I was using the Zsh Osx templates and after the update nothing seemed to work, and it didn’t even seem to be reading my .zshrc file either.
I tried installing the SVN version from the google site, but that didn’t work.
What did work was that I moved my .zsh dir and .zshrc file to a backup location and reinstalled from the tarball. Then I was presented with the nice config dialogs.
Then I moved my old stuff back into place
~> cp old/.zshrc .zshrc ~> source .zshrc ~> cp old/.zsh/zshprompt .zsh/zshprompt
mate command stopped working for me , but after fixing zsh , it works again.
So PHP 5.3 comes with OSX 10.6 ! That would be excelent except that nothing works !!
had to reinstall 5.2.10 using my instructions …
EXTRA_CFLAGS="-lresolv" make -j2
And it looks like I have a problem with GD , so needs to be built with out gd

after recompiling JPEG libs I recopiled php adding the following options.
--with-gd --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-png-dir=/usr/X11R6
look here for apple’s patch

I use hebrew dates on my OS and it worked fine , but now mails in my exchage box are getting wired dates. This is only happening in the message listing pane, but in the message view pane that date is fine.
Turns out it isn’t a problem with hebrew dates, I have the same issue with gregorian dates :(.
I moved my ~/Library/Mail folder and let Mail rebuild it , and that didn’t work …
I switched to using my old IMAP setup for this exchange account and it seems to work now .
Trying to install Xcode …
This will let you use IE6 ( and XP ) on OSX for free!!
It uses Suns VirtualBox emulator.
I set back the clock so it won’t expire and it seems to work fine…
This will only work on an intel mac , and it is tested on 10.5 ( as well as on XP )

More info to come , and check back here for updates.
Update 20th of Elul, 5769
I’ve updated the torrent file to use a http seed so you can keep downloading even when there are no available peers, or you have NAT/Firewall problems. As long as this doesn’t kill my bandwidth usage I’ll keep it going.
Please let me know if things are working or if you have any issues.
OSX Security Update 2009-005 Upgrades to PHP 5.2.10 and wrecks havoc on a custom compile..
This morning when trying to work I started getting strange empty pages, I broke my head on this problem before and solved it by recompling PHP.
From Apple’s site:
CVE-ID: CVE-2009-1271, CVE-2009-1272, CVE-2009-0590, CVE-2009-0591, CVE-2009-0789, CVE-2008-5498
Available for: Mac OS X v10.5, Mac OS X Server v10.5.8
Impact: Multiple vulnerabilities in PHP 5.2.8
Description: PHP is updated to version 5.2.10 to address multiple vulnerabilities, the most serious of which may lead to arbitrary code execution. Further information is available via the PHP website at http://www.php.net/ These issues do not affect Mac OS X v10.6 systems.
The solution is to recompile php again with my custom configuration, lucky for me my old comple was still sitting in my downloads folder , so I just had to do a:
sudo make install
now everything seems to be back to normal.
I recently updated my Powerbook G4 to a MacBook C2Duo, and I wanted to get working quickly so I cloned the hard drive from the PowerBook to the MacBook, and I was able to pick up working right where I left off, that is until I one of my Joomla projects stopped working.
One of my joomla projects was just returning me a blank page, no error message and nothing in the logs.. everything worked fine on the live sever, after about 6 hrs of banging my head on the keyboard, I had a genius idea. I powered up the old powerbook , and the project still worked there! I quickly realized the problem. I had done a custom compile of PHP on the powerbook, and it probably wasn’t working so well on the Intel MacBook.
The obvious solution was to recompile PHP, so I downloaded PHP 5.3, excited about the built in Mysql driver. Configure went fine, make went fine, and then I try to restart apache :
org.apache.httpd httpd: Syntax error on line 114 of /private/etc/apache2/httpd.conf: Cannot load /usr/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so into server: dlopen(/usr/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so, 10): no suitable image found. Did find:\n\t/usr/libexec/apache2/libphp5.so: mach-o, but wrong architecture
So I found a solution , recompile Apache, and I wasn’t really in the mood for that, so I figured I’d try an older version of php.
I tried PHP 5.2.10 , and after some twiddling with config options and reinstalling MySql, configure, make, make install, and now my project is working again.
here is the configure command I used
CFLAGS='-arch x86_64' ./configure --without-iconv --with-apxs2 --enable-pdo --with-zlib=/usr --with-curl --with-mcrypt --with-pdo_mysql=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.37-osx10.5-x86_64/bin/mysql_config --with-mysqli=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.37-osx10.5-x86_64/bin/mysql_config --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.37-osx10.5-x86_64 --disable-dependency-tracking --prefix=/usr --without-mcrypt -mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-config-file-path=/private/etc --sysconfdir=/private/etc --enable-cli --with-curl=/opt/local --enable-ftp --enable-mbstring --enable-mbregex --enable-sockets --with-ldap=/usr --with-ldap-sasl --with-kerberos=/usr --with-mime-magic=/etc/apache2/magic --with-zlib-dir=/usr --with-gd --with-png-dir=/usr/X11R6 --with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6 --without-jpeg-dir --enable-exif
You can get them from here
Setting the appropriate environment variables also might help , but I’m not sure if this is required.
CFLAGS="-arch x86_64 -g -Os -pipe -no-cpp-precomp"
CCFLAGS="-arch x86_64 -g -Os -pipe"
CXXFLAGS="-arch x86_64 -g -Os -pipe"
LDFLAGS="-arch x86_64 -bind_at_load"
export CFLAGS CXXFLAGS LDFLAGS CCFLAGS MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET
be sure you get the newest version of freetype as some of the older versions won’t compile the shared libraries in 64 bit.
CFLAGS='-arch x86_64' ./configure --without-iconv --with-apxs2 --enable-pdo --with-zlib=/usr --with-curl --with-mcrypt --with-pdo_mysql=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config --with-mysqli=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --disable-dependency-tracking --prefix=/usr --without-mcrypt -mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --with-apxs2=/usr/sbin/apxs --with-config-file-path=/private/etc --sysconfdir=/private/etc --enable-cli --with-curl=/opt/local --enable-ftp --enable-mbstring --enable-mbregex --enable-sockets --with-ldap=/usr --with-ldap-sasl --with-kerberos=/usr --with-mime-magic=/etc/apache2/magic --with-zlib-dir=/usr --with-gd --with-png-dir=/usr/X11R6 --with-xpm-dir=/usr/X11R6 --with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local --with-freetype-dir=/usr/local --enable-exif
One other thing I’d like to mention: If you use zsh you can do tab completion on php configure options, this has to be one of the awesomest things I’ve seen in a while.
My treo 600 was dying and I was in the market for a new phone/pda. I had very specific requirements, so I wrote my own comparison chart, hopefully this will help others out there.
In the end I got a treo 680 and have been very happy.
UPDATE: I recently upgraded to OSX 10.5 Leopard and sync stopped working!! Now I’m forced to using The Missing Sync*
UPDATE:6th of Nisan, 5769 I’m now starting to hate my t680, it doesn’t sync any more, and the battery only lasts 1/2 a day (If I’m lucky), and sometimes it can’t connect to the network for hours ( not a problem with the network, I tested on other phones, and switched sim cards)
UPDATE:4th of Iyyar, 5769: Looking into getting a Nokia E71 now.

*I would not recommend the missing sync, it is not a finished product and it is way over priced. There is really nothing that you can’t do with out it.
**The same PiLoc hebrew works for the 600 and 650, but you need a new version for the 680
So it looks like my treo is finally dead, It doesn’t get any signal any more.

iTime Card utilizes iCal to record how much time I’ve spent working on a particular project. It is very simple, allowing you to Punch in, Punch out, and generate Invoices. It relies on iCal for managing projects and tasks, calendars are projects and todo’s are tasks.
Right now I’m working on how to release this, so that others might benefit. Please contact me if your interested
