No need to wait. I've actually had that problem before and repairing the disk permissions was the key to letting me continue.

That did the trick for me. Thanks!

My update was only 286MB in Software Update, but it wouldn't finish.

I got this message instead.



Have any of you guys seen that one before? Surprised


All went well on my Mac Mini, but my iMac got this.

I just closed the installer, restarted it, had it look for updates again, and after that it downloaded ok and installed perfectly.

As with TonyMontana's post on Tuesday updates, perhaps Apple is trying to be like Microsoft? ...Tueday is there day if I'm not mistaken Smile

I tried repairing the disk permissions and got a rather large list of Front Row, iTunes and iPhoto repairs, but no dice on getting past that message. Crying or Very sad

No problems updating the Mac mini, but I'm getting the same digital signature warning on my MacBook Pro. It looks like Apple messed up somewhere here.

Well this is unexpected-- the 10.5.7 update fixed my missing Windows folder icon under the Startup Disk Preferences.

Previously, I had to use Boot Champ to boot to my Windows 7 partition.

Yeah, it appears to be working with Windows 7 now. I totally forgot about that missing until you brought it up.

Aqua did you try the Combo update direct from Apple? I usually bypass the software update app and go direct to the source on these larger upgrades.

I just started to download the monster (make that Combo). I just hate when you can't get something working like it should. It makes you think something else is wrong.

Aqua, did you resolve this? It seems that this update is not playing well with external USB devices in some cases. The Apple and MacRumor boards are littered with people having problems with this update. Try unplugging all external USB devices except the keyboard and mouse and installing the combo directly from Apple. Skip the Software Update app.

The "repair permissions" after this update seems to have a crap ton of "frontrow " messages in it for some reason.

Worked fine with my G4 Mac mini and G5 iMac through Software Update. The new Mac mini (2009), on the other hand, won't update. I'm going to try the Combo later today.

I noticed the same thing. I have differs up the wazoo with Front Row and iPhoto that don't seem to get repaired.

It's weird huh? I'm not too worried about it until I have problems. I thought it was alarming watching it scroll by.

I upgraded a G4 mini, an Intel mini, a G4 Cube and an Intel iMac last night and this morning with a combo updater. (I never use Software Update to install a system update.) All went well, other than the G4 mini needing a hard shut off and restart. I just checked the disk permissions on my iMac and got much the same as TonyMontana and aquaman reported.

I don't notice any performance differences since the update, but I read two accounts of improved xbench scores after the update (including philiparcario's on this site).

I might just be lucky, but everything seems to be working fine for me. I was worried at first though. I couldn't get my EyeTV 250+ tuner working. Then I realized that I forgot to plug it back in the other day. Rolling Eyes

I was able to update to 10.5.7 with Software Update, but now my Software Update button is grayed out in About This Mac. Is that the definition of ironic or what? If anyone hears of a fix, please let me know.
