    10.3.2 performance
    Hi All

    Just updated to 10.3.2, and I notice that it seems a little slower, especially when starting up. My desktop items take a lot longer to appear than before. I haven't heard anyone else mention this, so anyone got any ideas? I'm quite new to OS X so I'm not sure if there's anything I can do apart from fixing permissions, which I've done.

    Also - is it possible to back out an installed update?

    Cheers,
    James

    I've got the same problem plus the font sizes in Mail and Safari are all wacked. I can't get them to respond to the preference size.

    Your's maybe 'cause of a rename to either the Library or Home Folder both which can't be done without messing things up.

    I just wiped my HDD and downgraded to 10.2 because 10.3 was screwed and has nothing really to offer me, it wouldnt hold my data, when i restarted, it would lose all the sys preferences i would set.

    p.s. fomer what is you ichat/aim, be faster cos your always there when im in trouble :p

    I haven't had that problem really. The first boot up was a little slow but now it probably takes about 10 seconds to boot up realistically maybe 20 seconds. I should time it, but it's extremely fast, but I don't shut down or restart my comp much.

    You are correct Sir,

    In Terminal I entered (per Apple Tech Help) sudo In -s
    /System/Library/Extensions/BootCache.kext/Contents/Resources/BootCacheControl/usr/sbin. Restarted twice and presto the boot time is back to its normal quick time. This is first time I used Terminal and without Tech Supports help I wouldn't have done it (fear of the unknown).
