I just recently bought a Powermac G5 with 10.4.11 installed. Im currently having problems with the new java update 1.6.0_13. It says that it should already be in the system update and the system is currently up to date but no java. When i tired manually downloading it, it said that it wasnt available for my operating system. I trade using scottrade and use streaming quotes but after the new java update i can no longer use it. I just took it into the place i bought it from and they guy apparently has no idea about macs and cannot solve the problem. Im about to take it back but im hoping there is a resolution to my problem. Im willing to update my software but i Have no idea what i need to bring my g5 up-to-date. Thanks and I hope someone can help.

OS 10.5 "Leopard" is the most up to date OS for Powermac G5's (actually 10.5.8)...but an OS install disk will cost you $100-$125.

With OS 10.5.8 you will have the latest (and last) OS version available for a G5 Powermac...and if your trading with ScottTrade doesn't work with OS 10.5.8 (maybe check with ScottTrade what Mac OS they support)...then nothing will.

lukavivid boot from your Tiger disk, you do have one we trust, and run Repair Disk and see what is reported. If all is well then download the Tiger combo updater which I think referred you to earlier.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
