Any ideas of a fix? maybe 4.1.3 RC1 can help? Thanks in advance for your response
Currently, LO is released as a 32bit program on Mac OSX and consequently
requires a 32bit Java VM. Mountain Lion provides both 32bit and 64bit
versions of JVM, but I have no idea whether Maverick still continues to
provide that 32bit version of the Apple supplied JVM.
Additionally, there may simply be as yet undiscovered bugs in LO with
regard to Maverick. As far as I know, no one on the Mac dev team is
building LO on OSX Maverick (hardly surprising as it was only officially
released yesterday ?).
Alex, apologies for the cynicism, but they could have gotten a
developer's preview version of Mavericks before it was released. I have
two commercial programs installed here that did just that, so they could
have their software ready for the Mavericks release.
I doubt money would have been an issue, anyone upgrading to Mavericks
gets the new OS for free.
It is possible to obtain test releases of LO for
the 64bit architecture, but these are considered works in progress. Look
for the OSX daily builds with the x86_64 tag, there used to be at least
one machine producing them.
My own-built 64bit developer builds seem to work mostly OK, but I
haven't made the switch to Maverick yet.
Mac OS X 10.8.5
