macOS Catalina and com.apple.WindowServer issue
Posted by: space-time
Date: March 28, 2020 05:15PM
Anyone else here having these issues?

Every week or so I get a kernel panic when I start my MacMini when I START my MacMini. I see similar reports from other uses but they usually complain that machine crashes when waking up from sleep, or when they play videos. Mine crashes on Startup.

I just finished setting it up the way I want it in Catalina... I have to downgrade to Mojave but maybe I should.

here is a similar thread, and below is my crash report.

It's not com.apple.WindowServer at fault.

It's complaining that com.apple.WindowServer doesn't launch.

Could be that you've got a hardware problem. Lots of panics usually do point to hardware issues.

But could also just be an obsolete driver messing up the boot-process.

What have you got in your /Library/Extensions folder? Anything dated more than 3 years ago?

yes, there are some items that are old, but this is a fresh install of Catalina. Here is what I have:

That can't be a clean install of Catalina with a 2013 storage driver present.

Interesting. I did format the drive. Then installed Catalina from Apple.

besides the stock Apps, I have installed these:
1Password 7
Anaconda Navigator (in fact the entire Anaconda distribution)
balenaEtcher
CCC (latest version from Bombich)
Civilization (from App store)
Google Chrome
MATLAB R2020a
Parallels Desktop 15
PyCharm with Anadonda plugin
zoom

This issues was before I installed zoom. I think even before Anaconda, PyCharm, Parallels.

also I am 99.999% sure this is a clean install, as in Nuke and Pave, format the SSD and Install.

Did you use the Migration Assistant to bring your data/apps back?

No, everything was FRESH and I downloaded all those Apps.

I have another external SSD and I am also 100% positive that was nuked and paved. And guess what, it has the same extensions.

I will now check a 2017 MacBook Air to see what is there.

on MacBook Air, the Promise is from 2017, and on Mini is newer, 2019. Also mini has 2 HighPoint extensions, MBA has only one.

I have a brand new Catalina install, did it yesterday.

Have not done anything after setting up the user account. Nothing installed subsequent to the OS.

No CalDigit extension. Oldest dated item is the HighPointRR extension dated Dec 2017.

Given that the panic occurs before the OS has finished loading, kexts are high on the suspect-list.

I'd pull any extensions dated prior to 2017. Keep 'em handy. Don't trash them. Just remove them from the /Library/Extensions folder.

OK will try that. I am curious what causes that extension to get installed.

yes, there are some items that are old, but this is a fresh install of Catalina. Here is what I have:

I took a look inside the macOS Catalina installer and found the exact same 10 kexts, located in the BaseSystem.dmg. So a fresh install can put those in /Library/Extensions.

Thanks for confirm this. I know Sarcany is (almost) always on the right track, and I was surprised by his position that this cannot be a fresh install.

With a 2013 date on the CalDigit extension?

The HD Pro is a legacy product that CalDigit doesn't support. It's a RAID tower from 2007 that requires a PCI card.
[downloads.caldigit.com]

It is with great regret that we inform you that we will no longer be supporting these devices as of Aug 1, 2017. These products have exhausted their lifespan, in fact, some of them are from 2006 and 2007, and despite our best efforts they cannot be sustained in the current technological landscape. Therefore, we will not be creating any future software, firmware, hardware updates, or replacements for these products.

I have no idea why Apple might bundle that extension. It's useless on a modern Mac. Pull the extension. Might make no difference at all, but it's the first troubleshooting step for this kind of panic.

Sure, will pull those extensions in a separate folder.

However, I am surprised that on some Macs this gets installed, and in others it does not.

Yup, I've seen that extension in Sierra, High Sierra and Catalina installs I've done.
