10.6 DVD Scratched, Urgently Need Rosetta
For those unfamiliar with Rosetta (no relation to the language software) it a module allowing ppc apps to run smoothly and unobtrusively on intel macs; it comes bundled with 10.6 as an "Optional Install," which mean if you do not go out of your way to customise installation by selecting said item, you often don't know what you're missing until later. I for one don't understand why it isn't part of the standard installation, being so crucial. In my experience "Customise Install" means deselecting undesireables, not vice versa.
But I digress.
I can't just install it because the disk is damaged, can't replace for lack of funds, can't borrow for lack of mac acquaintances, can't download for lack of sources (not for lack of trying mind you.)
I've never used this site before, but judging by the domain name, I'm going t assume I don't need to explain how to go about extracting Rosetta from the install disk (Pacifist?) and uploading it or email.
Unless someone has a link? It's not even two megs. After searching everywhere for a link myself, it appears there are likely thousands of mac users in the same rut.
On behalf of us all, thank you in advance. I know you won't let me down.
You don't need a copy of the DVD for Rosetta to install, if you get the app up that wants it, it asks you do you want to install rosetta, if you click yes it just connects to apple and downloads and installs. see:
