    Software update on 10.3.9

    Just reinstalling OS X on a few old iBooks we're giving away, wanted to get everything up to date, and while software update did all the OS updates, java, airport etc it seems to refuse to do application updates? Nothing appears - it says everything is up to date yet it clearly isnt

    Thus, iTunes is stuck at version 4 and Safari is out of date too. If I try and download them manually, no download starts on the download page and no link appears either.

    Is there something I need first on 10.3 before it'll detect the missing updates

    I'll have one I don't mind if the apps are a little out of date.

    Could you download them on a different machine and then install the packages from a USB Stick or DVD?

    Haha...you'd be welcome to one if there wasnt such fierce demand for them here! Never seen teachers and students go so mad for old kit before! Glad to see it all go to good use though

    Yeah will probably just do that, but its annoying. Restoring an eMac in the same way now, will be interesting to see if it does the same

    Ok think I realise why its not working now: latest versions of Safari and iTunes are for Leopard & Tiger only. Quite why Apple cant offer the last compatible versions instead of nothing, I dont know
