Problems After Upgrading to 10.6

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 

Text Mate

The 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 !!

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

Hebrew dates.

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 .

Make not found..

Trying to install Xcode …
