The Snow Leopard reference is pretty much as Leopard's but it differs in the post puppet packages which will be listed here:

Post-puppet packages

Since the deployment of Puppet, future changes to the ref platform are management by it. Because of this, providing _exact_ installation instructions can be tricky. All of the packages listed below are installed on the ref platform and some installation guidelines are provided. Looking at the osx talos puppet-manifests repository may help if you are having trouble.


  • Mercurial 1.3.1 got deployed to all talos r3 Snow Leopard slaves.
  • 1df033a8e9b0
  • The puppet equivalent is:
cd /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages
/usr/bin/tar -xzf /N/talos/mac/darwin10/mercurial-1.3.1.tar.gz
# as root
cd /usr/local/bin
cp /N/talos/mac/hg .
mkdir /Users/cltbld/bin
ln -s /usr/bin/python2.5 /Users/cltbld/bin/python
cp /N/talos/mac/darwin10/.bash_profile /Users/cltbld/.bash_profile

  • TODO document the following:

Manage dock and screen resolution

  • Deployed with 04612be9bfeb
  • A new screen resolution (1600x1200) was deployed in bug 622229.
  • The files deployed are:

Update from 10.6.2 to 10.6.6

sudo softwareupdate --install MacOSXUpdCombo10.6.6-10.6.6"

This file isn't available via softwareupdate anymore, but it is available for download at (thanks Nick!). It's in /N/production/darwin10-i386/test/DMGs/ on the puppet servers, too. It seems this needs to be installed manually, via VNC, although in bug 643506 the install failed, so YMMV.

Disable bluetooth
