Ah excellent installed the update and once again I get the "you are infected with a trojan" nonsense when I try to connect to Quakenet IRC. That will be another 3 days of messing around trying to get it to work then all of a sudden it will. Crying or Very sad

10.4.4 seems to have broken compatibility with TransparentDock. I'm using TD 2.3.5, and it will no longer apply changes. Tried resetting the dock, no luck.

10.4.4 also causes you to have to reinstall front row on my "non-supported" macs. once i reinstall the application all works perfect just as it did before.

Installation went perfectly. Lots of new Dashboard widgets to ignore.

I installed 10.4.4 last night. My mini seems fine. However, my PowerMac would not wake from sleep this morning. I had to hit the power button. I don't have any third party cards or upgrades in the machine other than a Hitachi SATA drive in bay B. I hope that it was a one time fluke only.

Did you delete Front Row before doing the upgrade? I'm not having any trouble with movies or music. Try repairing the disk permissions.

So far so good with me. I upgraded my Mac Mini, a iBook, iMac, and I can't see any adverse problems so far. This is good.

Has anyone noticed how fast Safari is after updating? The pages are loading almost instantly.

I have to agree . . . I installed 10.4.4 on my mini and my G4 Powerbook, and both are running flawlessly. In fact, I've yet to have a problem with OS updates on any Mac but I also go through a more thorough routine than most users should *expect* to go through. Regardless, I was using Firefox more regularly as it was "faster" most of the time, but all of a sudden Safari is screaming, and almost never hangs when hitting a URL. Nice work, Apple.

Open Disk Utility. Choose your boot drive, and click "Repair permissions". Don't bother to verify them first--not necessary.
