Another update I can't install........

Because I own an iMac G5!!!!!!! :mad:

Yeah, I'm also pissed that my old IBM XT from 1984 cannot run 64-Bit Windows 7.

I could understand those complaints back in 2006 when people had to wake up rather hard to the fact that their freshly purchased PowerPC Macs were using abandoned technology because Steve Jobs in his infinite wisdom decided to once again switch hardware platforms.

But then again, I think no other company has a longer history of abandoned CPU architectures than Apple. And now is the year 2010 and we Mac users have been living in Intel-Land for four full years already. It's time to stop the whining and move on.

By the way, there are several PowerPC-based Linux distributions that will run awesomely on your iMac G5. Just try Ubuntu 10.04. You will be surprised how cool that abandoned hardware of yours still is.

Force-Installed this on my Aug 2007 24" iMac via Pacifist...

Build number is 10F2056

Way higher than 10F569 or whatever 10.6.4 standard release is...

uhhhhhh you have downloaded the the magic trackpad update right?

Oh yus.

The problem appeared to be that I was running OS X 10.5.8 and I needed 10.6.4 which my ancient ,9 month old, imac wouldn't update too.

However 25 squids later and all is up and running.

Now if you would be so kind as to excuse me I am going back to edit my first post before I offend anybody.:D
