Via software update:

The 10.2.2 Update delivers enhanced functionality and improved reliability for the following applications and technologies: Address Book, iChat, IP Firewall, Mail, Print Center, Rendezvous, Sherlock and Windows file service discovery. The update also includes the updated services previously delivered in Security Update 2002-09-20.

Seems fine to me. No major surprises or problems. Looks like an under the hood release along with the ability to enable journaling (doubt I will enable this though as it has a 10% performance penalty and OS X is not known as a speed demon).

1 GHz powerbooks are also available in Apple Stores in the US. Expect em at CompuSmart by 2003 :(

10.2.2

Here are a couple of my favorite things included in this update.

Thank you Apple.

• Addresses an issue in which an iDisk would appear with an inaccurate 1GB capacity and 1023 MB available
• Adds support for additional third-party disc burners, including: LaCie d2 48x24x48x
• Reduces occurrences of "missing text" when browsing some web pages. I get this on the ehMac site.
• Reduces the time required for switching between Sherlock channels


Successful smooth update.

In simple terms, what is journalling?

There's an explanation of what a journaled file system (JFS) is here. Simply put, the benefit of running a JFS is that if your computer ever crashes, then your filesystem isn't corrupted. The only drawback that I can think of is that a JFS is slower than a regular FS.

Updated to X.2.2 and no apparent change for me...

As for journaled, perfect for businesses paranoid of a crash (but why would OS X crash? ;) )

More security for the business side... Apple must definitely be trying to win more ppl over

Assuming OS X doesn't crash (ha ha), there's always power failures and hardware failures.

Also more important for Servers.

Yes, the Journalling is a feature more targeted at server users. In fact, i think there is a button is OS X Server 10.2.2 to enable it, and in OS X Client 10.2.2 it has to be enabled in the terminal.

On a good server there are two main things that are usually included. Monitoring and redundancy.

One thing that I have been reading lately about the Xserve is that while the monitoring is far above average, he redundancy is not. The journalling option is a step in the right direction in this regard.

Yep, I forwarded my post at ehMac's Emergency Room to MacFixIt, so now at least more people know about it and maybe it will be resolved sooner.

Bjornbro,

Do you have any HP printer drivers installed for USB connected HP printers? It seems that there is a major incompatibility with certain HP USB drivers and it slows some systems to a crawl. I don't know about effects on iSub though. My iMac doesn't have this problem under 10.2.2. There's info on this at MacInTouch. HP laserprinter drivers seem OK (at least for me).

I haven't had any issues with 10.2.2 but it never does much harm to wait a couple of weeks for the impetuous early adoptors (like me) to experience any problems.....

In a word, no. My problem began with the advent of the latest update (yesterday). I was hoping someone else out there with an iSub could confirm this problem,

Hmmm...... Our iMac DV SE 400 MHz, 384 Mb RAM OS 10.2.2 is having no problems with iSub operation Or anything else). I have a USB hub and its plugged into that.

I'm sorry I can't offer any insight into your bug.

A couple little glitches here too!

One Kernel Panic ( Very polite but still a panic )

iDisk is also giving me -36 error (off and on)

Tried iPhoto - share a homepage and have not been able to connect. I can connect via .Mac and my web browser.

Random IE spinning pinwheel, it just keeps going and going and going.
