I just booted into Mac OS 9 to do some GoLive work, and for the heck of it decided to run Software Update -- I'm now downloading the 9.2.2 update. Hope they don't have to retract this updater.

Macnn says (note double quote)
As anticipated yesterday, Apple has released its Mac OS 9.2.2 update via the Software Update Control Panel. The update "improves Classic application compatibility in Mac OS X and delivers updated support for Macintosh systems that are based on the PowerPC G3 or G4 processor."

What updated support is this?

GoLive 5 under 10.1.1 is just as slow as ever. Not that I'm really expecting anything until the new GoLive in the March or so.

Golive 6 beta has some bugs = slower than golive 5 in classic :-(

it is a very specific bug so I think they will fix it with ease...

Downloaded 9.2.2 from Versiontracker. Burned a copy to CD. Installed onto my iMac DVSE 400. Went without a hitch. (OS X not on this machine yet.)

Will now attempt to update my iBook 500 with 9.2.1 and OS X on it.

This has been a good couple of weeks. Office X, Virtual PC 5 and now 9.2.2.

Kenneth,

Forgot about FCP 3 and that was maybe the biggest yet!

Tried to install 9.2.2 onto my iBook which also has OSX 10.1.1 from the downloaded installer from versiontracker. As I said above this worked great on my iMac which does not have OSX.

It would not install. Said it fixed something on my disk. Then it said I did not have drive setup and something else which I do not recall but it was something about the install engine. Hit cancel and then it would not let me out of the OS install setup. Had to hold down the power key and then turn it back on. Disk Utility took a long time after I turned it back on.

Went to the control panel when under OS 9. Clicked on software update. Noticed that I had to install Authoring support and OS 9.2.2. Did AS first then restart. Then did OS 9.2.2. Worked like a charm.

Appears that everything is fine.

9.2.2 installed fine for me, but it disabled EnterNet 300. In the thread about the release on the front page I found out that EnterNet 300 tweaks some extensions & since the OS upgrade upgrades the extensions it causes you to reinstall EnterNet 300, which is no problem at all really.

Thank you for the info MacNN reader Forums! Good to hear this isnt Apple's fault. :-) And yes, 9.2.2 seems "snappier"!
In Christ,

Downloaded from versiontracker, installed on three partitions, works fine. I cannot tell much difference, except that maybe apps load faster in classic. Since I haven't used classic much it's difficult to say.

I just picked up FCP3 today...WOW! That's all I can say. In OS X it looks utterly stunning. I wan't to play with it just because the design and control sare so gorgeous. Anyways I'll be using it to edit and master porn flicks on my powermac, and I'm still amazed at how cheap a "studio" costs! For FW digital movie camera and FCP3, the total was very cheap.

Best part of all is that when chicks come over to see me editing the films, my computer desk is set up right in my bedroom...it leads to some very interesting editing sessions.

They really must start another forum for this sort of thing. I wouldn’t bother reading OS X general ever again if we had a MAC AS PORN TOOL forum!
Nothing to see, move along.

When one gets the message "your software is up to date" is there any way to determine that it means what it says? I am running 9.2.1 on an iMac DVD but, as far as I know, any G3 or G4 Mac should be updated, Or maybe not.......

I haven't had the Photoshop-boots-up-Classic-with-blank-menu-bar problem since upgrading to 9.2.2. Before every once in a while it would load Photoshop but I couldn't do anything because the menu bar had nothing in it. I had to exit and then restart it to get the menu bar.

OTOH, Classic apps seem to exit much more slowly now. Several seconds longer now.

By the way, the software updater doesn't work in Classic. It said my software was up to date. When I rebooted to 9.2.1 then it said I could update it.

I DLed 9.2.2 via Apple KBase link and installed w/o any problems. Initial operation seems a bit faster than 9.2.1.

The following morning I tried to open a PDF file, and the OS (9.2.2) tried to launch Acrobat Reader 5 but no luck. It started to launch then it never finished. I had had full mouse movement but no control. I had to force quit to regain control of my system. Acrobat Reader 4 works fine.

I only had problems updating from 9.2.1 to 9.2.2. After the initial update on my interal HD which was running 9.2.1 (which it said was succesful) only resulted in a type 10 error and system bombs during startup... IT WOULDN'T BOOT! So then I tried to boot from OS X which was on an external HD... It wouldn't even find the OS X system when i held down the option key at boot... So i was force to choose it's classic system on the same drive. This was also futile, it started booting like normal but then an Unimlimented Trap system error bomb... Now i was starting to freak out. But luckily I have a backup system partition on the external drive which gets updated semi regularly. It booted fine without a problem. I reran the updater on the internal and the classic dead systems. I then rebooted on the internal and it worked. Needless to say this update sucked... and get this, my classic STILL won't load. Whenever I tried to load Classic, it said that the Mac OS ROM image was missing or damaged. But (correct me if i'm wrong) you can't load Mac OS 9 if the ROM is missing which was not the case. I've had this problem ever since I installed 10.1. So go figure... I think my system just needs to be backed up and then wiped... *SIGH*
