[SOLVED] [LittleSnitchToBlame] Consistent hard crash opening Anytype 0.24 on macOS Monterey 12.4 x86

Describe the bug

Since updating to the 12.4 beta OS on my x86_64 imac
Anytype seems to hard panic my box upon opening.

It was working fine BERORE updating to 12.4.

I’ve not found any other app which causes a hard panic, but that doesn’t mean too much :slight_smile:

Anytype CONTINUES TO WORK on my apple silicon MBP running 12.4

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. open anytype
  2. Login
  3. Machine hangs within seconds afterwards.
  4. machine reboots

Expected behavior
A clear and concise description of what you expected to happen.

I can use anytype? :slight_smile:

If there’s any additional information you’d like, please let me know. I’m not sure where the ‘signal/noise’ line should be drawn here.


This must be really frustrating. Is it still acting like this?

Well well well… This looks like it may be related:

The symptoms match, and I can see anytype falling into the ‘non-webkit’ network interaction category.

will install this and see if I have the same problem afterwards

This was totally the problem.

LittleSnitch caused the panic.


Wolf, hello.

Thank you for your report. The kernel panics unfortunately still happen on some systems with macOS 12.4 beta 1.

Apple is aware of the problem and is already working on a solution…

it seems this is still a thing. I removed little snitch to see if this improves for the moment

Removing little snitch seems to have helped. Anytype is still running… hours after boot:
