    10.6.4 - How are you finding it?

    Hi
    I just installed the latest build (600mb wth!) and so far I have found things a little more sluggish on boot. After a couple of clean boots things still dont appear to load as fast.
    Hows everyone else finding it?

    Hrm it was very late last night I installed it, must have misread maybe. I assume they are all the same size for all users and not hardware specific?

    Could well be Hardware specific.

    I've just installed it on my MacBook = 224MB and 315MB on my iMAC.

    Definitely hardware, and to a degree, existing software dependant. Older model Mac's will usually require a larger download for big updates such as this. I'm still holding off on 10.6.4 for a few days at least. Will wait and see what happens with it first! Apple updates don't normally cause too much of a problem, but I still never like to jump in and update straight away.

    Yeh tbh I did think it would be stupid to put all the macbook etc drivers in one huge download rather then specific.
    I have a i5 mbp and nvidia drivers are not usually small knowing them.

    Just to update this - no noticeable slow downs for me, only been using it for 30 mins or so.

    It seems okay when booted but booting did seem slower. I will try another reboot and see how it goes. What hardware do you have?

    I'm having similar issues with my MBP too seems noticeably more sluggish as it boots but once booted and the OS loaded it seems fine was also over 600MB.

    iMac update wasn't as large but more interestingly it doesn't seem to suffer the same fate as the MBP, it may be an issue related just to the MBP whatever it is it needs sorting!!!

    enter terminal an enter

    sudo periodic daily

    This runs a cleanup script that is scheduled to run daily by the system itself. However due to the time it is supposed to run (3am) most laptops are not on. This may help.

    Also you could try

    sudo periodic weekly

    and

    sudo periodic monthly


    Also you could try resetting the PRAM, although this is only usually for power management i think

    press the power button and then on boot hold down P, R and the  and alt keys. You should see a grey screen and then it will reboot and chime again.

    Don't blame me though if anything breaks. Use at your own risk.
