    Hi all,

    I hope some of you can help me with this: after the last software update from apple (a few days ago), my G4 Powerbook has slowed to a halt... it was running like a dream until the iTunes/Safari/OSX update, now its taking 10-15 seconds to load Google. My beige G3 233 is running nearly twice as fast! The trouble started IMMEDIATELY after the update! What's the deal and how might I fix this? Can I uninstall the last update? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Sincerely,

    Macuzer

    Just to clarify, is it just the loading of web pages that's slow, or is it your entire machine?

    Update boot cache again... :confused:

    Might not have optimized properly after the update.

    So update_dyld_shared_cache might work.

    Either that or looking at the system logs to see if something is out of control in the background.

    It seems to be web page loading that is slow.

    It sounds like you know your stuff; can you explain briefly how I would update the cache? I cleared some caches with Cocktail, is that what you mean? Sorry for my noobness, and thanks for the response.

    Thats cool... but this isn't an eventual slowing, this slowing happened in an instant.

    If you aren't seeing pages of dyld throttling respawn in the system log, then there isn't anything to worry about updating.

    It is just something that can keep trying to run after an update, and shouldn't survive a reboot.
