I had the same problem with a new install, even after running the combo updater!!!
Promptly did a restore to 10.7.4 and everything is OK.

STAY AWAY from this update.

Too many bugs from Apple last years.
Time Machine Backup now working, but before that i cloned my drive by third-side app.
Where the "Internet Sharing" function? In Snow Leo I just connected my laptop by cable to Mac Pro, and go surfing web, why in next release of super OS it's just doesn't work? For > one year! Quality degrading?

A few weeks ago I took my main computer directly from Snow Leopard to Lion (yes, I am a slow adapter), and saw the same glacial performance from Spotlight indexing and Time Machine copying as has been reported on various forums.

This update seems to have fixed those issues. A fresh Time Machine copy (≈700 GB) is down to a couple of hours instead of several weeks.

Upgrading to 10.7.5 was, well, problematic; including spotlight re-indeeeeeeeeeeeeexing and time machine slooooooooooow down. In addition, the gain included gatekeeper which was, for me, unnecessary. Another problem with the upgrade I lost the iTunes pop up song notification whcih I kind of like. I may wait for 10.7.8 let all the bugs be worked out then upgrade---well---I probably upgrade the clone first.

Unbelievable. This is what this really means (from Apple)..

Well, we screwed up big time with the 10.7.5 update, and we have known about this for a few weeks. However we didn't have the integrity to admit it even though there were tons of discussions about this all over the web and on our own discussion boards. (However if you called us and got a level-2 tech on the phone, they would admit to you off-the-record that Apple was aware of this problem).

So instead of being forthright about this and saying "we really screwed up here", and calling 10.7.5 dead in the water, and releasing a point update to 10.7.6 (which is the RIGHT way to handle SW CM), instead we are copping out and releasing ... uh ... something we are sort of calling "" or whatever.

SW QA at Apple is getting worse and worse. I wish that who ever runs Mac OS software development would say "Hey, instead of taking the time to implement like 200 new "features" into another major release, we just took six months and actually worked to fix a bunch of bugs!

I don't need FaceBook integrated with my OS, nor do I need new "features" that make my Mac act like a phone! I need an OS update that doesn't break my system and make me waste about 18 hours time over the past 2 weeks ( >3 of those hours working on the phone with Apple ).

Can you tell I'm pi$$ed? LOL

So you're mad that called it a supplemental update, and not 10.7.6? Because that makes sense, I guess?


Thanks, David29, couldn't have said it better. The Time Machine mess was astounding - an hour at one point for 400 MB. I didn't call support on this, but have run into the same problem you describe with Apple in the past with other software issues - discussion all over the web and TS asks, Have you repaired permissions? Since I exist as a human and don't require, want, need or go anywhere near Facebook, I also liked your remark regarding Apple's friendly attitude toward that creepy outfit. Yeah, I can tell you're pi$$ed, but it's really NLM (as in 2nd def of urban dict).


I must agree that software QA at Apple is getting worse. I also believe that hubris at Apple is getting worse, evidenced by its foisting of "features" on us that are neither useful nor needed (reverse scrolling, Gatekeeper, the whole iOS maps mess). It appears that the post Jobs decay has begun.
