OS X Mavericks :: After Upgrade From Snow Leopard - Python 3.3 Scripts Fail

Jul 1, 2014

After upgrade to Mavericks 10.9.3 from Snow Leopard my Python3.3 scripts, called through a shellscript, fail. They work fine when called from Python 3.3 in Terminal. The issue appears to be the path. Currently Python 3.3 is located in /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.3, whereas all the other installations are in /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/..., and include v2.3, v2.5, v2.6 & v2.7, plus a "Current" folder alias. I read somewhere that simply adding the new path was not advisable. If that is true, what's the best way to include other version.

OS X Mavericks :: Apps And Stuff Disappear When Upgrade From Snow Leopard

Sep 7, 2014

Will my apps and stuff and things I've downloaded disappear when I upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks? I am afraid everything will go away Do I need a USB to put my stuff in and then put it back when Mavericks has been applied? Because i'm downloading Mavericks right now and my iMac is so old it doesn't support half the stuff the new ones do. It was made in early 2009. And also, if it will stay, would it go away if I entered a different apple ID when it will reboot and say "Enter APPLE ID"

OS X :: Leopard Upgrade To Snow Leopard ... The Same As The Full Version Of Snow Leopard?

Jun 13, 2009

... long time reader, first time poster!! So I'm doing it. I'm switching from PC to Mac. I've been waiting for a while now and the new MacBook Pro's have convinced me. I'm buying the 13 inch this week.

However I'm slightly worried about the upgrade to Snow Leopard in September.

My question is if I buy a new MacBook Pro this week and upgrade from the current version of Leopard to Snow Leopard will it be the EXACT same as the version of Snow Leopard that ships with new MacBooks after September?

Is the upgrade just the same as the full software version available post September? Does the upgrade it just detect if you have the previous software and installs as if it were the full? Or does it just "patch" things depending on what's different from previous versions?

I can wait till after Snow Leopard is released in September 09 if it is different to Leopard upgraded to Snow Leopard.

Applications :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard Or Install Snow Leopard?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm currently using a MBP 13 inch and am running Leopard on it.

I just bought a copy of snow leopard today but i don't know if I should do a direct upgrade from leopard to snow leopard, or wipe my MBP and do a fresh install so i have snow leopard on a clean slate.

Have any of you tried the second option before? Or do any of you have advice on which path I should take?

OS X :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard/any Need To Upgrade Your RAM?

Aug 30, 2009

I am curious about the system requirement of Snow Leopard. Since the performance and speed are better on SL, I think Snow Leopard will consume a little bit more resource of our macs., although I know Snow Leopard is just only the refinement of the software.

So, my question is that WILL YOU UPGRADE YOUR RAM OF YOUR MAC?

OS X V10.5 Leopard :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard Free For MobileMe Users?

May 27, 2012

I've recently acquired an iMac and wanted to upgrade to Lion, however I believe I need to upgrade from Leopard to Snow Leopard first - which could prove to end up costing a fortune! I've read recently that Apple are offering the upgrade to Snow Leopard free of charge for MobileMe users, however when I've followed a link to fill in a request form, this just takes me to the Find My Phone feature on iCloud.

OS X :: Mac Mini Leopard To Snow Leopard Unique Upgrade?

Jun 10, 2010

My brother and parents have a Mac Mini each.

They have not the latest generation but the prior Intel generation -- that shipped with Leopard.

Being the family IT guy, last time I was in town I purchased the Snow Leopard retail DVD family pack upgrade and upgraded my parents machines to Snow Leopard. I couldn't upgrade my brother's mini because he had it away at school.

Now he is back at my parents house (as am I) and I was all set to upgrade his machine to Snow Leopard but I can't find the retail install disk I purchased.

However, I do have the Snow Leopard Mac Mini OSX install DVD that shipped with my recently purchased (latest generation) Mac Mini.

Question -- does anyone know if I could use this latest generation Snow Leopard Mac Mini system install DVD (the one that shipped with my mac Mini) to upgrade my brother's previous generation mac mini running Leopard to snow leopard.

Not looking to do a clean install but rather the upgrade.

Anyhow ever tried this? I obviously don't want to upgrade his previous generation machine with drivers, etc. for my latest generation --- rather JUST get his leopard upgraded to snow leopard.

Software :: Upgrade From Leopard To Snow Leopard Not Working?

Feb 17, 2010

I have mac mini (early 2009) running leopard and want to upgrade to snow leopard. I've bought a disk from a local store and when I try to install I get as far as 45 minutes to go when the installer reboots the computer and says it will continue to install after reboot. So it reboots kicks the disk out and reboots back into Leopard. The Apple site says it is probably a bad disk, so I got another one, still does the same. Apple also says it might be the dvd drive, I have no other issues with the drive, it installs the original leopard disks without problem, it reads video dvd's without problem, it verifies the snow disk as perfect.

OS X :: Would You Upgrade To Snow Leopard Again?

Sep 6, 2009

I have the latest and greatest 10.5.whatever and while I bought and own the new 10.6 DVD I have yet to upgrade. The primary reason is that I use PGP to encrypt my disks and it is not compatible with 10.6 so I'd have to unencrypt and uninstall PGP Full Disk Encryption. (And that takes DAYS!). Plus, I use Adobe CS3 and I understand that has hiccups with Snow Leopard as well. If you upgraded, would you do it again? To be honest, I bought the upgrade because it was cheap and I like to have the latest and greatest but while this is the latest I'm not sure this is the greatest. (I don't even know what the upgrade offers me!)

OS X :: Snow Leopard Upgrade Now Or Later?

Sep 10, 2009

How many of you are just fine using 10.5.8 and find no need to upgrade to Snow Leopard? This reminds me of the company I work for which has all company PCs running on XP and refuses to upgrade any company computer to Vista for the time being. I know, I know, Mac OS is way better...but I've read about incompatibility issues and it makes me wonder, what's the worst that can happen if I decide to wait a good 3-4 months to do the upgrade?

OS X :: Wants To Upgrade Snow Leopard

Dec 9, 2009

So I have 2 issues. My first one is that when I upgraded to Snow leopard, i cannot use safari. it says I have v4.0.1. and go to Apple store and download it though I'm a little confused and don't wanna mess this up. Also on my desktop I have a copy of the Applications folder and an Applications alias?? I tried putting just the app folder in the trash but then I can't open anything up. I usually just go through the finder and through Mac HD to find stuff for now as I'm new to Mac.

MacBook :: Upgrade To SSD With Snow Leopard?

Jun 12, 2009

I've never updated an OS before, so this probably appears to be very noob-ish. I currently have a refurb 2.4 al macbook. I can't return it, so instead of whining and complaining (past that stage) I'm looking at it as thus: I'm one of very few people to have an aluminum macbook. I want to upgrade to a SSD when Snow Leopard is released in September. How do I make this happen? Is it as simple as swapping the hard drive and then booting from the SL install disks? Almost seems too easy. Also, do you guys think it's a good idea to swap the stock 250GB HDD for an SSD (120GB Vertex) and use the HDD as an external?

OS X :: SSH Broken After Snow Leopard Upgrade

Sep 8, 2009

Ok ever since the SL upgrade I cant ssh to my machine. I can't even ssh to it locally. I use ssh in order to work around the screen sharing without mobile me subscription. Ssh does not accept my password and after 3 failed attempts it quits. I've done ssh-keygen, sudo ssh... and even tried the full path /usr/bin/ssh (which I believed worked once) but I may have been hallucinating from all the madness. Here's the verbose logging...I'm afraid to muck with the ssh config files...Why would this all of a sudden stop working?

OS X :: Upgrade Tiger To Snow Leopard

Now that's it's been out for awhile, and based on people's experiences, if I'm looking to upgrade Tiger to Snow Leopard, should I get the box set or no? I rarely use the "i" suites as it is. Just wondering what might be the best route, since apparently the box set doesn't include anything to do with Leopard.

OS X :: When To Upgrade (Install Snow Leopard)

Sep 17, 2009

I bought a copy of SL a couple of weeks ago to update my early 2008 MBP, 4 GB memory. But after reading lots of complaints I decided to hold off until some bug fixes come out. Well....how long should I wait? How many of you are happy that you upgraded? Leopard works just fine for me, so I don't want to mess that up for no real reason.

OS X :: Snow Leopard Upgrade ( And ILife )

I'm still running 10.4.11 on my late 2007 BlackBook. If I do a clean install using just the cheap Snow Leopard upgrade disk will I have iPhoto etc. or do I need to buy iLife? Also, could you please recommend an idiot-proof, step-by-step guide to formatting the HD and installing Snow Leopard from scratch with the upgrade disk?
