I updated my Powerbook G4 1GHz. Have been working on a project with FCP 4.0.2 for a couple of hours with no problems. (A reasonably complex project with 12 sequences, 6 nested master sequences, approx. 60 clips.)

Repair permissions as often as you want. It can run in the background while you do other work. If you notice any strange behavior form your machine or software, repair permissions should be your first remedy (along with fsck -y). I generally repair permissions after installing software.

<grin>
It does sound nasty, doesn't it?

Actually "fsck" is a Unix command. As with so many such commands, it's an acronymn -- in this case for "File System Check". The "-y" argument tells the fsck utility to assume a Yes response to any user verification requests it might issue during operation.

"fsck" is a relatively universal command-line utiity to diagnose and repair problems.

Yes there were issues. Apparently it would decrease the battery life of powerbooks by an hour (or report to atleast). It also would install a broken ethernet dealy so people with older G4s (450s I think) can't use it anymore without getting a replacement ethernet.kext thing.

Ted, no insult intended. At start up, hold down the Apple>Option>S>keys and you will go into single user mode. At the prompt (takes 20 to 60 seconds, usually) type>fsck -y. Include the space between k and -. If it reports a problem, type the command again. Repeat the process until it say HD OK or something similar. Once it reports OK, type>reboot This will restart the computer as usual. If after 8 to 10 attempts you still get a problem notification, type reboot and use DiskWarrior to repair the disk.

OS X 10.2.8

I down loaded the update yesterday.

I can't say that there has been any inprovement in Safari. It still craps out at unexpected times.

Too bad. I used the bug report to inform Apple of this problem several months ago.

Fourtunately, you don't need Safari to edit.

A heads up for any of you who might be using MOTU 828 or other MOTU devices:

After upgrading to 10.2.8 my G4 refused to boot. Unplugging the firewire connection to the device solved the problem. Go to the MOTU web site and download the current driver for these devices. It solves the problem completely so that the 828 is useable.

I've heard that Safari has several improvements in 10.3 and probably won't be updated (significantly) until then.
