comment Keychain does not show passwords after El Capitan upgrade
@W.vanKuipers I did not have any other touch devices attached, just the magic mouse (bluetooth) though. Not sure if you meant a mouse with a real cord though. Anyway, It seemed that the reason in my case was a different one: FileVault caused the problem. After disabling it, the keychain works again. I mentioned it in my other question here: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/231340/…

@patrix Which ones? I tried quite a few that I found here on SX. See apple.stackexchange.com/questions/231340/…

@patrix Maybe some drawbacks, but on the other hands, what's a mechanism worth that does not work properly or breaks other parts. You could still use PGP Whole Disk encryption (Symantec Drive Encryption) and achieve the same.

@DictionaricsAnonymous I meanwhile solved the original problem; I was then also able to see my HD after disabling FileVault, however, the disk repair fails with "The file system verify or repair failed", screenshot: snag.gy/webdr.jpg, although I am not experiencing any issues with my Mac. I will just live with this corrupt system until it really breaks. I always have a backup anyway. Thanks for your help on this problem.

@klanomath After disabling FileVault, the HD shows up again. (Weird, why would the Reset Password app not ask me for the decryption password and decrypt it there on the fly, instead of having to boot in regular mode again and deactivate it. Not very logical to me.)

comment How to stop my machine asking for multiple passwords when I log in?
I had this problem on El Capitan, and my solution was to turn off FileVault under System Preferences > Security and Privacy. See apple.stackexchange.com/questions/231340/…

@W. van Kuipers I am having the same issue, but I am already using a "regular" mouse, the Apple Magic Mouse, and/or the built-in touchpad of my Mac, and working directly on the Mac, no RDP. And I still get the same error message in the system.log about "untrusted source". Do you have any additional idea?

@DictionaricsAnonymous You're probably right. But indeed, seems to be an El Capian issue, see my update in the OP.

@klanomath Yes, it was enabled before, I turned if off just few minutes ago and it's still decrypting.
