    I'm eager to get home to my MBP and see if the right-click trackpad trick, which works for both 17" MBPs and plain ol' MBs, finally works for the 15" MBP.

    I am glad you posted that. Piss on .7 if that happens. I hate the buzzy hiss thingy a majiggy. I was so hoping this update would fix the problem.

    As per the usual, I wait about a month (minimum) to see what issues pop up at MacFixit.com before even thinking about updating the software. I've gotten burned in a big, big way before by simply updating without thinking about it...

    for those wondering, you will get your right-click option with this update...."tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click"



    also, there is "clicking" "dragging" & "Drag Lock (tap again to release)" options



    features I won't be using once I revert to 10.4.6

    lol, installed it, took ages to shut down and ages to start up again and the configuration assistant started up, playing the tiger welcome movie.

    Everything else looks fine to me

    Nope. But there is 3rd party software for that functionality.

    Yes!!! Just rebooted after the update and was about to post the good news myself.



    By the way, about the "whining" people are always talking about... Does it matter if you're plugged into the power adapter or not? Because I do hear a bit of a noise on my 15" MBP -- both now and before I updated -- as soon as I'm running on battery power, but that noise goes away when I plug the power adapter back in. The noise isn't consistent even when staying on battery, as it seems to go away after a while.

    Looks like i'll be the guinea pig for the Server update, unless anyone else is installing now.. gotta do it just for the (hopefully) fixed AFP issue

    Dashboard it performing much better, it starts up a lot quicker. My BBC weather widget is not working correctly though. Other than that things are running smoothly. 10.4.7 where have you been all my life?

    2.16GHz MacBook Pro here. Issues so far:



    About This Mac screen no longer works.

    Won't shut down cleanly, have to open terminal and "sudo reboot" to get to to start shutting down, sticks on screen with grey swirly thing.

    Keyboard hotkeys (brightness, volume etc) no longer work.

    Keyboard & Mouse prefpane makes System Preferences crash.



    EDIT: Turns out it all works, it was all just clogged up waiting about 5 minutes for an AFS connection to fail (wasn't that supposed to be the #1 fix in this patch?) - got the AFS failed to mount dialog, clicked OK and all of the keys I'd hit and the about box showed up at the same time.

    Ok i'm trying to install server, but its been sitting on "configuing installation" for 10 mins - force quit or leave it?



    EDIT: sat on "configuring" for 15 minutes then installed in about two, restarting now....

    Don't revert; there's an *easy* workaround.



    TO EVERYONE WITH WHINING INTEL MACHINES:



    If you want to keep all the improvements in 10.4.7, but want the mirror widget/Photo Booth trick to still work, simply download the USB drivers for Intel 10.4.5 from here:



    http://developer.apple.com/hardwared.../usbdebug.html



    ...after you install 10.4.7.



    Direct link: ftp://ftp.apple.com/developer/Develo...40.4.3-log.dmg



    Install the non-debug version in the disk image (the one without "log"), restart & the fix will work once more!



    You can even bypass the mirror widget/Photo Booth trick and simply put MagicNoiseKiller.app in your Login Items list for your user account in System Preferences. (It's an app based on development sample code by Apple that also accesses the iSight. The guy who made the app stripped away most of the code, so all it does is connect to the iSight, close the connection, and quit -- and blessed silence is the result.)



    If this worked for you, spread the news on other forii for anyone who might find this helpful. I've been using this solution for months, and it works great.
