Tiger? - NOT impressed

[ #28083 ]

I have wanted to upgrade to Tiger for quite some time and I have for a long time known that the acquisition of a new PowerBook would be come relevant sometime in the future, but any way - I went to the local Apple reseller and bought 10.4/Tiger.

The installation went quite easy as the prior upgrades have done, my TiBook has been running: 10.1-10.3 and now 10.4.

BUT then the trouble began, apparently a lot of things have changed since Panther.

At first I found out that my httpd.conf and /etc/hosts had been overwritten, nothing to cry about - the httpd.conf was easily recovered from the renamed copy left by the installation.

The /etc/hosts file is only used by me for development, so I could easily add the stuff I needed - but nothing happened.

Apparently Apple have made several changes from Panther so following this article, I could back to a more *nix-like behavior like in Panther where the /etc/hosts file has the highest precedence.

Next problem, the was not working at all, this simple fix giving a feeling of success for a few hours - but seems VERY wonky. I found a blog entry mentioned clearing the ~/Library/Preferences, not finding the idea of the fix particularly sane - it got me looking into the directory and there was quite a few things I could delete and then all of a sudden started running for a longer period of time????

Moving on, next problem...

Getting my development environment up and running with the standard installation I expected to be a walk in the park - NOT!

Perl is no longer installed with parts of the source code leaving the CPAN installation semi-broken, the suggestion is to build your own - so I did, Locale test 99 breaks, so currently I am in a kind of limbo - I am tired and I do not know in what direction to move.

I REALLY REALLY miss my Panther :-/
