Return of the Mac

November 13, 2007 at 20:12 · Filed under mac

OSX Tiger

I have my Powerbook G4 back now. Woooot! It has a fresh install of 10.4.6 on it from the Mac repair shop.

The question is, what do I do with my CCC backup firewire HDD? Clone it back? Migrate it back?

Having watched others roll into 10.5 aka Leopard, I thought it would be time for me to roll into a fresh computer as well. Sans postgresql, custom php install, CVS repository and the last 2 years of installed junk. (Not saying CVS/PHP/PostgreSQL are junk!)

So I’m doing it. I’m migrating. A fresh install – and we will see how good it is. The advantage? A newer faster install.Disadvantages? Days spend getting things right again. But that iss the fun part for a geek! If we can’t tweek, what else is there.

I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.

I upgraded and CVS kept working for me. My Entropy PHP install seems to have broken, as has permissions on my sites directory. MySQL was happy across the upgrade.

But yeah, start off fresh and upgrade to Leopard right away. You know you wanna!
