Midnight, hour of the crash


    Mar 26 2010 | 9:19 am
    Hi It can be a coincidence but a patch of mine is playing 3 or 4 times a week on show for two month and it crashes on march the 4 and the 24 at 22:37:52 and 22:38:36. Aparently all the automatic tasks are disabled but perhaps do I forget something.
    A strange thing about these crashes : the screen was black - no message, no finder… but the computer was still on.
    The only other thing I can think about : that's a moment in the show where light people and sound people interract together on the patch. Light configures omx via Art-net (DMX via ethernet)and sound loads some buffers. Can I have a problem of priority or something ?
    thanks a lot for any clue

    PS_I join one of the crash report. Both are exactly the same.

      The crash seems to be related to udpreceive.

      Thanks A LOT Patrick Can I ask you why you think the udpreceive is the problem ? The Mac pro I use for this patch was set up in 10.6 but I needed udp and it didn't work. I installed a clone copy of a 10.5.8 system and everything was ok… except these crash

      it will ound silly but i want to say it : isn't your "crash" related to you having programmed your computer to shut down or sleep mode on 22:38 ? :)

      maybe you leant those kind of things by "disabled automatic tasks". so it's even sillier. never mind.
