What, are they afraid to call it OSX 10.6.9?? It would be the best named OS of all time. Colbert would have a blast asking if people had '6.9 their computer.
Great! The AppStore is just what we need for the ten Mac OS X Server machines we have here at work. Ehh, wait... :)
10H575 is still the newest. This update is 10H575. The one from Nov. 10 that was pulled is 10H574.
Yep, that's what it says here:
"Mac OS X Server v10.6.5 (build 10H575), released on November 15, 2010, includes security content described in this article. If you installed Mac OS X Server v10.6.5 (build 10H574), released on November 10, 2010, you should reinstall the Mac OS X Server v10.6.5 Update.
"Important: If you downloaded the standalone installer of Mac OS X Server v10.6.5 (build 10H574) prior to November 15, 2010, do not install it on a system running Mac OS X Server v10.6.5 (build 10H575), as that would revert the server to build 10H574.
"You can tell which build of Mac OS X Server v10.6.5 you are running by choosing About this Mac from the Apple menu. Click the word "Version" in the About This Mac window to see the build number. If you are running Mac OS X Server build 10H574, use Software Update or the Mac OS X Server v10.6.5 Update standalone installer to update to build 10H575."
It looks like Apple have removed the update from their servers.
"If you don't see the Mac OS X v10.6.3 Supplemental Update in Software Update, you don't need to install it."
The worlds most advanced operating system, patched very quickly ;-)
This update gave my computer all kinds of BUGS, including a bug that Apple had never
had to deal with before. Tech Support agreed with me that the beast thing to do was to
use timemachine to return the sustem to its preupdate state, and then apply the combo update (Doing repairs at every stage of the fix). This seemed to fix everything except that my Logitech Wireless laser mouse goes crazy every day, and I have to use the power button
to shut down my computer and reboot it.
The 10.4.9 Server update has seemed to kill our email services.
it appears that it has damaged the Pearl core in some way.
We are not able to send or receive ANY mail.
WAIT FOR NEWER UPDATE!!!
"The folks at Unsanity may finally have unravelled the mystery of randomly-disastrous Apple software updates:
Shock and Awe: How Installing Apple's Updates can Render Your Mac Unbootable and How You Can Prevent it
... When you see the "Optimizing System Performance" phase of a software update, Mac OS X is really updating prebinding. Updating prebinding has a very, very nasty bug in it (look at _dyld_update_prebinding). If multiple processes are updating prebinding at the same time, then it is possible for a system file to be completely zero'd out. Basically, all data in the file is deleted and it is replaced with nothing. This bug is usually triggered when updating Mac OS X and every update to Mac OS X has the potential to render your system unbootable depending on if the "right" file is deleted or not. It's triggered during the "Optimizing System Performance" phase of installing an update. This phase is actually just running update_prebinding. If you launch an application that links to libraries that are not yet prebound, there is a chance one of those files will be zero'd out as dyld automatically redoes the prebinding on that file.
I've been tracking this particular bug for about 18 months now. Most of the real "random" failures reported on various Mac OS X "troubleshooting" sites after a user has installed an Apple software update are actually manifestations of this bug. By real I mean not imagined problems or ones that have been there for a very long time but the user is just now noticing it and artificially connecting the cause to the recent update (it's called Pareidolia). Yes, this nasty prebinding bug has been reported to Apple and yes, it is 100% reproducible if you want to reproduce it.
Every single time you install an update to Mac OS X whether it be an iTunes update, a QuickTime update, an update for daylight saving time, a security update, an Airport update, or an actual Mac OS X update, you can be hit by this bug. In order to prevent yourself from being smacked in the face by this bug, follow this simple rule: When "Optimize System Performance" appears during the update process do not touch your computer and definitely do not launch any applications. Just back away from your computer box as if it were a swarm of bees. Yes, it does mean that if you install the Mac OS X 10.4.9 update, you may get hit by the bug."
After installing the update, my cheapo printer stopped working, my wife left me, and I had *two* heart attacks.
Seriously though, I've had no problems at all with the update. I didn't even bother with the superstitious "repair file permissions before and after" mumbo-jumbo. Another solid patch for my powerbook.
