can anyone tell me how to fix.
That's twice now you've commented on Leopard/Tiger and speed, so I have to call you out on it!If you want speed, go with 10.4 Tiger. If you want more compatibility and more modern software, go with 10.5 Leopard.
I'm running 10.5.8 on a G4/450 AGP at work with 256mb ram at the moment.It's strange to see different people's opinions of Leopard on a G4. A lot of people I've seen say Leopard has awful performance and Tiger is much faster and better, and some say Tiger is too faulty, slow, and obsolete.
Well, it had about 1GB when I initially installed Leopard. And up until a month or so ago it had 1.75GB. I just needed to swap the ram around somewhere else because it's not being used as a main graphic design machine now.
Yeah, the G4/350 PCI is running Tiger with 192MB ram. All it does is process photos automagically and move files around whenever applescripts get triggered.Tiger runs just fine with only 128MB. It'll even boot to the desktop with as little as 64MB, but it won't really be usable.
Heck, even Windows 7 will boot with 96MB of ram. Completely unusable, but it boots.
