Yeah, my EyeTV is super unstable now. I just installed Tiger 10.4.3 and I'm running EyeTV 1.8.3 (the most recent version) on a dual 2.5ghz G5. Hopefully EyeTV releases an update soon! I've gotten the dark screen that says you must restart now by holding down the power button on the front of computer. When that message comes up, my G5 is in full on cool down mode with fans blazing. I'm afraid to let my EyeTV record shows while I'm away for fear this will happen when I'm not there to shut her down.

I cannot install this on my G5 DP2.0Ghz Rev B. I have tried to Software Update (showed as 57.8 MB) didn't work, it goes to install and says the package was moved to trash and sure enough it's there. I downloaded the 97MB and it won't install either says error has occured. I repaired disk permissions got a lonnnnnnng list and then restarted and tried the 97 MB again still no luck. Now my mail application won't work (opens but gives me a blank screen) and there's no telling what else doesn't work because I haven't sat down and opened anything else up. This sucks, I have never had a problems with updates even when I ran OS 9..... guess there is a first time for everything.

working fine on 2x2GHz powermac (dec 04)

only weird thing is my fans keep kicking in - can't say I have noticed them very often ever before, and now i can hear them revving up every half an hour or so (only for a few seconds)

its probably a good thing heat-eliminating wise, but yeah... i think its a 10.4.3 thing.

Did my upgrade last night on my PM G5 dual 2.0 and NO problems whatsoever.

I also have to say that I *never* had any problems with upgrades, *ever*. And I, being a Unix geek, do substantial tweaking on my system (from sudo, to Apache, to changing the Tcl system package, upgrading Perl, PHP, adding fink and darwinports, etc....)

I wonder what people are doing to their machines to get the panics and other wild symptoms which are definitely not the norm on a "normal" system.

One thing I rarely do, however, is shutdown my Mac. Or have any power failures (Switzerland power is remarkably good, surprise, surprise). I know a power failure takes years away from machines.

You are upset that Apple permanently disabled a disabled feature? Quartz 2D Extreme is not an official feature of Tiger. Never has been. It needs to be enabled using the developer tools. When, and if, Quartz 2D Extreme is finalized it will be included in a future update.

I've experienced intermittent choppy DVD playback with 10.4.3. This is reproducible on both my 2.0 GHz iMac with 2 GB RAM and my 1.25 GHz PB with 2 GB RAM. I know for a fact that this wasn't an issue with 10.4.2 as I watched movies with both nearly every day.

I downloaded the stand-alone Combo update from Apple and installed it on both of my Macs. I then repaired permissions on both before attempting DVD playback. I have noticed that the movie would stutter every few minutes. Is this behavior something anyone else has experienced? I'm also writing Apple and telling them about this issue.

Thanks for the info. I didn't want to update my wife's eMac before getting positive reports of EyeTV working with 10.4.3.

[edit: Just saw sloanlo's post about the EyeTV problem. Maybe I'll hold off updating the eMac a bit longer.]

I've seen more reports of EyeHome problems with 10.4.3 than with previous updates. It's been working fine for me through 10.4.2.

Yeah we've already commented on that - it's definitely new! I think this makes it a lot easier for people to know if their programs work on both! Hopefully Aperture, iLife '06 and iWorks '06 are all universal binaries.

For what it's worth, I used to have various random weird issues that rose up and reared their ugly heads in a variety of problems, ranging from kernel panics to strange hangs.

I did exactly one thing a while ago (6+ months, so it may no longer pertain to current versions and I don't want to dis the developer(s) of what appear to be pretty cool, but not exactly essential programs and m0dz), I removed all the Unsanity haxies and the APE Application Framework.

Presto. All the weirdness went away.

I like the APE framework and many of the haxies are highly neato. But I just don't have the time to dick around searching for obscure problems with no apparent resolution -- or waiting for another .dot update from UnSanity every time a new 10.4.x release arrives -- I need to USE my computers, like, NOW.

This is sorta a bummer since some cool programs depend on the APE framework for additional functionality, but the positives far outweigh the negatives in this case, for me anyway.

Your milage may vary.

I believe somebody else had mentionned it earlier. Prior to this, the only way one could tell was to use the command \\usr\\bin\\ld to check the architecture(s) of a binary. Much nicer to have it in the Get Info window.


As for download, software update took a while before figuring out that it needed to download the 56M package for my 600MHz iBook. Maybe the larger ones are for the computers that support more features...

Quartz Extreme refers to GPU acceleration of the Quartz Compositor. Quartz 2D Extreme refers to GPU acceleration of Quartz 2D functions. They're two different "features".
post #98 of 143
Fixed blown-out margins.

As far as Q2D Extreme goes, we found out during beta that it is NOT a good idea to turn it on with Quartz Debug.

Kernel panics out the wazoo if you do, requiring a complete reinstall.

NOW HEAR THIS - BE ADVISED - DO NOT TURN ON Q2D EXTREME.

It was an official feature but not for the reason you believe. Quartz 2D Extreme is not Quartz Extreme (see King Chung Huang's reply above).

Apple had at least one special session during last year's WWDC, dedicated to Q2DE that would appear in Tiger. However, when finally Tiger was released and Apple updated the OS X pages, Q2DE was missing from the new features. We soon found out that it was in place but disabled. Too much problematic for now it seems.

So, yes Q2DE was a promised Tiger feature from last year, but then Apple never put it publicly in the OS X description pages.

I can attest to this, unfortunately.

Despite my post just above, I decided to see how fast QE2D was and enabled it (with the defaults write).

BAM, crash right after reboot and anytime afterwards.

Solution:
- Boot single-user mode (Option-s during power boot),
- then follow instructions on how to fsck and mount the / filesystem
- then "default write defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Quartz2DExtremeEnabled -boolean FALSE"

No reinstall required. This is Un*x after all! ;-)

Updated this morning, and rebooted.

None of my rules in Mail work anymore.
I can delete them.
If I add a new rule the Mail pref window wont close anymore.

So, no more rules in mail.

Doesnt work before or after repairing permissions.
post #103 of 143
For me, just fine, 9/10 - because the permissions on my widgets keep showing up as wrong in Disk Utility, though effects nothing in real usage.

But I see a whole lot of varying mileage here. I thought we were driving Macs, not Hummers and Volkswagens!

My own notes:
- download size depends on system config, nothing else.
- widget 'dock' background is the same, 'that guy' had just installed a 3rd party mod he forgot about
- spotlight did not need to re-index my drive (thank god, laptop drive+tons of files)
- safari seems a bit faster
- get info shows application architecture in the More Info section
- Mighty Mouse software installed automatically, systems with no Mighty Mouse preferences set beforehand have both buttons set to default as 'one button mouse mode'
- starts up from power on to full desktop in 70 seconds on my ageing 2003 powerbook, comparable to before
- my trusty .kext hack from back in the Panther days still keeps my fan from coming on all the damned time - hurray for kernel extensions!

Clean install and works great.

One third-party app break to report - artlantis R loses the ability to draw in the 2D view .. making it quick tricky to place lights and cameras. :-)

Otherwise looks like a great update.

Only 8/10 over here. Had some weirdness with the Finder before (disappeared from the dock, and did not appear when you did the Apple-TAB thing, even though it was definitely open) but it has not happened since so I can ignore that. However, the permissions are not quite right - the same files, mostly widgets, get repaired every time. Seems a bit laggy booting up now - there is a delay in loading my menu bar icons (bluetooth, internet, wireless, system volume etc) which was not there before.

Apple Remote Desktop:
http://www.apple.com/remotedesktop/

Its a remote admin thing, kind of like VNC but given the Apple treatment so it doesn't suck as much and can do things!

I'd love one for Windoze actually. My current setup is through M$'s own Remote Desktop Connection, fortunately to only 1 remote pc! In typical style, where Apple took VNC and made it pretty sweet, Microsoft took it and ... gave it sound. Laggy crappy sound at that. Nice that they released it for Macs to admin XP boxes though. Shows they know the humans like to get their hands on the opposition's computer in preference!

Flakey RAM (or other hardware) often causes that random misbehavior. Of course it's sometimes software-related, as you discovered:

If you're not using APE I think you want to invert "positives" and "negatives" for that final sentence to make sense.

For me, the potential negative risks of running APE+haxies still outweigh the positive benefits. I tinkered with them a bit in 10.1/10.2 but with every major OS X update I've gotten more conservative with what end up reinstalling from the previous release. Experience has tamed my necessities; a fast Tiger is more satisfying than a fat one.

I've run CodeTek VirtualDesktop for a few years and have never noticed any system instability caused by its use of mach_inject and mach_override. All of my rare kernel panics have been hardware-related.

Safari's threading Model vs. OmniWeb's threading Model.

Clearly, OmniWeb 5.1.2 is highly threaded with less ram requirements, but more virtual memory. It doesn't pass the Acid 2 Test, but very close. This means they haven't updated their WebCore Kit yet.

We already know Safari was bloat:

From serious testing to this basic three tabs test identical to OmniWeb it is clear that they focused on Acid2 compliance and behind the scenes threading and memory issues never made it in.

The jpeg-2000 saved screenshot doesn't render correctly in Safari: Guess they didn't make that into the release.

Here is a larger JPG. (244KB)

cool. looks like OmniWeb will benefit more from multiple core machines, since all those threads can be handled by different cores at once. may not be strong enough a case for using omniweb specifically over safari on single-core machines, unless RAM is a critical bottleneck ?

Adam Steinberg at Elgato has confirmed that 10.4.3 breaks the EyeHome application necessary to stream content to the Elgato EyeHome hardware device.

I also have to say that I *never* had any problems with upgrades, *ever*. And I, being a Unix geek, do substantial tweaking on my system (from sudo, to Apache, to changing the Tcl system package, upgrading Perl, PHP, adding fink and darwinports, etc....)

Wow. Clearly, this guy doesn't believe in the jinx gods!

Its a remote admin thing, kind of like VNC but given the Apple treatment so it doesn't suck as much and can do things!

I'd love one for Windoze actually. My current setup is through M$'s own Remote Desktop Connection, fortunately to only 1 remote pc! In typical style, where Apple took VNC and made it pretty sweet, Microsoft took it and ... gave it sound. Laggy crappy sound at that. Nice that they released it for Macs to admin XP boxes though. Shows they know the humans like to get their hands on the opposition's computer in preference!

Oh I know Remote Desktop I just couldn't think what the acronym was representing!

Cheers

The permissions keep showing up as information, not as a problem. This is similar to previous updates when Apple modified the permissions on other items, and Disk Utility would throw up an informative note "blah blah app is using special permissions. They are now using blah blah blah."

I guess it's important to developers or something to know that something their app may integrate with uses different permissions.
