After running the combo updater, Safari hangs on launch (spinning beach ball). I re-downloaded 5.0.5 but when I tried to install, I got a message saying "This version of Safari requires 10.6.7". Now what?
Well regardless of the message that you got the apple website says that safari 5.0.5 is compatible with 10.6.8.
