Issues with OS X10.6.4

by GraydonP / June 17, 2010 4:56 AM PDT

Since upgrading on Tuesday night, My mail has been crashing every time I try and compose, and/or, send an email.
Also, the hard drive is running continuously, almost as if Time Machine was running or it was defragging.
And, some programs, i.e. Second Life, just freeze on start-up.

if you did it through Software update

I would try a combo. Usually, it is the safest bet.

Combo Updater?

Can a combo be re-applied to an update again?

By all means

I would also repair permissions before and after. Combo can be reapplied as many times as needed. Never heard about any adverse events with it. Incremental updates are not that good, so the general contention is that a combo is much preferable.
