Default Snow Leopard

Jim:
Have you run Numerology in Snow Leopard?
Anything we should be aware of before upgrading?
Any changes to core audio that you know of?

thanks in advance.

I've done a couple quick tests on dev builds of 10.6, and have one installed
on my laptop, but haven't checked in a couple months. I don't know of any significant core audio changes. I'll make a note to test the 2.2 build on the version of 10.6 I have now in a day or two.

I will probably move over to 10.6 mid-september. I find it is always prudent to wait a few weeks to see what unexpected problems pop up...

Cheers,
Jim

Yeah no kidding. As a rule of thumb I always wait at least a month or two before upgrading. If it ain't broke don't break it. Although I do have to say with what I've been hearing about the overall increased zippiness of Snow Leopard, I'm very tempted to jump in early. There have been a couple threads on the ableton live forums where people have stated that the CPU overhead actually goes down with 10.6... and its so cheap..... no.... don't do it!

Thanks for posting those links.

What I do for my own computers is that I always have two or more partitions around so I can migrate from one major OS version to the next smoothly. It goes something like this:

- When first getting a new computer, I split the disk into two partitions.
- I install the current major OS Version on one partition, and use that for my main working drive.
- I also install the previous major OS version on the other partition. (I always need it for testing).
- When the next major OS release comes along, I archive the older OS version and do a fresh install of the new one on the same partition.
- Over time (usually several weeks) I slowly move various software tasks to the new partition.

That arrangement allows me to move back and forth as necessary based on software compatibility, etc.

Cheers,
Jim

An unusual change in 10.6: Disk capacities are now reported in base-10 values:

Corlin here:
I just set up a clean install of Snow Leopard.
On a bootable external drive.
Numerology seams to work. (more testing later)

By the way if you would like me to test other software let me know ...

note:
I am still running Logic 8, do to economics.
and there seams to be problem with "soundflower" ..

will keep you posted

the system is a little more quick. but I am not running very many 3rd party apps, so who knows...

I've been told Apple's claims of regained HD space with Snow Leopard are -not- influenced by this change in the definition of a gigabyte, in case that was the first thing that popped in anyone else's head.

It is strange though!

That is true -- the base install size has dropped quite a bit (gigabytes). I also know that h264 video playback is much improved, cpu-wise. In both cases, they are taking things that they learned porting OS X to the iPhone chipset (smaller install sizes, more efficient video playback) and using them to improve the desktop version.

Cheers,
Jim
