macOS 11.5 fixed the diver load issue (for me)

May be of use/interest to some of you. When on 11.4 I was having to run the below in terminal for every start up;

sudo kmutil load -p /Library/Extensions/SoftRAID.kext

Interestingly, the first time I ran this in 11.5, it came up with some type of "a reboot is needed to action this request" message, which I never had on 11.4.

A few reboots in, and so far, no need to manually load the driver.

I will investigate that, I did not think this issue was addressed in 11.5.

Seems to be resolved for me as well. Installed 11.5, restarted with the update, and my volume mounted on it's own without having to manually load the driver.

Good news, but now I need to figure out why this is a "partial" solution. We were not told this was fixed, but it could be, and some users are reporting 11.5 does not fix the mount issue. So it is too early to declare victory.

@softraid-support yep, didn't work for me at all... really encourage lead dev to just hack the shell command in on launch if raid drives appear unmounted.

Send me a new Support file. Let me see if I can find any clues.

Lets try this. I see a few extensions that are obsolete or probably there are updates:

not loadable

SiLabsUSBDriver.kext

Probably out of date:

VDMounter

UFSD_NTFS

intelhaxm

 

Delete/update these, reset the extensions cache and see if this helps:

sudo kmutil clear-staging
sudo kextcache -i /

@softraid-support not really sure how or what they are used for... probably my old windows parallels vm, ntfs support which should be updated... sounds like rolling the dice eh?  why doesn't macOs signal out these drivers into a UI on startup and tell you they need updated or to delete them?

Upgrading Paragon NTFS yet again smh... i don't even ever use this stuff anymore but somehow it only works for a year or less...  really should probably just uninstall it all for good but i don't know how to remove all traces on a mac.

Paragon should have an uninstaller, but I did not see one. You can go into your /Library/Extensions folder, delete any older extensions for things you no longer use and then use the two cache commands to clear them.

Best way to delete is using the rm -r command, then paste in the path to the file, which you can get from System Profile/Extensions.

then reset the cache and restart.

sudo kmutil clear-staging
sudo kextcache -i /

Looks good now. the Epson driver may have an update, install it if so. you have:

/Library/Extensions/EPSONUSBPrintClass.kext
Kext Version: 2.7.3

There are 14 different software packages for my Epson printer (no joke) that apparently don't keep themselves updated through their 'auto updater' lol... how do they expect people to keep this stuff running correctly?  How do we look now?

I think that you point out a flaw in the "auto install" printer methodology in macOS. very convenient to auto install drivers, but to never check if there are updates, not so good.

 

You have this still:

intelhaxm.kext

I do not know if that has a problem, it is 2016, but at least is code signed and loadable.
