I upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite on my MacBook tonight and thought I’d share some of the fixes I had to apply to get my development environment set up again. I’ll continue to update this post as I discover new things that aren’t quite working the same as before.
- upgrade from Mavericks opens a new app behind App Store to actually do the Yosemite install — before I was able to upgrade, I thought the App Store had wigged out and wanted to redownload the 5GB Yosemite, but no, it just hid the installer from me.
- fix Java complaints in my term by installing JDK — thanks to OS X Daily.
- Google Drive unresponsive icon in menu bar
- fix Homebrew requiring an old version of Ruby — that’s the Google cached version of http://patrickcoffey.io/post/fixing-brew-yosemite since the site was down for me.
psqlnot starting; I also did
brew unlink postgresql && brew link postgresqlfrom this thread.
- stop Spotlight from sending your data to Apple
- The Messages icon in the menu bar was invisible in dark mode until I clicked it and chose ‘New Message’. That prompted the icon to update to be white and thus visible.
