10.4: Security Update 2008-06 and Network preferences
Authored by: fate2012 on Jun 18, '11 07:02:20PM

Does anyone know when we do a Tiger 10.4 reinstall from scratch and then update to 10.4.11 - how can we tell what security update this update has within itself?

the reason for asking is when trying to obtain a Torrent client (and it seems like everyone in the world thinks that the rest of the world actually uses new computers) - the version required emphasized having Mac security update 2008-002 for 10.4.11 Mac o/s

this Mac requires an older Torrent client because it is in need of some older software that only some very helpful (Pirate Bay) providers can give (no thanks to Steve Jobs or Bill Gates - they have both been lost to capitalism)

only the old software works on my 1.5GHz PPC G4 Mac (provided Adobe or some other nasty new crap doesn't automatically make settings changes that can't be reversed)

supposed to make sure to have Mac security update 2008-002, but all I know is that my computer has 10.4.11

the application this Mac will be trying to utilize will eventually be torrent client "Transmission" (version 1.52 apparenty was the last to support this Mac with 10.4.11)

and then when that torrent app works (Transmission 1.52 or__?)
- only then can it download what is actually needed = some old music mixing DJ software

(older version of virtual dj that will work on my Mac 10.4.11 tiger PPC)

it's amazing how good this computer still is with 2GB Ram, and the only reason i lost everything and had to reinstall was because Adobe decided to auto install some new flash that screwed my whole computer up for work somehow

if someone can tell how one would know what security update is within this old gem of a computer, or please tell how to revert to 2008-002 that could be appreciated

please don't answer goto "about this Mac - more info" or "software update - preferences - installed updates:" because it ends up saying this:
April 16th 2011 (install date) Mac OSX update combined (powerPC) version10.4.11

maybe the install date leads us to know what security update could perhaps be contained within this MAc os version... i don't know, and not sure even if the music software developers care to help, but this
computer can be designated in the entertainment room for music mixing instead of being thrown out - that is certain

3 things

1. need a torrent client that works for this old mac, and some (well over 8 hrs) research says get an older version from Transmission (available here at, but which one is a total mystery (chats have suggested vr 1.52 was the last support for this old mac, but alas - it didn't launch)

2. need old music mix software that works for this old mac, and some (well over 12 hrs) research says get virtual_dj_pro_5.0_beta3 for mac. This wasn't easy to narrow down, so if anyone knows wtf will work on this old mac then lets hear it.

3. if Transmission 1.52 is the torrent client answer in order to download the torrent file for the old music mixing software, then the last thing is that it (the torrent app 1.52) requires security update to be 2008-002 in order to work - so how do we know what security update we have in our Mac?

No lame reply from 10.5 Leopard users please - remember this is to avoid recycling, and dedicate an old Mac computer to our activity room beside the outdoor hot tub at our log cabin in Whistler, BC.

this has been a lot of work, so please trust that this could help someone else one day in the future

thanks in advance from the mountains in Whistler, BC
