I'm wondering how many discs puma has? Please help.
To install? 1, just like every release before or since...
The real question here is why do you want to know? Do you think you are missing something?
I think it came on one CD.
Yup. I think I'm missing one... cause Tiger has four cds... so wouldn't Puma (I know Puma is older)
I don't think Tiger came with 4 discs... I would know, I have Tiger. It may have come with 2 discs if they were CDs (one for the system, one for the dev tools), I think there were CD and DVD versions...
Tiger comes in 2 Power PC versions. A 4 CD Version and 1 DVD version however Jaguar 10.2 and under is single cd
Well there you go. I stand corrected.
@RDP: why do you think you're missing a disc?
One disk, I just checked. Also, why don't you install Jaguar or Panther or even Tiger? Any machine capable of running Puma can run Jaguar, and probably Panther for that matter. If you're getting an error when trying to install 10.1, it may be a damaged disk; you could probably pick one up on ebay cheaply.
Yikes, 10.1 is bad. Please if you can use 10.4
A Mac which can run 10.1, or came with 10.1 or earlier, will have doubtful performance under 10.4. It must be a G3 model judging from this so unless it's a PowerMac or the later Pismo model PowerBooks, its performance will be 'lacking.'
A processor with 500MHz+ and maxed out RAM is highly recommended for Tiger. Otherwise stick with Panther.
Also: 10.1 was a hell of a lot better than 10.0
How true! I remember those days - trying to find a 10.1 update disc was a huge ordeal when it came out... ah, memories.
I would try Jaguar or even Panther too depending on your computer's specs - remember that in the early days of OSX they were HEAVILY optimizing the system during each new release, so generally the system would get faster on the same hardware. Panther or Tiger was the first to break this trend (can't remember sorry).
Retail (black) disc: 1 with Leopard (the only retail OSX disc I've purchased, as a gift)
Grey discs that came with my Mac Mini (10.5.1): 2
