I am cautious to say that I had a full day yesterday working trouble free with my current set up of the Mac Pro running 10.5.4, the Cintiq 20WSX with Driver 6.08-2 (RC), and Adobe Flash CS3. I was doing mostly posing and was treading a bit lightly, but still it was promising to see that I got through the day without any incidence since the last one I had here.
I was starting to think that I was the only one running this set up because anytime I search google for “Mac Pro and Cintiq crashing”, it only led me back to my blog! I really wanted to know if any one out there has the same set up as mine to find out if they too were having the same issues as I had.
So far, I have not heard from any one else. It might be that most of them are really busy with what they were doing that they have no time to go online. One that really makes me shudder is that maybe they are having a grand time with their set up and have no troubles at all. I definitely envy them!
I posted my troubles in Apple’s own discussion forum. I had a number of responses, but not enough to give me a definite answer to why my crashes occurred and how to completely eliminate them in the future. The thread can be found here. It gave small consolation that some do run a set up almost similar to mine, albeit with a different Mac Pro and Cintiq model.
I hesitate to say that what I am seeing from running this current set up right now is encouraging because I was burned before when I did that. I will keep on monitoring this set up and hopefully the stability that I am experiencing will continue on.
Oh, I have to point out that right after I rebooted from the crash I had that day, I immediately did a Repair Disk Permission. Just a note in case that helped solved the instability.
