Apple releases Mac OS X 10.5.1 Update for Leopard users

post #1 of 103
Thread Starter 
Apple on Thursday released Mac OS X 10.5.1 Update, its first maintenance and security update to the new Leopard operating system which is recommended for all users.

Mac OS X 10.5.1 is available as a 110MB download and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac, Apple says.

The following improvements for both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs are included in this update:

AirPort
Allows password-protected accounts on AirPort Disks to show up on in the Finder's Shared Sidebar.Resolves an issue with saved passwords for wireless networks.
Back to My Mac
Improves the reliability of Back to My Mac-enabled Macs appearing in the Finder's Shared Sidebar.Improves compatibility with D-Link NAT gateways.
Disk utilities
Restores the functionality of the progress bar during permission repairs in Disk Utility.Addresses an issue that could produce an alert when creating disk images using Disk Utility or Terminal.Improves disk partitioning when multiple RAID sets are created on the same disk.
iCal
iCal alarms are now more reliably delivered via email.Resolves an issue when inviting attendees via a CalDAV account.
Mail
Improves stability when resizing columns in the message viewer or switching between Stationery templates in email messages.Addresses an issue in which attachments enclosed inside an HTML link may not be clickable in email messages.Fixes an issue with email accounts added using the "Simple Setup" feature in which messages cannot be sent due to an SMTP connection failure.Improves Smart Mailboxes compatibility with .Mac Sync, and addresses an issue with To Do's disappearing when using Smart Mailboxes.Resolves an issue with syncing Mail accounts with .Mac in which multiple On My Mac folders appear in the Mailbox pane.
Networking
Addresses an issue in which Microsoft Windows shared folders may be read-only when connected via SMB.
Printing
Resolves an issue in which user-selected values on Paper Feed PDE are reset to default while saving a custom preset.
Security, Firewall
Addresses a code signing issue; third-party applications can now run when included in the Application Firewall or when whitelisted in Parental Controls.In Security preferences' Firewall tab, the "Block All" option is now called "Allow Only essential services".Includes recent Apple security updates..
System and Finder
Addresses a potential data loss issue when moving files across partitions in the Finder.Resolves an issue with login after turning off FileVault for a specific user account.Improves compatibility with Adobe Flash-based uploaders used by .Mac Web Gallery and certain other websites and applications.Resolves a potential text drawing issue with certain Adobe Flash-based websites and applications.
Time Machine
Addresses formatting issues with certain drives used with Time Machine (specifically, single-partition MBR drives greater than 512 GB in size as well as NTFS drives of any size and partition scheme).Resolves an issue in which files restored in Time Machine may be restored to the backup hierarchy rather than the folders to which they belong.
Mac OS X 10.5.1 Server

Apple also released Mac OS X Server 10.5.1 Update [110MB] which delivers several improvements, including:

Server Preferences
Addresses an issue which could block adding external users to a newly-created group.
NetBoot
Addresses an issue in which 10.5.x-based software images could lead to an unresponsive NetBoot client.
Open Directory
Addresses an issue blocking control of client application access when usernames contain non-ASCII characters.Addresses intermittent Password Server errors.
SMB File Service
Addresses an issue in which Microsoft Windows clients may misinterpret shared folders' ACL settings.

Don't see anything about the freezing issue seen here. If anyone with the freezing issue applies this and it resolves the problem PLZ let me know. Waiting for that one to be fixed before dropping my $$.

Thanks.

There is a difference between Apples downloads page and an Intel-only update via Software Update.

The stand-alone DMG file you can download from Apple's website really is 109 MB. It probably contains all the updates relevant to every hardware configuration.

The 39 MB download you got from Software Update probably pares the download down to only include updates for the hardware and optional software components that are actually present on your particular machine.

Great! I'm finally able to connect to my WPA2-Network (again).
Plus: Time Machine now calculates correct sizes when excluding folders...

Someone over at TUAW posted a link to a PDF list of the contents in the update. I'll link it here.

I was looking through the list and on page 12, there is a chunk of file updates to ATI drivers. Not sure if these are the same drivers for the ATI cards in the iMacs that are locking up, but if they are, I am waiting to hear word on whether this in fact might fix the freezing issue. I upgraded to Leopard then retro-graded back to Tiger because of the freezes.

UPDATE: Just looked more at the pdf and the ATI driver updates stretch from page 12 to page 19! I am holding a glimmer of hope that they've fixed the freezing issue with this.

Back from 10.5.1 update and so far so good.

Although I thought the same thing on my Mac Pro with the 10.4.11 update which hosed my Weather and Stocks widgets. More on that drama in another thread but one more reason to upgrade it to Leop! (Damn you production boxes!)

I was hoping to see updates to x11, restoring the same functionality as Tiger's x11. Does anyone have insight on the matter?

Thanks.

Over at the MacRumors forum some people are claiming that there is another update for iMacs. I am not sure if it appears only after installing 10.5.1, but you might want to hop over there and ask.

My Keychain and .Mac issues appear to be fixed.

I noticed that when I ran repair permissions, I got a lot of errors that have been reported by other users on Apple's forums.
Anybody else see them?

This seems to be a complex issue. apple has released more than one update for this.

Try looking here for more info:

But, now there is a claim that it may be a hardware issue.

Yep, got them all. Now where do I pickup my prize? I laughed when DU said it had "Less than a minute to repair permissions," when it results in more than ten minutes. Looks like Apple has to go back to the drawing board; not very comforting for the end user.

Looks like DU gets a DUI (Disk Utilities Incapacitated).

I just noticed the iTunes UI is now consistent with Leopard (the faded border when it's inactive). I hadn't updated to 7.5 until just now so I'm not sure if that came in 7.5 or if that came with the 10.5.1 update. Anyone know?

There is no need to repair permissions unless you're trying to diagnose a problem.

I just walked one of my friends through the updating process, and had him check for another update after that (he's got one of the new iMacs) and he said there are no more updates, just the Mac OS X 10.5.1 update.
What I mean is, there are no other updates for the iMacs that have to do with the freezing.

I had the same experience.

All in all (including bugs), I am still loving the OS more than any other OS Apple has released. Best OS ever in my opinion...

Apple have also released a patch for the ATI card in the new iMac: "Updates the graphics firmware on the ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro to improve system stability."

I don't believe that it really hurts anything. We suggest that you run Disk Repair prior to updating the OS and/or applications as well, particularly if you have moved something.

I just did it before this update and found a number of fixes.

I haven't seen myself in any troubles since updating to Leopard, but this update gets my iMac running more smoothly than before

When you say "we", who do you mean, because Apples support pages suggest that you DON'T unless you are experiencing difficulty.

I do it whenever I add an app, update an app, and do any Apple updates.

Can you supply a link to that Apple support page?

You know every once in a while I'd like to hear, instead of all the whining and complaining (less here than on Mac Rumours, I must say) someone give out a sincere, heartfelt thanks to all the software programmers who must have been working incredibly long hours to get all these updates out the door so quickly.

Thanks guys, you've done an incredible job.

Repairing disk permissions is pure voodoo.

"We" suggest to drink a sip of water, burn a match, blow it out and touch the ground before running an update.

I installed the update and it seemed to be working fine. I went and watched TV, and when i came back, i woke it up, and it was frozen! The weird thing is that i don't have an aluminum iMac, its one of the white ones! This never happened before, only now after the update. Also, try putting iTunes into the mini mode were it stays on top of all the windows, and go into time machine. It stays on top in tm.
