gmail – Certain (mainly Google) apps crashing on phone after Google app disabled and re-enabled

The Google app was taking up half a gigabyte of storage even though I never use it, so I cleared its data and disabled it. After I did this, Gmail and Outlook crashed, so I re-enabled the main Google app. Gmail and Outlook were still failing, however.

Since the main Google app was now an earlier version, I thought maybe I should update it. Although I can open the main Google app, it crashes as soon as I switch to the “Update” tab, so that’s not an option. I also tried clearing my Gmail and Outlook data to see if that would help, as well as disabling and re-enabling Gmail, but neither had any effect.

I’ve also cleared all data from Google Play Services and restarted my phone to no avail. If I try to visit Google settings from the Settings app, then the Settings app freezes. What can I do to make these apps operable again? Note that not all Google apps are afflicted. For example, I can still use Drive, YouTube, and the Play Store.

For a little more detail, the Gmail is receiving data. I can see new messages for the half-second that the app is open before it crashes. If I try to send a crash report, the crash-report-sending services crashes too.

I’m using a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge running Android 8.0.0.

sound – PulseAudio card is re-enabled when I unlock the screen after disabling that card

I have two audio devices on my Ubuntu 20.04 machine: Built-in Audio and a USB sound device, and I only want to use the USB device; I don’t need the Built-in Audio at all, and I’d like to disable it (because then I never have to worry about selecting a sound device in video conferencing apps and the like). I can disable the Built-in Audio device in PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol) by setting “Built-in Audio” to “off”, and I can also do this same action from the command line with pactl set-card-profile alsa_card.pci-0000_00_03.0 off and that all works. However, if I lock the screen and then unlock it again, that card gets re-enabled! How can I set it to off so that it stays off?

6.0 Marshmallow: how to prevent disabled applications from being updated and therefore re-enabled?

I have a tablet with Android 6. More than half of the applications are disabled, because I don't need them, but I can't uninstall them (Cloud Print, Google Korean Input, Google Play Games, Google+, etc.)

The problem is that occasionally (once a week or maybe twice a month), Android updates those applications, which enables them again. I then need to manually disable applications, which also means uninstalling their updates. With fifteen applications to disable, this is quite annoying.

Obviously, I can disable automatic updates and then update only the applications I need, but this seems even worse in terms of lost time.

Is there a way to keep automatic updates but ensure that disabled applications are not updated or, if they are, remain disabled?


  • Some resources explain that you have to go to the application page. From there, "tap the menu button (three vertical dots) from the application page and you will see an Automatic Update option, which you can then disable." However, there is no menu button (it only appears for enabled applications that have updates, and the only option is to uninstall the updates, not permanently disable them).

  • When I go to App Play once I disabled the apps that were re-enabled, in the Updates I have no updates for disabled tab. A few days later, if I verify, I still don't see any, but updates may be available for enabled applications.

macos: symbolic links created when SIP disabled do not work after SIP is re-enabled

I am using a Mac Mini with Mojave as a local development server. My main web server runs ubuntu and uses the following routes:

/ usr / home / username / public_html
/ usr / www / users / username /

I disabled SIP on the Mac and created 2 symbolic links for the previous routes to point out / Users / username / Sites. This worked in High Sierra. With Mojave, as soon as I reactivate SIP, I cannot deliver web scripts because symbolic links to routes do not work.

Interestingly, I CAN click on those symbolic links in the GUI and they work fine, but trying to load web pages through the browser throws errors. I may be missing something else here, but that is what I think is happening. Running with SIP disabled works fine.
