I want to install - but if it sucks, is there an easy way to go back to 10.5.1?
Back up first. I recommend downloading the Combo update manually instead of using Software Update.
just install it.
I assume the combo update is the .2 + graphics?
Where do I get it?
I did a Time Machine backup before I installed the update.
The combo updater does not included the Graphics update. You can download both. I installed the combo update, then ran Software Update to get the Graphic update.
For gods sake, just install it............
new stupid question - if the graphics update is not part of the combo update, then what's in the combo update? We're talking 340mb vs 180 for the regular one... just curious
A combo update contains all the fixes and patches since 10.5 was released. So you can go from 10.5.0 straight to 10.5.2 with a combo update. It's also handy in that ou can install on multiple Macs without having to download the whole package everytime.
The download you get from software update looks at what level your system is currently at now, and gives you the appropriate update.
Not sure why Apple didn't bundle in the graphics update with 10.5.2, since it requires 10.5.2....maybe a late addition?
kevin why on earth do you have 11 gigs of ram?
btw thanks for the clarification
I do a lot of web development/design as well as video editing. 11GB allows me to have everything open at once.
Plus I live by the motto "you can never have enough RAM!"
I live by the motto, "RAM or food?"
heh - but I'm a lowly medical student. I don't believe in expiration dates.
there is no easy way. i installed 10.5.2 last night and it killed my router. this morning i restored from a time machine backup and everything works again, back in 10.5.1.
not everyone is having this problem so i'm not saying don't update, it might just be my particular router/macbook combination. but make a time machine backup first.
Use Carbon Copy Cloner to image your drive to another drive or to a disk image. If you want to restore, boot from another drive, run CCC again and image it back. Good as new.
