Crashing after moving sky

Asked by larry corbin on 2014-11-09

if I keep the horison at same level I can spin the sly in a 360 degrees but if I move the horizon down any and look higher above the horizon I can not spin the sky around with out Stellarium crashing. This has been happening ever since I installed Stellarium on a new SSD drive.

Ths has nothing to do with your SSD, but you must update GPU drivers! The NVidia 8200 could support the required OpenGL3 if you update the drivers from

I also have one. For some unclear reason 0.13.0 usually crashed within seconds on an XP system.

The only issue with 0.13.1 are occasional crashes when I zoom in on planets, esp. Jupiter.

gzotti suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #2570: “Common problems with version 0.13”.

I updated to 0.13.1 but that was even worse. I had to delete the whole program.

larry corbin (maps3333) said : #4

the program would be locked up solid after opening then crash. Good Lord !!
