so i just updated to 10.4.8 and now everything is screwy. every time i try to open ichat, it opens for a few seconds, logs me in, and then unexpectedly quits. i tried running macjanitor, but whenever i click the button to allow allow tasks, it closes unexpectedly too! to summarize:

- i'm on a rev. B g5 imac
- i just updated to 10.4.8
- apps keep unexpectedly quitting
- i tried macjanitor, it won't let me run it
- i tried restarting, it didn't work

HELP!

No problems with Mail or Address book on my rev B iMac G5, (no haxies, except possibly Screen Spanning Doctor 0.33, though i think that's now included in OS X...), I don't use iChat so don't know if that has problems.

Resetting PRAM will not cause you to loose settings. I'd certainly give that a shot.

just loaded 10.4.8 on G4 1.25 with 512 MB RAM and noticed P-shop CSII hangs. Can't open any files. The work computer is hooked to a college network, but that shouldn't be a problem, right?

Did disk permissions, deleted prefs, plist, downloaded latest adobe patch v. 9.0.2

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Matt

Photoshop CS2 works fine (as normal) for me under 10.4.8 on a G4 1.5 w/1.25GB RAM. FYI

well, i downloaded and installed the 10.4.8 combo upgrade (ppc), and everything seems to be working okay again. the internet is a little slow, but that might just be my college network.

maybe . . . Hope you get your problem figured out.

Here is what happened with mine, and I take it that it is still weird: the super drive can't have a CD in it or else p-shop won't open an image. Infact, p-shop was hung, I ejected the disk (which wasn't being used for anything) and the image opened.

?!

I just installed 10.4.8 on a mac book and it won't boot any more. It seems to be hanging whilst trying to load the network drivers.

Fortunately I have a firewire drive with a system backup on it (which I am using right now), but I need to try to get my primary drive fixed so that I can boot off of that again.

I've never had a problem like this from an Apple OS update. :(

I finally managed to get it fixed by downloading the full update and manually applying it to the drive where the previous install failed.

I don't know what went wrong there, but a least I have it up again.

There's a good lesson there - Always keep a bootable backup on firewire/USB at hand, especially when doing a system update. ;)

Lots of buggy software coming out of Cupertino lately. Personally, I have not had any issues with 4.8 yet, but now that I said that, I'm bound to have lots of problems.
