Currently Being ModeratedMay 14, 2010 4:06 PM (in response to Eckbert Peter Dollhofer)looks like Apple is working on this issue:
The latest build also reportedly improves the reliability of VPN connections, addresses a problem that arose while editing photos in a full-screen view with iPhoto or Aperture, and fixes a playback problem that arose when using "Good Quality" deinterlacing while watching a DVD.
in between I did file a bug at Apple and created an liitle movie of the problem after Apple requested it.Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2010 3:47 PM (in response to Eckbert Peter Dollhofer)Unfortunately 10.6.4 does NOT fix this issue! iPhoto still crashes the Mac Mini when sharpness is adjusted (MB138LL/A, 1.83GHz Core2Duo w/ 4GB RAM) while running Snow Leopard 10.6.4.
Steps to reproduce:
1) Run iPhoto
2) Edit a large photo (3072 × 2304, JPEG)
3) Edit the image and hit the adjustments button
4) In the adjustments window, drag the sharpness slider to the right.
OS X will hang while showing display corruption at the top left of the screen. The mouse remains responsive with a spinning wait cursor (beach ball), but the OS and keyboard do not. The only way to fix it is to reboot the Mac Mini by pressing the power button on the back of the Mac Mini.MB138LL/A, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 15, 2010 4:14 PM (in response to White Collar Barbarian)Correct. The problem remains in OSX 10.6.4, exactly as described above. Solution: give up on iPhoto, at least running SL on a Mac Mini.Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.3), iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedJun 20, 2010 10:52 AM (in response to Bmast)Off topic - looks like Apple is geeting more and more MS-alike:
The recent 10.6.4 update from Apple has noticeable performance issues for NVidia graphic chip owners running high performance games. If you wish to avoid this, you should consider waiting to install the 10.6.4 update until Apple has had the opportunity to address this issue. Full details of what is contained in the 10.6.4 update can be found here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4150. If you have already installed this update and believe your graphic performance is affected, please contact Apple support (http://www.apple.com/support/) for details on what to do.
At the moment I really think about going back to 10.4.
Sure SL is nice but most of the (S)Leopard features are useless to me when Iphoto is not working as it should.1.83 2006 MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
