[Avid-L2] CalDigit Kext or extension takes down USB buss on Mac Trash Can

 

I think I bested my crash and burn record on the Sony Pictures lot last week.  While installing the driver for my Intuos 3 wacom tablet on a Mac Trash Can OS 13.6 IIRC I was asked to go to Security and Privacy to allow 3rd party access.  I saw some checkboxes for wacom, salids (or something like that) and CalDigit.  I mistakenly checked the CalDigit box in the process.  Upon restart I had no keyboard or mouse, even after connecting the mouse directly to the computer bypassing the keyboard.

Fortunately they were swapping my computer anyways for one with enough ram but I learned that Allowing the CalDigit extension or KEXT to be installed shuts down the USB buss on Trash Cans.  The great engineers at Sony knew this from personal experience and they were kind enough to not slap me around.  Apparently the CalDigit code is legacy only for Cheese Graters and destructive to Trash Cans.  I'm not sure why the computer even asked me to allow the CalDigit driver thingy.  Perhaps previously the computer had been connected to a CalDigit device that required it or maybe the computer had been imaged from an Cheese Grater Image.  Just guessing but beware of CalDigit in Security and Privacy on Mac Trash Cans.

I'd say I learned the hard way but the engineers were so professional they made it feel like the easy way to learn.

Background

Avid-L was established in 1994 at Calvin College by Steven Koster.
It was created to be a forum for Avid users to meet, discuss, and share
information.

Avid-L quickly grew into the premiere on-line users group for
professional film and video editors. It was one of the earliest examples

of an Internet community, allowing hundreds of editors worldwide to
share their experiences and expertise with their peers. There was no
better place for a professional Avid editor to get such wealth of
informed professional advice.

At various times, individual subscribers volunteered services to the
group. Searchable archives were maintained by Germany's Berlin Users
Group as well as the UIUC. A tips & tricks list was posted by Andy
Birkhead of Innovative Edit. Wes Plate, a longtime contributor, not only

shared key techniques on his Web site, he also created a photo gallery
for members' portraits.

In 1997, several subscribers began a tradition of meeting in person at
the NAB trade show in Las Vegas. The first gatherings were organized by Jaime Fowler. In 1999,
Avid Technology itself began sponsoring these gatherings as an exclusive reception and seminar for Avid-L members only. In 2002, this changed to the "Avid Users Group" meeting.

By 1999, Avid-L boasted over 1600 subscribers, exhibiting a true
international scope with over 300 international members. The community
included participants from a wide variety of well-known corporate
organizations in broadcasting, technical, and content creation fields,
as well as and multiple local TV stations, colleges, and universities.

In 2000, Avid-L joined AvidProNet.com, and then, in 2002, was integrated
Into Avid.com.

In 2005 Due to problems with signal to noise ratio and abusive posters, the Avid-L2 was formed. A year later the Avid-L was discontinued by Avid.

At the middle of 2006, the L2 has around 1100 members, with plenty of "lurker only" members who simply use the web version of the list. The L2 is spam-free, by moderation and with Yahoo's tools and will remain that way. The integrated archives with both old L and L2 posts came on line recently as well at the University of Illinois. That can be found at http://archives.itg.uiuc.edu/avid/.

Cross-posting to the FCP-L is welcome, tho reply's will not flow back to either list necessarily- check your own email reply preferences. The Final Cut list is found at: http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/FinalCutPro-L

Welcome, and Enjoy!

I believe I saw Marianna post something related to BCC that had some issues but IIRC Boris was coming out with a fix for it.
