For those lucky Mac users across the globe – 10.4.3 should appear in your software update list as of today (well, depending which side of the International Date Line you are).
I installed it on my PowerBook this afternoon, and all was fine, except once major issue. The update had deleted my monitor calibration files. I was stuck with the message “The factory profile for the display could not be found” when I tried to recalibrate, and everything was horribly bright, washed out, with a purple cast.
I restarted (cue sharp intake of breath) twice, and it seemed to then magically reincarnate my monitor profiles, and all is well again.
So – moral of the day for people experiencing odd behaviour on their Macs after installing the OSX 10.4.3 update – restart. If that doesn’t work, restart again…
