osx lion vs. 1.10.7

Post by mymkv » Sun Nov 12, 2017 1:59 pm

1.10.7 does not work with osx lion.
1.10.6 is still working fine.

"iokit/common can't wire down physical memory"

no longer support to osx lion 10.7 ?

Download page says:
Requires x64 Mac OS X 10.6 or later.
So it should work.
Memory Descriptors and Memory Cursors
In a preemptive multitasking operating system with built-in virtual memory, I/O transfers require special
preparation and post-completion processing:
● The space needed for an I/O transfer must reside in physical memory and must be wired down so it can’t
be paged out until the transfer completes.
● The virtual memory addresses used by software must be converted to physical addresses, and the buffer
addresses and lengths must be collected into the scatter/gather lists that describe the data to be transferred.
● After the transfer completes, the memory must be unwired so it can be paged out.
This excerpt from the Apple IOKit manual indicates that this issue may be related to whether or not you're running MakeMKV with administrative privileges; It's not being allowed to request the "wiring" mentioned above.

Is 1.10.7 installed the same way as 1.10.6 was? Or are you running it from the .dmg file?
