    That depends on exectly why you are waiting. It?s possible that SL or a 3rd-party doesn?t support something you need, yet it is supported in Leopard.If you can partition 10GB on your HDD or even on an external drive you can install and test it out before committing to it as your main OS. You can even have MobileMe sync all your preferences over to simplify the issue.

    It's probably a sign of my childish and purile mind that I found this amusing:



    an issue with the four-finger swipe gesture





    Surely such an issue is a failing on the behalf of Charmin?

    It will probably take a week of watching to see what problems are still around.

    So did they finally enable audio over MiniDisplayport to HDMI?!

    I just updated to 10.6.2 via Software Update, and now my sound-bar item is gray and there is no sound from OS X.

    If I press the volume buttons nothing happens else than the dialog with the volume is gray and a "Forbidden symbol" in the bottom.



    I have a 2008 Macbook Pro (4,1).



    Anyone had any problems alike, and can help me troubleshoot?

    Hmm should I get the straight update or the combo updater? (I'm on v10.6.1)



    My instincts tell me the straight update but I vaguely remember seeing something about using the combo updater because it prevents permission issues?

    Weird... QuickTime X now shows a Front Row-style progress bar when watching in Full Screen mode - that is, whenever you use the keyboard or remote controls (when you use the mouse, the normal controls appear). I'm not sure I like this, the big bar looks ugly and out of place there.

    I'll download tonight after I do a TimeMachine backup. I'm glad this is out as the Mail stability fixes will be welcomed.

    People, there are some very basic rules when doing updates….
    1) Back up using TimeMachine or whatever backup program you use before doing any major update to your OS.



    2) Verify your disk before installing update.



    3) Install update. I prefer the Combo Update from the website over Software Updater, but it’s your choice.



    4) If something in the OS that used to work no longer works then restart and see if that fixes it.



    5) If not, then go grab the Combo Update from the website and try it again.
    That should resolve most issues people have with point updates.

    Maybe it happens only on SL Server...

    Looks like Mail.app has a new plugin API version, so Mail plugins (GrowlMail, etc.) are being disabled.

    [QUOTE=AppleInsider;1517041]Apple's second update for Snow Leopard?



    Installed, and it looks like the unexpected jerks in Zoom after a mouse click on my 24" iMac 7,1 with ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro card has been resolved.

    I also find it very useful to repair permissions before and after update.

    Same here. After the update...



    NO SOUND!!! ZERO!!!



    MUTE!!!



    Volume is not gray for me it's just as it always is but there is no sound even if the volume is at its top.



    Why? Oh why? What's your four-oh-four Apple?



    (MacBook Pro 5,1 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3)



    Solution: Go to System Preferences=>Sound=>Output and select "Internal speakers, Built-in Output". For some reasons the update switched it to "Soundflower (2ch)" which I really don't know what that is. However that's the reason why it was mute. Why did it switch? Who knows?!

    File size is only 157.7 MB via Software Update on my iMac 24" early-2009 model.

    That's interesting because a friend just bought a Macbook, and he has the same problem with 10.6.1, which came with the machine.



    Look in sound prefs to see if internal speakers are available. If so, select it. On my friends Macbook, all that's available for output is digital output. When I plugged headphones in, it switched to that, and it worked. But when I unplugged them, all that was available again was digital output.



    You do have the startup sound and some others.
