Prevent SkyMACMate from locking up on Intel Macs
Authored by: dirtymouse on May 13, '07 04:23:55AM

I have a USB-B2K RJ11 Skype phone adaptor which works fine, doesn't lock up the system, however the buggy software continually writs massive amounts of entries to console.log. It becomes about 10mb in size after about 15 minutes and gets bigger and bigger until i run out of memory. Perhaps the problem reported above, hence the lockup.

I'm using Mac OS X 10.4.9, Skype 2.5.085 and the dreaded SkypeMacMate driver v1.0.0.12

I've tried routing the log to dev null, using symbolic links for the console.log etc
and tried commenting out .err in /etc/syslog.conf to no avail...

that's from:
*.err;kern.*;auth.notice;authpriv,remoteauth,install.none;mail.crit /dev/console

to:

*;auth.notice;authpriv,remoteauth,install.none;mail.crit /dev/console

the error code is as follows (and i have plenty of memory left)


Skype(121,0x213ba00) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=1069056) failed (error code=3)
Skype(121,0x213ba00) malloc: *** error: can't allocate region
Skype(121,0x213ba00) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in szone_error to debug
Skype(121,0x213ba00) malloc: *** vm_allocate(size=1069056) failed (error code=3)

I wish that yealink would resolve this issue once and for all.
