OS X 10.2.8 reposted

OS X 10.2.8 has been reposted and has had the bugs worked out, apparently. Also, it would seem to add support for DVD+R/W.

Among the enhancements:
  • The computer will now wake from sleep if both an AirPort Extreme card and some kinds of PCI cards are installed.
  • iChat works better on AirPort networks.
  • Adds support for these third-party disc burners:
    Logitech Corp. LCW-E48F 48x24x48x,
    MCE Lucid-SD DVD-R/RW Drive,
    Formac Devideon FWD1496-3DVD-R 4x,
    TDK DVD+/-R/RW Drive - DED+440,
    LaCie d2 CD-RW FireWire 52x32x52x
  • Bluetooth devices are now available after the computer wakes from sleep.
  • Some FireWire devices will work better if you connect them after disconnecting certain kinds of digital cameras.
  • Keyspan Twin Serial adapters work better when connected to a USB 2.0 hub.
  • FireWire devices, including iPod, are now available when the computer wakes from sleep.
  • Prevents a kernel panic from happening if you start Classic with more than 2 GB of RAM installed.
  • Improves stability when using the "Return to command state" modem string command (;) with an Apple Internal USB Modem (v.92).
  • The Apple Internal USB Modem maintains better connections to some kinds of v.34 modems.
  • Includes updated security services and the latest Security Updates.

If you previously installed 10.2.8, update will show a very small patch to download to fix battery time problem and ethernet problem.

Does the support for DVD+R/W apply to superdrives in powerbooks? And is it only for DVD+R/W?

I'm pretty sure it only supports the drives themselves, and those drives can burn whatever media is compatible with them. The stuff in Powerbooks is all DVD-R I believe.

You're right. I just learned that there's a way of tricking other drives to write to R/W media, but not powerbooks. I was hoping that might change with this upgrade. Thanks for the info.

FCP 4.0.1 is good and is needed as for 10.2.8 either one is iffy as they still have bugs on the user end. It mostly comes down to the way you have the computer configured.
