10.5.1 Freezes after/during mounting image.

I have started to have this problem AFTER the installation of the 10.5.1 update: Leopard (especially with smaller DMG image files) will hard-lock (temporarily) when finishing up the mount on the image file. EVERYTHING locks - I can't change programs, click anything on the dock and everything appears to cease to function altogether. This occurs for anywhere from 20 seconds in upwards of 3-5 minutes. I don't, generally, have this problem with DMG files that are at least 50mb or more, but have it on EVERY file that is 10mb or smaller.

Repair permissions with Disk Utility. If the problem persists, manually reinstall the 10.5.1 update and repair permissions again.

  • Kernel freeze after user mount

    I'm having some kind of problem trying mounting CD, DVD etc (blank media or already recorded)
    I put the disk into the device, try to mount (typing the command in a konsole, user id, not root) and everything freezes. Nothing answer, even ssh (to try to shut it down from other computer).
    It doesn't happened all the time, but I'm don't have learn the pattern yet.
    I have kernel kernel26, dbus 1.0.2-3, util-linux 2.12-10, ... updated according to pacman -Syu
    I've searched logs in /var/log and nothing (nothing in errors.log, kernel.log, acpi, syslog.log ...
    Does anyone have a similar problem?

    just in case anyone else stumbles upon this post, here is what I did. No idea weather it is the correct way, but it works for me:
    [email protected]_mba ~ $ ls -lah /usr/local/bin/startup.sh
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 323 Apr 8 21:32 /usr/local/bin/startup.sh
    [email protected]_mba ~ $ cat /usr/local/bin/startup.sh
    # mount dropbox
    /usr/bin/mount -t ecryptfs /home/dropbox/Dropbox/Encrypted /home/maximilian/SYNC
    # /home/maximilian/.cache to ram
    /usr/bin/mount -t tmpfs -o size=25%,uid=maximilian,gid=maximilian,mode=1755 tmpfs /home/maximilian/.cache/
    # kill dropbox => icon fix
    /usr/bin/sleep 10 && /usr/bin/pkill dropbox
    [email protected]_mba ~ $ sudo cat /etc/sudoers | grep startup
    # allow startup.sh without passwd
    maximilian ALL = (root) NOPASSWD: /usr/local/bin/startup.sh
    and I placed the line
    sudo /usr/local/bin/startup.sh &
    into my .xinitrc.
    I'm still interested in other solutions for this problem.

  • 5800 XM: video image freezes, after firmware updat...

    After updating to firmware version 40, I have a freezing video problem.
    When I play video file (.mp4), it starts playing as always but after a while image freezes but sound continues playing. No way forwarding video, the freezed image is always there but sound plays normally.
    I have Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, firmware version
    Everything else is working correctly in the phone after update to 40 firmware.
    Is it a problem that could be solved? 
    Thank you

    I downloaded this software but is unsigned. So using it means I must accept the possibility of damaging my files later... not an acceptable solution.
    As its a paid for app their is no problem i run it on my 5800 .

    What that this mean? Where is the expression taken from?

    I would really appreciate an official answer or proposal to solve this without wasting my time in converting those films that used to work in version 30.

  • Ps freezing after saving image as

    PS is freezing up after I save image as . It is similar to bieng in free transform and trying to click on other buttons. My computer crashed last week and i just recently reinstalled the program. Should I deactivate and reinstall again?

    First you may want to try other trouble shooting routines, like trashing the Preferences.

  • My Mac freezes after waking up

    I have a rMBP mid 2014 that keeps freezing after sleep, but not every time, since I upgraded to latest Yosemite 10.10.3. I can move the mouse and close all active programs, but it takes long time and will anyway not restart after that. I have to force power off and then power on again, then it will work for a while.
    I have tried to do the upgrade again och even tried to reinstall Yosemite again, but it didn't help. Here's a report:

    Rid the MBP of CleanMyMac.  It may very well be the source of your problems.
    NO so called cleaning or performance applications should be installed in a Mac.  At best they will do nothing, at worst they can corrupt your system.

  • I own a late 2009 Macbook Pro, and it keeps freezing after OSX Lion installation.

    I own a late 2009 Macbook Pro, and it keeps freezing after OSX Lion installation.  I will post my computer's 'specs' below.  I installed Lion, from Snow Leopard, through the App store.  The first week, it worked like a dream, and was loving my brand new computer, or so it seemed.  I then began to run into problems, and I can't confirm this 100%, but I believe it was after I updated from 10.7.1, to 10.7.2. 
    The freezes are sporatic at best, and cannot be narrowed down to one app.  I googled the issue about two weeks ago, and found a fix involving a temporary log-in, verifying the disk, restarting the computer holding CMD+R, and repairing the disk from there.  That fixed the problem.  For about three or four days.  From there I brought my laptop to Best Buy, where I purchased the computer (start the groans, my dad wanted the accidental damage, and he was paying, there was no argument).  My warranty there was still good, but all they were offering was to check my hard-drive, and possibly ship it out.  That would not be good for me, as I am a High School student, who works online. 
    So I then decided to go to the Apple store, see what they said.  They said a bunch of people had this problem, it would cost a lot to fix, as I would need a new Logic Board.  This did not make any sense to me, as I knew it was Lion's fault, so why would they not make the L-2009MBP Logic Board compatible, and why are only a few people having this problem, well a lot more than a few, but I mean not everyone. 
    So I asked a friend about it, and we decided to run a back up, and erase the computer, and re-install Lion.  Figuring maybe my data was corrupted during install.  This helped for a day or two, and happened again.  So this time, we backed up only files (music, pics, documents, etc.,) and did a fresh install.  I got my computer back last night.  Now, I am not saying that didn't help.  Previously I would have frozen about 18 times well writing this, but I have not frozen once (hopefully I didn't just jinx myself).  I have gone from about one freeze every 10-15 minutes (sometimes worse), to about one every 1-3 hours.  Which, let's be honest is still a lot. 
    So, before I just decide to go and revert to Snow Leopard on my merry way, I ask, do any of you have any other ideas?  Or guarenteed fixes?  I know a guarentee is a hard thing to ask for, but I am desperate, my teachers are getting angry with me for not sending work, and I know this would help a lot of people.  Thank you to those who read through my whole spiel, and thank you to those who will help me!
    [Ps, while I am somewhat of a noob, I know my way around a computer, so any help, or knowledge you could bestow upon me is awesome.  Especially DIY fixes.  (if your only advice is, don't buy a mac at Best Buy, don't bother commenting)]
    Macbook Pro
    15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009
    Processor:  2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

    Graphics:  NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB
    Software:  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 (11C74)

    Once it is downloaded you need to restart the computer if it does not restart automatically. When it next starts up you should note a progress bar appearing below the Apple logo. When done the computer will restart once more. The new firmware should now be installed.

    1. This procedure is a diagnostic test. It changes nothing, for better or worse, and therefore will not, in itself, solve the problem. But with the aid of the test results, the solution may take a few minutes, instead of hours or days.
    Don't be put off merely by the seeming complexity of these instructions. The process is much less complicated than the description. You do harder tasks with the computer all the time.
    2. If you don't already have a current backup, back up all data before doing anything else. The backup is necessary on general principle, not because of anything in the test procedure. Backup is always a must, and when you're having any kind of trouble with the computer, you may be at higher than usual risk of losing data, whether you follow these instructions or not.
    There are ways to back up a computer that isn't fully functional. Ask if you need guidance.
    3. Below are instructions to run a UNIX shell script, a type of program. As I wrote above, it changes nothing. It doesn't send or receive any data on the network. All it does is to generate a human-readable report on the state of the computer. That report goes nowhere unless you choose to share it. If you prefer, you can read it yourself without disclosing the contents to me or anyone else.
    You should be wondering whether you can believe me, and whether it's safe to run a program at the behest of a stranger. In general, no, it's not safe and I don't encourage it.
    In this case, however, there are a couple of ways for you to decide whether the program is safe without having to trust me. First, you can read it. Unlike an application that you download and click to run, it's transparent, so anyone with the necessary skill can verify what it does.
    You may not be able to understand the script yourself. But variations of the script have been posted on this website thousands of times over a period of years. The site is hosted by Apple, which does not allow it to be used to distribute harmful software. Any one of the millions of registered users could have read the script and raised the alarm if it was harmful. Then I would not be here now and you would not be reading this message.
    Nevertheless, if you can't satisfy yourself that these instructions are safe, don't follow them. Ask for other options.
    4. Here's a summary of what you need to do, if you choose to proceed:
    ☞ Copy a line of text in this window to the Clipboard.
    ☞ Paste into the window of another application.
    ☞ Wait for the test to run. It usually takes a few minutes.
    ☞ Paste the results, which will have been copied automatically, back into a reply on this page.
    The sequence is: copy, paste, wait, paste again. You don't need to copy a second time. Details follow.
    5. You may have started the computer in "safe" mode. Preferably, these steps should be taken in “normal” mode, under the conditions in which the problem is reproduced. If the system is now in safe mode and works well enough in normal mode to run the test, restart as usual. If you can only test in safe mode, do that.
    6. If you have more than one user, and the one affected by the problem is not an administrator, then please run the test twice: once while logged in as the affected user, and once as an administrator. The results may be different. The user that is created automatically on a new computer when you start it for the first time is an administrator. If you can't log in as an administrator, test as the affected user. Most personal Macs have only one user, and in that case this section doesn’t apply. Don't log in as root.
    7. The script is a single long line, all of which must be selected. You can accomplish this easily by triple-clicking anywhere in the line. The whole line will highlight, though you may not see all of it in the browser window, and you can then copy it. If you try to select the line by dragging across the part you can see, you won't get all of it.
    Triple-click anywhere in the line of text below on this page to select it:

    exec bash
    and press return. Then paste the script again.
    10. If you're logged in as an administrator, you'll be prompted for your login password. Nothing will be displayed when you type it. You will not see the usual dots in place of typed characters. Make sure caps lock is off. Type carefully and then press return. You may get a one-time warning to be careful. If you make three failed attempts to enter the password, the test will run anyway, but it will produce less information. In most cases, the difference is not important. If you don't know the password, or if you prefer not to enter it, press the key combination control-C or just press return three times at the password prompt. Again, the script will still run.
    If you're not logged in as an administrator, you won't be prompted for a password. The test will still run. It just won't do anything that requires administrator privileges.
    11. The test may take a few minutes to run, depending on how many files you have and the speed of the computer. A computer that's abnormally slow may take longer to run the test. While it's running, there will be nothing in the Terminal window and no indication of progress. Wait for the line
    [Process completed]
    to appear. If you don't see it within half an hour or so, the test probably won't complete in a reasonable time. In that case, close the Terminal window and report the results. No harm will be done.
    12. When the test is complete, quit Terminal. The results will have been copied to the Clipboard automatically. They are not shown in the Terminal window. Please don't copy anything from there. All you have to do is start a reply to this comment and then paste by pressing command-V again.
    At the top of the results, there will be a line that begins with the words "Start time." If you don't see that, but instead see a mass of gibberish, you didn't wait for the "Process completed" message to appear in the Terminal window. Please wait for it and try again.
    If any private information, such as your name or email address, appears in the results, anonymize it before posting. Usually that won't be necessary.
    13. When you post the results, you might see an error message on the web page: "You have included content in your post that is not permitted," or "You are not authorized to post." That's a bug in the forum software. Please post the test results on Pastebin, then post a link here to the page you created.
    14. This is a public forum, and others may give you advice based on the results of the test. They speak only for themselves, and I don't necessarily agree with them.

  • Acrobat Reader 9.1.x freezes after startup

    Our Acrobat Reader is having problems on some machines during startup that it completly freezes after startup.
    I've traced this with procmon and have seens that a certain file "sharedEvents" is trying to to somthing buth it is hanging on
    lock - unlock. Killing All process of Acrobat Reader and deleting this file and then re-starting the program isn't helping because it keeps 0 kb and the mentioned behaviour is trying to do something with this file.
    the file can be found in %appdata%\adobe\acrobat\9.0
    Our profile's is redirected , it is working for most of the users but some users are having this problem.
    Can anybody tell me what Acrobat Reader is doing with this file and is there a work around to initialize everything back again so the
    user can startup the program normally so it is not freezing after startup without having to remove and install it back again ?
    Best regards,

    The problem I'm having is a problem on the journal file. After some more investigating it look that the problem can be related to oplocks since we have enbaled oplocks on our server (were the file is placed trough folder redirection). We will check this ...
    I've already disabled oplocks on client side and then everything is working however we are using Vista in combination with offline files and if you disbale oplocks then offline files will not work so we are looking a bith further to see what we can do on server side ... to be continued ...
    Best regards,

  • Bootcamp 'Glowing' windows logo freeze after gfx driver install

    Bootcamp 'Glowing' windows logo freeze after gfx driver install
    Last week suddenly, after having changed or installed nothing, trying to boot into windows resulted in a frozen glowy window logo 'Starting Windows', which resulted in having to format the windows partition.
    Since then I've found out that I can do everything except install gfx drivers.
    I've installed firefox, all bootcamp drivers except gfx, swtor (doesn't run of course, but installs fine), quicktime, rebooting is fine after all this...
    But as soon as I install any kind of graphics driver and reboot, it freezes at the glowy window logo.
    I have tried;
    The bootcamp included gfx driver
    Windows Update included gfx driver
    Official nVidia latest beta driver
    Official nVidia latest whql driver
    Official nVidia oldest whql driver
    nVidia Cuda driver, both versions
    All give the same result
    I have formatted the entire harddrive and written zeros and made the windows partition in a physically different location to make sure it's not a harddrive issue, no luck.
    I have tried both Windows 7 x86 and x64 with matching drivers, same results.
    Tried booting with no devices attached, no luck.
    This all seems to me like a bust gfx card, were it not that under Lion everything works fine, even gaming (WoW).
    Techtool Pro's test machine shows no errors.
    My machine is a;
    24-inch, Early 2008
    Processor  3,06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Geheugen  4 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    Videokaart  NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GS 512 MB
    Software  Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11D50b)
    Modelnaam: iMac
    Modelaanduiding: iMac8,1
    Processornaam: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processorsnelheid: 3,06 GHz
    Aantal processors: 1
    Totale aantal cores: 2
    L2-cache: 6 MB
    Geheugen: 4 GB
    Bussnelheid: 1,07 GHz
    Opstart-ROM-versie: IM81.00C1.B00
    SMC-versie (systeem): 1.30f1

    I am running Lion on a Mac Mini Server wherein I placed a Bootcamp partition and installed Windows 7 Ultimate. I've been testing Windows Media Center using a CableCard Tuner installed in a SiliconDust HomeRun box.
    All was well until I received a Windows notification of an NVIDIA driver update. After the update, I now freeze at the same point that you do in the Windows startup splash screen.
    I rolled back the driver using the Windows control panel associated with the device. Still freezes.
    Windows repair does not have a fix. I can't get windows to start in "safe mode" so I can remove the additional apps that NVIDIA installed during the update.
    I'm certain the freeze is associated with the NVIDIA driver.

  • Help! Lightroom freezes after installing.

    I get this message after trying to create or open a catalog: "An error occured when attemting to change modules." Then Lightroom freezes.
    I work on a Mac and have formatted and reinstalled my systemdisk with a qlean install. I had Lightroom installed and have used it for some years. But when installing the programs again I went for the Creative Cloud solution. When I tried to open my previous catalog I got this error message. And after several deinstallings and reinstallings I still get the same message and Lightroom freezes.
    Anyone who can help?

    Hi Ian.
    Thank you for answering. But I find no such file in Preferences. I think Lightroom freezes before making the preference file. Other solutions?
    Best wishes,

  • Freezes after setting ISO in camera app

    The phone freezes after the following:
    1. Set ISO to 800 in manual mode click a picture or two.
    2. See the images from preview panel in camera app(touch bottom right of image)
    3. Get back to camera.
    The only way to get back is to restart the phone using hard keys.

    Last thing you can try, repair your phone with SUS or PCC and stay away from taskillers, task managers, antivirus, ram apps, booster apps, etc
    Update Service (SUS)
    PC Companion (PCC)

  • Macbook pro freezes after sleep, after 6 months of not having that problem

    I'm really frustated with my macbook pro. Like the tittle says, my computer freezes after waking up and the only thing to do is use the On/Off button. It is a macbook pro '13 2010.
    This problem first happened around 6 months ago. Around Feb '11, i experienced the same issue. First thing i noticed was that the wifi suddenly stopped working. To try to fix it, I turned airport off and then couldn't turn it back on and had to restart my machine. Then when closing the lid and then opening it again, my computer would work for about 5 min and then freeze. Nothing worked and I had to shut it down using the power button.  Then the problem got worse because the computer started freezing randomly. I know it wasn't an application problem because it happened using different apps. I took my computer to an authorized apple service provider and they told me the harddrive had some bad sectors i think, and they replaced the harddrive because I was still under earranty at the time.
    Now, Sept '11, the problem came back. First the airport problem happened and now my computer freezes when waking up, the exact same thing that happened 6 months ago. I went to disk utility and repaired disk permisions and still no solution. My warranty expired last month so calling apple won't be of any help. I installed lion the day it came out and was working without any problems until now, so I don't think lion is the problem.
    Has anybody had this same problem with their computer? I don't know what to do or how to tell if my harddrive is causing the problem again.

    All of the new unibody MBs/MBPs can use (6GB 4X2GB)
    But yes you should definitely make sure the RAM is seated correctly and you didn't touch the gold part of the RAM during installation. Though if something was seriously wrong it would have made loud obnoxious sounds while you tried to start up.
    Aside from Installation issues, you should reset the PRAM as noted previously. Hold down command-option-p-r at startup until it chimes twice.
    OP, looking at Super Talent's website they don't even have 1066MHz chips listed in their DDR3 chips. All I see is a jump from 800MHz (DDR2) to 1333MHz (DDR3).
    Either way, I can't imagine you got that great a deal for the RAM that even if it is seemingly the correct RAM you can get better deals in the links I posted in my other post.

  • Freeze after import from built-in iSight

    I go to File > Import from Camera..., record my lovely visage, and then I click Done. iMovie imports the new video just fine, I see it pop up in the little clips tray, but then I'm faced with a problem.
    The capture window is still open and if I click the "Done" button or close the capture window, iMovie just freezes and I have to force quit.
    When I re-open iMove, everything is fine, my project and the new clip still exist, but I've just wasted a lot of time.
    It happens every time and it's really frustrating. What's going on?
    Console offers little of interest...

    Message was edited by: Iynque

    There are a few other threads out there based on iMovie freezing after importing, but most are people importing from other devices, not the built-in iSight camera. None has any good advice about how to correct it, that I can see.
    I suppose the good news is it's not a problem endemic to the iSight camera capture option itself. I'm willing to bet it has something to do with disk fragmentation or dropped frames during capture -any of which a standard NLE would tell you about instead of crashing.
    I guess the usual salvo of countermeasures are called for: verify the target volume using disk utility, defragment the drive, try building a new user account on your Mac and try the capture again (just to rule out any unruly preferences in your current config). Worst case, reinstall iMovie and see if it keeps happening. Now, having said all that, I haven't actually taken the time to try it myself. So, grain of salt, and all that.

  • IBooks 3.1.3 freezes after opening on ios 5.1.1(iPad 1)

    I have an iPad 1(iOS 5.1.1) with iBooks 3.1.3. I mostly use the Pad for reading books and browsing.
    I faced no problems whatsoever with iBooks in the past but since last night(17 Feb, 2015) iBooks freezes after a minute or two. I can open books during this timeframe but the pages freeze and I can neither flip to another page nor go back to the library.
    Initially I thought it must be because of low memory but I have a 64GB iPad and there is over 25GB of available memory.
    I reset the iPad several times, no luck there. I read somewhere that sometimes a specific books(or books) cause iBooks to crash but I don't think that is the issue as I haven't added any new books for over 2 weeks now.
    I should also mention that I did connect the iPad to iTunes yesterday in order to sync two movies but all other syncs were turned off.
    I'm really frustrated at this point and I'll be grateful for any input.
