Man, I haven't any of these problems. I'm connected via Ethernet, though to an ABS, am listening to iTunes right now, my monitor is working great, with the exception of a stuck pixel.

I feel sorry for you guys.

It also fixed a problem I was having with downloads.

Well this about the 3rd time I've had to restart my G4 tower Because it didn't recognize my kensington wireless mouse. It was recognized upon the third restart. This is getting old. I thought my problems were gone but they seem to crop up unexpectantly. I've noticed that seems to be a pattern among many different types of problems with this update.

Apple an update soon please!

Nope. Call Apple as I got this computer a week ago. Take it to Apple Authorized Repair Facility.

I am so shocked and dissapointed concerning this update. I downloaded it immediately after it came out and thought it was ok. Everything seemed to be working fine. All of a sudden while watching the new Matrix preview... Quicktime freezes. I restart the preview freezes again. Download the file to disk... freezes again. Restart... the computer freezes. THE COLONEL VISITS. Hasn't happened in forever. And I get the COLONEL. I want a fix soon... please.

One of the cool new things in 10.2.8 is the much improved bluetooth support, whats not so cool about it is that connecting to my t68i with the sallinger clicker makes the whole system stall... Even safari falls down to snail-speed for several seconds at a time.

I downloaded it the day it was released, but I did not have time to install it. When I got home from work at night, I saw people were having problems. So, I have it on my desktop, but have not installed it, and I guess now I will not.

Same here. Fixed a problem I had with Safari too.

Even though I still plan on doing a reformat and install with Panther. That's how I always do it.

Audio in anything skips if you are using Ethernet a lot. And I have a server going nonstop that is very busy. And music playing almost as much. Hope the update comes out tomorrow!

U know the volume get's automatically changed sometimes which is annoying if you are trying to make music.

For those having ethernet issues with this update, I found this on Macupdate:

"AppleGMACEthernet Patch fixes the issues with the 10-base T ethernet cards when upgrading from Mac OS X 10.2.6+ to 10.2.8. It simply downgrades the AppleGMACEthernet.kext file from 1.3 to 1.2.4."

http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/12907

Just thought this may be helpful. I haven't had problems myself, but I'd be interested to know if it helped for others that do.

Yup.

God dammit.

Yeah. This is sucking. Hard to tell, but I do think there is a performance penalty. I am suddenly being a lot less cocky about my Powerbook on the plane. . .

Anyone figured this out for sure? Have we lost battery life? Any workarounds? And any word on a fix for this god-awful update? Boy, they shure learned me.

They have had over a week now to fix the update. Considering this has left many people with rather annoying problems it seems like that should of had a fix out by now. Did it take them this long last time?

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.

Nick.

nihat you're new here. Welcome to wild and wooly AI. I'll cut you some slack.

Believe me we know what we're doing. I repaired permissions before and after, I uninstalled APE, I left the Snow theme on but it stayed fine, and Transparent Dock stopped working so I upgraded and fixed it. My Ethernet always works too. However it makes the audio in any application skip and also I think might be slowing my machine down more then usual. Even MIDI audio skips when there is Ethernet network activity. Also one time I restarted and all of a sudden all the Menu Extras in the top right were gone. I had to manually place them all back up except Time and Battery. Again I have everything up to date, and no ghetto crap. I am surprised they didn't fix this Monday. If they don't fix it today or tomorrow then either Panther better come out next Tuesday or it's a real bad bug or they are just lazy.
