    Just installed on my dual 2ghz G5. Works great, although I don't notice any differences.

    The document link does not work for me... anyone???
  14. macrumors regular

    my download is horribly SLOOOOOWWWW. Apple must be getting hit hard for this or something. All of my other large downloads are moving along at around 300kb a sec

  18. macrumors member

    Restart took quite a bit longer than usual..and things seem to run a little bit on the draggy side..anyone exp. the same thing?
  19. macrumors newbie

    Yea, i'm getting abuot 460k down instead of the 230k I got about a week ago... ;)
  20. macrumors member

    Yeah, my startup time was a little slower, I'm repairing permissions now, hope that'll speed things up a bit.

    Powerbook G5

    Is it just me or is OS 10.3.2 really, really slow now? It takes me an extra 8 seconds to boot up and snappiness is even worse than Jaguar was by quite a bit. I repaired permissions and checked my disk just in case and everything should be fine... :(
  22. macrumors member


    I swear it's taking 2x the time than before to boot up.
    It seems to take a bit more time than usual at the gray screen and apple screen.

    THEN, Loading the menus and desktop took A LONG TIME...!!! You really notice it!!!

    I rebooted it twice just to make sure..

    Apple still haven't got Dual Head working correctly.

    My monitor is capable of 1152xXXX, yet it doesn't show up in Display Preferences. I get 1024.768 and 1280x768. Unfortunately, at 1280x768, the refresh rate is too low - only 60Hz.

    1024.x768 is too small resolution, and 1152 is just right - has good refresh rates available.

    I know Panther is capable of 1152xXXXX resolutions, because it gives the option on another 17" monitor I've used.

    I shall see whether Apple have fixed Networking - can find that out tomorrow at work - can't see any PC machines on the network. Jaquar I could see all machines.

    Slowness of 10.3

    Well, I'm going to wait before installing 10.3.2 for a bit. I can say that with an "Archive and Install", my 10.3.0 and 10.3.1 are CONSIDERABLY slower than 10.2.x ever was. Permissions are not a problem. I've got a Dual 800 with 1.25 Gigs of RAM.

    Specifically, there are several things slower, and a few faster.

    Good news with 10.3.1: Start up is definitely faster (haven't timed it though).

    Bad news: Simple functions in the finder are much slower. Although menus are about the same, Command-Deleting files to the trash are MUCH slower. Also, scrolling through image previews or movie previews are INCREDIBLY slow in column view, whereas in 10.2.x or even 10.1.x, they were <0.5 seconds. Now, although variable, I have to wait ~1 second to as long as 10 seconds (even for small <100 kb .jpg files) before the preview shows up.

    I've also had intermittent wake from sleep problems that I hope are fixed with 10.3.2 (I've got a GeForce 3).
