fink with 10.10 Yosemite

I'm finally trying out Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite)

system_profiler SPSoftwareDataType | grep 'System Version'

      System Version: OS X 10.10.1 (14B25)

uname -s -r

Darwin 14.0.0

xcodebuild -version
Xcode 6.1.1
Build version 6A2008a

I had to accept the xcode license:

sudo xcodebuild -license

My first serious PITA was Java.  I used the fink script for kickstarting and Java kept saying it needed to be installed.  I installed Java8 u25 and every time I tried to run java or javac, I got a GUI popup dialog asking me to install Java.  I installed Java7 and thing seem to work better now.

javac  -version
javac 1.7.0_71

Since I'm a fink developer, here is me setting up cvs as the update method for fink.

fink selfupdate # Select rsync
fink install cvs
fink selfupdate -m cvs

10.10 fink only has python 3.4 (no more 3.2 or 3.3), so I've got some cleanup to do.  Thanks to Hanspeter for pointing that out.

fink install wget
fink install python3
