    Many users have reported that Mac OS X v10.1.4 is now available from Apple. The standard System Preferences / Software Updater drill to get it. Progress!

    I'll confirm this. I just started the download and install of the 10.1.4 update (all 2.2MB of it :) ). Looks like improved hardware support as well as PPP stability among other updates.

    Not bad for it's small size :D.

    So far so good...

    iDisk access is MUCH faster, but still lags behind Goliath...

    Haven't noticed any other improvements...

    Doesn't seem like a very major update.... could mean that they're holding back a lot of features for an imminent release of 10.2?

    Still, an update is an update, and every little helps :)

    Re: OS X v10.1.4 Update Available

    ah, updates are nice. The system seems to be starting up remarkably faster, but that could be the 128 meg extra RAM i just plunked in. Looking forward to the PPP reliability...

    true it's a small update, but it's still something :)

    pnw

    Oh, incidently, when I started up it told me Vanity Dockling might not work anymore... no such problems yet, but it might have to go...

    This could be the last update before 10.2, or paving the way for 10.2 at either WWDC or MWNY.

    Another time where good things come in small packages :D

    This update is a small one (2.2mb).

    The new kernel version is 5.4 and sports an April 10th build date.

    No problems on my TiBook 667.

    This is what it says:


    fairly boring.. but an update nonetheless:

    Update 10.1.4 delivers improved networking, security, and additional disc recording device support. Specific enhancements include:

    Disc Recording Devices:
    – Updated and new support for Fast 10 SCSI drives, including the Pioneer 201 drive.
    – Expanded support for SmartDisk, EZQuest, and LaCie disc recording devices.

    Networking Improvements:
    – Dial-up connections over PPP are more reliable and system responsiveness has been improved.
    – Significant improvement to file searching on local and remote volumes.
    – Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) services can be browsed on networks with 3Com routers.

    Security Update:
    – BSD-based TCP/IP connections now check and block broadcast or multicast IP destination addresses.

    Serial Kernal Extension

    Does this in anyway replace the AppleSCCSerial.kext inside the /System/Extensions folder? If it does, this could be the PPP solution, but I don't want to disturb the kernal extension replacement (which works like a dream) that I set there to stop my dial - up hang. Can anyone verify what I'm talking about? aka is the version number on AppleSCCSerial.kext different from 1.2.1? Thanks in advance.

    10.14 update - No Mouse for Classic Apps

    My mouse (cursor) disappears when I click on a classic app.
    Have tried this with Phototshop and Lotus Notes.

    All working fine under 10.1.3

    Now mouse is gone.
    Anyone have similar problem?

    Dude ditch classic already! I agree, it seems slightly faster at bootup.

    I have seen this too. But, stop using classic. I just got Photo Shop 7.0 and it rocks. It has to be the best update in any software. The only update I really need now is Dreamweaver MX and Director MX.

    Re: 10.14 update - No Mouse for Classic Apps

    Nope, everything works fine under classic for me.

    I think this update was probably unplanned. I'd say they were hoping to have 10.2 ready for the 12 month anniversary but since it will be so long, they've given us a tiny update to keep us happy until 10.2.

    I remember the good ol' days back when there was an update every other week. (Way back 12 months ago!)

    I knew it. The update was going to fix dial-up problems.

    I will try out 10.1.4 when Apple posts the Combo Update on their website. That way, I don't need to update another G4 system to 10.1.1, then 10.1.2, then 10.1.3, then 10.1.4 :)

    Although it will fix my dial-up problems, it won't make the hefty download (probably 40MB) go much faster.

    Re: Serial Kernal Extension

    I said thanks in advance because I figured someone with 10.1.4 would check. Please, would someone check for me?

    madamimadamtimallen, I have the .bin file version of the Combo Update to 10.1.3, and it is 38.4MB. Considering that things are nice and compressed with .sit and .bin files the extra 2.2MB with 10.1.4 alone may only be, maybe, 1.8 or 1.9MB. So that total will come out to be a little more than 40 for the .bin file.

    I don't usually save the .dmg files. They are too large. I save the .bin.

    Re: Re: Serial Kernal Extension

    I did not know what you were talking about but, after opening the System Extensions there is the file "AppleSCCSerial.kext".

    It's version number is now 1.2.2

    My appologies, I use the software update.... then again, why are squirming over 2Mb here and 3Mb there out of 40Mb, let's be a little more grown up... I have retracted my earlier comments.

    Pismo Okay....

    It's fine on my Pismo PowerBook. Has anyone else had this problem...When I launch a classic app, typically Photoshop, the menus are gone. Nothing there. I have to quit and relaunch and then everythings okay. I can't figure out if, when or why, or if I'm doin' something at the time it happens. It still happens with 10.1.4

    Yeah, I know, I should get Photoshop 7.....I've gotta convince my wife first.
