I’m trying to run jMonkeyPlatform 3.0 on my Macbook Pro running OSX 10.9.3, but it freezes at the ‘starting modules’ portion of the startup screen. I noticed that if I run it from a terminal as root (via sudo) it starts up and seems to run, but will freeze (spinning pinwheel, jmonkey platform listed as ‘not responding’ in force quit menu) whenever I try to change preferences, add shaders, or do anything that would require the project metadata files to be modified. I tried installing and running jMP on a MacMini also running 10.9.3 and I didn’t experience the ‘starting modules’ freeze but DID experience the project modification freeze. The only difference between the systems is the JDK version, 1.7.0_45 on the laptop where nothing works without root, and 1.6.0_65 on the MacMini. The logs state that both instances of jMP use a bundled 1.7.0_51 anyway, so I doubt that matters. Neither generated any logged errors, but I’ll attach the full logs from each just in case there is something useful I’m missing.
Here are the detailed system specs for each device:
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTE 650M
Problem: jMP freezes during startup at ‘starting modules’ unless it is run as root from the terminal. Even then it freezes on project modifications
GPU: Intel HD Graphics 4000
Problem: jMP freezes on project modifications
Any help would be much appreciated!
