If you use vagrant, virtualbox and a mac os, don't update to monjave yet. Apple broke it without fix so far. Can't run my homestead 😣

    Windows also broke VBox with some "Device Security" thing which blocks hardware virtualization in recent updates. Luckily you can just disable that thing.

    @irene oh boi, I can’t wait for that update to hit me 😟

    @C0D4 HINT: disable "Device Guard" in gpedit.msc.

    That thing blocks both VMware and VBox from accessing virtualization on both AMD and Intel CPUs

    @gitpush ask Microsoft personnel 🤷
    Some "security" I guess. Same as Secure Boot. Maybe it's actually useful for average Joe.

    PS: I had to do that 😄

    @irene but it for sure something to break other things lol

    @gitpush well... Virtualization is a "hack" to use hardware directly when it should not be. So it's not a wonder that some hardware protection would block it. Imo.

    I am using trial of parallels now. Hopefully Oracle updates it to work soon.

    Hehe this happens with every Mac OS update. It's really better to wait a bunch of months, marginal new features don't make up for the trouble.

    (Or join the rEFInd Linux-on-MacBook club, I can especially recommend Linux Mint because "It Just Works" 😁)

    @bittersweet nothing like that happened to me in the past updated and it was really unexpected. Apple broke cause of kernel panick risk and they just handed over repairs to oracle who have yet made correct fixes.

    I refuse to believe(without any proof that is) that enough dR users use macOS to warrant posting this.

    @scoots I've had problems with upgrading to panther, leopard, mountain lion, yosemite and el capitain, after which I decided to install Linux Mint on my Apple devices.

    OSX is admittedly pretty stable when it works, but Apple is really not great at doing new releases. Which kind of surprises me considering their product lineup is fairly limited.

    @scoots a bit late on the reply on my part, but it looks like the reason mine works is because I disabled SIP
