Anyone else finding that running a post flight script:
sudo killall -9 AudioComponentRegistrar
in the latest Monterey release has suddenly stopped working and throws an error screen? It was working fine until the latest Monterey update.
This is using Packages 1.2.10
EDIT: Actually seems to be working again with Monterey 12.6.3 released today.
Uh that’s a bit concerning, but it’s good it seems fixed. It would be nice to have a solution that just fails without error screen should this happen again with some macOS update. I looked it up and I’m using a slightly different script I got from this forum.
pgrep -x AudioComponentRegistrar >/dev/null && killall -9 AudioComponentRegistrar
I don’t need sudo as my installers need admin anyway. The
&& will call
killall only if there really is a process called
AudioComponentRegistrar. When calling it manually from terminal I sometimes notice that there was no such process at the time… maybe that’s what causes your error. It seems more likely to happen just after a system restart.
