I second that, I always test-install on my #2 partition first, just in case.

This was introduced with MacOS X 10.3.7. It seems to affect Radeon 9600 cards and up. It certainly affects my 17" PowerBook with Radeon 9700M 128Mb. I notified Aspyr and they said they are looking into it. It also causes a huge performance drop when shadows are enabled, which wasn't present under 10.3.5. MacOSX 10.3.8 obviously doesn't fix it.

Excuse my ignorance but what exactly does this mean. Also how do you do it manually?

Well first you unbuckle your pants... oh wait you mean manually do prebinding... First let me say, the prebinding process goes out and looks at each application and it figures out ahead of time which libraries it needs when it launches. It stores this information so that when an application is launched it can refer to the list rather than figuring out what to do from scratch. This speeds up the launch time of an application. If you have OS 10.3 you don't have to worry about prebinding. When an application is installed OS10.3 prebinds your system. That is what is happening when your installer says it is "Optimizing". If you have OS 10.2 or earlier you should prebind about once a month or more often if you do a lot of installs and uninstalls.
You can prebind in the Terminal by typing "sudo update_prebinding -root /" w/o the quotes of course. You will be prompted for your admin password. You can also use Cocktail to do this for you. Again, no need if you are running Panther.

Ever since I got a working G5, I've had it connected to my stereo through the Toslink connector, and to do this I have to select optical out as my adio output. But every time I've woken my G5 from sleep, it has split my output between the optical and analog outputs, so I've been forced to go and change the output to optical only each time.
But now after waking my G5 from sleep for the first time in 10.3.8, there was no need for me to change this! Amazing! I've only reported it to Apple once per OS version since 10.3.4.

Since the update, my X800 fan isn't at full speed, but I definitely notice it now (it seems to do some random variable-speed spin up/down thing, or at least I hear the pitch changing slightly). It wasn't noticeable before the update, and in fact is a little annoying. I was wondering if it was just me, but I guess they did do something that they probably shouldn't have regarding the X800 fan. I'm thinking about running the X800 install software again, though I'm not sure if that will work.
