    After the (IMO) cock-up that was 10.2.4 (I had loads of trouble, had to reformat and only updated to 10.2.3), I would like for any of you that have updated to 10.2.5 to post your experiance with it.
    After the last update that I was in such a hurry to get, turned out to be a pile of steaming sh*te, I'm being alot more cautious before I hit the update now button...., what da ya'll think of it?

    I just downloaded 10.2.5, and see no problems. It installed flawlessly, then I restarted. Everything came right back up. I think you should go for it. Although, I had no trouble with 10.2.4 either. Hopefully, you will not have trouble this time. Good luck!

    For the first time since I've owned it, my estimated time immediately after unplugging the power adapter on the PowerBook 17" is over three hours (3:19 to be exact)

    If that's the case, it's a great improvement.

    Installed flawlessly. When I put my mac to sleep, there would be a response lag of many seconds before the machine would fall asleep.
    Permission fixes never had an effect. 10.2.5 is
    instant sleep. PM Dual 1.25, 20"cinema display

    Re: crappy

    So I should leave my PowerBook running 10.2.3 then. I want the newest updates but not at the risk of battery problems.

    P.S. I have 10.2.5 on my Powermac; all seems fine. But then again, there are no battery problems to worry about with a Powermac.

    No problems here....

    No problems with 10.2.5 on my iBook 500 DVD. I didn't have any issues with 10.2.4 either. I'm utterly convinced that with each update my battery life improves.

    10.2.3 - 4 hour battery life.
    10.2.4 - 4.5 hour battery life.
    10.3.5 - 4.75 hour battery life.

    Excellent job Apple!

    Check out the menubar widgets in iMovie and iPhoto. They're closer together in a very ugly way. Doesn't seem to affect any other textured window apps, though.

    It appears to have slowed the crap out of my 12"PB, i'm not amused.

    Installed flawlessly on my PowerBook...been using it for a couple of hours. It's probably my imagination, but stuff seems to load and close faster.

    Re: This Thread is Redundant

    I disagree, I posted this thread so that there was one place to post your comments on 10.2.5, so that others (i.e. me) can decide if they should update, the thread you are referring to is the announcement for 10.2.5, this thread is not.

    I'm still going to hold off the update, 1 day of 10.2.5 behaving is not good enough for me yet, I'll probably come back in a week or so to this thread and see if anyone has been having problems.

    10.2.5 screwed my ipod

    well the update has screwed my itunes and isyncs ability to see my ipod :mad:

    the ipod mounts as normal and i can access it through the file system. but i no longer can edit my playlists and tracks.

    (snow ibook(2001), 20gig ipod)

    i'm hoping that the rumoured updates to itunes at the end of this month fix this for me.

    anyone else experiencing this?

    Just plugged my ipod in... itunes can see it ok (I'm playing a track off it now).

    the whole thing seems a bit snappier (though I could just be imagining it!!)

    We'll see in a few days though I guess.

    Apple rocks they finnaly fixed USB modems. I can now upload and download stuff and a normal speed with my ADSL. Before I needed to stop downloading, while I was uploading stuff, now I can do both at once.

    Also 3D games are so much better due to the new OpenGL code, I can now play games like Tony Hawk 3 and Nascar 2002 properlly. Not insanely great but good enough for me. The play back is alot smoother though.

    No new iChat like it stated, I don't use it but yeah. And there was nothing else major I have realised yet.

    Oh and also it screwed widgets in iPhoto and iMovie and probably iDVD and all the cocoa apps with a brush metal UI.

    go repair your disk permissions, that should help.

    This happens after every OSX update , you usually need to reboot it 2x, since the new OS X updater clears the OS X cache therefore making it seem slower . After a secound reboot everything is cached once again and it loads much faster and feel responsive.

    also as ijon stated, repairing your permissions couldn't hurt either

    I have installed 10.2.5 on all four of my macs today

    imac 400- working fine, seems to be running faster and more smooth

    imac g3 700 snow- Working fine seems way faster in bootime and running all programs. Sleep happens faster.

    g4 733 quicksilver- works great mail seems faster start up time the same. Xbench came up .52 is all. But this machine has no cache

    12" al powerbook- Working fine no real changes in speed. but mail seems faster but xbench went down........ Battery life on longest life settings now 3.00 was 2.5 before

    The upgrade seems to have helped my kids old imacs more than my g4s. I wonder why, but my son will love the extra speed when he gets home from school.

    10.2.5 improvements

    Apple is always on the ball. is finally more responsive for me, it used to be so slow and laggy, I never understood why. Graphics on the dock and the 'fluidness' of it all is somewhat smoother now ;) heh. Finally, the hard drive doesn't seem like its 'thinking' as much as it did in 10.2.4 but it's still doin some work. Great update! maybe according to news we'll have Mac OS X 10.3 soon....featuring new Artists from Universal Music Group. = )
