Little Snitch causes massive boot delay (Mojave 10.14)

Postby BorisKnowsBest » Fri Oct 05, 2018 1:21 pm

Dear Community,

after updating my macbook to mojave i noticed a boot delay (apple logo to desktop ) by approx. 2 minutes.
After trying to check disk, uninstalling some old software i finally deinstalled Little Snitch.
Oh boy - now the machine boots in less than 20 seconds.

I installed Little Snitch again and bam: same huge boot delay...

Can someone confirm this issue? I am running the latest version of little snitch 4.* from the website.

cheers

HI an das LS-Support-Team,

ich kann nur sagen „oh mein Gott!!!“
Nachdem ich nur 14 Tage nach dem Update auf Mojave mit Bootzeiten von FÜNF-Minuten leben musste (es waren unter HS 20 Sekunden), habe ich nach dem Forumseintrag
viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11550
mal LS deinstalliert… und …. die Bootzeit liegt wieder bei 20 Sekunden!

Ist das Problem bei euch bekannt? ich denke man könnte die Kunden doch mal informieren!

Wann wird es ein Update geben?

Hi Warmup,

ja, schon etwas komisch. Vielleicht betrifft es komplette "Blanko" Installationen nicht aber ich kann mir nicht vorstellen das das LS-Team nicht nur diesen Usecase durchgetestet hat.

cheers

Hi,
ja ich kann es mir auch nicht erklären. Wäre auch ohne diesen Post nie auf die Idee gekommen, da ja gerade in dieser Woche ein LS-Update kam.
Ich hoffe, dass der Fehler schnell gefunden wird.

Hab mal gerade versucht
Neuinstallation mit der aktuellen Version
Alleine das Aktualisieren des Boot-Caches dauert 5 Minuten, dann 5 Minuten boot und die Deinstallation nochmal so lange
Gibt es echt nur 2 Mac mit diesem Problem?

Same problem here. iMac 5k 2015 with mojave (final but the problem presented itself in every beta) little snitch cause - not every time, 2 of 3 times - boot delay.

Tried uninstall and reinstall, full onyx mojave version clear cache, boot in single user, utility disk sos from recovery. Nothing seems to improve the situation.

Today i updated to the latest nightly build of LS, still massive boot delay.

Why are the little snitch guys so quiet here? Would be nice to get either a feedback of "thank you for submitting this bug" or "thanks, but this is an issue with Mojave to be fixed by apple"...

Silence all over the place...

My macBook 12" has the same problem like the iMac.

I assume that this is a bug hard to catch because it happens random (maybe it is tied to the incoming connection at boot or something that LS block at boot and the OS is waiting for).

Still, a little Objective Development sign of life in this matter would be appreciated.

Hi Borg,

after some more testing i can assure in my case it happens all the time.
In regarding your "blocked connection --> waiting OS" I simply set my macbook WIFI to sleep when booting.
Nothing changed - still massive delays...

Uodate: Out of my frustration i signed up for Beta Testing and downloaded 14.1 Beta 3.
Unfortunately no effect on the boot delay..

This boot delay with Mojave occurs with external SSD as boot drive
