The problem where my G4 PowerBook wouldn't start up, continued to happen. Then the computer just started freezing. When I tried to boot it back up, it wouldn't start back up. So we decided to get a new MacBook Pro. I drove to the Apple Store and picked it up.
Setting up went smoother than I expected. I removed the hard drive from the PowerBook, and put it in a firewire enclosure. Then when I ran the setup process, I used the import data from mounted drive, and after several hours, the installation was finished. All of my settings and applications had been copied over. (Thank you J.S.)
There were a couple issues with the transition:
- The transition copied Little Snitch to the new user account. This caused a kernel panic on startup. Once I uninstalled it, everything booted fine.
- Some of the screen savers that I wrote don't work. I will need to compile these as Universal binaries.
- So far, I haven't Sizzling Keys to control iTunes through Synergy. (On the MacBook Pro keyboard, it works fine.)
