Apple releases Mac OS X 10.6.2 with guest account bug fix - Page 4

It won't necessarily crash. But wrap-arounds, if any, will be off. Type will run off the page on to another, or will draw up short, and type from the next page will end up on the one before. Or hyphens will get screwed. Then you'll get rivers where you painstakingly, and manually eliminated them earlier.

Or the weight won't be right, or the character won't look as nice.

On multiple columns, where you aligned the type so the weight of each side was balanced, is now giving one a much blacker look than another so that it looks as though the page is falling over to one side.

There are so many problems that can come from not using well declared fonts.

Haha...I never claimed to be a "professional" like you so obviously think you are (that isn't an invitation for you to bore us with your "credentials" btw). I do expect better of Apple, however. The continuing artifacts and tearing issues look sloppy as hell.

Booting into the 64 bit kernel on my Unibody Macbook now feels as though it is a lot cooler. In fact cooler than 32 bit mode was under 10.6.1. Anyone else seeing this? 64 bit mode now feels as though it is the better choice for daily activity.

I've used macs since 1985 when I typed up my first research paper. Never used anything else never wanted to.

Have you tried any peripherals with it yet, such as a printer?

I had this happen but when i was using FCP it would suddenly cut out the sound and then make horrible scratching type noise. Then no sound from any apps would work. The fix for me was:
1. Shut down MBP (in my case bought earlier this year)
2. Hold down the LEFT shift key, control key and option key and hold down the power button for 5 seconds. If you are plugged in, the light on your plug should go out.
3. Let go all buttons and press the power button to start up.
This resets the SMU (or some such acronym)
After doing this, my sound issues were fixed. Hope it helps.

Yes, tried a networked HP printer. It worked fine.

I have Serene Saver Pro and my "perference" panel won't open with Snow Leopard, so I can't change anything.

All screen savers must now be 64 bits. Sadly, almost none are. I also have Serene Screen's savers. They say they are working to upgrade them to 64 bit versions.

Thanks for the info. I'll guess I'll wait and not try to figure out how to resolve the problem. My program works except that I can't open the preference panel and change any scenes of settings. I really like the Serene Saver Pro. Worth the price to me.

Are you using an Apple screensaver? Some of them aren't yet 64 either.

Yeah, it's the Apple iTunes Artwork screensaver. That's strange.

I guess screensavers wasn't their highest priority.

Mechanical Engineer, Computer Scientist worked at NeXT and Apple, dick less.

Post your f'n logs or shut the hell up.

Apart from feeding the trolls. I updated to 10.6.2 today from 10.5.x. The system is good. Sucky programs still suck, but I wish everyone would make software like Safari. It is quite fast. My HP all-in-one works great and so does my WatchGuard VPN to work. It helped to wait.

The Apple screen savers work well, including iTunes Artwork. Why don't you download the combo update and try again?

10.6.2 still hasn't fixed my issue with my external USB hard drive.

Since I installed Snow Leopard my one external USB hard drive that I use for my Time Machine backups randomly disconnects itself. Under Leopard everything worked fine and the hard drive stayed connected.

I have tried everything to resolve in Snow Leopard from re-formatting the hard drive to deleting all partitions and rebuilding...nothing works. My other external hard drive works fine.

It's very weird.

Have you tried looking for an updated driver for your external HDD? or trying a different USB port on both devices (if the HDD case has it)?

Apple should be ashamed to issue a new operating system (Snow Leopard) which will not run previous verious of apps like iWork. That is almost enough to make this loyal Apple customer to move on along - that and the iPhone fiasco with ATT&T only. Sheesh!

Which version of iWork doesn't work?

iWork 08 works fine on SL. If you upgrading from Tiger, not Leopard, then you should have bought the upgrade that comes with iWork 09 and iLife 09. No version of iWork is listed on their incompatible apps list, but trying to run a 2005 or 2006 version of iWork will surely have some quirks.

Doesn't work!! I even have the old program Appleworks running and still using it on my Mac Pro 2009, OS 10.6.2.

Yup! Appleworks 6.x.x still works on my system as well.

Yep. Both my USB external hard drives are LaCie. There doesn't appear to any new drivers on their website. Additionally, I have tried all the USB ports and the hard drive still somehow disconnects itself. What's odd is that once it does this, the system partially thinks it's still there because if I try to restart or log out, the system hangs until I manually shut the HD off.
