Typo Upgrade

Typo has seemed a little off lately. Last night I finally broke and upgraded. Typo 4.0.x => 4.1.1

Backup

pg_dump -U typouser -D typodb > 2007-10-09.typo.dump
createdb -U pgsuper -U typoeuser -D typodbnew
Welcome to psql 8.1.5, the PostgreSQL interactive terminal.

       \? for help with psql commands
       \g or terminate with semicolon to execute query
       \q to quit

typodbnew=> \i 2007-10-09.typo.dump

Software Upgrades

Now I used Portage to update all of the various rails and ruby packages. This went swimmingly.

After the update, my old blog instance failed to run. *whoops*. I forget the error, and I don't really care. But note: It may be that with the latest Ruby and Rails packages, Typo 4.0.3 will have a problem.

Typo Install

I don't know how new it is, but it's new to me: The typo install command. The moral of this story boils down to this:

  • Run your updates from portage.

  • Install typo via gem

    gem install typo
    

      Copy typo to a new folder:

      cp -aR ~/typo-jms-4.0.0 ~/typo-jms-4.1.1
      

      The major problem came in that I never used the typo command before, after a lot of trial and error and a DROPPED DATABASE, I discovered this.
