There’s a bug in macOS Big Sur beta 5 that can cause kernel panics during system startup when the Little Snitch Endpoint Security extension is installed.
You can prevent this from happening by installing the latest Little Snitch 5 Technology Preview version 6121, which doesn’t load this system extension as a temporary workaround until the bug has been fixed in macOS.
If you are already experiencing these kernel panics because you have an older version of Little Snitch installed, please follow the following instructions to resolve this problem:
Start up your Mac from macOS Recovery by holding Command-R during startup.
Open the Terminal app from the Utilities menu in the menu bar.
Navigate to the
SystemExtensionsfolder with this command:
cd "/Volumes/Macintosh HD - Data/Library/SystemExtensions"
(assuming that your startup disk is named “Macintosh HD”). If the Data partition is not already mounted, mount it in Disk Utility.
pwdcommand to verify that you’ve navigated to the correct folder.
EndpointSecurityfolder with this command:
rm -rf EndpointSecurity
- Restart your Mac by choosing “Restart” from the Apple menu in the menu bar.
