Mac OS X 10.1.5 Released - Page 3

post #81 of 89
Right now I have an uptime of 8 Days, 10 Hours,and 54 Minutes with Mac OS 10.1.5.

I have a Power Mac G4 450DP, 960MB of RAM and an AGP Radeon video card. I have a OWC FireWire drive, a Que 12x10x32x FW CD-RW, a Lexmark Z22 USB printer, and Harman Kardon Soundsticks.

Everything has been running really well. I haven't even felt the need to restart. (In some previous versions of Mac OS X, I would restart as the sound or the network would start to get funky on me...)

Good luck if, and when, you decide to upgrade to 10.1.5.

Oh yeah, I also noticed that my Firewall is now logging again correctly. According to Brian Hill, this broke on dual processor Macs with 10.1.4. It's now fixed. :-)

Have a great day!

Tom

He's also not alone. There was someone who wrote that they had a KP on thier 450 DP on versiontracker.

Starfleet, best of luck! And thanks for keeping us updated.</strong><hr></blockquote>

if the super-savvy starfleet cant fix his computer, then i am *not* touching 10.1.5. good luck, man. &lt;sigh&gt;

i honestly dont need anything that's in the update, so why bother? i noticed that idisk has gotten a bit faster than it was 2 months ago, perhaps for reasons that have nothing to do with my mac. yeah, it's still slow, but i only upload stuff to idisk when i have some time to spare. has anyone had trouble with their ethernet driver and broadband internet connection as reported by macnn? that only gives me another reason to stay away from this un-update.

Okay, I just got the *strangest* panic last night -- and in the middle of several hours rendering a 3d animation... ARRRGG!!!

Anyway, I have seen quite a number of different panics in my day, but nothing quite like this. I figure it's got to be 10.1.5 related, because I wasn't using anything I hadn't used long before -- just running NetMonitor, Cinema 4D, Photoshop 7, OmniWeb, Mail, Adium, and MT-NewsWatcher. The usual backtraces splashed up, but towards the end it started looking really funky.

Can anyone make heads or tails outta this part? :confused:

StarfleetX,

Sorry to hear about your problems, but 10.1.5 has been flawless for me. I think that it may even have fixed that annoying iMac sleep problem (won't sleep or won't wake up if it does).

Question - how do I tell how long it's been since I last rebooted. I assume that there's a log somewhere. Can I do this in the GUI (command lines scare me)? Thanks.

The CLI command is *really* easy, though. Just open the Terminal and enter a one-word command: uptime. Go on. Try it! It won't bite ya'.

As for me and my troubles, bah, thanks but don't worry about it. I survived the "Public Alpha" release and many internal builds between each GM so I am not bothered too bad by panics. It's just that I'd come to expect, especially after such a long wait, that Apple would have more carefully checked such a minor update before sending it out the door. Take a look through Apple's own forums and you'll see I'm not the only one having strange problems.

note: I use those internal builds on external drives and never as my primary OS. 10.1.5 is the first "official" build that I've ever had this many problems with as my main OS.

Okay - here's a dumb question. How do I open a terminal window?

So is anyone having PostScript font problems? Starfleet X et al?
I feel like Ben Stein in Ferris Bueller's day off! "Anyone, Anyone, Anyone...? Amerigo Vespugi. Who invented the whatchamacallit? Anyone, Anyone, Anyone...? Thomas Edison. Anyone, Anyone, Anyone?"
And OT but how many fonts can we have?
