I'm getting random kernel panics but I don't know what is happening or how to read this, can anybody help me know what's going on?

It occurs every few minutes, the screen freezes and the fans spin extremely fast for a second before it turns off completely.

I don't know how to read this, but it appears it has something to do with the dock(?), the past week the mac has sound like a plane on takeoff and I found that the solution has been to open the activity monitor and just quit Dock, it works fine, but now it just crashes?

I don't know how to debug this, please help.

    Firstly, report this to Apple. They want and need to know, and the feedback tool will send them all the needful information including your kernel panics and crash logs. Secondly, it's a BETA! this is expected behavior. Things will crash, kernel panic and generally misbehave. If you are not prepared to deal with such and have knowledge on how to, at least, begin to troubleshoot it, you may want to wipe the system and go back to a non-beta version of macOS. Not trying to be harsh here but you sound like you have encountered unexpected behavior. And with beta software crashing is expected. – Steve Chambers Feb 5 at 1:23
  • I tried, thing is I can't access feedback assistant, it says "An error occurred during authentication" so I didn't know where to ask for help. – Daniel Contreras Feb 5 at 22:45

As @Steve Chambers mentions, if you are running a beta OS, panics are normal to encounter and you are expected to report them to Apple. SE is the wrong place for this report for two good reasons:

  1. We do not have access to the source code, internal debugging tools, internal documentation, or engineers that are responsible for the design and implementation of the software, so we have no way to root-cause and fix this issue.

  2. If you write about it here instead of sending your bug report to Apple, they can’t do anything about it, and this issue may end up making it into the final release.

From a cursory look at the panic signature, there may be a bug in the USB driver. Here are some debugging tips:

  1. It would be good for Apple to know whether you have any external USB devices attached.
  2. You should also try running with Safe Mode (Shift at boot) for a while, given that you have third-party KEXTs installed.
  3. Finally, collect a sysdiagnose immediately after the reboot from a panic ($ sysdiagnose in Terminal or ShiftControlOptionCommand. from any app) and include it in your report.

I enjoy examining panic logs but I’m refraining from continuing to help you debug this because it doesn’t belong here. Please close your question and send a bug report to Apple instead.

  • I tried reporting it, thing is I can't access the feedback assistant, it says "An error occurred during authentication" so I didn't know where to ask for help. I don't know if I should reinstall the OS as I don't know where else I can report this bug to them. – Daniel Contreras Feb 5 at 22:47
  • You may want to try the Apple Developer forums developer.apple.com/forums – pion Feb 6 at 19:26
