My mistake, I didn't remember correctly. It was the Security Update to SL, not the delta to Lion.

Snow Leopard is 10.6

Are we discussing entirely different updates?

I only brought it up because Rosetta and PPC were mentioned. The security update for Snow Leopard, which was also released yesterday, includes the same content bundled in the 10.7.3 update. It's not the same, but perhaps some of the issues are related. Sorry for the confusion.

That's okay Fox. Sometimes I wish that you could though. Because there are days where I miss the simplicity and look of MS Office 2004 for Mac.

Good to know. I didn't realize they were both released.

Sucks that SL got messed up.

Hopefully another quick update for SL comes out.

These have been kind of disastrous updates for Apple. CUI errors with 10.7.3 and Rosetta issues the security update for Snow Leopard. Dang, I wouldn't be surprised to see them release a 10.6.9 update now for Snow Leopard. Unless they are saying that Rosetta has become a security risk. Rolling Eyes

No troubles with 10.7.3 here. I just upgraded from Snow Leopard and everything is working great. Funny thing though. I had finally given up on Power PC-based apps with the purchase of Photoshop Elements 10 and Microsoft Office for Mac 2011.

Apple will now drop support for SL. This final update messes up your system and forces you into Lion Smile It's all part of the master plan.

I'm sure Apple will take care of it. What really sucks about the SL mishap is the people choosing to remain with SL are doing so for 2 reasons, stability and the ability to run non intel based software. This update threw a wrench into both.

The other thing that really sucks is people are understandably reluctant to update to new OSs or even early revisions of OSs (like 10.7.3) as they often introduce new issues.
If I were running 10.6.8 I would have had absolutely no hesitation to download a security update.
Normally when I do an OS update, I clone my hard drive before the update, so I can easily go back to the old version if needed. I also wait a few days and see if others are experiencing issues. With a security update, I dont bother. I guess I'll be cloning before security updates for now on as well.

This is a bit of a shocker.

Just wait until they hit the master switch that kills all of our Macs. The Apple Store is going to be packed that weekend. Laughing

I agree with you on the updates. Issues or bugs with 10.7.3 can always be fixed in 10.7.4. A security update, on the other hand, should be safe and less worrisome. It should not throw a wrench into system stability and functionality. I hate to say it, but Apple seriously failed the bar on this one.

Thanks, but no thanks. I'd rather have my system compromised. Razz

Interesting, I just attempted a software update from 10.7.2 to 10.7.3 and the Apple Software Updater only indicates an update available for iTunes and Keynote. Apple may have pulled the 10.7.3 update for the time being.

No problems to report here with the 10.7.3 update. I'm saddened to hear about the security update for Snow Leopard issues though. Apple definitely needs to do a better job going forward. And, come out with a quick fix for those not able to use Rosetta now.

It is working for me now. I'm not sure why it didn't appear as an option to download, earlier this evening.

Apple has now pulled the Mac OS X Lion 10.7.3 Delta update in favor of the Combo update to address crashing and CUI errors.

It didn't work for me either, but now I'm being prompted for the combo updater. I'm going to hold off though. The previous 10.7.2 release seems stable enough for me.

I used to enjoy software updates like this and looked forward to them as they usually brought improvements or new goodies. Now they make me nervous and I ponder whether or not to install. This one seemed to go ok, no problems or improvements noticed yet.
