There was an ongoing thread here regarding macOS kernel panics. I wanted to open a dedicated bug report thread, but if any mods could merge them to preserve the details, that would be great!
I have run into 3 kernel panics so far, all happening after the release of 0.10.9 or 2021-01-19.
The first two kernel panics occurred during normal usage. One occurred when editing a single text file (typing). The other occurred in a split-screen with a simple text file in one pane and a large PDF (using the new PDF viewer from 0.10.8) in the other.
The 3rd kernel panic occurred while Obsidian was sitting in the background (Safari was the primary application). The note that was open was a basic file with a YAML header and internal links only.
Kernel panics are not expected during normal usage.
Kernel panic occurs, resulting in a hard restart of device.
Operating System: macOS 11.1 (Intel)
Obsidian Version: 0.10.9 – 0.10.10 (Installer 0.10.7)
I do utilize a number of 3rd party plugins and the Minimal theme (in case other folks may see potential overlap):
- Advanced Tables
- Editor Syntax Highlight
- macOS Keyboard Navigation
- Mind Map
- Minimal Theme Settings
- Paste URL into Selection
- Sliding Panes
For the core plugins, I am utilizing everything (including Sync and Publish) except Markdown importer, Zettelkasten prefixer, slides, and the audio recorder.
I’ll begin the process of narrowing down to only the core features.
The vault has been using Obsidian Sync + iCloud Drive + Git-LFS (GitHub), but haven’t had any problems with the setup previously.
