Active Directory?
Authored by: Flash BIOS on Feb 19, '02 08:48:59PM

Does anyone know how the Active Directory authentication works? Directory Setup (version 1.2) doesn't list it, and it doesn't show up in the help. It sure would be nice to authenticate on the network at work.

Doesn't fix stuttering audio on dp/1ghz
Authored by: cyberzine on Feb 19, '02 10:58:43PM

Damn. I (and several other Dual Proc 1ghz users) have an issue where the machine stutters audio playback when connected to the net by Airport. This goes away when connected by ethernet. It's reproduceable, and was solved for the dp/800 machines with 10.1.1. I was SOOO hoping this would solve it for me. Oh well. Anyone else with this?

Authored by: toddsnc on Feb 22, '02 11:48:29AM

on my TiBook (667MHz/Combodrive/512MB) it is much improved over 10.1.2. Still very dependent on background tasks' use of the processor however. But if I want to sit downstairs and plug the Mac into my stereo and tap into my MP3 collection upstairs without putting many other demands on the computer it's fine. (This was asking too much of 10.1.2.)

Breaks ZiO's New 10.1.2 Drivers

Breaks ZiO's New 10.1.2 Drivers
Authored by: loren_ryter on Feb 19, '02 11:55:53PM

Apple really needs to do two things:

1) provide a real list of what has changed, both in layman's terms and the precise files

2) make an uninstaller available to revert to previous verison.

Breaks ZiO's New 10.1.2 Drivers
Authored by: nordy on Feb 20, '02 01:39:54AM

Microtech posted their new drivers for the USB CameraMate on Feb 19. This was to update their old drivers that got broken with the 10.1.2 update. Now the new OS X 10.1.3 update breaks their new update.

This must be exceedingly frustrating for peripheral makers to have a moving target like this. Doesn't Apple keep them in the loop as to what is going on. There is no profit in this for them. We keep harping on companies to support OS X, but I guess I can't blame them for going slow on their updates with this track record.

I have the USB CameraMate and got it working. The user, mmelder, found the solution when he upgraded to 10.1.3 without ever upgrading the old Microtech drivers. First, you have to clean out the existing drivers. Go to /System/Library/Extensions in the terminal and clear out the two directories that start with eUSB:
sudo rm -r eUSB*

Next, grab the version 1.02 drivers here:

Install the drivers, reboot, and enjoy!

When Software update was installing and optimising 10.1.3 i was unable to launch any applications. They would unexpect edly quit and the console would display some info. I believe this is what it said but i am unsure of the correct log to retreive it from.

Strange events while installing
Authored by: jokke on Feb 20, '02 03:46:31AM

After reading your post, I tried launching Preview while the installer was optimizing and had the same result: Preview would not launch and I got all sorts of error messages in my system.log [of the kind kCGErrorIllegalArgument: some-sort-of-command]. Furthermore, my Explorer failed to display popup-menus [among others giving the error WindowServer[74]: CGXOrderWindow: Invalid window 0].
Then my Dock suddenly died and trying to open a new window in the Terminal failed as well. I guess the update is messing with a lot of system stuff, including the WindowServer. Those one-click-one-reboot updaters a giving Apple some trouble it seems.
Now I'm just hoping to post this reply and that my system will boot properly.

Authored by: jokke on Feb 20, '02 04:01:15AM

More things happened after I posted the previous article. I guess I should have waited for the installer to finish...
When the installer was done, Explorer exited abruptly, then when I clicked Restart, the installer died. Choosing Restart from the Apple menu didn't work. Again lots of errors in the log. The only way I got back was by typing 'sudo reboot' from the Terminal, which - thank god - was stille alive.
Luckily everything seems to be working again.

Strange events while installing
Authored by: Fritz on Feb 20, '02 11:29:21AM

I am wondering how many of you folks that have been experiencing trouble have installed things like Fink, Xfree86, Open SSH etc... I have none of those things yet installed but have been real close to doing that this week.

I have a little iMac DV SE graphite G3 400 that I have been using with the ram bumped up to a gig. I had no problems with the 10.1.3 upgrade at all. This thing is impressive in its handling OSX so far.

Anyhow just curious

I had no problem installing 10.1.3, and I am a total fink junkie. I'd be concerned with peoples' installations of GNU-Darwin material, though, since it replaces Apple-installed components like OpenSSH. (Fink installs these items in another directory and then changes system settings to prefer those components over the Apple ones.)

Strange events while installing
Authored by: clmensch on Feb 20, '02 10:44:15PM

I too encountered something odd. During "optimization", my TiBook 550 completely froze. The mouse cursor still worked, but there was no response from anything else. I had IE, Terminal, X3, Launchbar, and BBEdit running...probably not too smart. I let it sit for a couple of minutes just to see if it would come back from its catatonic state, but it never did. So, I took a deep breath and ctrl-apple-powered it. The machine seemed to reboot fine with the exception of some invalid leaf nodes in what appeared to be some temp files during the filesystem check. But, it brought me back to the login panel and the system now reports 10.1.3 is installed.

I'm curious about what happens during "optimization". Am I missing out that this process didn't complete? Is there a way to optimize again? What's the best way to verify that the installation was actually complete? Perhaps I should download the update and try again...but I'm afraid that might be dangerous.

I looked at some logs, and found some interesting entries:

I don't know what these services do exactly, but these seemed to occur during installation and optimization of 10.1.3. Also, these lines were in console.log:

Got very similar messages myself. Been trying to track it down for the last few days. No luck yet, and no mention anywhere i can find regarding 'RulebookServers'. The applications listed are both complaining, then throwing the complaint after a timeout, so some link or pipe isn't being made.

Any help appreciated.

i tried to update to 10.1.3 this morning and about 2 thirds of the way through i was told i had a software error and that if i clicked cancel and then install again it would start the download from where i left of. It didn't and it just kept saying i had a software error, not to bad u say, just try again, well when one has a 56k modem and your paying for every minute you use, being told that u can't finish the download is pissing off, has anyone else had this problem? thanks

Authored by: The Gimp on Feb 20, '02 10:18:44AM

I had this problem trying to update to 10.1.2 on a G4/450. My white iBook updated fine but the desktop would not. Somewhere between 10.1 and 10.1.2, I dorked-up the file permissions at the top-level of my drive (made myself owner of the drive). Everything seemed fine except small anomolies, most noticeably not being able to update any software. I wound up having to back-up my personal files and start from scratch. After waxing everything, all upgrades have gone without a hitch.

10.1.3 update ok on my ibook
Authored by: russ_jacobson on Feb 20, '02 08:53:08AM

From looking at lots of comments most seem to have no trouble with this update so I downloaded and it works fine for me as well. Using a dual USB ibook (500 Mhz, CD only) 320 Megs ram. Tested a bunch of software to see if any problems but all work fine. While I do not have any stats to prove this I agree with comments I have seen on web by some that it seems to speed up things a bit. Windows (for me) open much faster, as do most apps when not loading some monster file.

Looks like this should be a winner for most, but obviously some are not finding that so. Just wanted to add my comments as one who had no problems after installing and testing.

10.1.3 update ok on my Ti
Authored by: outofcontrol on Feb 20, '02 10:07:16AM

Just to add that all went well on my Ti 400. Downloaded upgraded and got up and running very quickly with no problems.

I do notice a great improvement in launching OS X during the service startups. I have a fair number of services and it used to be quite slow getting over sendmail. It simply flies over all the services now.

I also noticed an improved awake from sleep. It would sometimes take up to a minute to awake from a deep sleep. It is almost instant now. This is with password protected sleep.

It also left alone all my customization on my laptop which is quite nice.

So we are happy over here.

10.1.3 update ok on my ibook
Authored by: phildobbin on Feb 20, '02 03:51:56PM

10.1.3 also installed fine on my iMac 500/L2 256K @ 500Mhz/256MB RAM in just under an hour via 56K modem from Software Update. Mine also seems faster (when I upgraded from 10.1.1 -> 10.1.2, it seemed to lose some speed but now that seems to have come back). All systems are good (Classic fine; am still running 9.2.1) and still do not find I need to upgrade Applescript from 1.8.1 to 1.8.2b.
Am quite pleased. Not major or minor SNAFU's and roll on 10.2.
Also December Developer Tools still work perfectly (PB, IB and ASS).
Nice one, Apple.

i'm not surprised.
Authored by: charlietuna on Feb 20, '02 10:19:10AM

we shouldn't be surprised when programs don't work right when updating, especially during optimization. redo_ and update_prebinding--i believe--rewrites parts of the application files, and if these applications are running, surely there's the potential to mess things up. (please tell me if i'm wrong about how prebinding works, because i've never seen a clear answer so i'm only working from assumptions made during my poking around in the terminal.)

i really think it's a bad idea to play with your machine during an update. true--i have no hard evidence to prove my case except this:

i've always had smooth updates with os x. i've also left the computer alone to do its work.

the people here who are having problems seem to be the same ones who continue to use high-level applications during the process.

since the updates require a reboot anyway, why doesn't apple just write the software updater to download the update, reboot into single-user mode, install the update, and reboot into multi-user mode?

DVD Playback on VGA display STILL not working
Authored by: redfusion on Feb 20, '02 10:34:30AM

I was quite excited this morning to see that the latest update included support for "DVD Playback on external VGA displays on PowerBook G4"... unfortunately it doesn't seem to work! I still get a pop-up box from DVD Player telling me my machine configuration isn't supported.

Has anyone else experienced a similar result after installing 10.1.3?

DVD Playback on VGA display STILL not working
Authored by: e_clark on Feb 20, '02 01:17:05PM
I had similar problems running the DVD player app on my PBG4, only the app refused to run at all, giving that "Configuration not supported" error. It turns out I had changed ownership on the app and it's files, and that's why it was refusing to run. I used
sudo chown -R root.admin "DVD Player.app"

to fix the problem, and it seems to work fine now.

DVD Playback on VGA display STILL not working
Authored by: JustyTylor on Feb 20, '02 08:12:15PM

Yeah, I was misled by this as well. I let the AppleCare Knowledgebase know that they're reporting wrong information if they tell us that it's fixed, especially when it's apparently broken for other, G4-Tower based dual monitor configurations as well (there's a guy on MacCentral who says that DVD support on his tower because he has two 17" monitors.)

It does work, but there's a trick!
Authored by: pete_yandell on Feb 20, '02 09:48:11PM

It all depends on monitor resolutions.

I have an original Powerbook G4 (400MHz) with an Apple 21" monitor connected and set as my main display.

If I switch the 21" down to 1152x870 and have both monitors in thousands of colours, I can play DVDs in a window on the 21".

If I then switch the laptop screen down to 800x600 stretched, I can play DVDs full screen on the 21".

Yes, this sucks, and I don't know why I can't drag the DVD player window onto the laptop screen, and wouldn't it be nice if the DVD player worked this out for you and popped a box saying that you should switch resolutions? But hell, it's better than the reboot I had to do before.

Good Hint, Thanks Pete!
Authored by: JustyTylor on Feb 21, '02 12:35:10AM

Yeah, it's a pain, but at least it works in some capacity. Now if they could just get it supported without us worrying about Thousands or Millions of colors (Near as I can tell, the "main" display--that is, the one you want to view DVDs on--can be in millions of colors, but you *have* to put the LCD panel into Thousands. I'm currently running my PowerBook G4 LCD panel in native resolution with thousands of colors, and my TV is in 640x480 in millions of colors. There are probably issues with VRAM allocation or something. Now, if only they'd allow overscanning... And, of course, I'm still damn impressed at how smooth DVD 3.0's playback is: not a single stutter.

Okay, on my dual 800 Without superdrive, I can't burn a disk from the finder IF the disk name includes a space. I don't think it was like this before...

The good news is that it dies with an error before it burns anything, so the disk isn't wasted.

external monitor woes
Authored by: winks on Feb 20, '02 10:06:24PM

After much hassle, under 10.1.2 I was able to use my external monitor and have not only the lid on my TiBook closed, but the LCD *off* -- it appears that this is no longer possible with 10.1.3. If anyone has been able to get it to work, or would like to share a working recipe to actually getting the ability to use an external monitor with the lid closed and LCD off, *please* speak up.

The methods I have tried are the sleep/usb-attach-keypress which never worked, and the quick-close-lid-after-chime approach, which worked until "upgrading" to 10.1.3.

external monitor woes

You're not alone, but you are, for the near future at least, sh*t out of luck. On both usenet and apple boards, everyone is reporting this problem. It's pretty unbelievable how a system can go BACKWARDS on an update.

One individual did get Apple on the phone. They are aware of the problem, they WERE aware of it BEFORE the release, they apparently left it up to us to "discover" it (thanks Apple, jerks!), and they don't know when or what, if anything, they're going to do about it.

The only solution I've seen that made any sense was to reinstall 10.1.x from your CD, then reupdate to 10.1.2. In theory, this requires much less hassle in the X environment, so if that half-closed glowing TiBook screen bothers you, it's the only recourse you have for now.

infrared seems to be improved too

One thing that is not mentioned anywhere (yet):
On my PB G4/550 Combo, with 10.1.2 I was able to connect to my Nokia 8210 via Infrared,
but only once after every restart. The second attempt it would hang there searching forever.

Now with 10.1.3 it works without a problem. Connect, hang up, connect, hang up,
just as it should.

mouse not working after OSX update

Crashed during the update? Errr...hate to be the dark demon of bad news...but that ain't good. Chances are you will want to re-install the OS. You can try downloading the stand-alone update of MacOS 10.1.3 (get it from www.versiontracker.com) and try re-installing the update. However, I'm not sure if this is possible without mouse control. The easiest route will be to just install the OS from the MacOS 10.1 update CD and then use the Software Update panel to bring everything up to speed. It should leave all your preferences alone, so you shouldn't lose anything. Good luck!

Jim.
