And on to 10.9
There was a rumour that it was best to stop at 10.8, Mountain Lion but by the time I got round to it htis wasn’t an option. The Appstore only permitted an upgrade to Mavericks; is this a cat? The Appstore upgrade works fine.
And now onto Macports which is a pain, and I document on my Macports page.
Filevault is a constraint as well. You’ll need a better answer than I used if any of your pre 10.8 users had Filevault encrypted home directories.
10.5 to 10.6
Get an external disk and make a time machine backup.
- Install the OS from the disk, this seems pretty non-disruptive, all the Mac Apps seem to be working. Maybe we can get iMail to work
- Run a check for updates and install the new updates
- Upgrade Firefox, Thunderbird & Adium using their screen interfaces
- install Xcode from the disk and run check for updates. This is needed for macports.
Next work on Macports & the GUI
