10.6: No way to save updates from Software Update
Authored by: larkost on Sep 30, '09 08:39:00AM
If you are trying to update multiple macs then you should go to and get the files from there. The ones you get from SoftwareUpdate can be tailored for the specific computer you are on and thus be missing things needed on other computers. The downloads can't make those determinations, and so are packed with everything needed for every computer. This is especially true of "dot updates" when it is best to download the "combo" (the largest) version.
