The combo download is taking forever. I started it about 30 minutes ago so expected it to have finished ages ago. Just gone to switch off for the night and noticed the download still has 38 minutes left and the time is going up 40 minutes now Shocked One for another day I think.


I had 300MB done when I stopped it, just restarted it and it said it was going to take 8 hours Laughing

Excellent! It has basically been usable for me to this point in Snow Leopard.

Mine took like 10 minutes, but it was only 157MB. Everything seems to be working fine to this point.

I had that problem with safari with the distortion in top sites. I reported that to apple a few times I thought I had a virus or something. I haven't noticed the problem since I upped my RAM though. Front row is working like a champ! That was extremely slaggy before and unusable for me. Now it's a useful feature again. Hopefully the wifi is solid again, and sleep issues are figured out. Time will tell but I am very glad for this update.

I installed on my 2009 mac mini. The mini is hooked up with to my Samsung HDTV.

After install I remotely connect to the MINI and it says, cannot connect because sharing is turned off. When I turn the monitor on, it is a spinning wheel at the bottom and the screen is blue. I can remotely see the folders but not remotely login. WHAT SHOULD I DO 10.6.2 not working for me....

So far sleep seems to be ok, but it could of been a problem I fixed prior to the update. I noticed I had istat trying to do something about every ten minutes in console ( I deleted the .plist in launchagents). I woke it from sleep and then I had no airport and it wouldn't let me connect, and my bluetooth keyboard went on the fritz again. Almost feeling like the pc days again. I did a restart and everything is tip top. Hopefully it stays that way.

I've been hanging on "writing files" in the installer for the last 20 minutes. I'm not sure what to do now. Crying or Very sad

Two problems for me.

1. Mail wouldn't open at first. Had to trash com.apple.mail.plist to get it working again.

2. Apple remote doesn't work with Hulu Desktop anymore. Even with Candelair installed.
