Seems the public release happened about 30 min ago (10amPST)
but based on the previous horror stories, it may be a dozen dot releases before I'm brave enough
How can I download it without it wanting to automatically install it?
It is in AppStore at https://apps.apple.com/us/app/macos-catalina/id1466841314?mt=12
but that triggers the System Update, and I want it on an external and leave Mojave alone
@Norman P the download doesnt auto install it from what I know
once it downloads it will start the installer and at the point you can install to an external
That's the way I have always done it, have 10.11 , 10.12 and 10.13 on external drive and a partition waiting for 10.15.38 ;)
Ok... any idea how LONG an install of this POS should take?
I took a 250g external HD, formatted it clean.... and TWO HOURS later, the progress bar moved 1/4" and stopped. Luckily because it was an external drive, I just aborted it, and rebooted back to Mojave.
I think Mojave took like 45min or less
But Catalina is looking worse and worse by the minute.
Can someone on the release build of Catalina (19A583) please try SelectColor() with Xojo2019r.1.1 and let me know if it still crashes on the second call?
Hoping it does not, but if so I'm bracing for support calls and embarrassingly will not be able to release a compatible build.
I hate this.
