I just installed the quicktime 7.4.5 and itunes 7.6.2 on my G4 Digital Audio and now I get the kernel panic screen. When I boot up holding down the option key I get a choice of my OS X and OS 9 hard drives and the Disk Warrior CD but the only command that works is Enter which boots up the highlighted disk which brings up the multi-language "Hosed" screen again. Stuck in kernel panic land.<br><br>GBR (OFI)
Additional info: OS 10.3<br><br>I hold the C key down to boot from the Disk Warrior disk and only get to the grey apple screen with the rotating circle.<br><br>I'll try the Tech Tool CD I have next, then if that doesn't work I'll have to work on it tomorrow when I can bring my OS install disks.<br><br>GBR (OFI)

Hmmm. No problems here other than I could not Restart, Shutdown, Logout from the Apple Menu after the install. Did a hard shutdown with the power button and then restarted. Seems fine now.

There have been a variety of weird reports on MacRumors--probably a vocal minority, but a perceptibly larger minority than usual, it strikes me. Enough to keep me away from this update for a while.<br><br>(I know some of the stink is because FrontRow no longer has to launch iTunes, it plays music by itself. Which is actually an improvement I've been wishing for myself. I can see both sides though.)<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net

Booting off any sort of diagnostic CD gets tougher and tougher in OS X. Must be hard to squeeze an operational OS onto a 650 MB CD. My DW CD can take over five minutes to get going. But I usually boot from an external 2.5" hard drive to run diagnostics anyway so it's not that big of a problem.<br><br>

It ain't easy. <br><br>I used to be able to go out with a wallet of cd's and dvd's to do stuff for folks. Anymore, i find it pretty necessary to just take the lappy and go right to target. <br><br><br>The Bill of Rights doesn't grant us our rights, it merely enumerates them.

I'm not sure what happened to cause the problem, but my OS X hard drive doesn't show up as an available disk to install or as an available boot disk when I go to select a Startup Disk. So I've booted up in OS 9 and since the OS X partition shows up there, I'm in the process of saving files I need to keep before I reinstall Mac OS X or replace the hard drive, depending on what condition I ultimately find the hard drive is in. The important thing I need to get a copy of is my email. I'm wondering what the best way will be to do that. I don't know that I have any choice but to copy the files to another location and then place them in a newly installed email on another drive. It's Mozilla Thunderbird so I think all I need to do is go to the Thunderbird folder in User/Library and copying that will get it all.<br><br>GBR (OFI)
