Warning X crashes during configuration of Geant4 on Mac OS X 10.7 

Forum: Installation and Configuration
Date: 11 Jul, 2011
From: Mojca Miklavec <Mojca Miklavec>


while trying to configure the latest beta version of Geant on Mac OS X, the X server crashes as soon as I select "yes" for Qt. The crash happens both with 9.4p02 and 9.5b01. Later I realized that I installed 1GB SDK from
instead of
After installing the second one it works now, but I still think that the crash should not happen. (Not sure if crash is a problem with Apple or with Geant4 though.)
