Hi Alessandro17,

currently I am running that update, it's marvellous. Beware though to download the IOUSB patch from Apple, otherwise after restart, the USB keyb and mouse will not work, only PS2 ones!!!

no, you don't really need the update. if everything is working to your satisfaction enjoy 10.4.8. once you feel comfortable backing up your system and restoring, then you can experiment with 10.4.9 - nothing gained by upgrading.

I followed this 10.4.9 update procedure-

http://forum.insanel...o...c=45283&hl=

It worked great- and a quick procedure! Just make sure to backup the specified files, and before restarting restore them! Loginwindow.app had to be backed up and restored as well after restart. You can then run the April 2007 Security Update through Apple.

System - Dell 4600 - Intel SSE2

:police: Thanks everyone! :thumbsup_anim:

Thank you ...Thats what I really needed to know.

I'm hoping 10.5 will be a bit easier to update to.. :hysterical:

Hi,
I installed a couple of month ago mac x86 v. 10.4.1 (I don't remember the right number, maybe the 10.4.2 - I think it is the first release of mac x86) on my Dell M90 (Intel Centrino Duo 2 - nvidia quadro fx2500). As with this version many devices don't work (ethernet card, wireless, usb, and video is poor) I was guessing if installing the last version could help me. Anyway I want to ask to forum's friends if there is an update patch to install or if I have to install the new version over the older one. Can someone also give me a link to download the patch or the 10.4.9 version?

Another question: I wish to install this version also on a workstation with 2 AMD Opteron 290, a 3DLabs Wildcat Realizm video card and SCSI disks (the controller is an LSI built in the Tyan S2895 mobo). Does anyone know if I will find the drivers for all these devices? Can I eventually use the same release of the one I will use for my laptop (with an Intel cpu) or should I look for an AMD version?

Thank you very much!

I would recommend that you install 10.4.8 from scratch to avoid complications. Yes, the newer versions is ages ahead of 10.4.2.

Can someone also give me a link to download the patch or the 10.4.9 version?

No links allowed in this forum. Search the bay of pirates or the little green demon.

Feel free to use the search functions and look into the hardware compatibility list:
http://wiki.osx86project.org (the lists are right in the front page for each OSX version).

I recommend tubgirl's release for AMD PCs and JaS for Intel based machines.

Thank you very much!

I tend to disagree with that as I am using JaS's installDVD on my AMD with no problems.
anyway thats my 2 cents

yeah... but aren't you running 10.4.8 (thats what sig says). This thread is only in regards to 10.4.9

If you are running JaS 10.4.9 on your AMD as described in specs I'd really love to hear more details on this, as I have a very similar setup (see my sig for my specs)...

Same here. JaS on both an SSE2 AMD and on a SSE3 Opteron.
Both updated using Myzars update to 10.4.9

Andy,
There is currently a release on the green demon from Uphuck. I would be very wary of this though as no one has completed the download yet so no one has really tested it yet. At current seed speeds it will probably be another 4 or 5 days before we start hearing reports back on this one.

That is a question you will have to ask JaS. Unfortunately I am not active on IRC, so not privy to all that latest and greatest stuff.

Just installed uphuck release on my Opteron 170, all seems well.

I chatted with JaS some time ago and he seem to suggest a 10.4.9 release was coming and offered to add some kexts I sent him, but that was a while ago and that could have changed.

Edit: Going to try to make a PPF to add the ViaRhine network driver to upchuck DVD.
