    yes, but...

    Does this fix the "Cannot find server www.blahblahblah.com" problem in Safari? I'm getting that more often than not now, and I've moved back to Mozilla until it's fixed.

    awaiting bugs

    hopefully this will just solve the problems with 10.3.6 and not create any new bugs.

    I think I'll wait

    to see if 10.3.7 hoses anyone else's LaCie FW800 HD the way 10.3.6 did mine.

    No issues yet

    I've installed the update and ran my standard set of applications: iTunes, NetNewsWire, Safari, Firefox, iPhoto, Photoshop, Salling Clicker, VLC, etc...) and haven't had any issues. The menubar and Dock did take a little longer to show up, but that will probably be better on the 2nd boot.

    RE: I think I'll wait

    Maybe next time you will read the README first before installing because it says this:

    "Important: Please read before installing

    * If you have a third-party FireWire hard drive connected, turn it off and disconnect it before installing this update. Reconnect it and turn it back on after installation is complete and you've restarted."

    Apple like M$

    The only way I see that Apple could be like M$ is these constant friggin security updates... I remember the nightmare that was downloading 40mb, 80mb updates for Winblowz...

    Of course I'm just happier than can be having switched to Mac over 2 years ago, and would never go back. Thank You Mr. Jobs. Y0u da Man!

    maybe next time

    "Maybe next time you will read the README first before installing because it says this:

    Maybe next time you'll find out the whole story instead of shooting from the hip and blowing your leg off.

    Plugged in LaCie before upgrading to 10.3.6 and updated it with latest LaCie updater. Unplugged it and upgraded TiBook to 10.3.6. Rebooted, plugged in Firmware-patched LaCie per LaCie's instructions. Voila! Does not mount, and no longer works on other computers running 10.3.5 and before.

    Sorry if that's confusing for you.

    display usb port problem!

    I just installed the update and my keyboard no longer works when plugged directly into my Studio Display 17". (nor does any other usb device I just try, btw) I have a G4 Quicksilver with an ATI video card. I assume this problem is related to the ATI Driver update!
