OS X :: Upgrade To Snow Leopard/any Need To Upgrade Your RAM?

Aug 30, 2009

I am curious about the system requirement of Snow Leopard. Since the performance and speed are better on SL, I think Snow Leopard will consume a little bit more resource of our macs., although I know Snow Leopard is just only the refinement of the software.

So, my question is that WILL YOU UPGRADE YOUR RAM OF YOUR MAC?

OS X :: Would You Upgrade To Snow Leopard Again?

Sep 6, 2009

I have the latest and greatest 10.5.whatever and while I bought and own the new 10.6 DVD I have yet to upgrade. The primary reason is that I use PGP to encrypt my disks and it is not compatible with 10.6 so I'd have to unencrypt and uninstall PGP Full Disk Encryption. (And that takes DAYS!). Plus, I use Adobe CS3 and I understand that has hiccups with Snow Leopard as well. If you upgraded, would you do it again? To be honest, I bought the upgrade because it was cheap and I like to have the latest and greatest but while this is the latest I'm not sure this is the greatest. (I don't even know what the upgrade offers me!)

OS X :: Snow Leopard Upgrade Now Or Later?

Sep 10, 2009

How many of you are just fine using 10.5.8 and find no need to upgrade to Snow Leopard? This reminds me of the company I work for which has all company PCs running on XP and refuses to upgrade any company computer to Vista for the time being. I know, I know, Mac OS is way better...but I've read about incompatibility issues and it makes me wonder, what's the worst that can happen if I decide to wait a good 3-4 months to do the upgrade?

OS X :: Wants To Upgrade Snow Leopard

Dec 9, 2009

So I have 2 issues. My first one is that when I upgraded to Snow leopard, i cannot use safari. it says I have v4.0.1. and go to Apple store and download it though I'm a little confused and don't wanna mess this up. Also on my desktop I have a copy of the Applications folder and an Applications alias?? I tried putting just the app folder in the trash but then I can't open anything up. I usually just go through the finder and through Mac HD to find stuff for now as I'm new to Mac.

MacBook :: Upgrade To SSD With Snow Leopard?

Jun 12, 2009

I've never updated an OS before, so this probably appears to be very noob-ish. I currently have a refurb 2.4 al macbook. I can't return it, so instead of whining and complaining (past that stage) I'm looking at it as thus: I'm one of very few people to have an aluminum macbook. I want to upgrade to a SSD when Snow Leopard is released in September. How do I make this happen? Is it as simple as swapping the hard drive and then booting from the SL install disks? Almost seems too easy. Also, do you guys think it's a good idea to swap the stock 250GB HDD for an SSD (120GB Vertex) and use the HDD as an external?

OS X :: SSH Broken After Snow Leopard Upgrade

Sep 8, 2009

Ok ever since the SL upgrade I cant ssh to my machine. I can't even ssh to it locally. I use ssh in order to work around the screen sharing without mobile me subscription. Ssh does not accept my password and after 3 failed attempts it quits. I've done ssh-keygen, sudo ssh... and even tried the full path /usr/bin/ssh (which I believed worked once) but I may have been hallucinating from all the madness. Here's the verbose logging...I'm afraid to muck with the ssh config files...Why would this all of a sudden stop working?

OS X :: Upgrade Tiger To Snow Leopard

Sep 15, 2009

Now that's it's been out for awhile, and based on people's experiences, if I'm looking to upgrade Tiger to Snow Leopard, should I get the box set or no? I rarely use the "i" suites as it is. Just wondering what might be the best route, since apparently the box set doesn't include anything to do with Leopard.

OS X :: When To Upgrade (Install Snow Leopard)

Sep 17, 2009

I bought a copy of SL a couple of weeks ago to update my early 2008 MBP, 4 GB memory. But after reading lots of complaints I decided to hold off until some bug fixes come out. Well....how long should I wait? How many of you are happy that you upgraded? Leopard works just fine for me, so I don't want to mess that up for no real reason.

I'm still running 10.4.11 on my late 2007 BlackBook. If I do a clean install using just the cheap Snow Leopard upgrade disk will I have iPhoto etc. or do I need to buy iLife? Also, could you please recommend an idiot-proof, step-by-step guide to formatting the HD and installing Snow Leopard from scratch with the upgrade disk?

OS X :: Tiger To Snow Leopard Upgrade?

Mar 5, 2010

so i've done a lot of research, and a vast majority of people are saying that if you install the $30 upgrade to snow leopard onto an intel based mac running Tiger, it works!I have two questions regarding this.

Is it true!? because i don't want to waste $30 for nothing Would i be able to run logic 9 after this upgrade?
my only goal is to run logic 9. I have no interest in any of the features that come with leopard or snow leopard

OS X :: Mac OS X Upgrade From Tiger To Snow Leopard ?

Apr 5, 2010

I am helping a friend upgrade a three year old iMac from 10.4 (tiger) to 10.6 (snow leopard), she has purchased all the software 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6 upgrade. For some reason she never moved to 10.5 even though she had the DVD. In addition I wanted to have a "clean install". The first thing I did was make a backup of all of her files. Then I booted 10.4 from DVD and used disk utility to erase the hard disk. Next

I booted 10.6 from DVD and selected English as the language, then I get the following error: "Mac OS X can't be installed on this computer. It requires a previous installation of 10.5."

Do we really have to go from 10.4 to 10.5 to 10.6? What a pain in the butt!!! Any ideas on how to skip 10.5? I already erased the hard disk.

Here is a link that recommends a clean install:
