Monolingual takes away the pain, only takes a few seconds to completely purge all unwanted lang packs.

Well the update hasn't hurt anything.....but that was the longest it has ever took to download anything on my mini.

Sometimes wish this mac would crash, or screw up or break, so I can get a newer one and upgrade my OS , but "Oh Well".

Our mini had two kernel panic crashes on the day before the update came out, our first ones since converting to OSX. After the update everything seems to be running smooth again.

I'm not sure if it's a coincidence or not.

So, who's going to tell us?: does Safari seem snappier or not? Smile

Safari actually feels slower to me. I also had SU crash on me tonight while while trying to grab the iTunes update. I don't think 10.6.3 and me are off to a good start.


devo, are you using an Airport Extreme? This update, and another reset, seems to have fixed things for me (for the most part):

I'm having wireless issues as well. It's taking forever on a restart to find my preferred network. It just sits there for like two or three minutes before connecting. I've tried restarting my router and repairing the permissions, but neither thing has helped. My list of repairs was insanely long too. Most of them were centered around wireless and/or Airport. Anyone else run a repair?

I prefer a little more control than Monolingual gives me. I wish someone would update Youpi Optimizer.

I am, but it's the older model without dual bands. I went in and deleted all my preferred networks and then repaired the disk permissions. It seems to be back to normal now. I did have a super long list of repairs like Aquaman stated having.
