    buggy 2.0

    I've been playing with my iPhone 3G with 2.0 (5A345) for almost a week, with lots of different apps, and have only experienced 1 crash with Monkey Ball: after I installed it, I couldn't start it, it would crash immediately, but after a restart of the iPhone everything was o.k.

    Leopard with G4 chips?

    On my 800Mhz iMac G4 there is one problem: the screen stays black after the iMac went into sleep. This is likely an issue with the NVIDIA GeForce4 MX chipset. Any Leopard user with GeForce4 MX that can confirm that sleep doesn't function?

    iTunes Gift Card anybody?

    Recently I bought a software-package online, and received a $10 iTunes Gift Card with it! Which is great, the only thing is: I live in The Netherlands and the Gift Card can only be used in the U.S. store... Anybody who uses the iTunes U.S. store that I can make happy with the code? The first one to respond gets the code!

    Leopard networking with PC's

    Weird, I didn't do a thing, and now suddenly all Microsoft PC's are showing up in the sidebar: I also found some remarks on other forums that this is not working perfectly at all times...

    Leopard networking with PC's

    It's strange, two of my pc's show up automatically in the sidebar, and the third doesn't, I have to connect using the steps I described...

    Leopard networking with PC's

    Try this: From the Finder: - Go / Connect to server (apple-k) - Server Address: smb://<name of your windows-pc> - connect Make sure there is no firewall on your Windows-machine blocking things

    Leopard On a 733MHz Powermac G4

    The installer will refuse to install, but there is a workaround for that. Anyway, I wouldn't recommend it with only 512 MB

    Leopard with G4 chips?

    For fun, I installed Leopard on my 17'' iMac G4 800 MHz. Though not superfast, it runs acceptable, browsing, mailing, watching DVD's can be done without problems...

    My Leopard Menu Bar Isn't Transparent -- Whoo!

    It has to do with the hardware, on my 2.8Ghz Intel iMac the bar is transparant, on my 1.25Ghz G4 Mac Mini the menubar is solid, both are fresh installs with the same (default) background

    My first Tiger -> Leopard upgrade show-stopper

    Well, I don't regret the fresh install, I was afraid it would be a lot of work, but it wasn't bad at all! Basically, after the fresh install I simply did the following: - drag the iPhoto library (138 GB!) and iTunes library folders from my 10.4 backup to my freshly installed iMac - with Migration Wizard, migrate the Applications only That was it, and everything is working as expected. Being also a Microsoft Windows-user, I am still amazed how easy it is to restore my applications! On my Windows XP/Vista environments this would be unthinkable! And very fast, the only thing that took a lot of time (2 hrs) was copying the 138 GB iPhoto library from my backup to my current system

    My first Tiger -> Leopard upgrade show-stopper

    Did a clean install, and the problem is now gone as expected. Maybe I should have done this in the first place (as Adam advised)
  13. Everything looked perfect after the upgrade from Tiger to Leopard on my 2.8GHz iMac, but now I notice the following problem: - Open the finder - Select a file - Command+i - Under Sharing & Permissions: click the plus-icon - After a few seconds my Finder crashes and restarts I noticed this error after reading on a Dutch Mac-forum where some people described this issue. On my Mac Mini I did a fresh install with Leopard, and there I don't have this issue. I tried repairing permissions, but the problem stays... Any suggestions? Or should I do a fresh install on my iMac and with migration-wizard put the photo's and music back from my full-backup?

    Running Leopard Now

    I just performed an upgrade from Tiger to Leopard on my 2 months old iMac 24'', it went very quick and without any issues. Starting apps feels a bit faster. Originally I was planning to do a clean install, but now that everything works fine, I don't see any reason doing this, or am I missing something?
