    Cool
    Here is a couple of questions. You are at least running OS X 10.3 and not OS X 10.2?

    You do have enough space for the upgrade?

    And just to be sure you did repair permission be you tried to do the upgrade? This may not resolve you problem in your case, but you should repair permission before and after a upgrade.

    yes, i am running 10.3 which i just brought week ago.
    And i have plenty space for upgrating, the HD is left with 17G

    i can not catch your last part,And i think that would be the source of problem, can you explain to me how to do that.Should i login as root or admin, if i do, how can i login as root, as i am really new to mac, i think step by step is better :p

    I would just use Software Update when trying to update the OS.

    Cool
    Down load and use Mac OS X Combined Update 10.3.5 to update your system. Using the combo update tends to resolve most problems.

    As for repair permissions, go to your application folder -> utilities folder, and run the disk utitily application. When the application comes up select your system disk, then near the bottom select repair permissions.

    Maybe you do not have the correct permissions for the update, maybe mac os x.3.5 is already installed on there?

    Maybe it doesn't support s.m.a.r.t. technology (check the bottom box in disk utilities to see if it does - not that I would know if apple now requires smart though..)

    Maybe it's on holiday...

    the version of panther of my computer is 10.3.3,and i just can not find the place where you told me too check the S.M.A.R.T function.
    Or should i just use the software update ?

    To clarify: S.m.a.r.t. basically just checks to see if a disk is going to fail or not. If it is, smart will tell you in time, so you can back-up your files and replace the drive.

    Now I was just thinking that maybe mac osx is clever enough to check a disk's smart status before it installs itself there...

    Click on the physical drive (not the volume, i.e. the formatted area below it in the drive listing) and right at the bottom of the DU window it might say s.m.a.r.t. status: normal, or something like that. If it says smart status: critical, then that's your problem. If it doesn't say anything - then your drive can't check itself for faults, and then that's not the problem...


    Sorry for any confusion, but i suppose it beats the "have you repaired permissions and run crons" answer you normally get on mac boards

    i went to the utilities/disk utility and there are two drivers on the left hand side,one is Macintosh HD, and another is lable as 27.9GB FUJITSU and i click the FUJITSU driver, at the right bottom, there is a SMART status, it shows VERIFIED.
    thus is that consider as my hard disk problem?

    I think the problem is that you downloaded an update that requires 10.3.4. Download the Mac OS X Combined Update 10.3.5 which should be 88 MB in size.

    In the future, I would really suggest using Software Update for things like this, because it will ensure that your system meets all of the requirements before it displays the OS X update.
