Thread: OS Upgrading concern
10-06-2010, 02:53 PM #1OS Upgrading concern
My first post as a a MAC user!
I have inherited a G4 PowerPC MDD having spent my computer life entirely on PCs.
I bought Final Cut Express 2 as this fitted the spec of my machine and offered what I need for editing. The Mac runs OSX 10.3.2 and things are fine with the FCE 2. The Mac has an aftermarket DVD writer but no software so I thought I'd buy iLife for its burning software and decided on iLife '08 as this seemed a good fit for my elderly Mac.
On attempting to install it's telling me I need OS X 10.4.9. My questions are as follows:
1. Can my Mac run this upgraded OS?
2. In upgrading, will this cause my FCE 2 to wobble or stop working?
3. Should I have gone for an older version on iLife?
Any advice greatly appreciated.

And at least update to OS X.3.9 the last Panther update.
Here is the link, the first one shown for the Combination Updater at 117MB and not the Server version:-
