UPDATE: I found the problems... it was actually two different problems, being caused by two third party aps.. and ancient version of Keyboard Maestro.. I updated, and it fixed the AFP connection Status error.

Then an app called Butler, which I use for a multiple pasteboard. I just had to reconfigure it a bit and the second problem is now gone. Whew.

My apologizes to the big cat on these issues. [blush]
There's still some flaky fur balls around though. [Geek]

Arrrrrg. I'm having trouble with Tiger and networking, and keep getting this error on start-up...

 -

Then I keep getting this error, which is popping up every 20 minutes or so. GRRRRRRRRRR [Mad]

 -

I didn't have these errors in Panther. When installing Tiger, I did an Archive and Install. (Nitro's computer and my Pismo do not have the problem. They are also on the same network, Tiger was a simple upgrade for them.)

I'm on an Airport/Ethernet network, Appletalk activated so I can access a Mac OS 9.2 machine. While searching for this problem on the net I did notice some Apple Discussion board stuff about creating a new Automatic location. I did that, and it seemed to fix other airport problems I was having, but this AFP error remains.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: It's something with my user. If I log on as a different user the error doesn't appear. Hmmm, some kind of alias to a long forgotten server maybe?

/me humbly suggests that folks who haven't already run out to buy Tiger wait for 10.4.1 or .2, like I am. This was nonetheless rushed out the door, and I bet there are a few significant bugs left. (I was reading on Macintouch that a new build number was passed out to developers /after/ the gold master was said to have gone out.)

Sound advice from dm as ever... From what I've heard 10.4.1 fixes about two dozen bugs, but from Macintouch, Macfixit and more than a few others, it looks like there's a *lot* more patching to be done yet...

(didn't 10.3.1 get released within a month of 10.3 hitting the stores? do I detect a pattern here? and do I know the meaning of "rhetorical"? ;-)

/looks wistfully at his still unopened box of 10.4, summons unknown reserves of patience, logs out, goes to bed...

I've had some funny bonjour ichat problems- the user is in the buddy list, but unreachable if I try to message them. Apart from that, I'm a happy tiger user.

I did an "Archive and Install" update. For the first day or so it felt slightly sluggish and flaky, but then it settled down very nicely, (perhaps as the old Panther prefs got rewritten with Tiger ones?). The last few glitches seem to have disappeared since I ran Disk Warrior. Perhaps Mac OS X installers themselves are not without problems, as I remember that running Disk Warrior after installing Panther uncovered some significant errors too.

All in all I think that Tiger is in pretty good shape for an initial release. To the best of my recollection, there seem to be fewer problems reported, than occurred on the first release of Panther.

I found the problems... read the original post for details. [Smile]

I installed Tiger on my 120 GB drive and left Panther on the 200 GB one. I'm as excited about the new features as anyone else, but it's unacceptable that some programs don't work and there are issues with the internet connection. The biggest problem prolly is that the 120 GB drive has about .65 GB free on it. Ugh...

BTW, 10.4.1 now available via software update.

Heh...RScottV beat me to the punch of pointing out this article...as seen on Macintouch:
http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301517

*That* was fast - I might just want to wait for 10.4.2 before I buy Tiger. [Wink]

/me checks his credit card statement online...

10.4.1 didn't fix the vexing absurd annoying problem with non-Apple keyboards that didn't exist at all under Panther.

10.4 Server also has its share of problems.

This week at work we decided to upgrade our internal XServe from 10.2 to 10.4. Unfortunately, we didn't know that there is a known issue where the "Inherit permissions from parent" option is broken for share points. This is bad since we use the server mainly for file sharing, and this way no one except the owner of a file gets write/execute permissions. Apple's quick fix is to use ACLs, but it's not a perfect solution. Also, we are (so far) unable to downgrade the included MySQL 4.1 to 4.0.

So yeah, the rule about waiting for .2 is very true.
