Hi Henri

I can't start Cool Viewer anymore since updating to MacOS Sierra. No logs are generated but the system logs show this

Cool VL Viewer[1678]: Cool VL Viewer(1678,0xa50c11c0) malloc: *** malloc_zone_unregister() failed for 0xa50b9000

Any idea how to solve this quick and make useable build? I'd hate being stuck on firestorm for long :)

I don't have a single clue of what it is all about... You'll have to ask on a Mac forum, I guess. Probably some breakage in backward compatibility with old Mac binaries...

It's not a viewer bug however.

You may try and compile the viewer without jemalloc (edit indra/cmake/00-BuildOptions.cmake), since it's the malloc replacement in use by default for Mac builds, but you will loose the memory safety checks and get crashes whenever the virtual address space will be exhausted or will get too fragmented.

Yea compiling without did the trick.

Seems there is a patch in the making for this issue:
