    I posted this before some reason it never posted....

    anyway I got home from work to see my eMac having a Apple Update notification of new updates. I hit the button to see what the update was. It was a update for Safari to update it to version 5.0.6, however I already HAVE 5.0.6 installed.

    Below are screenshots.

    Any idea why?

    This occurs if you are running with the Leopard WebKit frameworks installed. Simply hide the update in that case.

    Sweet! Thanks, Altemose! Update Ignored! I also shut off auto update completely.

    I would not disable automatic Software Update. Simply hide the update and let it roll. If you install a program that requires some newer optional software it would not check automatically in Software Update again.

    I would. There's no reason to have it on as there will never be any updates.

    That statement is not always true. You could install an Apple software like iWork or iLife which would have periodically gotten updates. Since there is no more updates to PPC versions your statement holds some water, but Software Update would inform the user if the versions were out of date if they didn't manually ensure everything was up to date.

    Being that PPC is obsolete, and any apple software for them is outdated, Would it really matter if you had the latest updates to already obsolete software?

    This statement does hold some truth, just remember to let it check for updates once after installing iWork or iLife.

    ----------

    I just disabled automatic update checks on my iBook G4 since iWork and iLife are both up to date.

    Yeah, once your PPC is fully updated, you can turn off Software Update. Since Apple said "go to iHell" to us, we know there won't be anything else coming out for PPC.

    Now if you do wind up installing something from Apple, then you need to run it all over again for the updates and then turn it off again. There's just no sense in wasting our computer's time/resources/etc to check for updates that will never happen.

    Yes. It would matter. You can disable automatic updates, but keep it in good conscience to check for updates manually every time you install a new Apple software package.
