Mountain Lion upgrade

Posted: 2012-08-27

Things I need to remember when updating to Mountain Lion. This list could well grow over time ;)

Paths - /etc/paths get's written back to standard with /usr/local/bin last

Set to:

  • /opt/local/bin
  • /usr/local/bin
  • /usr/bin
  • /bin
  • /usr/sbin
  • /sbin

Permissions on /usr/local

Machomebrew needs /usr/local to be writable - remember to reset ownership after update.

Command line tools - XCode

Reinstall command line tools from xcode before running any machomebrew updates.

Java runtime

Run Intellij (or other java app) to trigger an install of a JVM.
