    I loaded the GM of 10.11 on my Mac and it completely destroy my use of it. All apps would not launch and reported "You can't open the application 'xxxx' because it may be damaged or incomplete."

    I manage to get it partially working under a different user ID, recovered some of the usual ID I use, but mounting problems just proved the install damaged the OS and other things beyond repair. So I'm going to grab my data and run like hell back to Yosemite. Screw this crap.

    I'm presently doing an erase and install. I'm going back to Yosemite since I don't trust the GM release of El Crap-oh at this point.

    I'm betting that this problem will be Apple's next "gate" and I think that they will probably deserve it. Hopefully it won't turn out that way on Sept. 30th. It would suck for them to have 100's if not 1,000's of user's Macs go belly up.

    Didn't you realize it's a beta? That not all apps will be working yet? Some apps won't update until its final release. It's for testing out. Also the installer tells you to backup your system before installing. So I hope you did just that. I went ahead and installed it on a partition. I'm checking it out with select apps to see how well they work. So for I love it. Had to do a few tweaks, such as moving windows with 3 fingers. As I learned they hid that feature after they 'improved' moving windows on a trackpad.

    If beta isn't for you then you learned your lesson. Most will advise to not load it on top of your current working system. At least not without a clone of your original safely stored somewhere.

    After you get your system running again with Yosemite then maybe wait until you know your needed apps are updated to work on El Capitan. Do your research first. Plenty of info on here for just that.

    Good luck.

    If only 1000 Macs go 'belly up' when installing 10.11, than that is probably the most successful OS rollout ever in the human history ;)

    Gatekeep in El Capitan does some additional verifications to the apps integrity. So some apps that passed the check before now could show a warning. Obviously it shouldn't happen with the system apps.

    Yes, exactly the same way as before, in System Preferences -> Security & Privacy.

    That stuff doesn't work anymore. You most likely really do not need to disable SEP, but if you want to you have to boot into the recovery partition, open Terminal, enter
    Code:
    csrutil disable
    then reboot.
