Great! With so many computers, the chances of getting something wrong were high, IF there was anything that could go wrong.
I'll try my update tonight, will post about it in a couple of hours. If you don't hear from me, pray for my beloved Mac...

No good. The update didn't complete the first time or the second. By the third it started saying 10.4.3 at the system info, and Safari stopped working (so as you can guess I'm working from MS IE...).
Any ideas? I was trying the normal update, 97megs according to the Apple page. Now I'll try the combo.
Wish me luck!

The combo update is often the best way to go...
Don't forget to repair permissions afterwards....

There are three types of update:

minimal diff - this is a minimal version of the regular diff update. It appears to only work if you haven't skipped a revision of any of the software components.*

regular diff - this is an architecture-dependent update (the file you download for a Mac mini won't work correctly on a Powerbook, for instance).

combo - this is a generic update. You can download this once from Apple then apply it to every Mac you have (it contains all the different architecture-dependent changes, making this update the only one that is architecture independent).


* For instance, if you leave it 3 months before running the software update, your Quicktime version might jump straight from 7.0.0 to 7.0.3. But by running software update every week (twice a week, whatever) you'll get every update as it is released, never skipping a version.

Yes. Minimal is smaller than regular, which is smaller than combo. The software update tool scans your system (or a log file/dir, not sure which) and determines the smallest update that is suitable for your system. I *think* that combo is only available as a manual download.

Thanks for the advice, RobF. And thanks for the explain, Kuro.
Just to let you know my upgrade it was a disaster. Glad I did my backup (thank Picaman for the reco)...
I'm working from Panther, it is quite cool; I never got to enjoy the upgrade to Tiger, I bought my Mac mini the day after Tiger was released. Anyway, will upgrade to 10.4 in a couple of days, I first want to explore a bit. Wink
Have a nice day!

P.D.: Kuro, does your nick has anything to do with the color black?
