hi gary,

i updated osx since it came out and i personally
didn`t have any problems [so far]using it with max.

said so, im not an advance user of max but i use it
almost every day for university projects.

Working fine for me now, but for some bizarre reason all my audio plugs
vanished from my Library when I ran the update!
Luckily I had a backup, and it was probably some freak Voodoo that only
affects folks like me, but you might want to make a backup if you’re at all
superstitious ;-)
Cheers

Oh and it hasn’t cured the curse of the Mbox that’s been plaguing me for
months (anyone for white noise?)

fyi, i did the "erase and install" option, which gives you a clean
install.
if you clone your drive to a bootable volume you then get an option to
import your user settings et al to the new install. i was amazed that
this
brought 95% of my system files, apps, etc over without having to install
everything. max/msp/jitter transferred 100% – so far no problems.
cudos to apple for this time saver. disclaimer: make sure you read all
the info about doing this before you begin, there are some things you
need to setup beforehand to make this work smoothly. i also did a
repair permissions/disk warrior run beforehand.
cheers

One thing you might want to note – it took a very, very long time to re-boot after the update. I don’t know if others had the same experience, but I was getting quite concerned before my machine finally showed me the login screen.

I saw that as well, both in 10.4.3->10.4.4 and 10.4.4->10.4.5 on more
than one machine; one has to stare at the Macromedia-style little
gearwheel thing for a long time. (Actually, forcing a power-off and
rebooting at this stage doesn’t seem to do any harm; I ran out of
patience a couple of times.)

Does this still happen to you? Or was it only on first reboot?

For myself (I made the original comment) it was the first time only. Nick mentions this also happened with previous OS updates. True here as well, but the 10.4.5 update seemed to take much longer than the previous updates for me.

First reboot. All my 10.4.5 machines are now happy. I guess it’s
doing snazzy BootCache stuff the first time.
