sjs hates software: Mac OS X Tiger: “It Just Works”

I thought I was immune, but I drank the Kool Aid. I entered the Reality Distortion Field. Mac OS X 10.4 “Tiger” is my Saviour. Resistance is useless. So I upgraded. And everything broke.

Yeah, his thoughts here are pretty much what I thought. Glad I was just doing audio for shits and giggles and not for any professional reason, or I’d have wiped and reinstalled Panther.

  1. I’ve been lucky. Everything has pretty much worked, except for iSync, which still stubbornly refuses to do anything with my Cingular Treo 650. I haven’t synced in weeks, and I can’t get my pim-like info onto my laptop, which I hate. I am using BackupBuddy on the Treo at least, so I am not entirely hosed, but I am pretty annoyed. One of the reasons I bought a Treo was to avoid having to sync myriad devices, which I guess should teach me a good lesson about REDUNDANCY, dammit.

  2. I’m expecting to install Tiger this week. I skimmed the Gimp forums for a Tiger discussion, but didn’t find anyone mentioning problems. Have you resolved the Gimp issues yet? Do the binaries run or is it a compilation issue?

  3. Gimp works great from Fink, no problems there except that I couldn’t get xsane to work as a gimp plugin. It runs fine separately though.
