Apple :: OSX Snow Leopard Changes

Aug 11, 2009

Just a heads up. The New OSX has removed the ability to Archive & Install and the Erase and Install option.

Also included in the optional Installs is QuickTime 7 and Rosetta. Also:

- OSX has also added a Software "incompatibility check" during the general Installation of OSX 10.6. Within the installer there is an List with Software Exclusions. With this list any known third party applications will automatically get disabled during the start up.

- The Exclusions lists also Applies to Migration assistant.

Apple :: 4GB Upgrade & Snow Leopard

Sep 11, 2009

this is my first foray into 4GB in OS X. Just to appease my TypeA twists, could someone please comment for me?

Upgraded my uMB to 4GB last night and System Memory in OS X Activity Monitor (Utilities folder) shows 3.75GB available. I'm not freaked out about this, just wanting to check my curiosity.

Now the About This Mac pop-up window shows 4GB installed so I'm thinking the difference may have to do with OS memory addresses and such which is why you end up with memory recognition in 32bit windows systems, but I'm hoping for confirmation from others that I'm not missing something. The other possibility I considered for the difference is just simply the 1024bit vs 1000bit thing that you end up with in HDD sizing (and that would actually match nicely with the conversion @ ~3.73GB ).

Apple :: Snow Leopard Upgrade

Aug 31, 2009

My upgrade to Snow leopard from Leopard went without incident, and everything works great except for Quicktime.

If I want to watch a WMV file, I get an error message indicating that Quicktime must be installed first to proceed.

The question is this. Can I install Quicktime alone from the Upgrade disk?

I tried the newest version downloaded from Apple's website, however it gives an error upon installation that indicates that the version is incompatible with Snow Leopard. I guess Apple has not updated their download website.

Apple :: Snow Leopard - Opening Files In SL

Sep 26, 2009

Double-clicking files in the Finder under Snow Leopard launches applications associated with the types of the files regardless of which applications used to create those files. I like it but I can see why those users who have been using Mac for 2 decades hate it. Other than that it forces one to adopt a new habit, I think it makes sense both conceptually and practically to ignore creator codes for most users.

Apple :: Terminal Command Snow Leopard

May 1, 2010

i'm using snow leopard. and i was just wondering what command open's up a new terminal window, typing bash or sh would only create a bash or sh session within the same terminal window. Yes i know i can just press command+n or go to the menu and shell->new window. but i'm looking for a typed-out command to do this. Example would be in ubuntu, you would type gnome-terminal in any terminal, and a new terminal window would pop up.

Apple :: Sluggish Trackpad In Snow Leopard

Jan 6, 2010

I installed snow leopard onto an external USB harddrive, just to test it out with my computer (macbook pro, 17-inch, not sure which year it's from, I've had it since 2007)

I ran into a major issue, the trackpad response is extremely sluggish (about a 1-second delay between the movement on the trackpad and the movement on the screen)

Interestingly enough, when I boot snow leopard on my friend's laptop (macbook pro, 15-inch, also from 2007), the trackpad responds just fine.

Apple :: Snow Leopard And Quicktime 10 - How Do You Play Videos At 1.5x

Sep 13, 2009

I've noticed that:

1. There is no longer an A/V control panel under "Window" or wherever it formally was, and;

2. Two-fingered scrolling on the touchpad speeds up playback without changing pitch, but as soon as I lift my fingers, 1.0x playback resumes.

Looking to get through some videos at a faster rate. How can I make 1.5x stick? I know QT on Windows can do this easily.

Apple :: Snow Leopard Upgrade With Time Machine

Aug 25, 2009

I have a 4 month old MB 13" with Leopard.

Say I upgrade to Snow Leopard on Friday......

If I have a subsequent failure, or just want to upgrade my HDD that then requires me to restore my drive from scratch (with a good recent Time Machine backup avaialble), what process would I follow?

1) Install Leopard from my original disk, then upgrade to Snow Leopard, then use the time machine backup to restore?


2) Install Snow Leopard straight from the upgrade disk (if it even possible), then use the Time machine backup to restore?

I guess I am asking whether the "Upgrade Disk" a full install disk, or is it just for an incremental upgrade?. Do I even need my old Leopard disk anymore?

I recently had my cousin get me a june mbp(7 hr battery ones) from the US, since it's much cheaper there than here in india. He ordered it online and brought it here while he was shifting from there.

How do i apply for the upto date program which costs 10$ ?

I dont know the date of purchase, the place of purchase, city , state.

And fyi, I live in india. So i'm guessing there's another problem pertaining to the shipping right?

I popped in the disc and selected Install. Well it starts installing and I go downstairs for about 15. When I come back up, the screen is off but the disc is still spinning. It's been going on like this for about 20 minutes now.

Is the screen suppose to go blank while installation occurs?

This is installing on a fresh new Macbook pro 13.
