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-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 While Attempting to Get Mesh Estimatesg

  • SH-2201 Crash when attempting to get mesh estimates

Some Users Will Be Unable to Upload Mesh After Completing the Tutorial
