Mac OS X 10.4.1 Spells Trouble

Category : Technology/1041OSXTiger.txt

I've quickly upgraded one machine to Mac OS X 10.4.1 - such system updates usually spell trouble. I was a bit concerned with the fiirst line I read, something like "may cause problems with 3rd party system configuration".

True enough, POP and IMAP services don't start up on their own after a system reboot. If you have Postfix Enabler, you'll need to do a Stop and then Start IMAP or POP again. But it's not consistent. Sometimes one or the other would start up fine on its own after rebooting. But after another restart, they'll both stop and need to be restarted manually.

I updated another system to Tiger 10.4.1 and get this same behaviour.

This is really troubling. I've checked a couple of the systems that have not yet been updated to 10.4.1 and they both work flawlessly, with all services resuming on their own after a reboot.

If you're running Postfix Enabler for Tiger, try not to update your system to 10.4.1 until I can understand what is happening - otherwise you have to manually stop and start POP and IMAP after each reboot.
