finder – Samba shared between MacOS 11.3 and Debian 10 : password incorrect

On Big Sur 11.3 Big Sur, I do a CMD+K in Finder to connect to my Debian 10 Samba server named “pablo”:example

But impossible to enter the right password, I am systematically rejected by the password.

My login is : fab

I tried with password of MacOS 11.3 Big Sur and with password of Debian 10 but none of two works.

I edited the config file of SAMBA on Debian SAMBA server but there is not password is indicated.

Anyone has already had this kind of problem ?

I don’t know what to do more.

macos – Mac stuck at boot after installing Big Sur 11.3

I just tried installing Big Sur 11.3 from Catalina, on a 2020 Macbook Pro.

Here’s what I tried so far:

  • Installed Big Sur via Software Update, everything went like normal until progress bar reached 90%
  • After 4 hrs, progress bar still stuck at 90% with black screen and Apple logo
  • Force shutdown then turn on again
  • Login screen showed up in a Big Sur UI
  • Entered password, proceeds to the same black screen and still stuck at 90% progress bar
  • Waited for an hour, so I forced restart again
  • Booted to recovery mode (cmd+R) and ran First Aid on all volumes, then containers, then disk (as per Apple support page)
  • Restarted, still stuck at 90% progress bar
  • Booted to recovery mode again and reinstalled Big Sur
  • Left it to install overnight, again still stuck at 90%
  • Repeated all steps above (normal restart, restart to recovery + first aid) but same thing
  • Reset NVRAM
  • Booted to Safe mode

On safe mode, after logging in with my user password, it asked me to create a new macOS user (along with the language, terms, apple ID etc like when setting up a brand new Mac).

I went ahead and setup a new user, safe mode booted successfully with a working Big Sur macOS. My old files were still intact when I checked the original user’s directory using the terminal (since currently in safe mode all folders are empty since it’s a new user.)

So in summary:

  • Big Sur upgrade (from Catalina) didn’t complete properly
  • I am able to safe boot to Big Sur but only with a newly created user
  • It might be a startup issue on my original user

Any suggestions on what I should do next? My last resort would be to backup my files on an external HD using the safe boot, then do a fresh install, wiping my disk.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

EDIT: Currently trying out internet recovery mode to downgrade and reinstall Catalina.

EDIT 2: When trying to reinstall Catalina, there are no available disks to choose from when it asks me where to install macOS.

cryptography – HMAC SHA256 implementation in Mathematica 11.3

I need a HMAC SHA implementation for Mathematica for an API authentication. I am not experienced at all in cryptography, hash functions, and HMAC. So far what I found is this:

hmac[key_, message_] := 
 Module[{keyLen = StringLength[key], dkey, opad, ipad, blocksize = 64,
    method = "SHA"}, 
  dkey = If[keyLen > blocksize, IntegerString[Hash[key, method], 16], 
    StringPadRight[key, blocksize, FromCharacterCode[0]]]; {opad, 
    ipad} = FromCharacterCode[
        StringRepeat[FromCharacterCode[FromDigits[#, 16]], blocksize],
        ToCharacterCode@dkey]] & /@ {"5c", "36"};
      IntegerDigits[Hash[StringJoin[ipad, message], method], 256], 
      "Binary"]], method], 16]]

But using the examples from Wikipedia, it returns wrong results. With

hmac[“key”, “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog”]

I get the result: c0af2d1bc1449a4d4e239af0012d8d183d639fcc. The correct output should be de7c9b85b8b78aa6bc8a7a36f70a90701c9db4d9.

Could anyone on advise on what is wrong? Also, what are modifications that I will need to make to turn this into SHA256 from SHA1?

install – Big Sur 11.3 : rebuild the index of all installed Macport packages

Following a lot of error messages when I wanted to install a Macport package on my new MacOS book pro Big Sur 11.3, and having no problem on another MacBook with Big Sur 11.3 also, I decided to do a “raw” copy of the directory /opt/local from the working MacBook to the first one with which I have problems.

Now, I would like to rebuild an index of all Macport packages copied on the new MacBook.

Indeed, if I want to install a Macport package, I get :

sudo port search listofitems
Error: Current platform "darwin 20" does not match expected platform "darwin 19"
Error: If you upgraded your OS, please follow the migration instructions:
OS platform mismatch
    while executing
"mportinit ui_options global_options global_variations"
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: Failed to initialize MacPorts, OS platform mismatch

Have I to copy an index file from the working Macport installation of other MacBook on the new one ? I didn’t find such a file.

As you can see above in the error messages, there seems to be a problem of platform :

Error: Current platform "darwin 20" does not match expected platform "darwin 19"

Please, if someone could help me to rebuild the new packages installed, rather copied in a raw way, but I hope this is possible to get this current index file.

Any help would be fine.

install – pkgutil doesn’t show Xcode Command Line Tools after upgrade to macOS 11.3

I’ve upgraded to macOS 11.3 from macOS 11.2.3. I’d installed Xcode Command Line Tools using Homebrew. Before the upgrade, I used pkgutil to check if Xcode CLT was installed and I got

% /usr/sbin/pkgutil --packages | grep CL
% /usr/sbin/pkgutil --pkg-info

After the upgrade from macOS 11.2.3 to macOS 11.3, Command Line Tools is installed and usable. However, I didn’t see the same results when using pkgutil to check if Xcode CLT was installed.

% xcode-select --version
xcode-select version 2384.
% xcode-select -p
% ls -l /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools

Your system is ready to brew.

Is it still possible to use pkgutil to check if Xcode CLT is installed? Has the package name or location changed?

big sur – Reinstall python 2.7.16 librairies on MacOS Big Sur 11.3

To confirm results of a colleague who has coded an interpolation with Cubicspline from scipy with python2 , I have to import CubicSpline function. I know python2 is deprecated but this is just for a validation.

But when i do a :

from scipy.interpolate import CubicSpline

I have systematically the error message :

ImportError: cannot import name CubicSpline

So, I tried to install it with pip-2.7 by doing :

curl -o


and after from the directory ~/Library/Python/2.7/bin :

./pip2.7 install scipy

but same error, CubicSpline is not found

I have the version :

$ which python2.7

So python2.7 is the default python2 of the system.

How to install CubicSpline library on the default installation of python2.7 in the OS ?

Have I got to reinstall all the python2.7 framework ? and if yes, how to perform it ?

UPDATE : the situation has become worse :

After doing : $ python2.7 -m pip install scipy numpy

I get now :

$ python2.7

ms office – How to turn off new popup for spell checking in Word for Mac on macOS 11.3

After the last macOS update, a popup started appearing when you click on a misspelled word in Word for Mac.
Popup for helping with spelling in Word for Mac

This is a very frustrating function when you work in several different languages not always wanting to spell-check even though the red underscoring is good as a reminder. Hence, I want to keep the previous functionality to get suggestions when right-clicking on an underscored word but would really want to turn this popup function off. Does anyone know how this could be done?

The only option I’ve found is to turn spell-checking as you write off completely, which also removes the red underscoring that I’d like to keep.
