So far Lion has been out for 4 days, sure there are going to be bugs its the first version of a new operating system!, of course everything isnt going to be perfect. Apple is already seeding (or about to seed) 10.7.2 for developers and this should fix some bugs and problems.


People need to settle down about simple little bugs, i have two macs that i upgraded a couple of days ago and so far havent had any bugs whatsoever, and even if i come across some i certinetly wont retreat back to Snow Leopard.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)

    Thanks but when your hard drive is losing space so fast you can watch it in the Get Info box and the Apple Store Genius guys tell you to go back to Snow Leopard... well, I'm going to complain.


    Sorry man. Nice try. Yeah it's not the end of the world but it's a crappy OS release.

  • Francisco Bido Level 1 (5 points)

    So just because you're not having problems,we should all settle down.


    The release doesn't work on an iMac 3.06GHz.  The display driver is WAY messed up.  That's not a simple bug, it causes a kernel panic (system crash) it is a MAJOR bug.  Enough to render the release completely unusable. On the other hand, don't think I'm missing anything except the for the cool new Mail app.

    "So just because you're not having problems,we should all settle down."


    Hehe, yeah. "Stop discussing problems I don't have!"


    I'd say: DON'T settle down. Talk about it a lot, generate discussions, evaluate, fight, learn, complain, share opinions. That's good.

    Those are isolated issues, the vast majority is not having problems.

  • Sergeant Karma Level 1 (25 points)

    I'm not sure what the point of your post is, but isolated issues are issues too.

  • Raul E Level 1 (10 points)

    Yeah, but as they are isolated, it is not right to call Lion "a crappy OS release", It is working right for millions.

    No idea here either. Do I get points for that?

  • subhuti Level 1 (10 points)

    Oh thats funny that it doesnt work on a iMac 3.06GHz because that is what i have and it runs like a beast. So just chill out, re-install the complete operating system from scratch and import your data back in from a time machine backup. Sure i realise that this new release wont work for everybody perfectly, its the first release! And there are millions of people out there enjoying the new amazing features that lion has to offer, like myself. Like I said, 10.7.2 has already been seeded to developers and this should fix probelms and bugs that you have.

  • Kenzooo Level 1 (0 points)



    So from what I gather, everyone should calm down because a couple of guys claim that the majority of users are having no problem.  Those that are having trouble should enjoy the amazing features and perhaps import data back from your time machine backups...


    Well I can't.  Sorry.  Cannot get network accounts at all.  When I first 'upgraded' there were no network accounts available so I took the advice from this forum that I should unbind with my 2008 R2 Server and rebind.  Well guess what - now I cannot rebind with them. 


    So I look at my backups.  Guess what.  I cannot connect to my My Western Digital (World) drive that connected so happily before - "The version of the server you are trying to connect to is not supported. Please contact your system administrator to resolve the problem."


    This would have to be one of the biggest stuff ups of all time.  Clearly this basic functionality (connecting to an MS Network) has not been tested rigourously enough or at all. 


    Can we have some fixes please Apple and some advice that the fixes exist.  I would like to have my expensive Apple computer working again on my network in a 'business as usual' kind of way.

    A very large number of people are having very serious

    video issues!!!!!!!  I for one with my Mac Mini and a slew

    of others with Mac Minis get NO VIDEO WITH LION!!!

    This is not a MINOR BUG!!!!!!!


    They work fine with SL!!!!!!!


    I will in your defense say that my iMac and MacBook Pro

    do work just fine with Lion.


    And as for Lion being "amazing", I found it to be pretty


  • simonb97 Level 1 (0 points)

    After installing lion, my macbook won't start!!

    Never had this problem before with any other update!!!!

  • cwog Level 1 (85 points)

    Yet another user with an unuseable machine as the Video resoluion cannot be set at what it used to work at in SL


    Trying a re install

  • PeterVL57 Level 2 (300 points)

    I work with iMac 3.06 mhz and it works like a charm. But that's not the point. We should not dismiss each others problems just because it works for me or for you. It's clear that some people have major hardware problems, that did not occur under OS X Snow Leopard. But it's unclear what causes this. There are a lot of people wtih mac mini's having trouble with their HDMI. This must be a problem Apple should adress immediatly, because this is obviously a flaw in the OS.


    But what if my iMac 3.06 works fine, while others have a major problems on the same machine. My first thought is it has to do with installing different programs of third party vendors, that destabilizes something in the OS. I don't know what it can be. But that's in my opinion the direction we should be looking. Blaming the OS and dismissing it, won't bring the solution.


    my two cents...

  • cwog Level 1 (85 points)

    I have resolved my immediate problem by removing a non powered up DVI ADC Adapter that was attached to the second DVI socket on the Graphics card.
