Experiences of Upgrading or Using Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger

Tiger Upgrade

This section is for noting experiences, collecting information, tips, etc. for upgrading a Mac to Tiger

If you use XCode (previously known as Developer Tools) you will need to upgrade this separately - the DVD/CD has a separate installer for this.

If you use fink or darwinports, you will need to upgrade them after installing Tiger.

X11 and ssh: After installing Tiger, you may find that X11 no longer behaves nicely with windows launched remotely over ssh, e.g. if you use commands such as ssh hostname xterm. Symptoms include X errors being displayed, cut and paste operations failing and windows disappearing. This seems to be fixed by using the -Y option to ssh to force it to use trusted X11 forwarding, e.g. ssh -Y hostname xterm.
