Case-Sensitive File System

Category : Technology

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.

It took me some time to get a Mac free that I can use for this experiment. To test Postfix Enabler, I've had a machine running on 10.3.8, one on 10.3.9, a couple on Tiger (one of which I don't touch so that I can see what files came with the original install), and now one with this new variation. All sacrificed on the altar of Quality Control.
