ARD 2.1 (admin application) does not launch. Looking at the crash log, it seems that it wants the Installation framework, which isn't in 10.4.

I tried copying the Installation framework from panther and moving it to tiger, which allowed ARD to launch, but it would then crash when trying to actually use it.

Here's hoping we see an update this weekend!

I don't think Disk Warrior 3.0.2 is functioning correctly when applied against a Tiger install.

I had some troubles with a Tiger install's symlinked directories showing up in the Finder. I decided to give DW a shot from a Panther install. Booted into Panther and get an error to the effect of "directory is too damaged to continue" when applied against both Tiger installs. No, I did not reformat for case-sensitivity.

I'm sure this is not normal of course - but my mail app - which uses an IMAP account, just won't load. It loads fine in thunderbird of course, but even though I've re-installed the mail app from the Tiger CD, it just hangs & I have to kill it.

Searched, but not found anyone else with this problem yet - just lucky me!

if you use PGP 8 desktop, I suggest you think long & hard before trying out Tiger. Right now any encrypted volumes you have will not work with Tiger. What's more they don't have a patch. What's even worse, is that you'll have to buy version 9 - which kind of works under Tiger - but not officially, so tough. Oh & did I mention that PGP 9 is still in Beta, so it's still buggy, and just to really rub the salt in to the wound, when I tried to register for my 30 days trial, it took me to a web page with gleefully informed me to come back on May 9th.

Fortunately, you can run it outside of trial mode - which is restricted, but enabled me read only access to my encrypted volume. I didn't want to use my backup particularly to restore - because, well, well because I had backed up the encrypted volume! At least this way I could pull my data off unencrypted.

Thanks a bunch - PGP guys, way to go.

--> sumodude, pgp concerns

At least unless you have cryptographical doubts on the resistance of AES (this will probably be no concern unless you have those "we'd have to kill you if you found out"-kind of secrets...), the on-board encrypion-options that come with the OS should be able to provide useful solutions for encrypted volumes.

Regarding synching of Palm Zire 31 to MacOS 10.4 :

If you try to install palm conduit 1.2 in Tiger it raises an error message that "Palm Conduit 1.2 cannot be installed on iSynch 2.0"

Solution :
Install MacOS 10.3, install the palm conduit on iSynch 1.5, upgrade to MacOS 10.4

It continues to work ok afterward. hmmmmm....

HEH, the PGP guys sold out bad! I've switched to GNU PGP today after using PGP 9 Desktop for a few hours, 9 had so many issues one of which was self-signing did not exist (at least not in a way other applications requiring it could see).

if you use PGP 8 desktop, I suggest you think long & hard before trying out Tiger. Right now any encrypted volumes you have will not work with Tiger. What's more they don't have a patch. What's even worse, is that you'll have to buy version 9 - which kind of works under Tiger - but not officially, so tough.

My upper partitions no longer mount in Tiger. Tried reinstalling the driver but it didn't help. Any partitions over the 128 gig barrier fail to mount on my G4-450DP. This extension worked fine for me in 10.3 (Panther).

Anyone else see this or is it just me? Lucky that I still have a Panther partition to boot from as I have over 100 gigs above the 128 barrier.

One of the applications I was certain would require me to boot from Panther was TurboTax. Because estimated taxes are due again in June, I thought I should test TurboTax with Tiger well in advance so I'd know whether I needed to boot from Panther instead of Tiger.

Surprise! TurboTax Premier 2004 worked like a charm with Tiger.

I know: this thread is for broken apps, but I was so sure that TurboTax 2004 wouldn't, I thought I'd report the unexpected compatibility here.

OSXvnx.app is now giving me trouble, It launced once last night correctly. Now nada, it bounces happily in it's dock and gives me the trianlge signaling it's open and running, which it is, sorta, there is a process for OSX Server, so the server service runs, but the gui part runs and hides....i tried launching it from the command line to see what I got, and it gave me the following

"DevilMayCryForme:/Applications Chris$ open OSXvnc.app/
open[10492]: ShapeShifter APE error: "ShapeShifter could not initialize" in file
"/Users/smeger/Documents/src/ShapeShifter/Sources/APE/main.cpp", line 140
open[10492]: ShapeShifter was unable to load successfully. "

Now a few things bother me about this.

1. I don't have a /Users/smeger directory so where it is getting that info I have no idea.

2. Why OSXvnc.app has anything to do with Shapeshifter again I have no idea...

Sigh, So i removed ShapeShifter (or tried my best since it buries itself in so many little folders it is like a cockroach, I know it'll show up again somewhere down the road.) Waved bye bye to my colorful theme I had installedm, rebooted, and find that I no longer that error from the command line.

So OSXvnc.app sorta works, but I don't like not having the GUI, and without the GUI I also don't have my VNC session password protected, and that really really bothers me.

So after my long winded explanation, any ideas?

Sigh Tiger, so beautiful, yet so many headaches.....

1) What is your username? It's not 'smeger' ?

2) The trouble with Unsanity's APE (used by ShapeShifter) is that it infiltrates itself into everything. That is also its strength. I note that Apple tells you to remove 3rd-party system "enhancements" before installing Tiger. But I believe you can also configure APE and/or ShapeShifter to avoid it affecting specified apps - check the preference panel.

My username is Chris, I don't have, nor have I ever had a User called 'smeger'

Yes Tiger gave me a popup on the desktop this morning saying it was disabling "enhancements" and that I could enable them manually. Right now shapeshifter and its enhancements are gone/disabled.....

Desktop Manager works 99%. The previous version on 10.3.9 let me bind CMD+n (n = 1 through 8) to my desktops, and this over-rode the Aqua CMD+n that would switch windows.

CA... This is what I found on the website: "SilverKeeper v1.1.2 is NOT compatible with Tiger, OS X 10.4. A new release is in final stages of testing, and we hope to release soon. If you are using Tiger, and wish to make a backup, please use the Restore capability of Apple Disk Utility."

OK nevermind... The developer released 0.5.3 today (May 2) and that works fine. This release was only for Tiger compatibilty, and it therefore works as well as the previous release on Panther.

assume that you checked the quality of the backup
I randomly opened half a dozen files on the backup, and all seemed fine. I cannot confirm that ALL files were properly backed up, but everything looked proper and the files I opened were all intact.

Being the paranoid sort though, I also use Apple Backup and Disk Manager images onto two 200GB FW drives. Then I back up the backups onto a server occasionally. And the documents folder onto DVD. Nobody ever had too many backups.

Check out this forum post (http://forums.bombich.com/viewtopic.php?t=5264) by Mike Bombich:

"Apple has broken all of my apps under Tiger. Its a really stupid, simple little bug that affects authentication. I'll fix my apps as soon as possible but I'm hoping Apple will fix the bug." (Mike Bombich)
=-=-=-=-

As a result of this you cannot at present run CCC by double-clicking it. Pending a fix by Apple or a possible update from MB, and thanks to a post by "iRoss" (thanx!), run CCC from Terminal under sudo...

• In the Finder open the window of the folder where you keep CCC
• Launch Terminal (prob in /Applications/Utilities)
• In the Terminal window type "sudo open " – no quotes and note the SPACE at the end
• then drag CCC into the Terminal window – that will complete the line with the full path
• hit <return> and at the prompt enter your password – (typing does not show)
• hit <return>.
=-=-=-=-

Early reports are confusing in that this workaround works well for some and not at all for others, and there is insufficient info as yet to see why. If you are one of the unlucky ones and if making a Tiger clone is urgent you should consider logging in as root to do so. If you have to ask how to do that then I strongly suggest waiting – if you log in as root the potential for damage is great and you should be very sure you know exactly what you are doing. If you do log in as root remember to disable root asap.

Thanks very much.

Only two came up, which at least Preferential Treatment's last version for Panther was adapted to handle. I understand Micromat uses a different format for their .plist files. Earlier versions of Preferential Treatment had problems in recognizing TechTool Pro's preference, but the the developer's Panther-compatible PT version reported no problems with either TT{ or DiskStudio, both of which came up after the Terminal command:
com.micromat.TechToolPro4.plist: file does not exist or is not readable or is not a regular file

com.micromat.diskstudio.plist: file does not exist or is not readable or is not a regular file
The terminal test is unexpectedly fast on my 733-mhz G4. Thanks, again!

I think (still testing) that my current ipfw rules (from Panther) break Tiger pretty badly. Everything was more or less fine with Tiger's stability until yesterday evening, when I decided to move my ruleset from my Panther install over to Tiger. It ran fine for a little while until a couple hours later when the OS started to lock up on me (lost all network sanity, and the Finder and all 'net apps started beachballing). A hard reboot and it was fine, before I went to bed I tried to sanely shutdown and the OK button on the Shutdown UI beachballed on me. Again, no network connectivity.

The logs have ipfw rule splats (where I have asked ipfw to log) before each incident, so I'm wondering.. I saw that ipfw was replaced by ipfw2, so my ruleset is probably badly out of whack.

I disabled the ruleset and will see what happens tonight.

This should be a warning for all users of ipfw via the CLI or BrickHouse or SunShield.

1. DiskWarrior's 3.0.2 version is incompatible. Alsoft has promised to come out soon with at Tiger-compatible version 3.0.3.

2. Norton Disk Doctor and Speed Disk were eaten by the Tiger and not supported past Panther.

3. The good news: TechTool Pro 4.0.4 works like a charm with Tiger in the several diagnostic and repair functions I tested. I run it from one hard drive to another and it fixed a bunch of Finder Info problems with classic files but gave Tiger's Volume Structure and File Structure passsing marks. For those without 2nd hard drives, the eDrive should just as well as running TTP from an extra internal or external (FW) HD.

Roxio released a patch (1.0.2) for Popcorn which includes Tiger-compatibility. Program runs fine after applying the patch.

I've also upgraded my g4 Powerbook to Tiger. Macromedia Flash MX 2004 worked fine after the upgrade.

I decided to try reapplying the 7.2 patch on my G5 system, and then re-installing Flash to see if that would help. I downloaded the patch. Before applying the patch I decided to try Flash once more and it started up just fine. (But just once) Subsequent tries get it to crash again. This looks like it just may a glitch in my setup. I'll go ahead and try a re-install of Flash.

I'm sure this is not normal of course - but my mail app - which uses an IMAP account, just won't load. It loads fine in thunderbird of course, but even though I've re-installed the mail app from the Tiger CD, it just hangs & I have to kill it.

Maybe someone did post this and i missed it, if so I apologize, but so far the only problem i have with my Tiger is my BRYCE 5...opens, runs great and everything, but if you try to save anything it just sits there and does nothing....doesn't tell me the program is "not responding" when i do force quit, it just likes to sit there idle, all drop downs are grayed out too...anyone know about this as well?

All of Cisco's VPN clients are broken by Tiger. They expect a Tiger compatible version of VPN client in mid-may.

http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1790386,00.asp


OK, so the Cisco VPN client update came out today. I tested and it works on both Tiger and Panther.

FYI: The "Macintouch Tiger Incompatibilities and Workaround" chart does not seem to have been unpdated recently.

This MacOSXHints thread has the added value of showing the dates when people detected problems.

VersionTracker.com doesn't maintain a list of incompatibles, but does have an extensive and updated list of compatibles:

Now Up-To-Date is non-functional in Tiger. Sadly. Hopefully Poweron will release a fix soon. Even more hopefully, it won't be 'version 5' so I have to buy a jillion licencese it yet AGAIN.

Roxio released a patch (1.0.2) for Popcorn which includes Tiger-compatibility. Program runs fine after applying the patch.

I've also upgraded my g4 Powerbook to Tiger. Macromedia Flash MX 2004 worked fine after the upgrade.

I decided to try reapplying the 7.2 patch on my G5 system, and then re-installing Flash to see if that would help. I downloaded the patch. Before applying the patch I decided to try Flash once more and it started up just fine. (But just once) Subsequent tries get it to crash again. This looks like it just may a glitch in my setup. I'll go ahead and try a re-install of Flash.

Brave as ever (with a backup) my G5 upgrade in place was fine apart from FW, it gets to show the workspace for a tantalising moment before crashing.

Even after an uninstall and reinstall same problem plus complaints from LicMan (the activator). Still waiting for Macromedia to acknowledge it.
I suspect the activation has fallen foul of Tiger's new ACL/ACE model.

FWIW, my G4 Powerbook with 10.3.9 took a new, clean and full install of the whole Studio MX package with no problems, so that's ruled out any underlying licence issues.

CMD+tab cycles apps as always. If I stop on X11 it becomes the 'active' app as usual, but now that I am on Tiger, the windows don't get raised! Very frustrating. I have to hit F10 or F9 (expose) in order to bring all my xterms to the front.

In perhaps a related issue, I have several times seen my first X11 window opened after a reboot disappear entirely (i.e. it no longer exists in the 'Window' pull down, or in expose, or in any way that I can think of to look for it). On one occasion, I lost two subsequent X11 windows. Also, if I cycle through windows using CMD-~, X11 will refuse to cycle, even if windows exist.

The windows are just disappearing. I do not know whether they are being closed by the system or just slipping into oblivion (making me wonder about a memory leak...).

At any rate, it's frustrating to have a working job in a window and lose it. This has only occurred since I installed 10.4.1 - I used X11 regularly before and never had a problem like this (I went from 10.3.9 to 10.4.1).

not sure if this applies - but since upgrading to tiger I have major problems with Freehand. Certain things just don't work the way they used and some menu's display strangely. Also, Safari often gives me a 'cannot connect' error message when it comes to some pages via a secure connection. If I do the exact same with Internet Explorer, all works perfectly. Wierd!

Can some please verify that CCC is broke under Tiger. I can't get past the Authenticate text field. Rebooted in Panther and it cloned my Tiger internal drive without no problem.

Verified... CCC does not currently work with Tiger (the author is working on an new release compatible with Tiger). I've done the same - kept a smaller partition with Panther and CCC. Booting under Panther, CCC clones Tiger partitions w/o any problems.

Retrospect 6 won't startup at all.
Mr. Montana, it not only launches, but Retrospect 6.0.212 also has been running well in both duplicate (clone) mode and in backup mode with OS 10.4.1 on my G4 and even on my old Beige G3.

If running Tiger's Disk Utility Repair Permissions doesn't help, try TechTool Pro 4.0.4 or DiskWarrior 3.0.3.

If you've still got problems, take at look at the Dantz Retrospect 6 forum:

http://dantz1.conxion.com/ubbthreads/postlist.php?Cat=&Board=Retro6

Once you've got it running, take note of the .Spotlight-V100 file and enclosing folder exclusions recommended in both some threads in the Retro forum and in the Dantz Knowledge Base.

I installed Tiger on my Dual 2 GHz PowerPC G5. Since then, everything works fine except Quark 6.5. The file opens, but then the spinning wheel comes up and not even command-option-shift-escape works. I have to force quit to get out and, next to where Quark is listed in parenthesis it reads (not responding). I've never had this happen before!
I've scoured the web for hints, contacted Quark and Apple, removed suspicious xtensions (deja vu), etc., to no avail. We're on a network and my coworkers who upgraded are having similar maladies on their Macs. You guys are brilliant and my last hope! Can you help?!

I'm guessing you're asking because you don't have a backup of your machine made just before you upgraded to Tiger. If you did backup, prepare to restore that backup, and finish your ongoing projects before you try upgrading to Tiger again.

With a production machine [i.e., one that does paying work, not my home email machine], I don't upgrade til I've researched the apps I use to see if there were any problems AND THEN I back up the whole HD. Lately, though, I've done this instead of backing up: I have 2 HDs per machine, anyway, so I'd put the newer OSX on the other HD. That way, I could boot back to the old OSX without either making a backup or restoring it. To be honest, I don't always do this, but I realize I take a huge risk if I don't either back up my HD or put the new OSX on a different HD instead.

I did that 2nd HD trick with Tiger, and I'm glad I did, because a few of my crucial apps weren't ready for Tiger [and still aren't].

If you didn't make a backup, you might need to copy all your data and apps [more on that elsewhere at this site, I'm sure] & reinstall Panther.

I like having 2 HDs so that I can do things like this without taking the time to make a backup, then restore it -- but I realize there are some risks involved, so I'm not saying that having 2 HDs is the same as having a backup.

Since installing Tiger iTaf (a free alarm clock program) has stopped working with iTunes.
Also, the install of Tiger seems to have erased all my entries in Address Book! I was horrified to learn this since it contained alot of info that I had not saved elsewhere. Lesson: always backup before installing new OS. That learned, anyone with any ideas on how to get this data back?

That shows that the crash is happening when Mail.app is trying to decide if some message is Junk mail or not. Maybe that will give you a clue as to why. In any case, turning off the Junk mail processing (while not desirable as you will get more junk in your In box) will likely avoid the crashes.

Hello all,

I just wanted to add my two cents worth... I've been working on 2 imacs
that just updated to 10.4.3, one has Chimera loaded on it, and likes
to crash when running that program now. The user lost their entire user directory, except for the name of the directory itself, so that she is unable to run many normal programs that require saving temp files in her directory. I used Data Rescue to recover some of her files, but some were gone for good it seems.

On the other machine, it is running the prosoft client. Every time you try to copy files to the server, it crashes. I thought that maybe the 1.3.1 update would fix it, but it didn't. During one of the crashes, the user lost their entire email identity (with about 300 messages). I tried to recover that with the Data Rescue utility, but can't seem to find the data. Any ideas on how to fix any of these issues?!?!

Hi all. New to the forum but am hoping someone else has this problem with the 10.4.3 update.
I did the update on my poor ol' eMac and it has completely stopped both Safari and Firefox from being able to open any pages. It just stalls out.

I've cleared the cache, checked my plists and also done regular maintenence (MacJanitor and running the daily weekly monthly scripts from terminal). Disk diagnostics come up fine but when I repair permissions, the same fixes come up over and over again. They are not getting fixed.

I have a firewire backup, but really don't want to lose this update since it was so massive. Any helpful hints to get the browsers working again without reverting to the older version? No other problems at all seem to be occuring. I also updated my iBook and it was running fine, but seems to be doing the same things only occasionally. (Also, found Times RO on the desktop and deleted it, seemed to help it move for a while, but after 10 min of successful browsing, it stalled out again). Help!!
Thanks

Check if you have any 3rd-party extensions or plugins that might be affecting the browsers.

Otherwise try the standard troubleshooting suggestions:
http://www.apple.com/support/mac101/ (see the "My Mac needs help" section)
http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=2004011205473937
http://forums.osxfaq.com/viewtopic.php?t=7269
http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/faqs.html

In particular, be sure to try logging in as a different user to see if the problem exists there. (Create a new user via the Accounts preference panel if you only have the one user account so far.)

If there are no problems for the new user, the problem is under your home folder somewhere - probably the preferences files for the browsers.

when I repair permissions, the same fixes come up over and over again. They are not getting fixed.
If it's just the "special permissions" messages, this is normal. Just ignore it.

11-14-2005, 11:11 AM
Thanks for the suggestions, but I've tried that and it doesn't seem to make a difference with the new account. That's what perplexes me. And since my browser is so slow, it's impossible to download any updated/redownload any plug-ins. Is there any UNIX command or otherwise that could help me check the integrity of the plug-ins? I have a feeling that may be what's going on, since the problem is universal through out the accounts. I suppose I could just connect the two computers through firewire and use the laptop to get new plug-ins. Ack. I hate when the Mac is being stubborn (of course, this is a user problem, haha). Thanks for the tips and I'll check out all the other troubleshooting see if anything helps out.
Thanks!!

11-14-2005, 11:18 AM

Try using the 'debug_http' command that I explained in this old thread.
http://forums.macosxhints.com/showpost.php?p=199191&postcount=7
It will show you the times that were taken for the various stages involved in getting a web page.
(This doesn't do any checking on the plugins - it avoids them altogether, so if you have no problem when using debug_http, it indicates a problem with the web browsers or the plugins etc that you have added - as opposed to a problem with your network connection etc.)

But I note that this thread is really just for reporting problems with 10.4 (versus 10.3 and earlier) so if you need more help with this it would be best to create a new separate thread.


I see now that you had already started a new thread on this problem.

Just a head up that 10.4.3 breaks the OS X 2.04 M-Audio drivers for their Delta range of cards (you will get a KP or endless external audio loop). Both Apple and M-Audio are aware of it but who knows when a real fix will appear (given M-Audio's slow track record of other fixes). The temporary fix is to use either the 2.01 or 2.03 drivers available for 10.3.8 or thereabouts.

Cisco VPN still broken with 10.4.3, Safari does not work now either, unless I open it by opening a webarchive file on my system, then it crashes with a bad kernel address... some of the other browsers accumulate that error with protracted use. I can work around these matters, but don't seem to be able to solve them. I have multiple users configured, but have not partitioned the hard drive. It is the same for all, Cisco VPN client only ever worked in root, does not start now; Safari doesn't work anywhere as a web browser, but can sometimes open webarchives, rarely, then crashes.

Hello, I have some elements to continue the "exploration" of the matter : you ask Bryce to display a Tiger window like "Open" "Save as..." or anything else. The thing is that this window is displayed in the background of Bryce, and can never be put foreground.
If you do "cmd+tab" and switch to the Finder, you should be able to see this "Open" or "Save" window still in background. If you try click on it, it brings you back to Bryce, and never lets you "activate" this dialog.
Maybe you should try with 2 displays, which unfortunately I don't have, since if you try to do "cmd+click&drag" on the top of this window, you will be able to move it in the background, and put it on another screen.

I just upgraded from Panther using the just released 10.4.3 in-box version. I used the simple Upgrade path although I did make a bootable firewire backup of my Panther system before upgrading. The machine is a dual proc 1Ghz G4.

I have a few issues (Safari seems to be less stable than before), but the biggest is with Office 2004 and in particular Word which quits (just vanishes) after typing a couple of sentences. There's no "unexpected quit" message from the system, but each time it happens the console reports:

In HrOamApplicationGetCommandBars
CGFontKey.c:230: failed assertion `id[k].qy <= kCGFontSharedCacheKeyMaxQ'

I created a fresh user and that account has the same problem, so it's not as simple as a problem with my own prefs. Since I haven't done any hacking on my system I'm surprised this isn't a common problem but there seem to very few reports of Word issues and none like this. Any suggestions?

I'll have a window open, and be reading something online. Then when I need to type in something, like a response to a forum, that window is frozen, and I can't type anything at all. I have to close that frozen window, and open up a new window, then I can pick up where I left off.

This happens everyday, and appears to only be a problem with Firefox. I have the newest version of Firefox, 1.5.0.2, which just updated automatically several days ago. Has anyone else noticed this same problem? Is there a fix?

I'm running Tiger 10.4.6 on my iBook G4. Any ideas? Thanks.

I think I got out of it by doing Cmd-Opt-Esc, to bring up the Force Quit dialog, then hitting Esc again to make that go away. I tried so many things -- alt tabbing, etc] -- that I'm not sure this was the thing that did it, but it's worth a try.

The same thing happened to me last week in Final Cut HD, and the Force Quit dialog box trick worked just fine for that prob.

Be careful using Speedtools with Tiger.
The current version installs a kext that might garble up the HD structure due to not fully being tiger compatible.
It might also prevent OSX from being able to shut down.

So: if you use ST (not recommended), look up the install log and delete all files again after use.

Maybe someone did post this and i missed it, if so I apologize, but so far the only problem i have with my Tiger is my BRYCE 5...opens, runs great and everything, but if you try to save anything it just sits there and does nothing....doesn't tell me the program is "not responding" when i do force quit, it just likes to sit there idle, all drop downs are grayed out too...anyone know about this as well?

I have the EXACT SAME PROBLEM! It is ANNOYING! The problem is that the window that is supposed to show up actually does, but it is behind the actual program, making it impossible to see unless you switch applications. You still cannot click on it.:mad: :confused:

You probably just need to update to version 1.0.6 if you are on a PowerPC based Mac. Mine is working just fine! Too bad I'm not very fond of the game mechanics because the graphics are incredibly smooth. I'll play Zanac (old school 8-bit Nintendo) before this game every time. Try VersionTracker or MacUpdate for the patch.

Make sure you close it before logging out. The Finder will remember which windows you had open and return them to their last position when you log back in to your account.

It sounds like you aren't copying the application from the mounted DMG (which is like a CD or other disk) onto your regular hard drive - e.g. into the /Applications folder.

Someone please recommend a fix for this problem: I am running 10.4.7.

When I attempt to open any of these programs (from either the dock or applications folder): address book, calculator, or mail, they just bounce up and down (on the dock) but do not open.

I have not yet tried reinstalling the OS as that's just too time consuming. I suspect that there is some comptatibility issue. So, can someone suggest an easier fix? Thanks in advance.

if you use PGP 8 desktop, I suggest you think long & hard before trying out Tiger. Right now any encrypted volumes you have will not work with Tiger. What's more they don't have a patch. What's even worse, is that you'll have to buy version 9 - which kind of works under Tiger - but not officially, so tough. Oh & did I mention that PGP 9 is still in Beta, so it's still buggy, and just to really rub the salt in to the wound, when I tried to register for my 30 days trial, it took me to a web page with gleefully informed me to come back on May 9th.

Fortunately, you can run it outside of trial mode - which is restricted, but enabled me read only access to my encrypted volume. I didn't want to use my backup particularly to restore - because, well, well because I had backed up the encrypted volume! At least this way I could pull my data off unencrypted.



Yeah, I "upgraded" from 8 to 9.0.5, but was stupid enough to actually pay the $99.95. Come to find out it won't work on the Intel Macs. They said the problem should be fixed with another upgrade by the end of the summer, but, well...

Several emails later, they still have my hundred bucks and I have no PGP working.

I have exactly the same problem with Bryce 5. So far, unable to find an update for it, but I'm still looking. I understand DAZ3D.com is selling Bryce 5.5 now. Perhaps they would know the remedy, or perhaps it takes an upgrade. As far as I can tell, Bryce 5.5 is for OS 10.3 and above.

Well, I'm apparently in the same boat with you guys, it all started with Bryce 5, and went downhill from there.

I got a third 3D modeling package, ArtofIllusion, and have encountered the very same problem with it that I'm already having with Bryce 5 and DAZ, that being the program cannot find the materials and textures, even though they are installed in the folders as they should be. I think I might not be alone in this problem. It would seem at this point that the issue is with Mac OS X Tiger. I really need to solve this problem, has it been documented anywhere that you know of?

I just got off the phone with Apple Support, and they have no answers for me either, other than that perhaps the software does not support the Intel chips in the newer Macs, and if that's so might there be a patch for this?

How can it be that I'm the only one having this problem, and having the same problem with 3 different apps of the same kind?

Some in your forums have suggested to me that I try Bryce 5.5, so how much would it cost me to get that, and do you know if it supports the Intel chipped newer Macs?

The most recent posts regarding DAZ/Bryce 5.0 are not very encouraging. But daz3d.com is now sporting Bryce 6.0, and inviting users to upgrade from 5.0 or 5.5. I wonder whether anyone who previously had problems with Bryce/Tiger has tried Bryce 6.0 and whether that performs on Intel Mac OS X than pervious versions ?
I am new to Bryce - never used it, but I want to. I'd like to know it will work well on my MacBook Pro (running Mac OS X 10.4.8) before I buy the app.

Wow, has Tiger been out this long already?

I just started using Grapher.app for a project and the grouping functions seem to be broken. I searched the Internet via google for some solutions, but there seem to be none. I have only seen one reference to this, so I'm not sure if it is a local problem. My version number is 1.0, whereas wikipedia.org states that 1.1 is the latest. I don't know if I missed an update, or if wikipedia is mistaken. I cannot find an update for it at apple.com.

Would somebody be willing to check /Application/Utilities/Grapher.app to see if it actually is broken and does not rename groups, or group when told to do so. Mostly renaming... I can tell that it has been done before, because the examples have named groups.

Mail app has been working fine for several years. Yesterday on attempting to launch via the docking bar, the "postage stamp" only jumped once, with no claret underneath. In looking at the mail.app in finder, it shows that the application was last opened at the same date/time when I tryed to launch via the docking bar. Viewing system process via the activity monitor shows that when an attempt is made to launch the mail app, a crashdump is logged by root.

System is a 1.25 iMAC G4, 1 GB ram, OSX 10.4.9 with most current patches.

I thought that MS Office 2001 (or Office X) was fixed and is now working with OS X. However, I was work the other day and a number of Office X programs on different Macs seem to have been broken by 10.4.10 - anyone else have this problem?

You need to explain what “seems to be broken”. I have heard no reports of either applications breaking with the update. However, problems after many of the recent OS updates have caused problems and not only with Office.

The best solution is to download and apply the latest Apple Combo updater. Running the combo updater overwrites potentially problem-causing files. Combo updaters will install on the same version as they’re applying—no need to roll back or do a clean install. You’ll find download links for the updater along with more info on troubleshooting Entourage here: http://www.entourage.mvps.org/troubleshoot/combo.html

When I say Broken, you can open a document by double-clicking and all is fine. But, when you open the application normally it will show the splash screen and then quits. Its very odd - I'm not near an effected computer at the moment to show you the logs, but it is quite strange!

To use PPC applications, I have to start in safe mode.
