My Ti Powerbook G4 has gotten ungodly slow dumping trash. Still running OS 9.2 on it. Any thoughts?
Get a PC,
just a thought
sorry but couldnt help posting that
I dont know that much about mac but isnt there a utillity that sorts out all your files and allocations? like Norton Systemworks . I think my firend who is a mac guy has it , let me give him a call and ill get back at you as soon as I talk to him
Try OS X Panther.
It's only about four hundred thousand times better than any POS MacOS to come before it...
Even if it IS properly known as Darwin *Nix!! ;Q ;g ;f
It's time to move on to OSX.
I too didn't want to leave the comfort of system 9, but after very little time with 10, I would never want to go back.
Yeap, its time for a Panther OSX operating system upgrade. Just make sure you have at least 512meg of RAM. But then you would also have to upgrade your applications too.
Norton is a waste of money on the MAC. (PC also, my 2 cents)
You might also try wiping the drive and doing a 9 OS reinstall. Although painful, it would run like it did when new. Just be sure to backup your files.
Yo dude seriously, I have a dual 2 gHz G5 and a 500mHz G4 both running Panther. I still have OS 9.2 on the lap top because in truth, I have written a couple of very involved actions for an older version of Photoshop that I've been too lazy to redo for Photoshop CS on the G5. The actions are for work I do every week for a specific client and they work perfectly and save me an enormous amount of time. (The client doesn't know this)
So back to the trash. Another thing, if I dump the contents of a media card and empty the trash, it goes like normal. It's just dumping files, almost always photos, from a folder it's crazy slow.
Hmmm... as an oldtime Mac user, especially if that disk is at all close to being full, it sounds like you've got a fragmented disk - large files like photos end up getting spread all over the disk, and it takes a surprisingly long time to manage the files, especially to trash 'em. Use Speeddisk or another of the defrag utilities to clean up, and see if that fixes it.
It could be something else, but that's my bet.
Can you not just run the older version of Photoshop in Classic mode on your desktop? I don't seem to remember it requiring a boot from OS9 to work, but perhaps I'm mistaken.
Yes! Upgrade to Mac OS Version: 10.3.8 ASAP! Keep 9.2 on your HD for apps that need it.
