A script to install all required Software Updates

Interesting, but what about combo updates?

A script to install all required Software Updates
Authored by: phillymjs on Sep 19, '08 08:20:12PM

Combo updates don't include everything. When you rebuild a Tiger machine from scratch, for example, there's Quicktime, iTunes, Java... many of which don't show up in Software Update until a prerequisite update is installed. This script just keeps installing and rebooting until there's nothing left.

Worked on Leopard, but not on Tiger
Authored by: alastor933 on Feb 21, '09 07:50:11AM

I used this with great success on a new install of Leopard, a few weeks ago.
Yesterday I tried it on a fresh Tiger install, with no luck.

The script runs, and the Mac reboots right away. When the startup window comes up it reboots again before the window is fully up. The 2nd time it boots 'normally'; no message in login window, no updates installed.

Any help would be appreciated - I know next to nothing of UNIX, but using Terminal doesn't scare me.

Thanks.
