how one things leads to another
warning: if you don't like a rambling style of blog post, go read something helpful. Still here? Ok, cool, I love you too.
As would be expected from a Mac OS X fan like me, I instantly jumped to Software Update as I learned that Safari 3 was now available for Tiger in the 10.4.11 update. It's a big chunk of update that one, including several securuty fixes etc. Along the update process, my network died for some reason, so the process was interrupted. I restarted it when ym net was back, and it completed - successfully as it claimed...
Looking into Console it was quickly clear that the update to Safari 3 had gone foul somewhere... dxld errors for not found things in the WebKit Framework...
Ok, but what to do. software Update claimed the 10.4.11 update was done and ready. I started searching the 'universal manual' aka the web for clues... could I remove and reunstall an Software Update? Ah, here we go: download the manual installer and run that. Worth a try if a bit chunky at 120+ mb... Oh JOY the installer crashes! Now what??
Here's the final fix that solved my problems nicely: RUN REPAIR PERMISSIONS dodo. Disk Utility, boot drive, repair permissions, reboot, run update installer.
All well now. We have safari 3 and are happy.
But consider this: all I really wanted to do was start a littler service that happens to have a dashboard widget, so that I COULD DO SOME WORK... this only tool me about 5 hours, so why am I complaining hahaha
