Just seeing if anyone else feels my pain here... I feel like I should have waited to purchase Tiger. I have had nothing but troubles with it on TWO computers (see sig.). I'm a college student, and with little better to do over my summer break, I've spent way to much time trying to get Tiger to function properly on both computers. I've reinstalled the OS, and all subsequent software at least (no exaggeration, here) 10 times total in the last three months, mostly on my 1.2 gHz iBook. What gives? Why am I having such troubles with Tiger? My Finder crashes all the time. Spotlight responds, but usually very slowly. I can repair permissions until the end of time, and am still left with Widget preferences that need changing, but never do change. I frequently get a trouble with my Finder loading the "Open with" menu with duplicates (or even triplicates) of an application (often times, with only my one hard drive running, and only one copy installed. And when applying the fix I was given in the terminal (see thread entitled "My finder went bonkers"), it fixes it until my next reboot. My 5 button mouse used to be configured to have the right-most button go to my desktop in Exposé, but now it doesn't do anything, and reassigning other buttons doesn't work either. Knowing that I'd probably be in a situation where I'd have to reinstall everything again (and probably relatively soon), I made a disc image of the fresh install (just the OS with updates applied), and a fully loaded image (all the apps I need, with all updates) for both computers from Disc Image, and followed the instructions provided by Disc Image to the T. Upon trying to restore, I was left with a non-bootable HD on my iBook, so I had to scrub it again from the Tiger DVD, and start over. Restore took about 5 hours!!! Useless! Those four disc images I made were all useless! How can I made a usefull disc image for quicker restoration purposes? I want to reimage the HD about every two weeks, and need something I can rely on. I've given up. So long Tiger. You've taken up too much of my time this summer. You're too needy. I'm leaving you until you can grow up a little bit. I'm going back to 10.3.9, and getting my computers back. Anyone else out there really honked off by Tiger? When is Apple going to do something about this shoddy release? Or am I just doing something totally wrong.
