    Anyone else having trouble with Photos.app crashing? When I launch it immediately crashes. Tried to setup with a new library and an old one.

    I am having the same trouble. Specifically:

    Assertion failed: (ctx), function CIEAGLContextCreate, file /Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/CoreImage/CoreImage-327.6/Framework/misc/CIEAGLContext.m, line 261.

    Poked around the developer forums and it seems to be a problem on the Mid 2010 MBP's.

    That is the one I am having issues on also! Seems to work in safe mode, but not regular.

    Curious what's causing it to not work on this specific mac version.

    Not to add fuel to the fire, I'm having the same error with many apps. Anyone have an idea on a fix aside from waiting for Apple to fix it?

    Photos is fixed on my MacBook Pro 2010 in the second El Capitan beta.
