Cassandra: Video update to 10.10.3 (and more)

By Graham K. Rogers


A problem that had been reported from some users of the 10.10.3 update to OS X Yosemite was the difficulty in starting (or re-starting) a Mac in some circumstances. There have also been reports of a kernel panic induced by accessing some JPG images. This includes the use of QuickLook and I experienced this a couple of days ago. I look at a number of images in this way and had not seen the problem before, so it is an occasional event. Nonetheless, it needs to be fixed.

Apple has released a Supplemental Update to OS X 10.10.3 which fixes the video driver issue that could cause a Mac to start when using certain apps that capture video. One down, one (or more) to go.

There are also reports this morning that a build (14E7f) of the 10.10.4 update has been made available to some developers.
