Well, I already updated to 10.2.8... and I have had NO problems.
When I saw thay had "pulled" the update, I said... " whoops... what in the hell have I just done now? "
They say that theres a problem with the Ethernet kext, and it buggers up your ethernet connectivity in some way, but I have broadband, and nothing is wrong with my machine at all... Nothing at all...
So my analysis of this fiasco is this :-
People (as usual) must not be looking after their Macintosh properly (eg: repairing permissions, running Nortons and the likes, optimising their drives with Speed Disk, using Disk Warrior every week) and when they update their OS or Apps, something is not in sync, or has its permissions damaged, or its date and time of Creation, or Modification altered in some way, so that component dosent get updated by the updater because it thinks it is a newer version, or it dosent have the right permissions for the component, so it dosent update that component, and...
BANG CRASH ....Problems.... mixed and matched pieces of OS..
KERNEL PANIC CRASH BOOM!
"oooh whats happened to my mac?",
"ooh noooo! its all Apple's fault!, the villans!"
... when after all it is really just the users fault for not running a tighter Mac, like looking after it. if you dont look after it.... things go wrong, especialy after you update OS or other Software's. If you learn more about OS X, and Unix etc, and dont be so ignorant, you will be more happier and better off, and hopefully error free... getting you work done, not troubleshooting updates.
i cannot stress this enough.
