And so the deMacification continues...
Authored by: Brad Puett on Nov 05, '01 01:56:13PM

The main problem I have with this whole "mistake" is that, for at least some of us, it' not fixed!! if I try to install iTunes 2.01 now, as soon as it reboots fromthe installation, I'm left with the "smiley mac face" starign at me from the screen, NO cursor at all, and a freeze that lasts until I force a hardware reset, and then force a PRAM reset, just to get back into 9.2.1!! I'm sorry, but this unacceptable!!

Especially since I'm getting a LOT more errors (roughly 10x) in my log files, plus 2 kernel panics (of which I have never had before this "installation"), which I can never get out of unless I force a hardware reset!!

In order to recover from the "installation", I had to:
a) Hardware reset (i.e. "paperclip")
b) PRAM reset (in order to allow me to boot into 9.2.1)
c) Delete everythig related to "iTune" on the "X" partition ...
d) Reinstall 10.1, using the 10.1 update CD
e) Boot (finally!) into 10.1, go to System Preferences, go to Login, and delete off the iTuneHelper program that was still selected (even though it didn't exist!)

Here's just 2 examples of the messages I'm now still getting:

I realize that more than a few people lost data, but what has me temporarily upset is that I've been given the impression by the major Mac Sites that the iTunes 2.01 package *fixed* all the problems, and Apple is no longer working on a solution! It's not fixed for some of us!!

(Sorry, but it's been a *very* frustrating weekend ...)
