Shane's kernel. Chrome doesn't keep passwords.

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm currently using Shane's 10.11.6 and 10.10.5 amd, the latest Enoch.

I'm on an older cpu - Phenom II x4 B50 (unlocked two cores from x2 550) and cannot go higher than 10.11 nor can use clover on 10.11 (x64 exception), and I'm kind of stuck the two system situation.

 

The problem is:

 - 10.11.x doesn't keep chrome password (google account password). That problem doesn't occur in 10.10.5. So for everyday use I boot to 10.10.5 and for work I have to boot into 10.11.6, because of some apple software that the newest version is supported by 10.11. Is it particularly sth with the kernel or is it bootloader. This is the only thing that keeps me from 10.11.6 everyday use.

buy a new hardware then the problem will be history. Please read more about the conflicts of old CPUs with relation to MacOS to understand what the cause is. .... missing SSE4.1 / SSE4.2 CPU features. ...

That's not the point, they're both absolutely stable, and still have enuch power for my needs so, no this not faith, nor the answer to my question. No it is not browser settings related problem, on both versions of mac os the chrome builds are the same, and mac os'es re clean installed. On 10.10.5 chrome remembers the pasword from the beginning and in 10.11. with Shane's kernel it never does.

 

Edit: Now you're talking, I thought so about the SSE4 instructions.

I was going to say that, That's why 10.11 can be run on my CPU. There's something else going on. And SSE4 requirement starts from 10.12, all previous mac os intel versions can be ran here on amd (provided there's a custom kernel). That's a well known bug about that x64 exception type error, that on cpu's like mine it is not possible to boot 10.11 from clover, I'm currently booting 10.11 from Enoch and everything is fine, so that's Clover (especially the dev's don't want to support older cpu's) problem, not amd or 10.11. 

Ok but this bug with chrome not keeping password is when I boot from Enoch (chameleon), as I can't boot it from Clover, so I thought there was sth wrong with Shane's kernel, still to do with SSE instructions.

Spakk, I was just reminding the obvious and it seems Kosma realised that quickly...

 

Kosma, which version of Chrome do you run? Can you post a screenshot of the password management settings (Menu Settings->Passwords and Forms->Manage passwords)?

 

How about "Security & Privacy" PrefPane? I know this should be of no influence, 'kinda thinking out loud here...

Herve thanks for your interest. My Chrome version under 10.10.5 is 62.0.3202.89 (Official version) (64-bit), and under (problematic) 10.11.6 it is ... also 62.0.3202.89 (automatic update).

 

So the story goes like, I log into google id on chrome, it loggs mi in, in websites form it shows my logins but never shows passwords (it does under 10.10.5). When I quit chrome and reopen it, the main google id password is forgotten but the login is remembered. Under 10.10.5 Everything is perfectly ok.

 

Here's the screenshot, passwords are turned on:

It's the version I recently installed on my High Sierra builds so it must be the latest to date.

Hmm, a screenshot where OS X language is changed to English would be a tad better... I just don't speak polish or whatever this language might be. I guess I'll have to compare with the way my own Chrome settings physically look on screen.  :wacko:

 

Edit: Ok, so you definitely have password management On and Auto Sign-in On. Does Chrome ever asks you to save password at all?

I've just tried to set the language to english, apparently it's harder than I though.

Yes it asks if it should remember passwords each time i log in to a "new" site. After reopening chrome, same site is "new" again.

 

Edit:


Look, that's interesting. It seems that I AM logged in to chrome google id, the problem is with synchronisation, not google id password, thats when I reopen chrome. But right after chrome is installed it does sychronise my favourites, apps and so on, but apparently not the site passwords

 

In the right upper corner "wyloguj się" stands for "log out", so it looks I'm still logged in. And the red "zaloguj się ponownie by rozpocząć synchronizację" means "log in again to begin synchronisation".

 

So it looks like it is 10.11 that is to be blamed for this, but especially some amd/kernel related issue, cause on my makbook 10.11 everything is ok.

Here with the amd its a clean install, and I've installed this 10.11 a few times now, each time same problems.

You can very easily set language to English through the Language & Region PrefPane. Simply add English and set it as primary, then close your session and log back in. You'll be all set in English. To revert back to your original language, follow the same process with your local language.

Just to clarify the matter, is the issue logging into Chrome/Chrome synchronisation or just Chrome general passwords saving? These are 2 x different things...

 

I've checked my own settings and, once I'm logged in (something I don't normally do with Chrome on my Hack), I can see 2 x settings that might have an influence:

1) Chrome Sync settings

2) Imported bookmarks & settings. Mine are set to import stuff from Safari and, in Safari, I've got passwords caching enabled. You may want to check that one out...

My suggestion.

 

Stick with Yosemite. 10.10.5.

 

El Capitan is enough different and supposedly advanced that you are running into or past the upper limits of what your machines are capable of.

 

Or contact who ever is doing the development at Shane's Kernel and see if they have any suggestions.

 

I applaud you, sir. Using AMD machines is a real challenge to begin with.

Ok that's clear now, I just thought I was to change the language in chrome ;)

Logging into chrome isn't a problem. It is chrome synchronisation when reopend. Now when I click my name in the upper right corner, it says (screen 1) but it also sais I AM logged in (screen 2), I also have had turned on syncing all the stuff in chrome. Going to check now the imported in safari... checked - there are just a couple of passwords there in safari from the times safari was my main browser. Now chrome and google account has been my main browser for some 10 years or so so all my passwords are kept in google account.

Well I can't stick with just Yosemite, cause Logic Pro X 10.3.2 has El Capitan minimum requirements. I guess I'll have to dual boot, 10.10 for everyday use and 10.11 for Logic. And yes, I have written here on amd dev forum and on amd-osx.com (Shane is on both), but no response from the author yet.

 

I've just noticed, devs have been working for some time now on 10.12 for non sse4 cpu's, so hopefuly we'll be able to switch to 10.12 in the near future ;)... or I'll switch to Asus Z97 and some i7 by that time ;)

Kosma, it says Sign-in details are out of date... So Chrome has clearly stored something but the data is no longer valid and Chrome cannot sync. It's a little different than what I understood.

 

Did you clear all blowing data to delete everything as a test before trying to log in and store your passwords again? Mind you, you said you have the same problem with a fresh EC installation.

 

Oh well, you might just have to sign-in every time then. Is it that bad?

It's not kernel related. I had a similar issue a while back now and was fixed by removing the profile for chrome which was corrupt with incorrect dates and updating it.

Ok, so that's new and it makes sense. Thanks. I'll check that tomorrow cause I've already switched off the desktop. But strange, it occurs on completly clean 10.11.6 install, clean chrome install and immediate login in to chrome.

Well, yes it is no good because even when i log into google account, the browser doesn't get me my passwords, only logins.

It was kernel related issue for me. Either use newer kernel (Latest Spakk`s for 10.11.6 or Shaneee`s RC4) or allow all applications to access chrome safe storage in keychain.

Kosma's problem is in El Capitan, so he's clearly not going to use a Yosemite kernel...

 

@Kosma, if you believe the problem remains kernel related, why don't you try an alternative kernel like Bronya's?

Sorry, of course I meant El Capitan 10.11.6, there is no 10.10.6 anyway.

Try to repair disk permissions. it has helped me with the same issue.

No, rapairing permissions did not work. I also tried to delete the profile and reinstall chrome, nothing. Though I might have done the profile thing not properly, so I'm going to try e few times more now, especially that Norton, on amd-osx.com has just given me a link with instructions:

https://superuser.com/questions/1092864/google-chrome-not-saving-passwords-prompting-to-save-but-not-saved

I also thought about trying different kernels but it looks like Shaneee 10.11.x RC1 is the only one that currently supports 10.11.6. Unless the others are ok too with 10.11.6? 

It was kernel related issue for me. Either use newer kernel (Latest Spakk`s for 10.11.6 or Shaneee`s RC4)

And where would I find these? Looks like I'm using an outdated kernel.
