If you use GrowlMail and 10.6.3 works fine for you, wait for a GrowlMail update first!



    This is common for every update to Mail. The solution is simple:

    Edit:



    The above link was for Mail 4.2. Mail 4.3 needs different UUIDs as in this updated post:

    On my MacBook5,2 the update was less than 300MB and works fine. If you depend on iCal, note that this app is updated as well.



    The update failed on my MacBook6,1. I have tried it both via Software Update and via the 800MB+ download from Apple's website. I am now going through the Repair Permissions routine.



    If you are also having problems, please post as I would like to know what is going on.

    Good place, I'm not so sure, but a couple decent sites I've found are:



    Thanks!

    After updating I have to say that Safari feels snappier? - no seriously it does.

    Installed 10.6.4, fixed my issue my MBP (which the had the logical board replaced) with CS3. CS3 suite is running again. http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/834/cpsid_83499.html

    That's unfortunate if true. It's way past time for this. It's sad to see that MS has beaten Apple to this with support in Win 7.



    The drives that don't seem to need trim are the ones with the Sandforce controller, but even though the source is a reliable one, I'm not entirely sure he's correct for the long term, and those drives are expensive. I've been recommending to people that they stay away from SSD'a until trim is here.

    Downloaded the update. Opened CS3 InDesign. Opened a one page PageMaker document. Changed the fonts. Attempted to "Save". Crash. Tried again. Attempted to "Save as ...". Crash. Does not seem the problem with CS3 has been fixed.

    I'm pretty sure one of those crashy extensions is adblocker, because that's all I have and my Safari has been crashing many multiple times a day since the update.

    Ah yes, another OS X point release and the usual run of posts expecting god knows what to be "fixed". Every user has their favorite "known", "documented", and "ignored by Apple" bug that only they have but assume everybody has. Just like clockwork.

    Updated and so far there are no issues...it does seem to be snappier so I will have to run geekbench to find out for sure.

    It fixed my no-issues problem.

    Just checked. My 13" mid-2010 MBP with the NVidia MCP89 AHCI SATA controller stills says No under TRIM support.



    I wonder if Apple is using those middle of the road SSDs because they don't have on-board garbage collection that works with HFS file systems.

    While I agree, as my experience and that of a friend suggest, I want to be clear that it's not a slam on AdBlock. It could very well be that Safari 5 is having a problem with a properly configured extension.

    That will always be the case until Apple can figure out a way to fix stupid.

    A lot of big companies use those Samsung SSD's which aren't fast, but seem to be reliable. The performance isn't good. Neither is it good for most SSD's. And after they slow down after a month or so, it hardly paid to have bought them. Saving a few seconds opening programs may feel good, but has little to do with the performance of the computer.

    Yesterday's drop and what was released today is the same build. My dev machine is a 17" MacBook Pro (MacBookPro5,2) with an Intel X25-M Gen2 SSD running the latest and TRIM supported firmware, 2CV102HD. Still no dice on TRIM support in System Profiler. Please let me know if you have different luck on other hardware. For my part, I'll be pissed if it does work for others but happy for you at the same time.



    Edit: I wonder if/when people who bought the stock SSD start to raise hell about performance, Apple will give us some indication when we can expect support. * crosses fingers *

    That's weird I have that but no freezes or crashes at all ... I'm running in Mac Pro 8 Core.

    Dang, I was hoping it would add iPhone-style scrolling to MacBook Pros prior to the current gen. Oh well, I guess It was a long shot anyway.

    Dictionary.app keeps crashing on me as soon as I open it and put the mouse anywhere on the window. I suppose the combo update is in order now.

    I wonder it they fixed the file transfer on iChat. Not sure if everyone else is having problem, but I sure am.

    For the 2nd update in a row (I bought a 15" Mac Book Pro in mid-May and had to download 10.6.3 and some other files) the MBP did not restart after installation and I had to do a safe reboot followed by a restart.



    I'm going to call AppleCare tomorrow to see if this means anything. Otherwise, I've had no bad symptoms with the new MBP and even took it to California for a week without incident.

    Just happened on my mid-2009 MBP as well. The "suck" is that I think my apple care is expired.
