Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2006 9:37 PM (in response to rtkramer_mac)The Adobe Security Patcher for Adobe Photoshop CS2 seems to fix the problem (ie Photoshop CS2 crashing when saving in OS 10.4.6).
It's available here:

No patch is needed for the updater. Most people successfully updated to 10.4.6 with no problems.
The crashes were caused by preexisting problems with the former operating system and/or disk directory. Some of those problems may have resulted from using Migration Assistant to move over items that conflict with OS X on the MacBook Pro (haxies, old contextual menu plugins, etc.).
In most cases, a new install of the OS using Archive & Install, then moving over just really needed (and compatible) stuff from the old operating system files, will restore the MBP to stability.
It's always a good idea to run permissions repair before and after installing OS or Security updates. And recommended to run Disk Utilities > Disk Repair from the Install DVD, also.PowerMac DC 2.3, 5 GB RAM, 2 500 GB HD, Mac OS X (10.4.5), MacBook Pro 2.0, 2 GB RAM, 7200 rpm 100 GB HD
Currently Being ModeratedApr 5, 2006 10:38 PM (in response to Bill DeVille)Hey Bill I had a totally clean system before 10.4.6 from a clean install on my new MBP it ran almost perfect in 10.4.5 I have only used Photoshop and sother native apps on this machine it is not haxied modified flippity flopped whatever. Barely ever crashed. I did a repair permissions and installed 10.4.6 Combo. This machine crashes in every app now, native or not, totally at random I also had 2 kernal panics in a row today. Something is wrong. I dont know about you but 10.4.6 has majorly F'd up my MBP.A load of really expensive CRAP, Other OS, Stuff that will be useless in 6 months to a year

Thats rediculous why should I have to do all that crap!!!A load of really expensive CRAP, Other OS, Stuff that will be useless in 6 months to a year
Currently Being ModeratedApr 6, 2006 6:19 AM (in response to rtkramer_mac)download the combined updater. it's a very widely known best practice.
for flushing caches, use applejack. easy to use, most effective tool for these kinds of problems. non-intrusive (runs in single user mode).

Currently Being ModeratedApr 17, 2006 4:01 PM (in response to rtkramer_mac)I too have experienced a slightly different version of this problem - my version looks for another computer on the network, and if it can't find it, it hangs. Turning on the other computer "fixes" the problem, but there is, however, something very wrong with 10.4.6Dual g5 2, Mac OS X (10.4.6), 8 gigs ram
