  • [Rumor] OS X 10.5.7 Friday - Last Stop to Snow Leopard!


    Mac|Life reports via "a source" that OS X 10.5.7 will be seeded to everyone's Software Update on friday. With the development of OS X 10.5.7 seemingly winding down we're hoping that Snow Leopard 10.6.* in all its Grand-Central-multi-core-optimization-OpenGL-tons-of-RAM-make-everything-fly goodness is right around the corner (perhaps at WWDC in June).
    If you've been champing at the bit for the magic of 10.5.7, according to a super-secret Apple source, your champing can cease on Friday. The newest version of Leopard is slated to fix a slew of networking, syncing and bluetooth issues.

      I hope the wifi is improved !!! Mine is so sketchy :-/ I have to turn off and back on the airport every 20 min some days.. I think it's the upnp or whatever that I have open on the router but it makes torrents so much faster.. I think it's just some auto mappin of ports but when I turned it off I still had some issues and alot less speed. any one else have these problems? I have a white plastic macbook 10.5.6 I think? any input would be helpfull I have done some googlin and found it's not that uncommon so there's gonna be some people who share my hopes of a better OSX. let me know what works if u have had any luck

      Sounds great. The current build is buggy as hell. I am glad I just have it on a usb drive and not as my main os.

      Start with the following link to check your hardware compatibility. If you have no clue what hardware you're running that's a bad sign.

      i have heard that it is not going to be 10.5.7 and it will be 10.6

      although it doesnt make any sense to release it at such a weird time and we have seen the need for 10.5.7 for notes syncing... i have just heard things :P

      Hey man Banhammr Immune? HAHA. Well if anyone deserves it, it is you. I agree, it is weird timing.

      If you installed the update (I think 7.4.1, but not at home to confirm) for airport, revert back to before the update. I installed the update and had to restart mine all the time, too. Once going back to before the update I have not had to restart my airport at all. I will wait for the next update to fix whatever bug is causing the problems before updating again.

      Most gigabyte motherboards can run vanilla mac os using any of the commonly available distributions... That's all I'll say about that.

      Try turning off IPv6 in the airport by setting it to "Link Local" once I did this, stability returned. Not certain, but I think may be related to PC's on my home network. I've got a mix of mac os and XP
