OS X El Capitan 10.11 Issues


Jud

Recommended Posts

Just an FYI - yesterday's Mac OS X 10.11 DP Beta 3 release seems to have "broken" Roon - it was working fine on earlier releases.

 

It's already posted on the Roon support forum, so I'm sure they're aware and working on it - just posting here for CA guys who might be a) using Roon, b) considering updating to the latest OS X 10.11 beta.

 

Just a general advisory for folks considering beta 3: I did what I usually don't and read the notes - glad I did, because there are a plethora of USB issues, including failure to boot if USB devices are attached, and failure to mount at least some USB devices. So for people who use USB DACs, have USB HDD music storage, etc., I'd say it would be wise to skip this latest beta.

Did someone tried it with a M2tech based Dac, and if yes dos it work ?

Similarly: Does anyone know if the Yosemite driver for M2Tech hiFace works with El Capitan?

Is this the same as the (free) public beta they just released today?

 

Yesterday Apple released GM candidate version of El Capitan ...

 

I did a quick installation over a Sony SD64 and boot it with a MacBookPro Retina 2012, i7 2.3GHz. The only check I did was about HQP CPU% consumption; with ELC I noticed a "stable" process usage at ~44% while Yosemite shows a more variable usage at 30-40% ... In addition I noticed System and User CPU% slightly lower for ELC vs. Yosemite.

 

Overall perception is good.

 

No sound comments due to the fact I currently don't have a DAC ...

 

Have a nice day, Massimiliano

Beyond the mail issue above, the Captain runs smoothly on my late 2009 iMac and it even feels it is a bit faster than Yosemite.

 

A+ is working so far without issues.

 

SQ is fine, maybe a hint more resolving than its predecessor but wouldn't feel comfortable claiming a difference.

My mini (2012) is fine including a fw400 external disk.

 

My mac pro (2010) is majorly screwed up: their new USB policy is a mess. USB3 gone. Cannot use USB mouse without jumpiness. A mess. And the intertubes are full of USB issue posts.

Anyone managed to get the M2Tech driver going on El Capitan?

 

I tried uninstalling and re-installing the Yosemite driver and nope..

 

Judging by how long it took for M2Tech to sort out the driver for the previous OS, I'd say forget about upgrading to El Capitan if you have the original USB module installed in your DAC.

 

A separate thread should also probably be started for this one.

Seriously, major fucking screwup - pardon my french - tonight I'm imaging back to Yosemite.

Does anyone know how to turn the IR receiver off or on in 10.11? It seems to have changed; nothing shows up in the "Security and Privacy > Advanced" pane.

I recall checking last night and seeing it there in fact (at work now so can't check). Check that the USB host sees the IR controller in the first place (About this Mac > System > USB). Given the number of USB issues maybe your USB controller is not seeing the IR receiver at all.

I just have a really big issue: my Mail where I kept the archives of my entire mail history is all over sudden empty! Luckily I was able to restore most of them from time machine, but watch out if like me you use a pop3 system!

pop3? You use pop3? Didn't you post something about pop being bad for your brain? ;)

 

No seriously, use IMAP or similar.

From what I read there has been major belt tightening in system processes and the like, which is making things run faster. However, I am having major issues with USB (I have a USB3 Fresco card on my mac pro that worked beautifully before EC). And my mouse is acting like Niki Minaj on coke.
