I updated my machines to Lion today. Pretty nice, but a couple of teething issues:
1. If you have a dual monitor setup and use the new fullscreen feature for an app on one monitor, the other one gets blanked out. The web is a buzz with this issue and a lot of people, including me, aren’t too pleased about this. Full screening Terminal is pretty cool, but not at the expense of what I have going on my other monitor.
2. Software Update is giving me two updates for the same app, and downloading them twice as well:
3. I opened Eclipse for the first time and it said I didn’t have a Java Runtime. It gave me the option to download one, however since Software Update was already running (see 2) it threw an error with a title of TitleBusyNamed:
4. Why did it screw up my JDK installs anyway? Poking around /Library/Java, all of the various symlinks are still there, but no actual JDK. Spring cleaning perhaps.
Edit: As it turns out, Apple is no longer shipping a JDK for OS X and is leaving it up to Oracle. I knew that was coming, just wasn’t sure when. It is apparently available via Software Update as when you launch an app that uses Java it will go off and fetch it, however I keep getting:
So, if like me you are having problems getting a JDK installed, you can get the Java for Mac OS X 10.7 Developer Package (i.e. the JDK) manually from http://connect.apple.com. Sign in and click the ‘Java’ section on the right.
