Does anybody on the Big Sur beta have any idea why the SMB kernel extension needs to be reloaded on each restart? Was it deprecated in favor of something else? [Is it because it is or will be deprecated under the new SystemExtensions Framework?]
This might be related to the same issue with Karabiner-Elements.
Apparently there is a bug in the DriverKit code from Apple.
That was helpful, and I’ll bet that’s exactly what’s causing this same issue. Thanks, John.
