10.4: Fix a Bluetooth/SideTrack issue in 10.4.7 System 10.4
After upgrading to 10.4.7 here this week, I found that my Bluetooth connectivity had dropped off entirely. When opening System Preferences and navigating to the Bluetooth panel, the app would hang and I'd have to force quit. Also, no previously-paired Bluetooth device was able to be discovered by my PowerBook G4. Very unnerving to say the least.

As it turns out, following a bit of digging, I discovered that my (much out of date) version of SideTrack was somehow conflicting with the new updates. Once I grabbed the latest version (1.4.1 as of this morning) and installed it, the conflict has been resolved!

Hopefully this helps those out there who have an older version of SideTrack and are experiencing this hard-to-resolve problem.

[robg adds: SideTrack is one of my laptop must-haves, but it's a replacement driver for the default trackpad driver in the OS. As such, system updates can occasionally break it, and remaining current is quite important -- much more so than with an application that would probably just fail to launch if it was affected by an OS update.]

I shifted from Side Track to iScroll because it offered 2-finger scrolling, which if memory serves (age!!) SideTrack did not. iScroll is one of my 'must-have's until I cough up for a MBP. iScroll has also had a recent update.
