Yes, that's what the combo update is for.
You could download the update from Apple.com couldn't you?
Yes, like the original reply said, you just need the combo update.
It's all sorted now, I remember in the past when I updated someones laptop for them I had to do it in a couple of increments. I was surprised to see that this was OK. Must be a recent policy change.
While I'm here, when I installed I chose to set no internet connections, and I plugged the newly installed emac via ethernet into the router and I was ready to copy all my settings over but to my surprise after having a crap time installing, I opened safari and it conneced to an apple page that I thought must be on the computer but the emac had configured itself by just plugging it in. Great.
What I'm wondering now is can I connect two emacs directly via ethernet or do I need to go through a router?. I went to connect to the local network and it saw the other host but when I tried to connect it came up with a dialog box saying "Alias not found" and when I went to fix it just searches for files. I checked the sharing pane for a 10.0.0.0 number but to try and connect that way but there wasn't any number there.
Or is there such a thing as a direct comp to comp firewire network?
Just use an ethernet or firewire cable, they should set themselves up with 169.254.x.x addresses.
OK I found that, thanks, then I found I forgot to switch on file sharing on the other comp.
Is a firewire connection faster for large volume of data I need to shift about 30 gig, would ethernet be as fast?
depends on the ethernet, but I'm guessing given that they're emacs, firewire would be better.
Excellent. I knew I'd get sorted when I saw you in the thread.
EDIT: btw you haven't seen my firewire cable about by any chance?
awww thanks, but my original reply was a rehash of what everyone else said
LMAO no. But I have a box somewhere around here with a dozen of them, if you want to dig around.
Must be the way you tell it.
EDIT: for future historians who come across this thread... firewire on the late model emacs was about another 50% faster than ethernet.
