Just to finish the olde year on the latest news of fresh disaster . . . nothing serious, just the continuing series of wacky stuff . . . don't know if this is the "buggy Leopard" that MB was talking about or the cpu making mischief . . . but, like I mentioned, things more or less seem "normal" on the surface of 10.5 . . . no luck on reviving Yaboot . . . yet.
Last night I ran DU and verified the int disk, and, for the first time since I upgraded it said it was "OK" . . . so I cloned the system over to the ext HD partition . . . erasing and formatting the old partition previously damaged . . . and all went "OK" except CCC gave me an "In/Out error" . . . relating to the Firefox cache . . .??? wasn't sure if that was because of the "new" account name thingie (keychain still asking for password BTW) . . . . Anyway, since it took quite awhile to move 20GB over via 400 FW I logged out or just put the machine to sleep.
This Am I wake the machine, things going OK, checked emails . . . then I tried to reboot and boot the clone to check it out; as it boots an error window says, "We are unable to repair Macint0, but we're showing it for your enjoyment anyway" . . . that was the internal HD OSX disk they were referring to . . . ????? Figured no point in running DU on it . . . disk appears "damaged." Anyway, clone booted, so I went back to int HD, and tried to launch Mail . . . no dice, it "crashed" . . . tried it several times, crashed 3 times.
rebooted into single user, more disaster as I mentioned AJ finding before . . . "couldn't repair the disk" . . . then it says, "Success, It's OK"??? . . . moving on to permissions??? it got stuck on a repeated line with different numbers "diskarbitration: could not create system configuration notification port" at least 20 times . . . finally I control-c'd out of it . . . and shut the computer down for a couple hours . . . .
On reboot, OSX log in window loads, I log in . . . TFF is fine . . . Mail launches first time . . . . Sound like a "normal" day running 10.5.8??? I guess it is . . . tempted to run AJ again, but just can't stand the news of fresh disaster for today.
Happy New Year homes . . . !!!!
