Updating mac os 10 2 8

Since Mac OS X 10.2.8 has been pulled from Apple's servers, several readers are wondering what they should do.

Ethernet Networking Problems, solutions Perhaps the most widely reported problem reported after updating to Mac OS X 10.2.8 is loss of network access.

In some cases, 100 Mbps Ethernet continues to work, but the 10 Mbps mode is disabled.

George Warner writes "The Mac OS X 10.2.8 update installed fine but I lost networking including ability to talk to my Apple Airport Extreme.

After some experimenting, I was able to determine that my Mac (Dual-500 G4) was not able to talk to my 10 Base-T network. A hub which provides a 10 to 100 bridge was able to band-aid my problem." The solution is to revert the Apple from the new version (1.3.0) to the 10.2.6 version (1.2.4) and reboot. You can pull this file from an older Mac OS X system that has not yet been updated, then replace it by booting into Mac OS 9 and overwriting the old file (which you should back up, just in case).

10 Base-T is the least common denominator on my LAN. Alternatively, a poster on Apple's Discussion boards has uploaded the old file to his Web server.

If you do not have Mac OS 9, here are more explicit instructions on how to perform this procedure from within Mac OS X: Note that some users report getting a message after the restart that the file is "incompatible and could cause security problems." Clicking the "Fix and Use" button and restarting will allow full functionality.Of course, the main problem is that many readers who need this fix are not able to access the Internet after performing the Mac OS X 10.2.8 update.If you know some fellow Mac users who might be experiencing the issue, you may want to bring them the old Apple file on a CD.Also, group of developers has written a tool that downgrades the Apple GMACEthernet component that is causing networking problems for some users of Mac OS X 10.2.8.From the description "This utility will only run under Mac OS X 10.2.8 and addresses an issue where ethernet access is lost after updating Mac OS X 10.2.6 to 10.2.8.You should only use this utility if you are having problems with your network connection.Fixamac Software cannot be held responsible for damage arising from the use of this software.Please make a backup of any important files before continuing with the installation.The Apple GMACEthernet Patcher will replace version 1.3.0 of the Apple file with version 1.2.4 installed with Mac OS X 10.2.6.At present, the impact of using an older version of the Apple file with Mac OS X 10.2.8 is unknown." More information, as well as the 84 KB download, are available here.While we have not received too many reports like this, Tim Buck reports instability after performing a downgrade of the Apple file: "I installed the Mac OS X 10.2.8 update on my G4 tower (Yikes motherboard) before it was pulled.
