Everything's invisible!


(jtdoepke) #1

It’s the oddest thing. I run Blender 2.37a on Mac OS X 10.4.3 and every thing is invisible! Let me elaborate: Blender will start up with out a hitch, but aside from changing the view and manipulating the object (rotate, grab, resize, etc.) none of Blender’s function will visibly change in real time. For example: if I click on the file menu, I will not be able to see it, but if I click where ‘New File’ should be it will, indeed, open a new file. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

That’s definitely a bug.
Submit it, along with incidentals about your OS and video hardware, to the bug tracker (if it’s not already there).

I looked it up on the bug tracker. It turns out the latest update to OS X 10.4.3 disabled the glDrawbuffer(GL_FRONT) which is used for interacting with the menus in Blender.
