I just updated to Mac OS X 10.6.3 through Software Update, but now all of my fonts look really strange in Pages and Keynote. Even worse, most of my fonts are completely missing from Word and Excel! This was all working just fine in 10.6.2. Is there any way that I can downgrade back to 10.6.2?
Terminal (in Applications/Utilities) gives you direct access to the UNIX system that underpins Mac OS X. By typing specific commands into your Terminal window, you can make changes, open settings, or access features that aren’t available by any other means.
I’m running Tiger (Mac OS 10.4.11) on my six-year-old PowerPC iMac. I want to upgrade my OS to as high as it can go and then upgrade some applications as well. I got a series of OS upgrades from apple.com/download, which I thought would take me from 10.4.11 up to 10.4.6. But unless I can get 10.4.2 installed, I have no hope of moving further. When I attempt to install 10.4.2, I get a message saying, “You can’t install Mac OS X Update on this volume. This volume does not meet the requirements for this upgrade.” Is the problem that I’m upgrading from 10.4.11 rather than 10.4.1? I don’t have 10.4.1 to go back to. Any wisdom, or am I stuck in a sinkhole?
Sources claim the first public beta of Mac OS X 10.6.3 will be released to developers by the end of Thursday. The build will probably use the prefix 10Dxx and will initially be limited to a select group of developers, probably to control the amount of feedback.
Groklaw reports that the
California version of Apple v. Psystar is over and in their words, "It’s a
total massacre." Psystar shocked the world in February 2008 with their
announcement of pseudo Macs—essentially PC’s put together with off-the-shelf
components, but with OS X preinstalled.
