    I went to download Xcode 7.2 using App Store and it says:

    "we could not complete your purchase
    A server with the specified hostname could not be found"

    Any ideas? Last time I used a link that had all kinds of downloads and didn't go thru the App Store, it was thru some Apple dev site (IIRC).

    Well it went from that message to a wait icon. I let it go for a few hours and nothing.

    Went to the https://developer.apple.com/downloads/ and found the .dmg and it looks like it's working.

    Something's wrong with the main download page, but this one is working.

    BTW, it requires 10.10.5... Just in case anyone has an older version.

    At least I didn't replace the old xcode, I'll have to do a backup before I do an upgrade.

    I learned the hard way to back up older versions of Xcode before updating one to many times.

    I had 2 backup devices and 2 hard drives fail within about 6 months. I dug up an old 200G Maxtor for the job. She still works and is one of the oldest drives I still have around.

    Well I got everything up and running and found the 1st problem. No sound. I guess I'm going to have to go dig up those install files and figure out what to change.

    It's more of a hackintosh question, but can I pull the extras from the backup and use move those into the same directory on the boot drive or does it require a full rebuild of the OS?
