Now available via Software Update:
Is it a good idea to install this update at the same time as my new 2GB RAM installation? I hate to ruin my uptime, by rebooting twice.
Direct link to the article.
I don't see why you couldn't. Do the install, choose shut down, then put your ram in and boot up again. I doubt it'll cause any problems.
For your own peace of mind, do one at a time. If anything goes wrong, you will have fewer possibilities to eliminate that way.
I wouldn't do both at the same time. Although unlikely, in the event that something goes wrong on the system, it would be better to know if the cause is the RAM or the update. Besides, if you put both in and there's any issue, you'll wind up taking out the RAM as part of troubleshooting and having to reboot anyhow.
I'd put the RAM in first, reboot, repair permissions and make sure everything is OK. Then do the security update. I'd much rather lose "uptime" than try and fiddle with a system where a problem could be hardware or software related.
Mmmm... Security update.
not available for me.
it says i don't meet the requirements.
Security updates: Good!
Keep them coming, and make the pursuit to make some efficient malware for OS X even harder...
i would probably do the ram first and reboot, this way if you have any problems with the ram you'll be sure its the ram and not the security update.
wow same thought same time. you were just faster!
I agree. Never change multiple important things at the same time.
Additional you won't loose more than 5 minutes uptime anyway, so WFC.
I agree with arkhanjel and FoxyKaye,
PS: Who cares about uptime? What the heck difference does it make?
5.5Mb download... done in about 1 minute... updated and running smooth
8.5mb... up + running.
No problems here.
What lose 30 minutes uptime, I'd be yelling out a window.
It made my system crash after reboot. No problem though. I found out it was because of an old installation of Netware I didn't completely remove. Good Ole' Logs.
You win the prize for first to suggest repairing permissions.
LOL - you say that, but I'm always surprised by how many people simply don't. Apple certainly doesn't tell the everyday user that repairing permissions is a regular part of system maintenance.
It has always been my experience that the most efficient piece of malware on OS X is the end user.
Kaye, keep repairing those permissions. After running Security Updates or any newly installed app, I always repair and run MacJanitor "por si las moscas".
He-he... I know what you mean... I've yet to see any virus or other malware do as much damage to any system as an ignorant user with admin rights, no matter what system you're talking about, Windows, Mac OS, Linux or whatever...
I wonder what the update to OpenSSH was. I would update just for that fix.
Still has not fixed this:
TIFF images seem to be a boon for Apple right now, just going over the bugs they fixed, and then this one that has not been fixed yet.
Installed and running fine!
Actually I think his point was that running the repair permissions tool is more vodo then any real help (in most current situations)... and that is why Apple doesn't recommend it as part of system maintenance.
review among others (because I don't care to list the reasons)
