i have to ask becuase the seemingly blatant bugs on this release makes it seem like it is not ready for prime time despite being released late.

anyone?

Did a CLEAN INSTALL...*cough* *cough* and have NO problems .;)


Ditto.

The only oddity I've had so far is the trash on my PowerBook wouldn't open when I clicked the icon. A reboot fixed that. But other than that, no problems whatsoever.

these are all good to hear. some of the install issues makes me wonder how the heck betas never found them.... and ftr i always do clean installs. I learned my lesson in the os8 days, trust me.

keep em coming! i will be running up to the Apple store this afternoon to grab my copy, seems the issues are far greater and far more severe than tiger.

p.s. y'all having airport issues?

Only real problem (other than not being able to read the install disk) to speak of is that lopard froze on me once yesterday, not sure what caused it.

Everything seems to be running fine.

I did a clean install and have no problems. Although, I think Apple should have polished a few things some more. They rushed a bit in my opinion to release the leopard.

I just popped the disk in, did a default install. Very seamless. Only problem was that I had to reinstall my LaserJet Printer. Otherwise, working great. It's running very fast, very smooth. The machine (MacPro) seems to be running a little hotter, but I did find that under Leopard, I now have SMC fan control of my power supply fan, whereas I didn't under 10.4.9

The only issue I had was Safari constanly freezing up on me.

I did a reboot and its been good since them.

No Issues for me on my 2.2 SR MBP :) Did a clean install. Chose not to install extra languages, extra printers drivers, and X11 so the install took up a little over 6 GB and only took 20 minutes. :)

Of all the people who done a clean install, do any of you have network hard drives connected and working fine? Cause there seems to be an issue with them over wireless networks. Thats the only problem I've had, and I just upgraded Tiger.

I'm running the same Tiger for about 18 months and have never had any problems so I didnt want to do a clean install even though everything is already backed up.

Also, Leopard needed 6gb to install on top of the space taken up by Tiger. Is this right? It seems an awful lot of space. Would it free up a few gigs if I done a clean install?

No problems at all and this was my first OSX install. I did Archive and Install. However, later today I am installing on a friends machine that is running 10.2 so who knows.

Upgrade worked like charm and without any glitches. My private MBP (see sig.) has got a real power boost. Boot time under thirty seconds! I am testing hard since five hours and couldn't find any bug.

Really impressive for a six-months-switcher like me!

I did an Archive and Install and it kept all my hacks (such as Clear Dock) from Tiger and it isn't as smooth as I'd expect.

Going to do a clean install - think it'll help?

I've had no problems. Upgraded a core 2 duo macbook pro, Mac Pro, and a G5 power mac. It was an "upgrade" not clean install, the only thing I did was uninstall groupcal which I do even when upgrading point releases (10.4.9, .10 etc).

I did a clean install and everything is working fine on my Core Duo MBP. In fact it feels much faster than Tiger did.
