Big Sur macOS 11.2 released

Upgraded to 11.2 today with software update and it was smooth. No issues faced with command line upgrade

softwareupdate --install --restart --all

I normally check his opinion before jumping in but took a chance this time… If I had I might have held off a bit due to the issues he had (but I’m not on M1 yet).(well, for testing we have to latest on some Macs and VMs)

He also wrote:

Some have also report it taking longer to install than previous updates, although that wasn’t my experience.

I found it took a while on one of my Macs (the other was an overnight).

Yet again it’s moved httpd.conf to relocated items on desktop. Gah!

On the other hand maybe yay! (Yay if there’s been an Apache Webserver or PHP update.)

It only - before Big Sur - used to do that on a major release boundary.

I have to re-apply these changes after every point-update:

  1. ssh_config
  2. sshd_config
  3. enable Touch ID for sudo

With 11.2, I also had to re-apply the speed-up Time Machine option in /etc/syslog.conf.

The first 3 happen so often I now have a script to re-apply them so I don’t have to manually edit the files every time.

Off topic, but this is an excellent tip – had never run across it before in MT’s blog. Thanks for the link.
