KBcaution.png Important: Apple OS X Lion is -not yet- supported by the Second Life Viewer. While we fully intend to support this latest OS X release, we are still testing and working out some compatibility issues. So, until we can be certain that the new OS X will play well with Second Life, we recommend you not upgrade to OS X Lion.

Known Issues


Issues Relating to SLM Settings
If you experience problems with your SLM settings, try using the 'Set to defaults' button in the model uploader.

  • SH-2017 [SLM] Previously defined settings don't show in UI
  • SH-2209 [SLM] Pelvis offset setting not stored (or loaded) in SLM file

Mesh May Not Be Available the Session Following a Crash
If your prior Second Life session ended in a crash, mesh may not be available at the next login. The workaround is to restart Second Life and log back in.

  • SH-1030 [PUBLIC] Upload menu is missing the option to upload a Model (mesh capabilities released)

Upload Button Not Disabled During Mesh Upload
It is possible to click the upload button a second time while a model is already uploading. Doing so will not disrupt the upload underway. Some larger meshes may take as long as 60 seconds to upload. During the upload process, an icon will appear in the upper-right of the viewer UI. As soon as the upload is complete, the icon will disappear.

  • SH-2064 Disable 'Upload' button once the upload has started

Cannot Upload Mesh While Standing On No-Build Land

  • SH-1941 [PUBLIC] Mesh upload options do not appear when avatar is on land that does not allow building

Specifying Manual LODs With Multiple Meshes May Not Be Handled Correctly

  • SH-2109 [PUBLIC] Mismatch of LOD meshes in multi-object upload (linkset) yields viewer crash
  • SH-2110 [PUBLIC] Accept LOD-meshes with different order of objects in the dae files
  • SH-2266 [CTS-670] Meshes of lower LOD being resized to bounds of highest LOD

Mesh Upload Error Detail Missing from Error Dialog
Upload errors are detailed in the Second Life log file, but not listed explicitly in the UI (which only shows a very general failure message)

Viewer May Crash After Acknowledging an Error Dialog

  • SH-2234 Viewer crashes after acknowledging error dialog

Some Users Will Be Unable to Upload Mesh After Completing the Tutorial.
This is a known, temporary issue for a small subset of Second Life users. If it happens to you, please contact Customer Support. (Internal Note: users on the old billing system aren't recognized as having current payment info on file)

  • SH-2165 [CTS-717] Mesh Status did not change after completing entire Mesh IP Tutorial with score of 100% + answertable displaying 11 or 12 correct answers from only 10 possible questions
