Thread: Sierra - 10.12 Any issues

    Sierra - 10.12 Any issues

    Is anybody running catalyst 5 on the new operating system, and if so is there any issues?
    I'm about to buy in some new macs and was wondering if it's a case of having to downgrade the OS for anything running catalyst or can I safely start using 10.12, which is preferable, due to a multitude of other software we use.

    Have been testing Catalyst V5 with 10.12.0 on a MacPro 6,1 with D700 and it seems to be working fine.

    Setup:
    3.5G 6Core MacPro 6,1
    16GB RAM, 256GB FS Dual FirePro D700 GPU 6GB
    using 6x startech active MDP-DVI 2m cables connected to a Lightware 16x16 DVI PRO Matrix (EDID 1920x1080@50)

    Have tested the following OS and these are my observations:
    (note - these may differ to your experience depending upon hardware setup and configuration - IF IN DOUBT - TEST)

    10.9.5 -
    works ok. Sometimes issues with OS not recognising multiple monitors at startup, usually fixed by a restart. (or PRAM restart)
    USB drivers for audio can be problematic is a USB device is removed. (ie audio stops)

    10.10.5 -
    works ok. But seems to mirror every startup when multiple monitors are connected. Only way to resolve seems to be re-order in system preferences.
    USB drivers for audio can be problematic is a USB device is removed. (ie audio stops)

    10.11.6 -
    works ok. multiple monitors come back the same at startup
    USB drivers for audio still problematic, but less so than above - only small drop-out when a USB device is disconnected (ie keyboard)

    10.12.0 -
    works ok. multiple monitors come back the same at startup
    USB drivers for audio still problematic, but less so than above - only small drop-out when a USB device is disconnected (ie keyboard)
    Also seems to resolve issue with blank 'Preset Edit' window with n561

    Generally - seems to be no performance difference between OS versions.

    The later versions of OS have more 'enhancements' to disable:
    - Disable Spotlight
    - Disable Dashboard
    - Disable Notification Centre
    - Disable Mission Control and Spaces
    - Disable Energy Saver
    - Disable Screen saver
    - Disable Time Machine
    - Disable Software Update
    - Disable App Nap
    - Disable Siri (10.12.0)
    - Enable 'Allow apps from registered developer / anywhere'

    TEST THOROUGHLY OFFLINE BEFORE USE CHANGING OS

    That is interesting, I was having a ton of instability with El Capitan. Catalyst would regularly freeze... I rolled back to 10.9.5 but I do have the issue you described where sometimes it just does not recognize 1 monitor in a multi-monitor setup and I have to manually unplug cables... Very annoying.

    I have just a problem when i want to quit catalyst V5 under os 10.12. I get an error, and the preferences are not saved.

    I have found with 10.12.2 doing anything with Exact maps makes Catalyst 561 unstable and crash or crash on save.

    In my testing if this starts happening, and I then go and delete my exact map, everything goes back to happy.

    Cheers
