There is a large highlighted first line of the installation instructions "You must have Java 7+ installed on your system in order to run Alda." So install the JDK (not JRE) from Oracle as per Oracle's comment The Java Runtime (JRE) that you download from java.com or oracle.com contains a plugin to run Java content from your browser. In order to use the ...

You can definitely buy the requisite parts aftermarket - DigiKey would be the first place I would look. You could also remove the parts from another rMBP (e.g. flood damaged or something). You can probably do the modification without damaging other things on the board, but it would be difficult. You are not going to do it at home. You're going to need ...

I don't think this will be possible. The board will be manufactured with only that size of memory in mind, so the memory controller or other hardware would have to be changed too, and its not like there will be place for more memory chips. One exception I can think of is if some higher model has more memory, then there might be some unpopulated place for ...

The short answer is yes (anything is possible), but is it feasible? There's a ton of responses out there whether you can/cannot resolder memory chips to Apple logic boards in an attempt to upgrade RAM. Unfortunately, there is a lot of mis-information out there. Basically, they all revolve around one of the following three themes: It's extremely ...

I run CS5 on a 9 year old 4GB machine and it works great on 10.10. By just limiting what else I run, I am able to keep my memory pressure in the green despite also having the current World of Warcraft client up. Surprisingly, web apps are total pigs - a well used Youtube window in a web browser can gobble over a gig. CS3 is built with lower capacity ...

It looks like you're running Mavericks (10.9.5) based on the screenshot you provided. That being said, why would you want to downgrade to Snow Leopard (10.6.x)? Yes, it is probably a touch faster than Mavericks, but it isn't supported anymore and doesn't have the memory compression feature that might help a bit for a memory hungry application like CS3. ...

Bing is your friend... Adobe CS3 System Requirements Specifically, regarding the RAM needed: 1GB of RAM for DV; 2GB of RAM for HDV and HD; more RAM recommended when running multiple components Photos in iPhoto are stored on your drive, not continually stored in memory. This is irrelevant. You didn't mention what Mac you have. This is important ...

(Note: This may be a bit opinionated due to the nature of this question, and I'll mostly focus on photo editing.) From what I have seen, (at least on Photoshop) RAM and SSDs are the most important. There have been people who have run on i5s and get by just as well. If you can avoid it, don't get the Non-Retina (i.e. get the Retina) especially because you ...

Regarding procps-ng - it doesn't make sense to install it on OS X. The utilities in procps-ng are specifically made to parse, interpret and display information from the /proc file system on Linux system. The /proc virtual file system on Linux exposes various information from the kernel itself (and kernel extensions). OS X does not run on the Linux kernel. ...

This wonderful Apple Support article says it all: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201464#memory I'll give the short version here: There are three different types of memory, as you have noticed - wired, app, and compressed. Each of these types do something slightly different. Wired memory Wired memory refers to memory that cannot be taken out from RAM. ...

I was having this problem with some VBR MP3s I ripped a decade ago with LAME 3.92. The problem went away when I converted them to fixed rate MP3s in iTunes (File > Convert) iTunes 12.4.1.6, Mac OS X 10.11.5

My best practice is to think about how to get the best use of your RAM and not make configuration decisions that lock down memory and instead monitor for problems on each OS and then make small adjustments. On the Mac - open Activity monitor and watch the memory pressure. I would try to keep things in Green. If you are in the orange, that's ok, but you ...

The problem you are experiencing is an issue known by Apple. It is an issue that plagued the 2010 MacBook Pro models (especially the 15" versions). The issue is called intermittent black screen or loss of video. At one point in time they had a replacement program for the affect models. They have discontinued that and all 2010 models are now in Vintage mode....

2012 MacBook Pro 13" specification states that it supports 1600 MHz RAM. So, Kingston modules do not have an advantage, as the memory will run at 1600 MHz. Purely, from numbers point of view, your geekbench results point to Crucial being faster. However, I suspect it is due to variance. You can try to rerun the same test several times and see how the scores ...

As a general rule, you can mix sticks of RAM as far as brands/speeds/timings/sizes. Your computer should accommodate different speeds/timings by scaling down speeds/timings on the faster sticks until they match the slower sticks. Brands will matter as far as they do for everything else: everyone wants you to buy their brand of stuff, but they'll ...

According to Everymac, that's what it takes... RAM Type: PC3-8500 DDR3 Min. RAM Speed: 1066 MHz Details: Supports 1066 MHz PC3-8500 DDR3 SO-DIMMs (204-pin). Standard RAM: 4 GB Maximum RAM: 16 GB

As noted by Apple here: Activity Monitor may show that a process named kernel_task is using a large percentage of your CPU, and during this time you may notice a lot of fan activity. This process helps manage temperature by making the CPU less available to processes that are using the CPU intensely. In other words, kernel_task responds to conditions that ...
