So far, this is by far the smoothest upgrade I've had with the Mac, and I've run every version since System 6. The only issues I ran into are:


* MySQL System Preference Panel doesn't work (whoop de do), but MySQL started fine, and my databases are all running smoothly.


* Apache: Apple moved the configuration directory from /etc/httpd to /etc/apache2. Something else changed in the update, and my existing httpd.conf file wouldn't function, so I had to re-enter it and my virtual servers from scratch. Good news is that I didn't have to reinstall PHP and Perl like I had in the past.


* Webmin: Had to reinstall, but it won't start automatically with the system. I have to start it manually in the terminal with /etc/webmin/start.


*  Printer Sharing: My USB printer couldn't share out to my Windows PC. I'm too tired to dive into CUPS, but fortuantely 10.5 advertises shared printers in Bonjour; installed that on my Windows PC, and the printer share was fixed in no time.


I have two outstanding issues left - neither are show-stoppers:


* Firewall - I've been using Flying Buttress (formerly Brickhouse) for a long time (works very well when you have two NICs). It works, but it doesn't start automatically. It looks like the author doesn't have access to a machine capable of running 10.5, so I'll probably have to migrate elsewhere, or start learning how to do iptables by hand.


* - it's not playing nice with Citadel again. I can get email, I can send email, but I can't delete email. I expect IG and the rest of the boffins to nail that shortly.

I talked to IG about that.... It's supposedly fixed already in a non-released version. We should see it soon.

Sweet - it needs to be said over and over how quick and just plain damn good IG and the rest of the developers are.

I like how when has a problem connecting to the sending server it offers me the options of Try again, Try lator, or Edit message, as if editing the message content may allow it to be sent...

It might, if you have forbidden attachments, or too many.

Nah... I get that sometimes. The fix is a pain in the rear but it works:

Open mail, then open *accounts*. Select the problem account and hit the "minus" button and delete it.

Then select "edit servers" from the drop down server menu. Delete the server associated with that account.

Then go back and re-create that mail account; lastly adding to your server list the one you just deleted.

This will usually get things working again. It is a known issue in tech support circles.

It is also a good idea to jot down the pertinent info such as

(incoming server) (or whatever)

Account user name

Full used name


(outgoing server)

You know, just the commen sense stuff.

This should clear up your Apple mail client for you when it does this sort of thing.

If not, I have a variety of hammers in my garage. :^)

I think the problem was that the internet where I was sitting was blocking all non-them SMTP servers.

Subject: The World's Cheapest Car Set To Launch

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

theodp writes "Ready for one-automobile-per-child (OAPC)? India's giant Tata Group is on the verge of launching the world's cheapest car. The People's Car, slated to be unveiled January 10th at a New Delhi auto show, will carry a sticker price of 100,000 rupees ($2,500), which some analysts say could revolutionize automobile costs worldwide. The Tata is a pet project of Cornell-trained architect Ratan Tata, which he helped design. The vehicle is aimed at improving driving safety by getting India's masses off their motorbikes and into cars."

Not sure why's that in the Mac room - but it looks interesting. I'd have to be seriously convinced of both safety and emissions.

"Tim O'Reilly, publisher of the O'Reilly Radar blog and an organizer of the Web 2.0 Summit, says that these "three-tiered systems" b that blend hardware, installed software, and proprietary Web applications b represent the future of the Net."

(quote from the article dothebart cited)

People should stop quoting Tim O'Reilly. He's really really good at publishing -- what self-respecting geek doesn't have a shelf or three of O'Reilly books?
But as a technology luminary, he doesn't have *anything* relevant to say.
