    I've tried to install the beta Safari on my iBook. It says, it needs to 14MBs I think to install it and I still have 57GBs on my hard drive. However, it has the red exclamation point on my hard drive icon and says it cannot be completed. Does anyone know why this is happening? Is G4 too old for it install? Please help.

    sorry to break this to you but your computer is too old to run safari:( . I would recommend mozzila firefox, or at least a basic version of it.:apple:

    It isn't too old to run the Safari beta. My iBook (see sig) has lower specifications than the poster's and runs the Safari 3.0 beta just fine. I'm not sure what the problem is though :confused:.

    Which version of OS X are you running? You need at least 10.4.9 to use Safari 3.

    I'm running Version 10.4.10. I've tried to download it from both Safari and Firefox but same issue still comes up.

    Something strange about this... On my fully updated 10.4.10 iBook G4 / 800, it says I need 48.3 MB to install... but my disc is not blocked out. Are you running the right package -- there're two inside the disk image -- the installer and the uninstaller. You want the one on the left. :eek:

    Otherwise, there aren't separate PPC and Intel disk images, are there?

    Yeah. I clicked on the icon on the left. Is it a whole lot different from the regular Safari?

    Safari 2.04

    Safari 2.04 has to be in the "Applications" main directory to update to 3.02
