  2. 9a527 is here

    Ive got a stupid question, and probably in the wrong place, but am hoping someone can help me out: Been d/ling the torrent, i've downloaded 2.2 gigs of 6.44 gigs (or there abouts) and it says its over 90% done, which i dont understand....Is the torrent fubared? Am I gonna have to start over? I am using azaureus. Any help would be appreciated. And once again i apologise for the location and contex of the post. Thx.
  3. 9a527 is here

    mini has it, demon has it. Others coming up fast afaik.
  4. 9a500n Problems

    There are some more serious problems in 500 imho. For examples i used 466 since it was "released" and used it quiet stably as my main OS. Now I upgraded (fresh install) to 500 and all of a sudden I get frequent kernel panics off of the airport driver....;( Not good. Working on 527 now, hopefully that's fixed.
  5. 9a527 is here

    Hi all! Now that 527 is here, and widely available, (i say that because now i can get it, and I am a n00b at this stuff ) can we get some more informed opinions on how it looks/feels, stability, and can it be used as a main OS.
  6. Leo Updates?

    Has anyone downloaded and installed the superdrive frimware update that poped up today on software uopdate? I downloaded it but it wont let me install it. Another thing....do we believe apple will release updates for 9466 that will be dowloadable via software update? Or is it a case of seed and download again? Thanks.
  7. 9A466 App Compatibility

    Hi Can someone that has CS3 explain to me how they got it to work? I had to install it, then boot the mac in disk target mode, then hook it in via firewire to my other macbook running tiger, then run the patcher, and patch CS3 files one by one remotely. Is there another way? They work very slowly for me (shouldnt normally) and indesign doesnt work at all. It gives me an error on startup. Any ideeas would be appreciated. Thx.
  8. Installing Leopard

    Ok i have a 400gig usb2 external drive. I was going to partition the drive into 2 , restore leo with diskutil on one, and install on the other. The computer will not boot from usb, (macbookpro core duo), and if i try to run the install from within tiger it tells me "the application installmacosx cannot be used from this volume". To install mac osx please use the application provided on the maxosx installation disk ((( Can anyone help?

  10. I am just prepping to install Leo as my main OS and I have tons of programs installed currently working fine. I am a bit of a mac n00b (used to be a pc fan before the intel switchover). So I want to backup all my stuff to an external hard drive, wipe clean, install leo. Whats the best way to backup already installed programs on mac? Can i just drag the whole program onto my external hard drive inside tiger and then drag it back out in leopard and all should work? or is it like in windows where the only way to have a program working is to have a clean install? Is there any other way of backing up existing programs that you dont have the install files for? For example world of warcraft. I dont want to have to delete it, and then have to torrent download it again and reinstall. Please help. Thanks.
  11. Leopard Application Compatibility(3rd Party)

    Hi all, Can anyone post some screenshots? Thanks.
  12. The new big cat

    Hya all! So i am assuming people are downloading cat related software from different places. Now the question is can anyone actually confirm: 1. Yes I have downloaded the whole thing 2. Yes I have now installed it 3. Yes its the real deal 4. Any comments on impressions? Can we keep this thread along this line of thought, rather than saying that you are at 82.3% and incoming at 37Kbps. Lets keep it constructive pls. Thanks.
