This seems suspiciously like the background photo image analysis process that plagues older versions of Catalina with RX 5700 XT GPUs. Because the crash happens after 5 minutes of activity, it means background image analysis is most likely getting started.Hi there, thanks again for a strong build and amazing ongoing support!
I've been rock solid stable for about a year on 10.15.3 until last night when the system started kernel panicking after different periods of being left alone. Been religiously avoiding anything automatically updating so I just don't know what would have caused this new pattern of panics.
Sapphire Nitro+ RX 5700 XT SE 8GB
Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 4x 8GB (running fine at 2666MHz)
WD SN750 M.2 NVMe
Clover version 5104
I have turned off screen saver and allowing the display to sleep, so far not convinced this has any bearing on the panics. System sleep/wake and waking up a sleeping display have worked perfectly since the original installation a year ago. If I'm actively using the computer (email, web browsing, working in Adobe Premiere) all is good, but if I leave it alone and walk away for 5 minutes I'll come back and it will have frozen/locked up. Weirdly, it appears to be almost exactly 5 minutes each time, based on when I see that the system clock has frozen. A hard reset from the case lets it boot back up and a Problem Report is generated. Attached two of them to this post. The fact that the panic begins with a video freeze (and not the "your computer has a problem" roll down) and the "AMDRadeonX6000" in the backtrace worries me that this is being caused by some weird new thing with my 5700 XT.
I'm considering moving up to a newer version of Catalina, but haven't seen a ton of discussion for moving from 10.15.3 to 10.15.7.
Anything jump out as an obvious thing to check? Or a big red flag in the Problem Reports?
Thanks again for the time/energy on this huge thread, much appreciated --
Recommendation: Make full backup then upgrade to latest Catalina. Please ensure you’re on OpenCore (no need to upgrade to latest OpenCore if you’re running an older version).
