I've been trying to remove this weird recurring process that happens every second in my system.log:
Sep 27 23:45:12 User-iMac com.apple.xpc.launchd (com.apple.dpd): Service exited with abnormal code: 75 Sep 27 23:45:12 User-iMac com.apple.xpc.launchd (com.apple.dpd): Service only ran for 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 1 seconds.
It'll also randomly throw this SIGKILL message:
Sep 27 23:51:14 User-iMac com.apple.xpc.launchd (com.apple.mdworker.shared.05000000-0200-0000-0000-000000000000): Service exited due to SIGKILL | sent by mds
I've tried a few things so far:
- Disabled SIP in recovery mode, ran
sudo mount -uw /in terminal after booting and removed the com.apple.dpd.plist file from System/Library/LaunchDaemons
- Re-formatted my hard drive and did a fresh install of Catalina. Repeated the above step.
I've been Googling non-stop so has anyone experienced this or know how to fix it? Thanks!
