Description Brian Daniel 2011-12-01 09:21:47 EST
On previous Mac OSX versions there was a hidden directory called '.MacOSX' where the environment.plist file could set environment variables.  With Lion (10.7) that directory is gone.  The DIRSIG_HOME environment variable must be set to run dirsig_edit.  Has anyone figured out where to set the environment variable to run dirsig_edit in Lion?  Thanks.

I had to create the .MacOSX directory and copy the environment.plist file into it.  I then had to reboot.  It may be worth mentioning in the release notes.
