    I am running 9.1 at home. Can I update from 9.1 to 10? Or do I need 9.2 first? Can I update 9.1 to 10.2?

    I am ignorant when it comes to installing operting systems so any help will be apreciated.

    Gracias

    9.2 was pretty key... even if you can update from 9.1 to 10, if you ever do anything back in classic you'd probably want 9.2... you can still find a 9.1 -> 9.2 update on apple.com...

    you can't just update from 9 to 10.. you need to install it from the actual disks... and i would suggest you install at least 10.2 'jaguar'.. 10.0 is slow as fuck and full of bugs. you also need at least 9.1.
    and don't bother if you don't have at least a dual 450 G4, its not worth it. way too slow..

    i wouldn't say you need a dual 450... i'm not running it on my pismo, but that's just i don't have enough memory right now... i've used 10 on older imacs without a problem, and even on an old beige performa that was upgraded to a g3...

    i've tried it on my blue&white g3 400 512 ram and it really sucked ass. i scraped it all and went back to 8.6.. haven't crashed in 5 months, and its nice and zippy..

    i've heard mixed stories like yours too.. "worked great on my old commodore64!!".. "its a piece of shit on my 867 with a gig of ram"..

    best thing to do is to try it out.. if it works, great :cool:


    you should also reformat your hard drive and add an extra partition..

    You can't upgrade OS X from anything previous. The purpose of having an older system is to run classic. And to do that you'll need at least 9.2. However, there's few apps you'd even need that aren't already ported to OSX (I think Quark is aboutt he last one. And to be honest, it's not worth it, just Use InDesign 2).

    And yes, try and get OS X 10.2 since with this verson you'll be able to get all the software upgrades all the way to the current version (10.2.5). 10.2 was a major milestone and has significant performance updates, as well as improved integrated apps. Further most new apps require at least 10.2.

    damn, our boss, and a few workmates
    went to the seminar on this program,
    and they said it was a pretty impressive
    program. So impressive, theyre thinking
    about switching over from quark.

    thanks alot for the advice, I just downloaded the 9.2 and 9.2.2 updates. I am going to have a busy weekend, hopefully I won't blow my machine up.
     
  10. After a few weeks of attempts, I finally got OS X.2 running on my baby. It's the fucking greatest thing in the universe, took me a while to get used to, but I've got it pretty much down. Now I need to find the native versions of most of my software, but in the meanwhile classic runs them beautifully. I'm ecstatic. Beer,

    I'm thinking that if I ever get my own computer I'll run Lindows.

    Bottom line - linux is the best os. You can cry about user friendlyness if you want. The fact remains.
