Postfix Enabler 1.1.3 for Case-sensitive Systems
Category : Commentary/PFE113Announce.txt
Okay, I think I've solved it. We now have a system that will work also on systems that have been formatted case-sensitive - i.e., as Mac OS X Extended Journaled (case sensitive).
This will be version 1.1.3. This is probably the last of the compatibility fixes for people moving over to Tiger. I hope that after that it'll all settle down and then we can move to something new.
Case-Sensitive File System
Category : Technology/case-sensitiveSystems.txt
I've just formatted a Mac with a case-sensitive file system. Mac OS X is case-insensitive by default (because that's what Mac users are used to) but I've had a couple of cases where the users had formatted it as Mac OS X Journaled Extended (case sensitive). A Linux user coming back to the Mac may want to keep the file system the way it was in Linux, which is case sensitive, like in most Unix systems. Unfortunately Postfix Enabler breaks when faced with that.
It'll be interesting to see how a Mac works under this format, and to see if I can get Postfix Enabler to run properly on case-sensitive systems. We'll see how it goes.
