From OSX to geek toy: The Sequel Install
I have updated my OS X Install and Customize Tips to include compatibilities with 10.1. Some hacks will not work on the new version, and in several cases, one needs to reapply tips. The modification for multiple icon sizes fails on 10.1 and I am yet looking to re-hack it. Meanwhile, the added notes on 10.1 should be read if you plan to upgrade.

[Editor's note: This is a very nicely done page with detailed explanations of many useful OS X hacks and tips that should be considered during installation and setup. Well worth a visit...]

Partition types?
Authored by: JPAnderson on Oct 14, '01 08:02:16PM

This looks like a great "hint" and I want to try it with my system, but I am not sure which partition types to use for the seven volumes suggested.

Specifically, is it best to go with AFS for the "Nine" and "Classic" partitions and UFS for the rest?

Or do the "Applications," "STM" and "Users" partitions need to be AFS+ to support both OS 9 and OS X?

Can I assume that the "GNU" volume must be UFS?

Does anyone have some advice?

I used HFS+ for all partitions. When I had the beta version of 10, I did once try UFS, but found it buggy. I don't know the status of UFS now.
