    Updated to 10.4.9, now webcam wont work with iChat

    Hey all. Hope this is the right thread for this. My mom runs Tiger on a G4 Powerbook. We normally use iChat to do videochat. She runs iChatUSB to enable her logitech 4000 to work with iChat. We had no problem so far.

    Until she updated to 10.4.9.

    Now, we cannot videochat. A message on her side tells her that another program is using her camera. On my side, I can see she has a camera icon, but anytime I try to videochat with her, I get a declined message.

    Any thoughts on how we can resolve this? She has the logitech driver installed as well as the iChatUSB (registered, not the trial version) on her powerbook.:confused:

    Since 10.4.9 might support the camera on its own, have you thought about removing the Logitech drives and iChatUSB?

    The update broke my iTunes; it would still open, but I couldn't get it to list or play my songs. After several attempts at fiddling, repairing permissions, deleting preferences etc I found success deleting the app, downloading from the Apple site and reinstalling. Phew!

    Since I went to 10.4.9 I keep getting a notice that syndicationagent.app has been updated and would I like to update. If you choose change all it sucks all memory to active and starts doing page in and page out. The system then starts crawling untill you restart. The problem is that when I say don't change it comes back after a small amount of time. Does anyone have any clue of what I can do to stop this from showing up. It is starting to become annoying.

    this is minor, but I guess that's what this thread is for...

    I play warcraft 3 off of a disk image (yes, I legally own the game... 2 copies, in fact :rolleyes: ) so that I don't have to bother with a physical CD. Since updating, when I mount the image, I get this message:

    With options to Open/Don't Open.

    It just to just mount the CD image in about a second. No big deal, but a minor annoyance.

    Well, the iCal-alarm bug (where it shows offscreen) has not been fixed for me.

    This is probably in response to all the "Month of Apple Bugs" bugs that dealt with Disk Utility. They likely couldn't actually FIX the issues in that short of a time, but adding a warning is a decent-enough first step.

    I guess... if a warning is warranted. But in this case, I can't see how it is; this disk image is totally safe!

    After I started to download and install the 10.4.9 update I started taking care of a few other things. I came back to see a kernal panic on the screen. I did a reset. The system sat on the nlue screen after login for about 4 minutes, then finally loaded. I ran techtool pro and everything seems fine. I was about to call Apple. When I first say the kernal panic I was reminded of my roomate tripping over the power cord of my iMac as I was doing a clean install. That caused the boot sequence to get messed up and I have to type "rboot" at the nice UNIX screen it gave to to boot it up. It meased up the firmware, maybe? I did remember that reformatting the drive did not help. I was rather scared. The powerbook was smoother, but still had some issues.

    10.4.9 update hung on iBook G3, then would not boot past the grey screen, apple logo never appears.

    Eventually booted into safe mode, (hold shift at chime) Repaired Permissions in Disk Utility and ran Automation in Onyx, rebooted. all good now (after about 3hrs of mild concern).

    Also 10.4.9 added iSync support for the SE K610i phone - woo hoo.

    My eject button doesn't seem to work well. It seems to not work at all or it is delayed or I have to push it a lot before it does work.

    Yes, this is a new feature. It will (hopefully) prevent any accidental disk ejections (especially one notebooks).

    Just hold it down for a second and your disk will eject. :)

    I love the new "paused-eject" feature. I was accidentally hitting the Eject key instead of the Delete key way too often when I had my MacBook.

    I thought it had borked my iMac. After installing the Combo update, it booted into the error gray screen with the circle with a line through it. I restarted and it didn't even get that far, staying stuck on an empty gray screen.

    I couldn't even boot off my external drive or the install disk.

    Finally, I remembered that I'd heard USB devices can sometimes cause such behaviour after OS updates, so I disconnected my USB printer and removed a thumb drive and it rebooted.

    Everything seems fine after that.

    Having a similar issue on a G3 Pismo, it's hanging at the apple screen. Will attempt a safe boot I suppose.

    Same here. Weird.

    Other than that, it runs like butter on my MBP.

    Ahh, awesome. I always press the eject key accidentaly. Well, I guess 4.9 completly runs like butter for me. :D

    Safari RSS / .Mac Bookmark Sync bug fixed

    10.4.9 fixed the bug where RSS feeds would not update in Safari when "Sync Bookmarks with .Mac" was selected in Preferences.

    OH... a new feature. Well I'll try it and see if it works. I didn't really mind it before, but I don't have discs in my computer all the time. But I do hit the eject button ALL THE TIME so I could see how this would be a very good idea.

    Gee, thanks for letting me know. I'm really relieved now... THANKS!!

    Killed my SuperDrive

    After the update, my drive no longer recognizes when there is a disc in the drive. I have tried DVDs, CDs and CD-Rs.
    As noted before, the eject button is delayed as well.
    I have NEVER had a problem after an update with this or any other Mac I have owned. In fact, I thought that people who claimed they had were crazy.
    Until now.
    Any suggestions?
    I have repaired permissions ... can't run Hardware disc for obvious reasons.

    I have a 17" iMac G4 ... (lamp style)

    Thanks!!
