Well, basically I recovered from my NAS's version history, although that take a long time (and failed several times). Then I started creating snapshots regularly, and I can revert to a previous state whenever I messed up. Another thing to note: before rebuilding the catalogs, first run a regular fsck. Usually if I do that I would end up with a successful ...

I encountered this problem the last two days on Catalina on my iMac. I tried some suggested methods, but lacked an Apple keyboard, and didn't restart or use SSH. What eventually worked for me, I didn't find elsewhere: Control Command q Esc login Hitting Esc makes the screen go black, which I guess cancels the screensaver.

TL;DR: if your static route doesn't work, but you have Wifi+Ethernet on your Mac, and 2 Ethernet ports on your NAS, you can configure one port on the NAS and the Ethernet port of your Mac to be on a different subnet than your wifi/router one (192.168.100.x vs 192.168.0.x: it doesn't really matter as long as they're different). The second port of your NAS can ...

I had this issue after changing the colour profile of my Macbook and external display from Native to sRGB. Moving back to native or another wider colour gammut profile seemed to resolve the issue for me. Glad I found this as it was really bugging me for weeks.

If I'm correct, this is the same bug I had with APFS, because APFS creates a container and then fills it with virtual partitions (volumes). I'm not sure this is the good way to do the trick but I created partitions formated as exfat for example and then format the partitions to the file system you want ?

Starting off, it’s important to know that any Thunderbolt dock that you get will be obsolete by about five years (at the time of this writing). You need a Thunderbolt 1 or Thunderbolt 2 dock. They will support your requirements of plugging in your peripheral devices; hard drives, keyboards, mice, etc. You may need an adapter for your MIDI interface, but ...

I have exactly the same issue than you: First, I noticed that the entire system was being slower an slower after every upgrade. It could be because of the new improvements or the patched Meltdown and Spectre. But, then I did my own research: I installed GNU/Linux, and saw the same improvements as you: more responsive system, faster compilation. But, okay,...

You could try using gdisk to change the second partition to type AF0A. Note: klanomath's answer lacks the gpt remove ... command due to the nature of the question you have referenced. The type AF0A exists in versions 1.0.4 and 1.0.5 of gdisk. If you have an older version, then you have to enter the type given below. 7C3457EF-0000-11AA-AA11-00306543ECAC &...

I found this answer on Stack Overflow helpful. If I launch App Store.app and it doesn't list Xcode under my available Updates, instead I search for Xcode, I click on the search result, and it shows a large, blue Update button in the upper-right corner to click. In this screenshot, the Update button has been replaced by the circular progress indicator (I'm ...

I tried moving Ethernet on top of service order stack and removing its IPV4 Gateway, but my Mac still keeps connecting to the NAS via WiFi even though Ethernet comes first. Service order priority is great for different networks (i.e. home and work via VPN or work network and lab network). If you're multi-homing to the same network (WiFi and Ethernet both ...

I ordered new cables, I reversed them I went thru a few trials and errors. It kept coming back! I then turned to the color profile. System Preferences -> Displays -> Color I ...

Brightness Menulet App mentioned above is a great option. You can find built releases of the app in forks: fork by florianbeck has an option to follow the main screen fork by Kalvin126 has an option «Auto Brightness», which looks very promising, but didn't work for me. So you don't really have to build it by yourself. You can check other forks and try to ...

I had this problem on Mojave and it seems nothing solves the combination of APFS and automatic mounting of volumes. However, if you have an encrypted volume, it is possible to disable the prompting for the volume password which keeps the volume from being mounted. The part that does the prompting for the password is the file bundle: /System/Library/...
