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 🙂
