Snow Leopard Break Fix List

Symptom:

After upgrading Snow Leopard I have started to experience many things that were broken. This lists the issues and fixes if I learn about them.

The List:
  • Development environment (gcc, make etc): Requires a re-installation of Xcode that came with the Leopard CD.
  • /usr/include/stdarg.h:4:25 Error when building something: Apprently needs OS 10.4 SDK installed and many stuff have to use gcc-4.0 to build. While updating Xcode, be sure to add that optional 10.4! Once you do that do
export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.0

In addition removing -arch pcc from the build line and leaving only -arch i386 may get your to build what you want.
  • macports: Get the Snow Leopard version from MacPorts web site.
  • HP Printer Driver: See my previous post. If you HAD an HP printer then you may need to completely clean the driver software from your Mac.
  • CISCO VPN Client 4.9.01: Re-installing will reactive the program.
