsigned char**, unsigned int*, unsigned int*) + 203 2 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x050af495 GHAL3D::CPrivateCommandTransport::FlushCommandBuffer(GHAL3D::FLUSH_TYPE, unsigned char) + 341 3 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x050af217 g575SubmitPacketsToken + 51 4 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x051302e7 _ZL28GetNewVertexBufferFromKernelP17DataBufferManagerP13GLDContextRecm + 79 5 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x051305b7 g575GetVertexBuffer + 243 6 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x050af17a g575PrefetchPrimitiveBuffer + 49 7 com.apple.driver.AppleIntelHDGraphicsGLDriver 0x050af05c glrBeginPrimitiveBufferUseDataBuffer + 171 8 GLEngine 0x04f85225 gleFlushPrimitiveTCLFunc + 652 9 GLEngine 0x04f0064e gleDrawArraysOrElements_ListExecCore + 199 10 GLEngine 0x04ea1fd3 gleDrawArraysOrElementsOutOfLine_ListExec + 1074 11 GLEngine 0x04e9f1ad gleCallList + 125 12 libGL.dylib 0x92baf188 glCallList + 27 13 fgfs 0x0043f2f6 osg::Drawable::draw(osg::RenderInfo&) const + 202 This doesn't happen on major nVidia (e.g. GT330M) and some other AMD discrete chips so far. #7) Cocoa-osgviewer doesn't work properly on some Macs (2.6.0-RC2). Image inside window gets broken when resizing or when using menu. --> I dropped cocoa version and used Carbon version instead. but I want to know what is the cause. It doesn't happen on my MBP15"/nVidiaGT330M/OS X 10.7.2 Thank you, Tat --- Tatsuhiro Nishioka http://macflightgear.sourceforge.net/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Try before you buy = See our experts in action!
