A few months ago, someone posted comments on my “OS Images vs. The Santa Rosa MacBook Pro 2.2/2.4Ghz” article stating that PowerPoint would crash in slide mode on non-Santa Rosa machines when using an image that was created or updated on a SR machine. At the time, I was unable to reproduce it but now we’re seeing it all over.
This issue is caused by the version of OpenGL that is included with Santa Rosa machines. The fix is to replace the /System/Library/Framworks/OpenGL.framework with one from a non-SR OS. I packaged it up and configured the installer to not install on SR machines and only install on 10.4.10 or 10.4.11. I’d post it here, but Apple seems to have some rules against that. 🙂
