Loading... please wait.
  • Gah. I'm sorely tempted. I'm honestly just waiting for Camelbones to get updated and then I'll upgrade. But I'm still holding off spending that $150...
  • So, being the King of all things both Perl and Mac, tell me/us about your opinions of Perl in the new version. Are we finally on 5.8.8? Have they unbroken any of the broken stuff from Tiger?
    • Perl is 5.8.8. Apart from that, beats me. I don't use the system perl. :-)
  • You can dump sshkeychain. Leopard's got it's own now. (hint: sskc prefs, turn off it's environmental var creation, remove it from login-startup and logout and back in).

    I tried your example with helpdatad. I'm just not seeing it eat up the memory like that.

    But I too noticed the sweet difference in speed. I'm using a first-gen MBP 15" w/ 2GB ram and a dual G5 2Ghz w/ 3GB.
    • I am not seeing it all the time. Just sometimes.
    • Neat. I don't understand exactly how the ssh agent thing works though, which scares me. But I think I get the gist of it.
  • You mentioned perl, apache, etc. How'd you build your setup? Which Xcode do you have installed 3.0 or 2.5 or both?

    I'm seeing all sorts of weirdness w/ this upgraded 10.4 to 10.5 laptop (I have XCode 3,2.5, and used stock perl... ya, I know, I shouldn't have). make on slashcode dies terribly. I'm guessing I need to do a fresh install and swipe the /System/Library/Perl from it, and then go with all my LAMP devel stuff in /usr/local.

      I build all my own stuff (except MySQL, where I get a binary from mysql.com) and put it in /usr/local/. I don't use any stock stuff, except for the build tools from Xcode. It's been so long since I built this I am not sure what I used, probably gcc 3.
