I have a Mac Mini (2012 era running Catalina 10.15.7) that has 16GB RAM installed.
I downloaded the latest KStars from the KDE site, and installed it and can not get past the "flash" screen of it booting up before it dies a horrible death.
I have it running fine on my Windows 10 Surface Book, my Windows 11 Pro desktop and my Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTD desktop (not to mention my RPi's).

I have seen some reports of people having issues, and others not having issues.... I have yet to find a commonality in the hardware.

Anyone else having issue on a similar computer and have discovered a resolution?
