I bought Apple Mac OS X Version 10.5 aka Leopard today and am in updating mode. I’ve got it up and running reasonably smoothly – although it’s going to take a little while to get used to it all.
Two issues/problems have surfaced so far:
1. Mail.app isn’t working on my PowerPC. Consistently getting error messages when trying to launch it. Mail is working on my MacBook Pro – just not on the desktop.
2. I went to see if there was an update yet that might fix it and got another error – ‘The file “index-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog” couldn’t be found on the server “swscan.apple.com”.’ Interestingly I got the same error on my MacBook Pro when I tried to do a software update on that too. A quick search for the error in Google and I find others with the same glitch. Looks like Apply might need to get onto that one. update: looks like they’ve fixed this problem – software update is now working fine.
Other than these – things are running well.
At first things were a little slow – but I think that was spotlight indexing the computer. Now things are working much faster. Spaces rocks (I can see it being incredibly handy), Stacks is hand and will help declutter my destop, the changes in Finder are all nice, what I see in Mail with the new ‘notes’ and updated to-do features look good and Time Machine is going to be very handy when I get myself a bigger external hard drive tomorrow.
Lots more features to play with tomorrow.
