    On an iMac G5 2.1 with the delta update, it rebooted but after the Apple, I got the dreaded NO symbol and fans at high speed (circle with slash). Shut it down and restarted and it seems fine. Might run the Combo Update just to be sure.

    Don't be sad! Guess we'll just have to live with this for a month or so.

    This is *bad*!

    I thought Macs were supposed to 'just work'!

    - not require intimate knowledge of Unix to do a system update

    I guess it comes down to the amount of testing that Apple put in to the upgrade process

    - even though the options & combinations in the Mac world are considerably less than the Windows world, it looks like Apple aren't testing enought before releasing.

    You would think that the upgrade process would do things like disable Time Machine before doing the upgrade.

    The clicking sound from my Trackpad is so loud, it's making my ears bleed!

    - is this normal?

    (This feature wasn't effected by the upgrade!)

Hard-rebooted into Safe Mode and ran the Combo Updater again. The Combo installer completed the install, but then after clicking on RESTART, the installer wouldn't quit. Hard-rebooted again (this time starting up from my rescue drive), ran Drive Genius, repaired permissions, restarted normally and now I seem to be up and running. Not sure what that was all about.

    About the permissions though… whenever I repair permissions, there's always a laundry list of permissions that "are such-n-such, but should be such-n-so" but Disk Utility never actually changes them no matter how many times I run the repair? Is that normal?


    If you were a Windows user you would know that if a software upgrade worked, then don't F* with it!

    - leave well alone, thank your lucky stars, give thanks to Allah etc.

    - I guess, being a Mac User, you thought 'It worked, and was so much fun, I'll do it again in a different way, just to see if that is as much fun as well'!

    - but you are right - it *should* have been ok - afterall it's just installing 10.5.8 on 10.5.8

    - but this must be a combination that Apple forgot to test, unfortunately

    - welcome to the world of computing!

    I updated my wife's MacBook (White - Intel) to 10.5.8 on Saturday. She had no problems when it was plugged in, but when she disconnected it, it lost the connection to our WiFi, with it saying it has a "Self-assigned IP address". I just spent the last hour playing with my router, thinking something was wrong with that.

    Turns out this is some bug in the update.

    Whenever you disconnect the power source from the MacBook, it loses the WiFi connection and you can't get it to work. If I open a web browser, it won't connect to any site.

    I was able to connect to a neighbor's unsecured WiFi signal on the battery. I'm going to try with a powered connection.

    This is INFURIATING.

    I just can't trust these system updates anymore. I'm starting to think that if my system isn't showing problems, there's really no reason to risk an update bug.

    Will the Apple Genuis bar be able to resolve this for me? I ran a backup of her system onto an external hard drive weeks ago. Can I restore to that if it was running 10.5.7 at the time?

    As I read on slashdot, many users described problems like you. There was also a workaround linked in the article which might help you with the wifi-issues: How to fix Airport/Wi-Fi problems causes by Mac OS X 10.5.8

    Have a try and good luck!
