How many times must I restart (reboot) my PowerBook to install Java for Mac OS X 10.4 Release 5 from a fresh 10.4 install ? Plenty, too many times, really! Step 1: back up your data, Step 2: boot on the original Tiger DVD (10.4), Step 3: format (really format, with erase data) the hard disk, Step 4: Install the 10.4 base OS, Step 5: Install and reboot as needed: Mac OS X 10.4.8 Combo Update (PPC) Optional Installs (in the original DVD) X11 Update 2006 AirPort 4.2 for Mac OS X 10.4.2 AirPort Update 2005-001 iTunes 7.0.2 QuickTime 7.1.3 iChat Update 1.0 (PPC) Security Update 2006-007 Tiger (10.4) Security Update 2006-008 Tiger (10.4) Security Update 2007-001 Security Update 2007-002 Tiger Last step: Install Java: Java 1.3.1 and 1.4.2 Release 2 J2SE 5.0 Release 4 (PPC) Java for Mac OS X 10.4 Release 5 And you’re done (no reboot in the Java installs). Sorry, I do not know the time the process tooks. I think it is time to get 10.4.9 (if all of the above is rolled in it). BTW: I do not talk about the iTunes Phone Driver (not found in the Download pages), and at this report writing time, I do not have access to the internet, so I do not know if I missed one update; however, the last full update (back in mid January 2007) I created a special folder with all needed updates and I have added to that the ones that went after that date! BTW: the target machine is a PowerBook G4 15", 1.5GHz, 512MB/80MB Alu (from 08-2004). A re-read some days later let me sense a bad feeling in my writing. If you too read it that way, remove that feeling and try to take it a "report to go in the good way" :) [sorry] HTH, Emile PS: after a check online, it happens that I had to install Daylight Saving Time Update (Tiger) too dispite what is said in the Java for Mac OS X 10.4 Release 5 ReadMe file (add one reboot for this install; and this is a 9.5MB Installer package file!). _______________________________________________ Do not post admin requests to the list.
