A script to install all required Software Updates
Authored by: CyeZ on Jan 12, '09 07:23:58AM

This script initially didn't seem to work for me on a new Mac Pro. After some debugging I figured out the network cards weren't properly initialized yet by the time `softwareupdate -l` was being run.

Adding 'sleep 15' just above the pmset was enough to get things working as expected.

I too was not having success getting this to run on a MBP 2.6Ghz w/SSD. It rebooted 2 or 3 times in 30 seconds then had a blank screen and glowing white power LED on the front. Adding 22 seconds above the pmset line did the trick as well.
