Hello all

I upgraded yesterday on my G5 PPC 1.8ghz single processor 4 gigs of ram from OS X 10.4.11 to OS X 10.5.6. Alls was working, but I started up today and it loads the apple symbol, goes to the spinning and freezes? I never had this problem in 10.4.11, any suggestions to fix this? Thanks.

Zac

Upgrades have been shown not the best way to install the new cat.

For starters try zapping the pram by booting and immediately holding down together Command, (the one with the Apple logo) Option, P and R and keep all four held down until you hear the third chime.

If everything goes okay recommend a little utility called Applejack which can be started in single server mode, holding down Command and S, and which keeps everything hunky dory.

Keep us posted?
