Preview still crashes.


Mine still crashes after doing color adjustments on a picture and trying to save, but that is the only time. I think this is because Leopard doesn't like the metadata they use. It could also have something to do with the GMA 950. The slowness that I was talking about seems to have been fixed with a simple restart. I'm starting to feel a bit like a beta tester here. I know people are saying Leopard feels rushed, but Apple had a lot of time to work on this. Neutral

My update went fine. No major problems to report.

I can make color adjustments to a picture and save it without issue. But once the picture is saved, Preview will not let me make another adjustment and save it again without crashing. It will let me make changes to the size though. I didn't notice this before.

I was unable to use my Tiger clone for some reason with 10.5.0. It wouldn't even show up in Startup Disk. I tried just about everything under the sun to get it working, but never got it going. Guess what? It works perfectly with 10.5.1. I guess that's good enough for me at this point.

That worked on both a G4 and Core2 Duo. But, on the latter it went through the preview "movie" and registration process again after the update.

Repairing permissions is the biggest placebo task in all of OS X. It will harm things more than it fixes them.

Why so many mac people do it is beyond my understanding.

My 10.5.1 experience is fine so far BTW..

It's helped me a few times in the past, but I wouldn't consider it something that needs to be done all the time.

All good with 10.5.1 here! Smile

Placebo perhaps, but harm more things? Do you have any evidence of this?

So when is 10.5.2 coming? Wink


I was interested in finding out how long it took Tiger to move to 10.4.2. It took almost two months. 10.4.1 came out on May 16th, 2005 and 10.4.2 on July 12th, 2005. That doesn't mean it will be the same this time around, but I was just interested. I wonder what the average time between all of the Tiger updates was? Does anyone know that one off hand? I'm not that ambitious to do the math. Laughing

It won't really harm anything at the OS level. It can harm app installs that modify things in the kernel to run properly. Once you repair permissions it can often change things back to the way it was before you installed it rendering the app either useless or not fully functional.

The best thing people can do to their mac is leave it alone and let the magic of Unix take care of all the maintenance itself.

I've just setup my new MacBook for the first time. After the setup process was over, I was left with the Leopard desktop (i.e. nothing running other than background processes) but the internal fan kept going faster and faster. I sparked up Activity Monitor and a process called "mds" was eating up big chunks of ram and using as much as 44% of processor capacity.

I called the Apple dealer and he recommended installing the 10.5.1 update. I've done so, and now (touch wood) everything is as it should be - about 3% load on the CPU and 56% of memory free. Phew! Rolling Eyes
