MacOS 10.15 Catalina Crashes and Freezes on Boot

Sadly, I have turned off my access to the Apple Developers Beta program after installing macOS 10.15 Catalina a few days ago.

After the install, I rebooted by MacBook Air and it "hard froze" and we were heading out of town so I grabbed a backup MBA running Mojave.

Then, after getting back at my desk a few days later, it took me quite some time to recover from the macOS 10.15 Catalina meltdown.

The good news is that it's up and running again with a mid June time machine backup of Mojave.

The bad news is that I cannot trust Apple these days and have removed my Apple ID from the "beta program" until further notice.

Even more good news is that my systems will not be crashing and freezing up on reboot Smilie

Anyway, I don't see any new feature in Catalina that is useful for me personally and I like the Mojave visuals better than the Catalina visuals Smilie

ASMC(4) 						   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 						   ASMC(4)

asmc -- device driver for the Apple System Management Console (SMC) SYNOPSIS
To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: device asmc Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5): asmc_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The asmc driver controls the Apple System Management Console (SMC for short) found on Intel Apple systems. The SMC is known to be found on the following systems: o MacBook o MacBook Pro o Intel MacMini o Mac Pro o MacBook Air o Intel iMac With this driver, you can configure your keyboard backlight brightness, check temperatures of several sensors, check the speed of the inter- nal fans and check the status of the Sudden Motion Sensor. Variables related to the SMC control and inspection are exported via sysctl(3) under the device tree dev.asmc. KEYBOARD BACKLIGHT
On MacBook Pro systems, you can control the keyboard brightness by writing a value to the dev.asmc.%d.light.control sysctl MIB. The following sysctl MIBs contains the raw value returned by the left and right light sensors: dev.asmc.%d.light.left or dev.asmc.%d.light.right. TEMPERATURES
The number of temperature sensors and their description varies among systems. You can inspect the temperature sensors on your system by traversing the dev.asmc.temp sysctl MIB. All values are in degrees celsius. SYSTEM FANS
The dev.asmc.fan.%d sysctl tree contains the leaf nodes speed, safespeed, minspeed, maxspeed and targetspeed. Each of these leaf nodes rep- resent the current fan speed, the safest minimum fan speed, the minimum speed and the maximum speed respectively. All values are in RPM. SUDDEN MOTION SENSOR
The Sudden Motion Sensor (SMS for short) is a device that detects laptop movement and notifies the operating system via an interrupt. The sysctl MIBs present under dev.asmc.sms all relate to the SMS. The most interesting usage of this device is to park the disk heads when the laptop is moved harshly. First, you need to install ataidle(8) (ports/sysutils/ataidle) and then configure devd(8) the following way: notify 0 { match "system" "ACPI"; match "subsystem" "asmc"; action "/usr/local/sbin/ataidle -s X Y"; }; Do not forget to change the X and Y values in the command above. Also, please note that parking the disk heads too many times can dramatically reduce your hard drive's life span. Do not rely solely on the SMS to protect your hard drive: good care and common sense can increase your hard drive's life. SEE ALSO
