Portability of images
Authored by: pmccann on Dec 21, '05 06:25:35PM

I'm a big fan of Disk Utility to clone drives (have been ever since 10.4, when CCC went awol for a while. Having used Disk Utility there was no reason to return, particularly given the block copying option in DU.)

Anyway, regarding portability: I've never had a problem with my images being built on one machine and transferred to another **as long as I remember to only use the combo updaters**. That is, don't just let a 10.4.2 to 10.4.3 software update run, as it'll be selective about what gets updated (based on the machine in question).

OK, that's not entirely true: the one thing that I haven't yet got working on my stock image (developed on an eMac, deployed to powerbooks, ibooks, imacs) is the remote control with the new imacs. Anyone know what the key is here.

That is: I'd like to get the remote control that comes with the isight imacs to work on those machines by installing something (what???) onto a stock standard 10.4.3 image developed on an eMac.

Thanks for any help,
