    I updated, don't have any problems so far, but Safari doesn't seem faster, if anything possibly slower to start up (more bounces than before), and slower to render pages (but maybe that's an illusion).

    Report any problems, including with third party software!

    Any issues with the Logitech Control Software or the Microsoft AU Daemon? I think they were giving me booting trouble in 10.4.4. It got tired of +90 second boots.

    Is it safe to remove the Microsoft AU Daemon? I can update Office 2004 myself using the standalone updaters.

    It took a restart before it let me log into my iBook. It wouldn't accept my password for some reason. My iMac has been fine though. :)

    I'm having problems waking from sleep on my PowerMac G4 Dually MDD. Anyone know a fix... is it just me?

    There is a universal version just released. Search the forums for the thread.

    Do an Archive and Install of the operating system. Apple makes it pretty hard.

    I said I would let you know in your other thread, but it was closed. Anyway, I installed it on the MDD in my sig with no problems sleeping or waking up from sleep whatsoever. Do you have any PCI USB 2.0 cards installed?

    It might make you think about waiting before downloading an update before you see whether it's safe or not.

    You are right, and even though I've had no problems so far, I told myself that I'll wait a few days or even a month or so before installing any further updates. Especially that 10.4.5 had nothing in it that especially interested me... I don't have Front Row or other concerns this apparently addressed. Makes sense, just to see if any problems creep up. But guess what, my resolve lasted all of 2.5 minutes from the moment I learned there was an update. Go figure :D

    As Mr. Mister said, an Archive and Install will do it, but I Erased and installed (my HD was acting up.)

    I know what you mean. I've done it and regretted it. I even waited until 10.4.1 was available before installing Tiger and got hurt. Thankfully, having had to be in charge of large corporate computers, I'm usually more cautious, but that seems to be changing. Oops! :eek:

    yeah only install this update if you have an intel machine. my powerbook has froze numerous times today as well as a few kernel panics where the grey box comes on screen to tell you to restart. i'll have to look into the archive and install option.

    No problems installing the update from "software update" for me. Used Onyx afterward, just in case.

    Chicken of the VNC no longer appears to work (and yes, I noticed this before experimenting with the latestpics code). I get a beachball and have to force quit.

    I just booted it up this morning (first time since I installed the update last night) before going to school; nothing drastic happened, all seems well.

    Doh, I'm an idiot. I didn't have the network cabled connected to the Linux machine I was trying to VNC to.

    Any OpenGL performance changes? Higher/lower game framerate?

    no problem

    This update didn't do anything to my system.

    Nothing changed, nothing got broken, front row is fine..actually might be better...


    Pretty small update.
