Hello, first off, here's my stats
g4 powerbook
500 mhz
1gig sdram

ok, someone please help! Ever since downloading/installing latest update, my g4 now takes a VERY long time to start up. The color wheel (ball) spins for close to 2 minutes (feels like 5 minutes) before finally loading up bar at top of screen. I don't know what else to do, below is what I have tried so far:
1- Ran disk warrior
2- Reset pram
3- used disk utility to repair disk and permisions
4- Used apple care tech tool (hung up on me about 1.5 horus in)
5- did the " -fsck" thing

QUOTE Thanks
