Actually this malloc error comes every time I open Max! I’ve tested it on two computers (iMac and Macbook Pro) running different versions (5.1.2 on the iMac and 5.17 on the Macbook), but both where running Snow Leopard
Hmm, ok. But it’s still weird that the malloc error shows EVERY time Max is started (before any patches are opened). The patch I’m having trouble with is really big, but I don’t believe it to be very memory hungry. It uses Csound (with a special build of csound~) and there seems to be some problems on the Csound side aswell. I’m currently trying to build a new build with the updated source code for csound~ (1.1.0) to see if this might make it more stable.
I’ve also had trouble with Csound which produces a "broken pipe" error which leads to a "bus error" which is a new error with Snow Leopard, but there is obviously something going on with Max as well since this big patch still crashes after I have removed both the csound-external and the Csound frameworks (i.e. no way that Csound can start). Still Max crashes and sometimes causes Live to crash as well. Here is the report from the last crash:
