TOPIC: MacOS ... Sonoma 14.0

MacOS ... Sonoma 14.0 27 Sep 2023 16:21 #1

I just upgraded MacBook Pro intel to Sonoma ... all "graphics" of ESDR3 control panel ... disappeared
My suspect is that it is just a "graphic" misbehaviour ... all functions are still there (I mean if you guess where the buttons are) ... but no buttons, no waterfall, nothing

See attached pictures.

My findings:

1. On Intel MBP - confirmed Apple did break it. I was unable to get Launcher rendered correctly:

However it is possible to start main windows with all elements correctly rendered and working.

Press START button in Laucher first - it will render incorrectly:

Press STOP button in Laucher and after main window completely closed - press START in Laucher again, now it is loaded OK:

2. On M1 MBP it seems to be loading OK - I have tested it on VM under UTM. Loads right from start with no issues:

Recommendation so far are very obvious: never load first issue of new macOS with x.0.0. Wait till new build stabilises (aka Apple found and fix all their shit). Good practice is always keep it n-1 for working machines. Even tested on M1 VM - I still would not trust it myself and will not recommend anyone to upgrade, at least before 14.0.1.

Downgrade to 13.6 and keep it running untill further advise from EE.

Thanks Pavel for the "trick" ... I confirmed it works on my MBP as well.
Totally agree on suggestion "Recommendation so far are very obvious: never load first issue of new macOS with x.0.0 ... "
My post was just to point to an issue I noticed on my "upgraded" MPB ... while the other Mac's still on a more stable release

See you. Roberto - IK2NCA

I have exactly the same issue on an Intel iMac, except that I have been successfully running EESDR3 on Sonoma 14.0 until yesterday! I forget why, but I stopped the software for some reason and when I attempted to run it again I have the graphic problem described. Unfortunately, the stop -> start trick in launcher doesn't appear to work for me. Guess I will need to be patient and wait for an OS upgrade, I don't really want the hassle of returning to Big Sur.

An update, I have just tried the stop -> start trick again and this time it worked, perhaps it's something to do with the timing of the mouse click! Not stopping the software again for a while! Thanks for the tip Pavel, much appreciated.

Just upgraded to Sonoma 14.1 ... the "graphic" mess is still there (so I suspect Apple won't fix it any time soon).
The workaround still perfectly working ... it is a bit annoying but I can survive without any problem.

Hi
Any update on this issue?
Is it save to upgrade to Sonoma already?
Does EESDR3 v1.0.5 and its add-ons work with Sonoma?

Graphics are all fixed in 1.0.6 beta (built with Qt6.6.1). Tested in Sonoma 14.2.1 under Intel and Silicon HW)

MicPC access under Sonoma - there is some issue with requesting access. Please stand by, developers know about this and trying to fix it before 1/.0.6 beta public release.
