Installing OS X 10.6 - Snow Leopard - 28 August 2009

Just did the upgrade. Took about 40 minutes. No user interaction required the whole time. So far as I can tell, only a neat prefpane (menumeters - My *MAIN 'tool') is incompatible. So far as I can tell, all my 32 bit apps work (you have to check Rosetta in the install options).

For the Mac people here. I'll add to this as I continue to explore Snow Leopard.

So far, so good.

BTW - I didn't do a clean install as I know I *should* (too lazy to reinstall all my software).

Also - I had everything backed up to a bootable disk (yea - checked to make sure it would boot after cloning with CarbonCopyCloner) so a crash wouldn't have significantly affected me.

Now - On with the evening!

So far, no serial numbers required. I bought the 'box set' to get the iLife and iWork '09 updates. Installing iLife '09 now and then to iWork '09.

NOTE: I have a laser jet HP 4005 and duplex printing appears to be disabled.

Let us know how you like the new iWork and iLife updates, Marc. I keep getting the upgrade notifications, but haven't done them yet. :eek:

So far - there are some HP printer issues (no printer duplex) but it does print OK (just not double sided which is a big reason I bought it) and my scanner (HP5550C) isn't recognized.

I'm looking at those issues but the upgrade was a 64 bit 'core' upgrade to kick in the multi-core Intel chips capability (again, 32 bit apps that I have tried so far other than the MenuMeters prefs pane all work, but then again I have more testing to do... Parellels is next... My printer works, so if I DO loose duplex function I *can* boot from my pre-update drive and print and scan as usual. I consider my final OS X 10.5.8 to be a 'frozen' drive. I won't update it. It's off line as an 'emergency' drive right now.

Yup - Got the printer duplex working. Scanner may be a problem. I'll try a reinstall of the drivers from my original disk later. Right now it's dead. So far everything else I've tested is working.

I have Parallels 4 - It works.

Reinstalled the HP Scanjet 5550C scanner with sheet feeder. Works as it should.

What driver did you use? According to the HP support site, the most recent one available is for OS 9. I'm curious only because when Windows XP was released, HP (and a few other manufacturers) decided not to create drivers for a lot of their older hardware, and a lot of people were SOL. It resulted in a lot of bad PR for HP.
