    Don't see anything about the freezing issue seen here. If anyone with the freezing issue applies this and it resolves the problem PLZ let me know. Waiting for that one to be fixed before dropping my $$.



    Thanks.

    There is a difference between Apples downloads page and an Intel-only update via Software Update.

    The stand-alone DMG file you can download from Apple's website really is 109 MB. It probably contains all the updates relevant to every hardware configuration.



    The 39 MB download you got from Software Update probably pares the download down to only include updates for the hardware and optional software components that are actually present on your particular machine.

    Great! I'm finally able to connect to my WPA2-Network (again).

    Plus: Time Machine now calculates correct sizes when excluding folders...

    Keep ipfw running... Gotta build trust in the fancy new firewall

    Someone over at TUAW posted a link to a PDF list of the contents in the update. I'll link it here.



    I was looking through the list and on page 12, there is a chunk of file updates to ATI drivers. Not sure if these are the same drivers for the ATI cards in the iMacs that are locking up, but if they are, I am waiting to hear word on whether this in fact might fix the freezing issue. I upgraded to Leopard then retro-graded back to Tiger because of the freezes.



    UPDATE: Just looked more at the pdf and the ATI driver updates stretch from page 12 to page 19! I am holding a glimmer of hope that they've fixed the freezing issue with this.

    Ok, downloaded!



    I checked disc utility and now it shows the progress!!!

    Awesome, it's I guess kinda snappier on startup.

    I was hoping that individual folder views would now stick correctly, but they still don't...

    Back from 10.5.1 update and so far so good.



    Although I thought the same thing on my Mac Pro with the 10.4.11 update which hosed my Weather and Stocks widgets. More on that drama in another thread but one more reason to upgrade it to Leop! (Damn you production boxes!)

    I was hoping to see updates to x11, restoring the same functionality as Tiger's x11. Does anyone have insight on the matter?

    Thanks.



    Over at the MacRumors forum some people are claiming that there is another update for iMacs. I am not sure if it appears only after installing 10.5.1, but you might want to hop over there and ask.

    I noticed that when I ran repair permissions, I got a lot of errors that have been reported by other users on Apple's forums.

    Anybody else see them?
