    I'm just wondering: it's been nearly two years now since this update and there's still a lot of people using 10.6, Apple continues to provide updates (actually a whole lot of them, security updates, java, etc.). Well I frankly don't believe Apple will do it, but it would be nice to have a final 10.6.9, for summing all those little updates, for archive's sake. I keep those for every system since 10.4 just in case my old machines need reinstalling, and I would have appreciated the same for 10.4 and 10.5, even if it's rarely needed, but that way I could throw away useless old updates.

    I installed the Supplemental update without installing the Combo Update first because I was getting some kind of error. Now, after restarting my sound doesn't work. Any help?

    Installing the 10.6.8 V1.1 Combo updater will overwrite Safari 5.1 if you have already installed it, and replace it with 5.0.5 or .6. Just reinstall Safari 5.1, or skip the Combo thing altogether and do the Supplemental update. FYI.

    I have repeatedly downloaded the 10.6.8 v1.1 combo update and I can never open the resulting .dmg file. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone have an alternate download link? I tried apple uk, but could not find a suitable link.

    I installed this update through Software Update. The size of the file was 1/10th of what is being downloaded here. It was quick without any problems. Some people have stated that the About This Mac window notates the supplemental update. My window still says OS 10.6.8

    After installing the Combo updater, rebooting wouldn't make it to the logon screen, the MBP 2011 13in just shut down. Replacing the mach_kernel file with the 10.6.7 version from my emergency back-up restored everything to normal. I experienced the same issue after applying the MBP Software Update 1.4 which installed a newer version of the mach kernel, turned out the new Combo updater has the same newer version of that file. You need to make the mach-kernel (to be found at your main volumes root level) visible first before being able to replace it.

    Upgraded a couple days ago. Only glitch I've seen was with an old Xerox printer driver. Still the rock solid SL I'm used to. Currently working up courage to upgrade my main computer to Lion, which has also worked fairly well so far on my old MacBook. If you're having lots of weird bugs, I highly suggest doing a fresh system install, running software update until everything is curent, and then migrating your user files back from your time machine.

    great to see SL is still supported just in process of migrating back to SL from Lion which is not usable for me and probably one of the worst releases apple had in a long time

    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.

    Safe boot then Combo 10.6.8 and now Safari 5.0.4 is being loaded with Cookies from visited sites and stranger still non-visited sites dispite having Safari set to "never allow" any cookies! Tried updating to Safari 5.1 and it seem worst. Clean install then Combo 10.6.7, Safari 5.0.4 and all is back to normal! Go figure! Surprised that Apple pulled an Adobe or Microsloth with this need to track information…I'm open for payment if they want to negotiate my fees to provide this service! :-) Smell of a hugh security breach, need to force Lion on us or I did something stupid…however, it's reproducible by updating to 10.6.8.

    The update went through fine for me, but ever since upgrading the locationd process has been going crazy - way too many internet access attempts. Running Little Snitch I can see that it tries (unsuccessfully, I might add) to determine my location every 10 seconds (5 of which is rest and 5 of which is network activity). Last night I accidentally fell asleep with the AirPort still connected, and despite having no applications running and no viruses, managed to rack up 112MB of network activity in 7 hours! I have a usage cap on my service, so I don't want the computer wasting resources this way. Unfortunately I need location services for some of my apps (though they're pretty useless right now because Skyhook keeps reporting my location incorrectly). Anybody else having this problem? Any idea how to fix it?

    STILL NO FIX for smb network connection problems. Performance very poor after this installation. Slow login time. Constantly spinning beachballs when opening files & printing. Since Tiger, every major upgrade of the OS has been a major disappointment. Performance gets worse and worse, while Windows OS products have gotten continually better. I do not recommend installing this update -- it has made my workstation at work almost intolerable.

    WARNING!!! MAJOR problems with this update. Lots of bugs reported on the Apple Forum with people losing data and not even being able to boot their Macs (even new Macs). This is not alarmist mumbo-jumbo... read all of the posts over on the Apple forum BEFORE you decide on installing this. I was not even able to wake my less than a year old 27" iMac from sleep after it had been sleeping for several hours. I'm going back to 10.6.7 (thankfully I have two full backups of 10.6.7) which ran extremely well.

    OK after a few days we found there are indeed some printing issues ("breaks" some drivers) but that's more a matter of vendors being ahead of the curve and updating their drivers. On a positive note, this update resolved an issue with some third party USB drives that were previously causing panic on reboot. Don

    No problems here in the UK with the update though Software Update. I do think it is a bug fix for 10.6.7, though. Very wary of Mac App Store 'enhancement'.

    If you have Xerox DocuColor 242/252/260 printers then do not install 10.6.8 yet. The update will kill printing to these printers. Other Xerox printers are also affected. http://forum.support.xerox.com/t5/Printing/Mac-OS-10-6-8-Update-Problems-with-Fiery-Driver/m-p/5668 https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3137602 The 10.6.8 combo fix doesn´t work for the 242/252260 series either. Apart from this 10.6.8 seems fairly nice. However, printing is still of some importance..
