Summary 0003727: intermittent crashes on Intel Macs when using OpenAL
Description Croquet worlds with OpenAL sounds crash intermittently on Intel-flavored Macs, but work everywhere else. The crash seesm to be caused by a bug in the OpenAL libraries that Apple is currently shipping with MacOS. We are not the only ones seeing this problem, see http://www.idevgames.com/forum/showthread.php?p=114850 [^] for instance.

We need to look into compiling a fixed OpenAL library and using that while waiting for Apple to get its act together.

Problem fixed!

A copy of the 3.8.12b5 VM for the Macintosh that includes an
OpenAL framework compiled from the latest OpenAL development
branch can be found at

a new VM that looks in the application bundle for an OpenAL framework, and a compiled from the current development version of OpenAL fixed the problem. Maybe Apple will update the OpenAL they include with MacOS at some point... meanwhile, this works.
