I've also had problems with freezez of system. And I now managed to crash my system manually. Its the bluetooth what crashes my system. Writing hcitool -i hci0 info [connected_mac] bamm total lock-up!

@gnunn @m3thodic Dang. Same here - NVRAM reset didn't seem to fix the freezes. I'll see if I can't extract anything from logs across my system at the time of my freezes. Thank you kindly for the suggestion!

And it just froze on me again, so the PRAM reset didn't help unfortunately.

Thanks @m3thodic, I've reset the PRAM as per the instructions so hopefully this will work.

@m3thodic, that file do "exists". The kernel is a 4.8.1 one but it searched for the "4.8.0" directory - I don't think we've ever used x.y.0 version number. Anyway things are back normal in 4.8.2.

@gnunn @toastercup I highly suggest you reset your PRAM and see if that fixes anything:

Here’s how to reset your PRAM:

1) Shut down your machine. Yes, all the way down, not sleep or logging out.
2) Press the power button and then press command-option-p-r. You have to make sure you get those keys pressed before the gray screen comes up or it won’t work.
3) Hold those keys down until your Mac reboots again and you hear the startup chime.
4) Let go of the keys when after you hear the second chime and let your Mac reboot normally.

NOTE: this will reset your Mac's startup disk so you will have to boot into the recovery partition (command-r) and re-run the refind install script (or whatever boot manager you use).

Let us know if that works for either of you.

@hexchain that file is created the depmod command which is run on install from the linux-macbook.install script. If it doesn't exist I'd suggest re-running the grub-mkconfig command I've pinned to the top of the comments here.

@gnunn @m3thodic I've also experienced the lockup issues on my Macbook Pro 12,1 for around 4-6 months now. It happens every 1-2 hours and symptoms seem to worsen as the months progress - it happened in the middle of typing this, even! In addition to linux-macbook, I experience this issue across stock kernel and linux-ck. The system will suddenly lock up, I'll have to hold the power switch, and upon reboot (even if I wait before turning it back on), it will pause for around 20 seconds with a black screen, pause for 20 seconds at the UEFI boot screen, get to the gdm login screen then pause again for 20 seconds, then finally allow me to login without anymore pauses for an hour or so. I make it a habit of rebooting my system often to lessen the bruises. How odd!

Just an FYI, I downgraded the kernel back to 4.7.6 and linux-firmware (which was recently updated as well) and I'm still getting the freeze issue so something else is obviously going on. I'll keep investigating but thanks for your feedback m3thodic, greatly appreciated.

I cannot boot after 4.8.1 update. It complains about missing "/lib/modules/4.8.0-macbook/modules.devname" in initramfs.
