A few days ago Apple released a new version of the OSX (10.8) and I'm thinking about upgrading.

So, I was wondering if anyone had any problems with GIS applications (QGIS) and other similar software after the upgrade?

Thanks,

To my knowledge, there has not yet been extensive testing of QGIS 1.8.0 or master branch under Mac OS X 10.8 by developers. It would be appreciated if any issues found by users were not only noted here, but also opened as tickets at the QGIS project issue tracker. –  dakcarto Aug 1 '12 at 21:20

Here's one, I'm afraid, from one of our students, who is missing all of the components of the raster menu, except for the ubiquitous raster calculator:

After updating from OSX Lion to OSX Mountain lion (OSX Version 10.8.1), upon opening QGIS I get this message

"Unable to load GdalTools plugin. The required "osgeo [python-gdal]" module is missing. Install it and try again".

When I check the plugins, it looks installed and the box is checked. How do I resolve this issue? I have no menu options for the Raster dropdown menu, making this practical undoable on this machine.'

Damien, upgrading from 10.6 or 10.7 to 10.8 will clear any Python modules you have in the site-packages for Python 2.6 or 2.7. You have to re-install all of your Python modules again. Not a very user-friendly decision by Apple, IHMO. If using the kyngchaos.com installers, like GDAL 1.9 Complete, just run them again. –  dakcarto Sep 3 '12 at 9:28
    
Reinstalling the GDAL Complete frameworks from Kyngchaos.com is important for any OS change, QGIS upgrade, and has solved some plugin weirdness for me on occasion. –  Simbamangu Sep 6 '12 at 7:22
