Install iLife 04 on Mac OS X Server
Authored by: ising4jesus on Nov 08, '04 02:05:15AM
Yes, there IS a problem with iLife 04 and OS X Server. In particular, there is a problem with Garageband. I was experiencing lots of problems using Garageband on OS X Server. It had a nasty tendancy to LOSE my recorded audio files!!! The weird part was that the loops and music structure were O.K., and that it didn't always lose things. I was about to just give up on Garageband completely, but I just recently found the reason for this.

On Apple's web site, I found an obscure warning about OS X Server "File Services" not liking pound signs (#) in filenames. The problem is that the pound sign, when followed by hexidecimal digits, will be INTERPRETED instead of read as part of the filename. The notice warned that DATA LOSS can occur!!! ref: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107144

Well, it just so happens that Garageband uses a pound sign followed by digits to name recorded audio files... so strange things happens when you save your recorded audio!!!
