My installation of Mac OS X Lion

 Permalink
This installation of Mac OS X Lion took my weekend and then some, to figure it all out and get things to work. Making the backup took almost a day. The order of the steps taken is now what it should have been, had I been able to see in the future. I hope these steps can help you to speed up your installation of Lion.

1) I downloaded Lion from the Mac App Store

2) Located it in /Applications, copied it to a backup disk.

3) Right-clicked it and chose 'Show package contents'
   - Opened the Folder 'Contents'
   - Opened the Folder 'SharedSupport'. In there is a file 'InstallESD.dmg'

4) Inserted a 8GB USB Flash Drive into an USB-slot of my Mac

5) Started Disk Utility
   - Selected the USB-flash drive in the bar on the left
   - Selected the pane 'Partition'
   - Chose 1 partition
   - Clicked 'Options' and selected 'GUID table'
   - Partitioned the drive
   - Selected the USB-flash drive in the bar on the left
   - Selected the pane 'Restore'
   - Dragged the USB-flash drive to the field 'Destination'
   - Dragged the 'InstallESD.dmg' to the field 'Source'
   - Clicked the 'Restore'-button
Now I can always boot from the flash drive and (re)install Lion.

6) I deactivated licenses of the following software (advise from OnOne):
   - All OnOne Software tools
   - RapidSearch (just to be on the safe side)

7) Updated the following software:
   - Tuxera NTFS
   - Glimmerblocker
   - Dockstar (Mail plug-in)
   - MailTags (Mail plug-in)
   - Drobo Dashboard
   - FileMaker Pro 6 (PPC-only) to 7 (Universal)
   - EyeTV
   - Perian
   - Flip4Mac WMV
   - ChronoSync and ChronoAgent

8) Removed following apps
   - DivX and 3iVX (Uninstallers are in their respective folders in /Applications)
   - FlagIt! (Mail plug-in) -> uninstalled this, development halts and Lion has now 7 flags of different colors. I also went into System Preferences and uninstalled SpiceShaker and removed the SpiceRack Prefpane since nothing else but FlagIt! was using this.
   - Adobe AIR (removed everything from '/Application Support' and '~/Application Support' folders)
Apple has made the folder 'Library' in the home folder invisible. But I can get to it via SHIFT-CMD-G and by entering the following path '~/library'.

9) Restarted my Mac
At the bongggg, I held down the SHIFT-key until a progress bar appeared: Mac starts in Safe-mode. From our national Apple Doctors (CARD Services) I learned that it is best to install major updates while in 'safe mode'.

10) When logged in, I attached a 1TB backup disk and used Carbon Copy Cloner to backup my Mac OS X startup disk.

11) After the backup had finished, I shutdown the Mac and disconnected all external hard disks, including my Drobo.

12) Started my Mac again in Safe-mode

13) Installed Mac OS X Lion
On my iMac, I simply clicked the Lion icon in the Dock. I booted my MacBook Pro from the USB-flash drive and installed Lion from there.

14) After installation, I let the Macs boot normally and logged in.

15) Performed Software Update; restarted normal

16) Opened 'App Store' from the Dock and downloaded 'Xcode'
   - I installed Xcode by starting 'Install Xcode' in /Applications

17) I rely on FastCGI (for Lasso 9), which is not included in Lion anymore. So I had to restore the file 'mod_fastcgi.so' from the backup disk, made in step 8. The Lion installer also removed the file 'Lasso8ConnectorforApache2.2.so' which is needed for Lasso 8. I copied both of them back. If you need these, you can find them and copy them to '/usr/libexec/apache2/' (same folder as in 10.6)

18) Then, my iPhone was not recognized, because somehow either the Lion or Xcode installers have removed a file call 'usbmuxd' and support files. To get this working again, I had to reinstall iTunes from scratch, like this:
   - Via 'Terminal', deleted iTunes: 'sudo rm -R /Applications/iTunes.app'
   - Next, I followed the steps outlined here: support.apple.com/kb/ht1747
   - Then I downloaded iTunes from Apple's site and installed it.
iPhone is back!

19) Activated the software licenses again (see step 6).

20) If you run Windows in Parallels 6 off a Bootcamp partition, and it won't start with Parallels, do what is described here: http://kb.parallels.com/en/111629

21) And the last thing I did was repair disk permissions via Disk Utility.

22) A restart and back to business.

23)
If QuickTime Player X is behaving strange, like when you click a player's window, you click through it, get rid of old files in the Preferences folder. Open Terminal and type the following exactly as written:
cd ~/Library/Preferences
rm *QuickT*X*

Mac OS X Dock Separators

 Permalink
Here are some Mac OS X Dock separators (dock-separators(apps-intel)). These are mainly dummy apps and folders with a transparent icon and names that consist of only spaces. The apps are all Intel-only. The .zip contains 6 apps, the first one has a name of 1 space and the 6th one has a name of 6 spaces, and 3 folders with the same transparent icon and spaces as names. Here's how I use them:

Katholieke Illustratie 14 januari 1940 Nr 14

 Permalink
En nu iets heel anders: een historisch document. Ik wist niet dat de Katholieke Illustratie bestond en zeker niet dat het al zo lang bestaat. Als je het doorkijkt is het, moet ik eerlijk zeggen, een leuk blad. Zeker voor die tijd waarin media nog schaars waren, het nieuws van 30km verderop al 'buitenlands' nieuws was en sommigen in het oosten des lands in plaggenhutten woonden (dit waren géén vakantiegangers of terug-naar-de-natuur freaks). Alleen al voor de grafici is dit blad leuk, gezien de verscheidenheid aan advertenties en hoe deze er destijds uitzagen. De .zip is prima en heel goed te lezen met SimpleComic of een andere Comicbook-reader.
Het papieren exemplaar gaat binnenkort naar de H.A.N.D., tenzij iemand anders het graag wil hebben. Mail me dan.

Veel leesplezier!
