Re: Can't update Little Snitch to 4.2.1 from 4.2.0 on Mojave

Little Snitch Installer won't work when a copy is started, not the original directly on the read-only disk image. It SHOULD print an error message, but due to an other problem it seems to hang before it gets to this check. I think that the hang you experience may be related to App Translocation. Ple...

Re: [False alarm] Kernel panics since Little Snitch 4.1.3 (5187)

Thanks for the update!

If you have such a hardware problem, it's likely that Little Snitch Network Monitor triggers it with all the animations taking place all over the time.

We all hope for some cool and affordable new hardware :-)

Re: High CPU and disk usage for 1-2 minutes after login

Thanks for reporting this! Little Snitch is reading code signatures in order to determine the team names of your programs. There is a caching algorithm so that this info does not have to be read on every reboot or login, but due to a bug, the cache does not work for rules stored in the user's home d...

Yes. In order to symbolicate the sample: Which version of LS is this (preferably including build number)?

Re: High CPU and disk usage for 1-2 minutes after login

While it's spinning, can you please make a sample of Little Snitch Daemon in Activity Monitor? The other thing that might happen is that Little Snitch Daemon is verifying the code signature of all your programs. This should only happen after an upgrade from Little Snitch 3, though.

Re: High CPU and disk usage for 1-2 minutes after login

You may have subscribed to a rule group with lots of rules. We are currently working on optimizing this. Loading many rules and distributing the rule set among Little Snitch's component may take quite a while if there are several 1000 rules.

Re: Stop recording browsing history!

"Hide from Network Monitor" rules are now available in version 4.1.4 nightly (build 5188). Some fine tuning is still required, but the feature will be in the next release. Note: If you add a rule to hide connections from Network Monitor, connections stored so far are not automatically dele...

Re: How to disable notification on denied incoming connection?

That's another possibility. If you just want to silence notifications for incoming connections, make a rule for them in Little Snitch. Without a rule, incoming connections are denied. So, if you make a deny-rule, the behavior is unchanged, but no notification will be shown.

Re: update to 4.1.1 = problems

I know of one bug which caused this with only a hand full of rules, but that had been fixed in 4.1.1.

If anybody experiences such a hang, please make a spindump or at least a sample of the hanging process(es). We are happy to fix these issues if we can get enough information to track them down!

Re: LS 4.1.2 - Unable to install on OSX El Capitan

Little Snitch installer references /usr/bin/python by absolute path. If you deleted it, you'll run into troubles. It might work if you link the homebrew python there, but I'd rather recommend to restore Apple's original. There might be another copy on the recovery partition, you can get one from a f...

Re: LS 4.1.2 - Unable to install on OSX El Capitan

That should install an additional python, not replace the one from the system. On 10.13.6 I get the following checksum: $ shasum /usr/bin/python 07565e53061f5a9588ab362dc987e5d56b8b8127 /usr/bin/python Another possibility is that Apple's original python loads a library from homebrew's python.

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

Yes. Regarding the Network Monitor memory consumption issue: The "lost memory" should not affect your system, in theory, because the memory is never used and can be swapped out completely. I know that this is not 100% true in practice and the effort of administering swap space costs a bit ...

Re: 4.0.3 has huge memory and CPU footprint in High Sierra

Network Monitor is independent of the filter. The network filter is installed in the kernel and filters all data packets sent or received according to your rules. Network Monitor, on the other hand, receives connection data and visualizes it. If you want to work without Network Monitor, turn it off ...

Re: LS 4.1.2 - Unable to install on OSX El Capitan

As far as I know, it's not the version but rather a compile time option which causes the problem. Users who have replaced python in /usr/bin/ (instead of installing a second python binary e.g. in /usr/local/bin) often experience problems with our installer.
