Mac OS X 10.2.8 Returns

Send Article to a Friend

Mac OS X 10.2.8 Returns -- Late last week, Apple posted a new Mac OS X 10.2.8 Update, replacing one that was released and then quickly pulled after causing significant troubles on many machines (see "Mac OS X 10.2.8 Comes and Goes" in TidBITS-699). The new update for computers running Mac OS X 10.2.6 or 10.2.7 (the latter available only on some new Macs such as the recently released 15-inch PowerBook G4) is available as a 38.9 MB download via Software Update and as a standalone installer. A Mac OS X 10.2.8 Update (Combo) version is available as a 97 MB download, and updates Mac OS X 10.2 and higher.

For users who installed the first Mac OS X 10.2.8 update, Apple has also posted a separate updater via Software Update, the Mac OS X Update 10.2.8 (Build 6R73) with an updated Ethernet driver and an update to the battery status menu; it is a 248K download. And lastly, owners of Power Mac G5 machines require a different updater that works only on those models, the Mac OS X 10.2.8 (G5) Update, which is a 13 MB download. [JLC]
