Der Pechvogel

August 30, 2007

The bad luck with my MacBook continues, less than 24h before finally getting rid of it. The harddisk (a 80GB Seagate Momentus 5400.2) stopped working today while I was reinstalling the operating system so that my sister has a clean system. Fortunately, all my data is safely backed up. Still this made me really angry.

Apple releases broken update

August 21, 2007

Updating Mac OS X to 10.4.10 also updates QuickTime to 7.2, which if your on an Intel Mac will very likely cause all your Rosseta applications to stop working. There is an official fix which is not only involved, but it sometimes does not work. You might get this error when running update_prebinding:

dyld: re-prebound: 0x90bee000 /usr/lib/libgcc_s.1.dylib
update_prebinding: error: dependent dylib is not prebound
update_prebinding: error 256 running update_prebinding_core

Then you need to follow the instructions here.

Some people in the Apple QA team should get a kick in the balls for this.

The Latest Mac Bug Bugging Me

[Added 14:45 2007-03-26] Fixed by removing the ~/Library/Fonts/ directory and then clearing the font cache using Font Finagler. It appears that there were more versions of the same font installed in different places. So this was not just an user interface bug, but really a misconfiguration problem. The culprits were probably the Microsoft Web Fonts I installed using FontBook, but I don’t want to reproduce it again to test this theory.
