OS X Mavericks :: No More Program Memory On IMac

Sep 2, 2014

I have gotten this message a few times now. in a small pop-up window. I have however lots of free space. Over 1 TB on both my internal drive and on my backup.

Have checked for software updates. I don't have any antivirus programs or other such stuff. It happens when I have Final Cut Pro X open. Also happened when I was using Aperture. In other words no third party programs.

OS X Mavericks :: Selective Routing Causing (out Of Memory)

Jun 30, 2014

I've got two interfaces, in this order: 

1. Wi-Fi connection to Apple time capsule that links to the internet - 

2. LAN connection to ISP that links to the internet - 

This works perfectly well, however, I would like to rout traffic through the second link, not just have it as a fail-over. 

So, I use the route command, like this: route -n add -host -n add -host -n add -host 

This doesn't give any errors and a netstat -nr shows         UGHS            0        1     en0197.242.144.175         UGHS            0        0     en0173.194.41.182         UGHS            0       12     en0 

If, though, I try trace route, this is what I get: traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packetstraceroute: sendto: Cannot allocate memory1 traceroute: wrote 52 chars, ret=-1 

It looks as if, somehow, the route command is corrupting the normal routin

OS X Mavericks :: Runs Out Of Application Memory During Sleep

Aug 27, 2014

Shortly after updating:

Safari (to 7.0.6)

Java (to version 7 update 67)

Pages (5.2.2, which has "An error has occurred" note in the purchases section of my App Store application)

Keynote (6.2.2)

Numbers (also has "An error has occurred" note in the "Purchases section" of my App Store application, and while it shows "installed" in same section, Numbers does not appear on the recently updated list in the "Updates" section)

and iMovie (10.0.5)

I also recall an Adobe update occurring (Macromedia?). 

I began experiencing slow wake-from-sleep behavior. More recently, I have been getting "out of application memory" dialogs upon waking from sleep. There have also been a couple instances where the computer would not wake and had to be restarted. At one point, without having gotten the "out of application memory" dialog, I did note that virtual memory had ballooned to over 14 GB. That stayed like that until I logged out and logged back in. 

This behavior seems to be specific to a user account (did not repeat when logged in as admin for one overnight test, but haven't tried an all day admin login).

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling BOINC, as well as removing an Adobe Resource Synchronizer app from the user login items (given the recent Adobe update, and having read that said item could cause trouble). 

So, I'm not sure how to proceed beyond offering the reports below:

OS X Mavericks :: How To Clear / Reset Nonfunctional Login Memory

Aug 25, 2014

Some of my automatic logins that the mac remembers are incorrect and my issue is that when updated, are somehow not retained in the autologin.  This means the feature is often useless and causes ultra frustration as I rely on it heavily.  

How do I reset the disfunctional logins, or will I have to clear them all and start over, gah?  It does not happen on all of them

IMac (Intel) :: OS X Mavericks (10.9.4) Memory Card Reader Not Detected

Sep 7, 2014

I have an iMac, early 2009 OS X 10.9.4. Up until a few months ago I didn't have a problem with my memory card reader. The computer no longer detects the memory card reader. There is no indication by the computer that the memory card read has been plugged in. I bought a new memory card reader (different brand). The computer does not detect the new memory card reader. I have tried rebooting the computer. That did not make a difference. I tried unplugging all the USB devices plugged into the computer. That did not work

Aug 26, 2010

I have a iMac DV G3/500 (Special Edition) from summer 2000. Anyway, I am using Mac OS 10.2.8. Recently, my start up disk's memory has gone done from 1.2 GB available free space to 668MB (currently).

OS X :: Adding Memory And Then Running The Memory Utility Application?

Mar 21, 2009

I just bought a early 2009 MAC Pro and it came with 3GB of RAM, I ordered 3 2GB sticks of memory to replace the 3 1GB sticks that I had in there from Kingston. I turned off the unit, I popped the little levers and pulled the memory out of slot 1, 2, 3 and then replaced the memory with the new Kingston in slot 1, 2, 3

One of the sticks in is not working at all and I get the RED LED light no matter what slot I move that chip to. So I am running on 2 of the new Kingston memory chips.

Can I mix the memory and add the 1GB into slot 3 and 4 with slot 1 and 2 full of 2GB chips?

Also how to I run the memory utility again? I went to /system/Library/CoreServices/ and then I see the program Memory Slot Utility.app

How do I run this? I'm used to no spaces and I type ./then program name

OS X :: Memory Keep Disappearing Day By Day / 1 Giga Of Memory Left From 2 Giga

Apr 14, 2010

I'm new to mac and I've noticed that I can have 2 gigs of memory one day and the next I'm down to 24 or something!I've noticed that if I open a file in Itunes and then change the info that there are now 2 files in the finder, one with the old info and the new with the new metadata. Why does OS-X do that?!

Also, if I have 1 gig of memory left (out of 180 or so) why does it disappear to 0 if I open photoshop? I'm used to a PC running virtual memory and CPU but why does the Mac actually take away my available memory?I'm at my wits end here, it's been driving me up the wall for weeks!

Mac Pro :: How Much Memory Is Enough

Sep 27, 2010

Im trying to figure out how much memory to order for my mac pro which will be ordered soon. I know the more the better but there must come to a point where it makes little difference?

My primary uses are lightroom, photoshop (amateur/prosumer level) as well as running windows XP and possibly 7 inside Fusion.

Would 8gb be enough or would 12 make a substantial difference ?

Is there a big real world difference between running in dual or triple channel?

Mac Pro :: FCP 4GB RAM Limit - Out Of Memory

Mar 27, 2008

So my last project - the first one on my new 3.2 octo with 20 GB RAM - and I'm getting out of memory errors in FCP. I thought at first it was a permissions or bad preferences problem, but it turns out that I actually pushed Final Cut too far and it exceeded it's 4GB RAM limit. does anyone have any info from Apple about when they might upgrade FCP to use more RAM?

does anyone know how much memory would the PowerBook G4 (the very last one, 1.67GHz with DL SD and 15" HD) take?

apple- says 2GB, but is that limited by the motherboard or by the fact that when this machine went out of production, 2GB sticks weren't available yet?

Mac Pro :: Using Virtual Memory To Another HD?

Apr 5, 2008

I thought I read awhile back someone posted on how to move the virtual memory to another hard drive. Now, I could be wrong, so I did a search and couldn't find the thread. So my question is on my Mac Pro, I have three HDs. 350GB that has OS. 500GB that is free. 1TB that has data. Is there a way to move the paging file (VM) so that it is being used on the 500GB hd?

Mac Pro :: 4GB Memory Shows Up As 2GB?

Apr 23, 2008

I have just installed 2 x 2 GB Memory from OWC in my new Mac Pro (early 2008). I have followed the video on OWS�s website in terms of where they should be placed!

Here is what I have tried:

Apple 2 x 1GB in Riser A slots 1 & 2

OWC 2 x 2GB in Riser B slots 1 & 2

OWC 2 x 2GB in Riser A slots 1 & 2

Apple 2 x 1GB in Riser B slots 1 & 2

(It should be 6GB in total)

Both options only show up as 4GB in total, where the OWC is 1GB each. Have tried to reset the PRAM, without any luck.

I then tried to take out the Apple memory, so only the new OWC was in and this then showed up as 3GB. Switched them around ant still only 3GB, but in a different order in the riser! So one on the OWC memory sticks must be faulty.
