OS X Leopard :: Software Update - Can't Find Update Server


Software Update couldn't install two things: iTunes 9.1 and a "security update". When downloading I got a message saying the update server could not be found. I downloaded iTunes manually, but I cannot download the security update. Also, Software Update is now saying nothing needs to be installed. I tried deleting the com.apple.softwareupdate.plist file but that hasn't worked. I also trashed the file and I'm worried now I shouldn't have. Edit: the file I deleted seems to be back in the preference folder... does it just generate a new one after it's deleted?

Mac :: Apple Quietly Testing First Beta Of OS X 10.5.8 forums.appleinsider.com

Apple this week is reported to be testing the first internal builds of Mac OS X 10.5.8, one of the final updates, if not the last, slated for its current Leopard operating system software.News of this particular maintenance update is significant for owners of PowerPC-based Macs, given that Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard requires a Mac with an Intel processor.

OS X :: Apple Addresses File Sharing Security In Mac 10.6.4? forums.appleinsider.com

Apple on Monday issued a security update for Mac OS X 10.6.4, addressing an issue that could allow a remote attacker to access shared folders without a valid password. Security Update 2010-006 was issued Monday afternoon. It applies to Mac oS X 10.6.4 and Mac OS X Server. 10.6.4. The 1.93MB file is available through Software Update or direct from Apple. The security update is recommended for all users of Snow Leopard, and it addresses an issue where a remote attacker could access shared folders on a system, as long as they knew the name of an account name on that system. By default, file sharing is not enabled on a Mac, meaning the issue would only affect those who have the service turned on. The original problem was caused by an error handling issue in AFP Server within Mac OS X 10.6.4. The issue does not affect systems running a version of the operating system earlier than Snow Leopard.

Apple :: Tweaks OS X 10.6.3 With Stability Update (10.6.3 V1.1) forum.notebookreview.com

Apple tweaks OS X 10.6.3 with stability update (10.6.3 v1.1) Apple has released Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1, what is essentially an update to its recent update for Snow Leopard. It contains a typical round of stability, compatibility, and security fixes for Mac OS X, though apparently not enough to warrant a bump to 10.6.4. Included in v1.1 of 10.6.3 are improvements to QuickTime X, OpenGL-based apps, coloring messages in Mail, and printing reliability. This update also resolves issues with opening files with some special characters in Rosetta apps, color problems with HD content in iMovie, recurring events in iCal when connected to an Exchange server, and it improves performance of Logic Pro 9 and Main Stage 2 under 64-bit mode. Apple digs into greater detail in its release notes. Mac OS X 10.6.3 v1.1 weighs just over 785MB, but is strangely not available via Software Update. You can grab it as a Combo update from Apple's support site. Link: [url] Is there a reason why it isn't available via Software update?

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Software Update After Snow Leopard Clean Install discussions.apple.com

Today I performed a clean install of Snow Leopard on my late 2009 Mac Mini. After completing the installation, I began running software update to bring everything up-to-date.While software update did find and install a number of updates (10.6.8v1.1 Combo update, Security Update 2012-002, Apple Software Installer Update, iLife Support 9.0.4, Remote Desktop Client Update 3.5.3, Airport Utility, Java, Safari) it did not find an update for iTunes (which starts at version 9.x, I believe, in a SL clean install).I assumed that this was some sort of random glitch and manually downloaded and installed iTunes 10.6.3.After that, I re-installed iLife '11 (from a retail DVD, not the App Store).When I ran Software Update again, it found updates for Garage Band, iDVD, and iWeb, but it did not show the updates for iPhoto and iMovie.I found this to be unnerving, as I performed a clean install when I first obtained this Mini a few months ago and didn't experience any of these problems - all of my Apple software updated automatically through Software Update without a hitch.� I began researching this problem online and found that other people have been experiencing this same problem (or some variation of it), and it seems like it began appearing around the time Apple updated some of its security certificates in March.In particular, I've found several references to the missing iPhoto update.This one is especially noticeable because an iPhoto library created in iPhoto 9.2.3 will not open in iPhoto 9.0, and this generates an error upon opening the program (i.e., a user backs up their iPhoto library created in 9.2.3, performs a SL clean install, reinstalls iLife, goes through the Software Update process until it shows that no more updates are available, and are shocked to find that they are unable to open their backed up iPhoto library because they have an out of date version of iPhoto).The most common (and admittedly logical) solution proposed in the threads I've read is to download any necessary updates directly from the Apple website.� However, I am curious as to why this previously functional feature now appears to be broken.Has anyone else been struggling with this?  Does it indeed have something to do with the new security certificates? Is Apple aware of the problem? Info: Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

OS X :: Finding Software Update Dodgy Since Upgrade? forums.macrumors.com

Since upgrading from Jaguar to Leopard, I've been having no end of problems with Software Update. I installed to a clean drive from a 10.5.1 installation disk, but it gave old versions of iTunes and Safari, and Software Update showed that everything was current, even though 10.5.5 was available. I had to download all of those manually. After that, I got one Software Update list that was fairly long, and installed everything properly. But since then, it's gone wonky again. It takes about 10 minutes to figure out what updates are available, and then it refuses to download them, claiming that it can't find the update server and to make sure I'm connected to the internet. My attempt tonight didn't even show Safari 3.2.

Server V10.5 Leopard :: Installing XSAN 1.0 On Clean Install? discussions.apple.com

Has anyone had any luck installing Xsan 1.0 on Leopard 10.5 Server clean install? The only way I know of is installing 10.4 server, install xsan 1.0, software update xsan, then upgrade to 10.5 server. The problem with this is that the netinfo errors keep coming up after upgrading to 10.5 server. Information: 2 x 3 Ghz MacPro Mac OS X (10.5.6)

Hardware :: Unable To Use Scanner In An All-in-one Printer? forums.cnet.com

Esteemed List: I have an Epson Stylus CX6000 copier-printer-scanner. I have a newish Intel 2.13 GHz MacBook, OS 10.6.2 (Snow Leopard) with 2 GBs SDRAM and PhotoShop Elements 8. I migrated all my compatible software from a G4 12" PowerBook running OS 10.3.9, including the Epson software package - printer drivers, scanner, etc. - and the printer/copier works fine but neither Elements nor the laptop recognize the scanner software. The Epson site has a "complete" driver update for Snow Leopard that supposedly covers these issues. There is a warning that some parts of the drivers require OS 10.5, which this laptop never had. My question: is it safe to download and install these updated drivers? Do you have any suggestions?I do a fair amount of scanning work and need to access the Epson. White 2.13 GHz Macbook, OS 10.6.2, 2 GBs SDRAM; Epson Stylus CX6000, Epson Scan 2.90 software; Epson Printer Utility and Epson Printer Utility 2.

OS X :: Software Updates Without Restarting? forums.macrumors.com

Before Snow Leopard, I could just force quit a Software Update after it was done to avoid restarting. Now Apple makes it so I can't even use my computer while it is being updated. How does one keep Software Update in check? Treating me like a dumb computer user makes me seriously consider switching to Linux. I want my freedom back!

OS X Leopard :: Can't Get Past Login Screen Following Software Update discussions.apple.com

I've been using Leopard on my Mini for months quite happily and when last night the Apple software update window popped up I let it install as I have always done without a problem. My machine re-booted, went through installing the two updates and when it had finished re-booted again. Problem is I can't get past the login screen, the process goes like this... Switch on --> Grey screen with apple logo and swirly --> Wallpaper appears --> login window --> enter password --> login window says 'logging in' and dissapears --> Blue screen appears --> login window appears again. I've tried a safe-mode boot (hold down shift at boot) - no difference. I've tried single user mode (cmd + S) - no difference. I've even tried booting from the leopard install DVD (hold down C at boot) but my mac just ignores all this and goes through the process outlined above.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Getting An Alternative Server To Do Software Updates? discussions.apple.com

I currently am having my bandwidth to the Apple update server throttled. When I go to use the Software Update menu to download the updates it says that it will take 7 days to download a 200 mb update. If I go to the software download page in Safari, the same update downloads within minutes. Is there an alternative Apple update server address that I could switch to? Info: Mac OS X (10.7.3)

OS X :: Home Folder Showing As Removable Drive/media? forums.macrumors.com

On Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8 (Intel) and on a FileVault protected user my home directory is appearing as a removabile drive on my desktop and everywhere else. I had to reconfigure iTunes, Firefox and Camino both fail to start and not to mention other applications not being able to find my/their stuff. This started happening after I updated via the Software Update app a day or two ago.
