    Hi Guy's..

    I've got a iMac G5 & have installed Mac OSX 10.5.4.

    Now the question is: a mate of mine (who is a bit more of an apple geek than me) asked me how i've put it on as apparently a G5 shouldnt run OSX 10.5

    As I've just said to him "I put the disc in & watched it".. lol

    Is my mate right ??? If so, how have I done it??

    I have attached a couple of photo's with system info on..

    Many thanks in advance

    A G5 Mac can run Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard quite fine, though 512 MB RAM might be a bit low for that. Maybe get two 1 GB RAM sticks for your Mac via MacSales/OWC or eBay or Newegg to upgrade your RAM.

    As for the photos: Taking Screenshots in Mac OS X

    Many thanks..

    Really appreciate it (and of course, it's going to be good to tell my mate (a bit of a big head) that I was right)... lol:D

    And also go to the Menu Bar > :apple: > Software Update to update all the relevant parts of your OS.

    Take an ethernet cable and plug into your router directly. Can you still get online?

    If you can, step one is to download every update and patch you can. Re-start, and keep checking SU until nothing else shows. Then, try connecting to wifi again. Let us know if that works.
