    Default upgrade to 10.5.8 fails

    hey,

    my vanilla install was going along beautifully -- followed a few different tutorials and was comfortably using 10.5.7.

    had a look at a forum post about upgrading to 10.5.8 and it said "vanilla users just do an apple update and install, it'll just work"

    so i did.

    and it didn't.

    now the machine won't boot past chameleon -- chameleon just gives me a "you must restart your machine" error every time i boot up.

    how do i revert back to 10.5.7 or am i screwed and just have to reinstall everything again?

    so to upgrade from 10.5.7 i should really just download the combo updater and start a whole retail install from scratch, ie re-partition the drive etc?

    is it safe to use the apple updater for anything with a retail install? I thought the whole point of using a bootloader and a retail disc was that you're supposed to be able to just upgrade without annything breaking...
