Github FedoraQt MediaWriter issues 217 None open Doesn't work on macOS Catalina 2020-06-30 20:35:37 UTC

Description Ben Cotton 2020-05-27 12:13:03 UTC
As reported upstream (https://github.com/FedoraQt/MediaWriter/issues/217): the application doesn't write anything to the disk, even though it says "writing".

Opening this bug for the purpose of the Fedora Prioritized Bugs process.

Comment 1 Ben Cotton 2020-06-03 15:40:45 UTC
In today's meeting, we agreed to accept this as a prioritized bug:

Comment 2 Ben Cotton 2020-06-16 18:46:13 UTC
Martin, do you have an update on the Catalina support possibilities we discussed in the last Prioritized Bugs meeting?

Comment 3 Jan Grulich 2020-06-17 05:45:30 UTC
I will try to look into that. I'm currently waiting for a hardware and then I guess it will take a while until I find out as I have never used MacOS before.

Comment 4 Jan Grulich 2020-07-01 05:39:01 UTC
Update: I have a MacBook and I started working on it.

Comment 5 Jan Grulich 2020-07-03 06:24:20 UTC
We have a working solution, which is currently on review here → https://github.com/FedoraQt/MediaWriter/pull/256. I think or hope we can have a release soon.
