    I got the 10.5.2 update when I click on apple/software update and I got an update of 100MB or so.... than I got the graphic update and it was more than 30MB... I went to the apple website and they have the update there but is 343MB.... What this has?... more updates?...

    Can I run this update on top of the one I already did?

    Different computers receive different updates - that update has to include the info for every model computer.
    ...At least I assume that accounts for the difference.

    Hello,
    I think the difference in the update sizes is related to
    updating X11. If you do not have X11 installed the update
    will not be the larger size.

    Not sure if is the right answer but prior to 10.5.2 i did a complete erase & install when i opened the software updater my update showed up as 343mb so maybe this is a large bundled update including previous updates
