Mac OS X 10.5.6 Update Goes Smoothly


The Register (http://www.theregister.co.uk) and other sites such as Macfixit, Mac in touch and others are showing a number of problems.

I’d like to report updating five systems without problem:

  • Mac Mini (Intel 1.83GHz Core 2 Duo) – Mac OS 10.5 Server – 10 client edition
    • Server version of Mac OS X
    • External Firewire storage
    • USB Memory Card Reader
    Combo Update without issue. ~ 10 minutes
     
  • iMac 24″ (Intel 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo)
    • Vista under Boot Camp
    • Various large video and graphical editing packages.
    • MS Office
    • Firewire 800 RAID storage
    • USB Card Reader
    • Firewire Scanner
    • Graphical Pen Tablet 
    Software Update (Delta) without issue. ~ 5 minutes
     
  • 12″ Powerbook (PPC 1.5GHz)
    • MS Office
    Software Update (Delta) without issue. ~ 15 minutes
     
  • Power Mac G4 Cube (PPC 1.4GHz) 
    • MS Office
    • Zend Studio for Eclipse
    • Entropy PHP on Apache Package
    • Scanner
    • Printer
    • Graphical Tablet
    Combo Update without issue. ~ 15 minutes
     
  • iMac 15″ (PPC 700MHz, dome shaped effort)
    • MS Office

Combo Update without issue. ~25 minutes

 

Of course I have yet to use the systems in anger, so I will report if I notice any further developments.
I’ve been especially hacked off at 10.5 server which dispite having some of the finest administrative tools in the business has so many bugs that I really can’t recommend it over a standard linux server unless your company really DOESN’T have any IT knowledgeable staff.
It is without doubt the buggiest ¥40,000 I’ve ever spent.
Here’s looking at 10.5.6 server… (sigh)…
