Little pain(s) of being a Lion

If you have switched to Mac Os X Lion, you have to cohabit with some little issue deriving from update. I will update this list as far as I’ll discover the pair  <issue, solution>:

  1. If you use CUDA, you need to update it. Fortunately this can be done easily since NVIDIA have already published the developer driver here
  2. The git path seems to be broken. If you try “git” from bash you’ll get “command not found”. The solution is simply adding the path into the right file (e.g. .bash_profile): you can find the git executable in /usr/local/git/bin
  3. Mac OS X 10.7 Lion hides the ~/Library directory by default. This is easy to reverse with a terminal command:

    chflags nohidden ~/Library/

Stay tuned for other updates 🙂



New personal site

After years thinking about it, finally I’ve done it: I’ve registered a custom domain (a simple URL redirect) and I’ve create an app on the popular cloud hosting site Heroku: it uses the new Clojure support feature and the new (and cool) Clojure mini MVC Framework Noir.

The site is a bit slow the first time you visit it, because the app is pushed out of cache after a period of inactivity, but man, it’s free!
I really like the site layout (and Jquery is too cool). What do you think about it? Let me know! Ah, here is the url, visit it!
