Apple releases Mac OS X 10.5.3 Update - Page 3

post #81 of 104
I find no errors with 10.5.3, so far.

The changes to 802.1X networking were a bit convoluted on 802.1X with WEP, but once you realise you have to set the network up manually in advanced, reconnection beats the HECK out of any previous Mac OS.

Ehm? My Time Machine volume just got forcefully ejected (the 'use the eject button' error message showed up) when I plugged in my iPod video.

I'm afraid I'm not the only one plagued by this issue: Scheduled delivery of Apple computers to schools run by the New York City Department of Education have been temporarily suspended due to problems related to connecting to the DOE's wireless network infrastructure.

I've really done everything - including a total wipe and install...
As far as I can see it affects (at least) C2D-Macbooks and WPA2-Networks

This may have been mentioned already, no time to read through entire blog ... I used the update download on an old iBook G4 and used the combo on my 8 Core Mac Pro. Both had my @mac.com mail e-mail address changed to myname-old@mac.com.

Once I spotted this (after a while of using it) I simply deleted the '-old' and everything worked it seems so far.

This has to be a minor failure in the post install clean up script I should think.

Watch out it may have happened to you! My mail was sent using this '-old' before I spotted it with no error, and I have no idea yet if it got through.

My update file was 198MB. Seamless download and install. Can't notice much of a change in anything, though.

If you have and it does, then grab the Combo Updater and try again.

The Spaces bug fixes were very much needed and appreciated. Now, if you switch from space to space an application with multiple windows will not sometimes change the top window randomly.

10.5.3 has been fixed for Hackintosh in record time, so now all Psystar has to do is put it on their servers.

So far their update page doesn't list 10.5.3. They may only have it accessible through their specialized Software Update or may be wanting to test it first.

"Fixes an issue in which certain attached hard drives may not show up in the Finder."

ie FireWire drives. What is it with Apple, can't even cope with their own technology? This is the second time that they have stuffed up the FireWire, the first it also took 3 version to fix (10.3.3).

Since I upgraded my iMac G5 2.0Ghz ALS, it has boot up problems and the Firewire drops off. The system is "Unable to list Firewire devices".

I really, really hope that this update fixes it.

At 430Mb it should fix the world's energy crisis, the Middle East and the dearth of good day time television!

when trying to update 2 times last night it gave me a "disk or source file corrupt please contact manufacturer for another copy or call tech support" warning after it seemed to have finished the install......looks like i'm the only one with problems so far....anyone else experiencing this?....I should mention this is while using software updater

Yup, MBP 2.4GHz and I thought 10.5.3 might fix this but nope, first time I put it to sleep after the update and sure enough couldn't get it back.

Also 10.5.3 has reset all kinds of things on my computer. I've got alarms going off from programs I have not used in months.

But, so far Finder has not locked up on me which was happening every other day so I hope that may be fixed (but then again it has only been a day).

BTW I installed the combo update since I was having so many problems before hoping that would help.

Im not having any major issues so far with the update, except for my one issue that still has not corrected itself - iCal still will not automatically delete events and to-do items when I set it to do so after X amount of days...Ive tried deleting the prefs, creating a new user account, I even reinstalled it and it still does not work like its suppose to. iCal in 10.4 on my other HD partition works perfectly.

Any chance you're syncing your calendars to another device/service that is putting those events and items *back*?

Nope. No syncing to anything other than my iPod. which hasn't been plugged in for a week or so.

My experience with 10.5.3 so far - installed in a few minutes, rebooted, done. Remembering installing XP SP2 not long ago it was a welcome change!

Most obvious noted change for me is Time Machine on my MacBook - it feels like it takes slightly longer, but more importantly it seems to be less of a CPU hog and so I can carry on working, sometimes not even noticing it is backing up. Best of all, the fan doesn't kick in while it's going.

So thus far, me = happy.

My Hackintosh is now running 10.5.3 with the modbin kernel in 64 bit mode and seems to have picked up 7 points in Xbench_up to 170. I will have to see what difference it makes when I upgrade to QuadCore 2.83s or even 3.0s...Everything works perfectly without crashes or KPs,just like the real deal but a lot cheaper.

Supermicro X7DAL-E motherboard,
2x 2.33 Dual Core Xeons,
6 Gb DDR-667 FBDIMM ECC RAM,
150 Gb WD SATA drive 10,000 r.p.m. for OSX
500 Gb WD SATA drive 7200 r.p.m. for Home folders,
Pioneer DVR-212D DL burner,
1.44 Mb floppy drive,
Gigabyte NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS 512 Mb PCI-E video card,
PCI-X Firewire card,
W-7728IN 300M Wireless-N PCI adapter.

This is a self built machine though so I don't know about anyhting specific regarding psystar.
X7DWA-N Supermicro mobo,Dual QC 3.0 Xeons, 12Gb RAM, 6 Raptor drives + 500 Gb TM drive, 2x DVR-218L burners, M-Audio 7.1 sound card, Titan 650 case running Leopard 10.6.6,Win7 x64, Linux Fluxbox...

Firewire works just fine on my iMac G5. Are you assuming that Firewire support is broken across their entire line of computers because your one machine is having problems? Just curious.

USB, on the other hand... sucks! Not a Leopard or Mac problem. Just wish Firewire had a stronger foothold on the market.

Hey guys

Is anybody having problems with 10.5.3 and PEAP?

I had no issues connecting to my school's PEAP-protected WLAN with 10.5.2. After upgrading, the system keeps "failing authentication". I've downgraded to 10.5.2, and am wondering if it's safe to apply the update again

I have no problems connecting to my personal WPA-2 network at home
