Must force quit DaVinci Resolve 14b5 on El Capitan
on Jul 22, 2017 at 1:27:38 pm

Hi,

Running Mac OS 10.11.6; early 2008 MacPro; 2 x 2.8 Ghz quad; 24GB ram; hacked GTX 480 MP (1536mb); BMD Mini Monitor.

I like Resolve 14 a lot, "Go BMD!!!" Would like to dump Adobe CC. However, I must force quit the program every time. Reinstalled El Crapitan, etc., to no avail. Is it MacOS 10.11 or a Resolve problem?

Apple won't allow installation of Sierra on this machine or I'd try that.

Thanks for relieving my troubled mind (on this issue at least),

-Russ Johnson

Have you tried reseting the PRAM and the SMC.
It's also possible that it just may not run properly on a 3,1.
As an example ProTools 12.7 and up is super flakey on these machines.

I can give it a go one one of mine next week and let you know.

Have you tried Resetting the PRAM yet.

Hi Brent,

Yes, I've tried resetting PRAM and the SMC before I even posted. I'm running a multiple OS machine, so I do that as a matter of course due to switching between OS versions.

I was wondering if this was an issue with Resolve 14 because it's in beta, so I was curious if anyone else was having the issue. Obviously, no one else has come forward. BTW, thank you for your interest and the sole response to my query.

Apple has dropped my machine from Sierra, but I'm considering hacking the installation. Here's a reference on that subject: https://all-about-apple.com/install-macos-sierra-older-macs/

I'll report any developments.

One more thought have you installed the Nvidia WebDrivers and did you go into System Preferences and make sure the CUDA Drivers are up to date.

You can find the Nvidia Web Drivers at MacVidCards although I did have to search the net to find the latest 346.03.15f09 Version for Apples last Security Update. I found them here.

SOLVED: Must force quit DaVinci Resolve 14b5 on El Capitan

SOLVED - thank you Brent. The CUDA driver was up to date, but I was using the default OS X driver. I followed your link to the Nvidia driver and updated. The problem is gone and I now have the Nvidia driver system panel. Couldn't find a compatible update last time I searched that would install on El Capitan. (I do use go-ogle.com but couldn't find it in my delirium.) THANKS for the suggestion and link.

A note to Michael, you're right. I'll do as you suggest.

Thanks to you both and the Holy Cow.

-Russ

There are many of us here who use Linux or Windows versions. Or haven't jumped into beta 14 yet as we are mid projects. The Blackmagic Forum is the better place to report beta bugs and get user feedback for your hardware and OS specifics.

Russ, I am also on an early 08 octo, and 10.11.6, and Resolve 14.0.0.078, and it consistently hangs on quitting. But it still seems reliable.

I generally use a 2012 5,1 but I just thought I'd comment on your issue.
I do have some 2008 3'1's and I found them problematic with EL Capitan and Resolve 14.
I did the Patch Upgrade to Sierra on them and all those issues went away.

Here's a link to a website that explains very well how to do it.
It's not the website were you get the patcher from but this guy explains it better.

The link doesn't seem to work properly so I will just paste it in.

Hi guys,

I'm still running El Capitan (aka El Crapitan) on my early 2008 MP. However, at this date I'm on Resolve Studio 14.3 and have experienced no issues with it at all, so far. FYI, Blackmagic specifies macOS 10.12.6 Sierra, but as I say, no problems so far. Your mileage may vary, so approach with caution.

Brent, I've seen various methods of updating to Sierra with the MacPro 3.1, but didn't want to deal with possible issues like having problems with regular OS security updates, etc. Have you encountered the like?

Thanks.

If you follow this guys instructions all security updates work without any issues.
I find his instructions more complete than the ones on the site of the guy who made the patcher file.
I've installed Sierra on 3 - 3,1's without any issues.
