View Full Version : About this computer not working.

5th July 2007, 01:34 AM
Has anyone else experianced this since installing the 10.4.10 update? When you press more info in the About this Computer pop up, nothing happens?

I have tried it on two PowerMac G5's and both will not fire up the more info panel since I installed the 10.4.10 update.

I've installed it on a few macs and it's given no troubles.

Mine works chris on a G4 iMac with the 10.4.10 update

No problem updating to 10.4.10 with a G4 or a MacBook.

Mind you, the eMate's been playing up a bit...

all fine here.
Check console.app to see if there are any error messages

Console.app says the following:

When I hit more info it just says Opening main.nib... with the spinning thing and opens a window with main.nib

I have left it spinning for about three minutes and nothing happens.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'd download the 10.4.10 Combo update and install it. That old trick tends to fix glitches such as this.

That fixed it - thanks Currawong

I always use the Combo updater for Mac OS Updates these days. It seems to prevent some weird problems on almost all updates...
