10.1.2 Where can I get the download

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I only have a 56k modem at home so I want to burn the updater(30mb!!!) to a cd at the office but I can't find the download.

If you go to the Software Updater within OS X (asuming you have OS X at work), you can go to the File menu and choose Save As and download the .pkg file to be burned to CD and then installed on whichever machine you want.

If you don't have OS X at work, you'll have to wait a few days for Apple to post a link to download it yourself.

Thank you. I have already installed the update on my machine at work so if I go to softwareupdate it says I am up-to-date.

Is there a work around?

On your work computer go to The Library folder on your hard disk, then the Receipts folder. I think if you copy "MacOSXUpdate10.1.2.pkg" you can install it on your home computer.

That only downloads a 1.something MB file, AFAIK, check it before you burn it. The actual update is 30 MB.

You have to copy that pkg in the temporary folder BEFORE you restart the computer. There was something on macosxhints.com about it. Here's the article that talks about it:

<a href="http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20010501154625536" target="_blank">http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20010501154625536</a>

Maybe that'll help.

[edit: here's what you need to do before you restart: cp -R /private/tmp/501/MacOSXUpdate10.1.2.pkg/ ~/Desktop/MacOSXUpdate10.1.2.pkg (or whatever you want to call it.]

Thanks chaps, great advice but it is too late as I have already installed the update at the office AND re-booted.

Does anyine know of a direct link to the file. I have tried 6 times using software update at home and each time I get 10-20mb down and I loose the connection to my ISP. If I can use the download manager from i.e.5.1 for OS X it will re-start where it left off. I really wish Apple had included this function into "software update"

JW: I'm uploading the file to my webserver now. It should be done in about 10 minutes. I private messaged you with a link to it.

Can you give me the link too? I've installed it and I wanna reinstall it and the pkg file isn't working.

eman,
The link is: <a href="http://128.192.63.129/MacOSXUpdate10.1.2.pkg.tgz" target="_blank">http://128.192.63.129/MacOSXUpdate10.1.2.pkg.tgz</a> but I'm not sure that the tarred and gziping has worked. I wanted to keep the pkg intact but for some reason, when it gets expanded it's just a normal folder. You can try it and see if it works.

i'm downloading it on a 56k connection now. I'm sure I read somewhere that Su allows a resumable download, think so anyway.

You can download the updater as a single file from

I thought that too but I can say from experience it doesn't (at least not in my case). I was half way done or so with it and somehow I got disconnected...it said to just click "OK" and then "Install" and it would restart from where it left off...but it started from the begining.

Thanks, it worked perfectly. Unfortunately I'm still having some problems with 10.1.2.
