Fix for 10.0.2 'Optimizing' failure System
There have been some reports that the "Optimizing" step of the 10.0.2 update is failing for some people. It starts, but then just sits in the same spot for literally hours. A couple of different spots on the web are now reporting one possible source of trouble - an invisible file from Aladdin Systems. If your optimization fails, try this:

Boot into 9.1, and use Sherlock to find invisible files in the 9.1 System Folder that contain the word "Transaction". You may find one or two files named "Aladdin Transaction Info" or some variation on that name. If you do, delete them. Now reboot into X and try the update again; it should work fine, at least according to the reports I've seen.

I knew the problem was with a specific file when I could do the update_prebinding on all my directories except for my 9.1 system folder. Rather than isolate the specific file, I moved my syatem folder to another drive. Incidentally, I have since learned tthe benefits of having two 9.1 installs in a MacOS X setup. Have one optimized for X - few extensions, etc. - and another to run classic apps in X. This will greatly speed up classic launching.
