They changed "Trash" to "Bin" in the Catalina update. I need to know who is the snowflake who was offended by trash??24
There are numerous horror stories about Windows updates, but Mac updates aren't better. Yesterday I updated to Catalina (reluctantly), and when the computer restarted I was silently praying "Please don't fuck up my VMs".
Naturally, it fucked up VMware...10
Today feels like a proper april's fool,
Bought an aftermarket(?) lightning cable online, which didn't work, had to request for a replacement and wait for 7-30 days (never buy aukey products again),
Got diarrhea from god knows what, been maintaining my meals, couldn't figure out why,
Apple is at it again with the apple sign in
Apparently they "made a mistake" in approving our app back in december last year
That our apple sign in flow isn't compliant to the "regulation" (well partially maybe, but they have been approving it so far)
So they requested we change apple sign in flow
After a lengthy discussion with the cto, we came to a viable solution, though I must test something out first,
Unfortunately just yesterday I updated my ios to 13.4, previously 13.2 but the wifi part (top right back to back with camera) keeps heating during charging, so I figured it's time for an update
Thus I couldn't test on real device because my xcode is outdated, need 11.4 (previously 11.2)
And to use xcode 11.4, I have to use at leasts OSX Catalina 10.15.2
So I tried downloading the xcode first, ETA 1 hour, which failed after every 15 mins and had to restart everytime
Xcode download failed, moved on to downloading Catalina update, same ETA 1 hour, but keeps failing between 3-4 GB of downloaded data
Everytime I restarted, it always starts from 510 MB, I figured the partial download might be corrupted
Tried to find the download cache delete it but no avail
Bought DaisyDisk license to find the file, file found but cannot be deleted, and I don't think I have enough balls to meddle with system files
Currently trying the force update with cmd + option + R command
Seems to be progressing well, hopefully I don't jinx it4
MacOs is being a real pain.
I just wanted to do some c programming and I can't get the debugger to work.
Gdb just straight up won't worked because it's not "codesigned" and I've tried to codesign it to no avail.
Lldb fails once I launch the process. This is a real pain man. I just wanted to learn c.14
Thank you apple for making my macbook not boot anymore after catalina update. By not booting, I mean no fuckin nothing happens when you press the power button. It doesnt fuckin turn on anymore.
Apple service solution: replace mainboard for fucking 800 dollar.
Do I have to expext that a simple software update fuckin bricks my notebook? Wtf who expects that??? Its a 2018 spacegray macbook, lile gooddamn brandnew.
An yeah warranty expired two weeks ago.
I wonder if they do that shit on purpose.9
After updating to macOS Catalina, I can no longer use photoshop CS6.
and the newer versions require login with a licensed account.......
What to do...5
FUCK why did nobody warn me to NOT upgrade to mac os Catalina??? Cant do half shit here not even install goddamn photoshop!!!
How do i downgrade?15
So, the future of Apple is ARM, huh? So people are gonna have to maintain, like, SEVEN toolchains for Mac? What, we've got one or two for Mac OS <10.0, 2 PPC OSX chains that are version-dependent, 2 x86 version-dependent x86, Catalina x86 and now Catalina ARM too?
(These are to memory, if i'm wrong please correct me.)27
Tomcat catalina apache server needs to automatically restart each time you change at least 1 line of a CSS code in order to apply those changes on the web page and guess what
The time it takes to restart is between 30-60 seconds☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️☠️🐟😂🤡☠️🤡🤡🤡🤡☠️🤡🤡☠️🤡🤡☠️🤡🤡☠️☠️🤡☠️🤡☠️🔥🔥🔥☠️🔥🔥🔥😦🔥🤡🔥🤡🔥🤡🔥🤡🔥🤡🔥🤡🔥🤡🔥🤡🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔫🔫😦🔫🔫🔥🔫🔥🔫🔥🔫🔫🔫😍🔫🔫🔫🔥🔫🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🔥🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🔥🔥🤪🔥🤪🔥🤪🔥🤪🔥🤪🔥🤪🍆🍆🔥🍆🔥🍆🔥🍆💦🍆💦🍆💦🍆💦🍆💦🍆💦🍆💦🍆🍆🍆💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦💦👋👋👋👋👋👋
basically if you talked shit about gradle, try apache tomcat.
imagine changing from padding: 10px; to padding: 100px; and waiting 60 seconds just to see this change.9
How rotten and half bitten is this most valuable Apple? See that they get quite some bashing for their latest Catalina release. And they deserve every portion of it, I think.
Honestly, when I saw our testers going through the different betas, which hardly installed and on which our software kept behaving differently, nevertheless they pushed their Golden Master and released. Didn't seem a good idea.
Currently I had to update to Catalina to check some small broken feature of ours and now the active window keeps on losing focus every few minutes. Have to grab the mouse and click there again to continue working. Really fucking annoying. Hope I can track it down some time.. or trash my iMac.3
Ok so i just bought a 256 GB SSD macbook pro and long story short i actually have 200 GB of free space when you take everything that takes up the space.
The fucking Catalina OS upgrade takes 8 GB.
Is this enough memory for programming/work related stuff???25
I am an stupid human being. How many times should I experience the same problem to learn from it? I don’t know why should I possibly be obsessed by latest MacOS updates? This fucking error ruined my day. Those fucking idiot coders in Apple must use some unit tests (including transparent iTerm in second display). Fuck you all. My £1600 Macbook pro is literally useless until some fucking coder finds what is wrong in their NEW update.4
Are there some good external portable macbook pro monitors that have the vertical/portrait functionality? Also, it should be rechargeable and should not get power from my laptop when there's still a charge. (I use MBP 15" 2018 model)
We are agile at work (all use laptops, no permanent seats) and I need an extra portale monitor because there are no provided external monitors to use.
I was thinking of buying and iPad pro as a portable external monitor via catalina sidecar but it is laggy somehow and very expensive. Thanks! 🙂23
Just wanted to make a clean install on my iMac. What could possibly go wrong?!
Cleaning the hard disk was interrupted by a process running (kextcache). Catalina wouldn't install ("Incomplete systen on target device". Dropping the terminal I could somehow force unmounting and wipe the disk. Had a BSOD in between. Catalina would still not install ("Failed to install pre boot volume"). Later erasing the disk got blocked by the kernel itself. Felt like trouble and it was: Next time I was greeted with a blinking folder containing a questionmark instead of the bitten Apple.
Last resort: Internet recovery. Installing El Capitan was said to take 7 hours so I took a USB time machine backup of latest Catalina. Installed it, but on reboot it get's stuck when progress bar is at 100%. But at least I've a working recovery again. Yeah, progress!5
Updated my Mac this afternoon to macOS Catalina. Apart from rearranging all my apps in Launchpad, the major change I notice is that the terminal is using zsh instead of bash... ok... cool. I don't know anything about zsh... what differences can I expect? Should I go back to bash?5
only releasing amd64 image !! , supporting an instruction set architecture does not mean code is optimised for other microarchitecture
i thought linux distributions are do less and do way better than others, so why so much bloatware!!!.
ideally best way is to compile your own kernel and add minimal gui support as required, too much work !!!
also just a heads-up if you are using Catalina use virtual-box 6.0.22
also vivado 2019.2 is suable with ubuntu 18.04 + lightdm , remove that gnome shit24
I’m new to using gdb to debug. It could detect the places where I was getting SIGSEGV randomly. But there are also rare cases when the program just gets segmentation fault as soon as it starts, and it when that happens, even my gdb gets frozen and I have to shut down my terminal altogether.
What’s with this ? Is this some sort of kernel error (like Bus error) ? I’m using macOS Catalina and gdb 9.1.2
Fucking Apples hold my bananas! Collegue and me see our naïve thought refuted that a commercial vendor, most valuable company would create an OS that is not as split and fucked up as Linux distros.
It is hard even where to begin, so deep is the shitfest they are putting developers through with Mojave and Catalina.
Our testers weren't hardly able to install Catalina beta 6-7. Behavior of kernel extension and full disk access varying on a daily basis. Fixing these bugs is like nailing a pudding to the wall.
Makes me wanna quit software. Whom should you trust if even your OS is flaky as hell?9
