Hi All-
My G5 dual 2Mhz Tiger is OS 10.4.0
have just laboriously downloaded (but not installed) updates-
10.4.1
4.2
4.3
4.4
4.5
4.6
Do I need to install _each_ to get to 10.4.6? Or just go from current 4.0 to 4.6 directly??
Thanks
Stu Aull

Apple always publishes a "combo" updater for those who are jumping beyond one incremental "dot" release. These are found listed on http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/. A run of Software Update should also have shown the combo updater listed as a choice.
Knowledge Base Document 303410 "About the Mac OS X 10.4.6 Update (combo)" describes the combo updater, some important Read Me items, the process to get you to 10.4.6 in one step, and a link to the download. No need to download and apply individual updates.
It is a pretty hefty (140MB) download.

I always just run the "Software Update" in the Apple menu. I never trust that I'll find everything when hunting around the web page whereas I know that the updater will find everything it needs.

That's what I was using too Jeff - it was the "combo" name that thru me. I thought maybe I was also downloading the "Windows" version too. Good to know that the updater features Knows Best.
Thanks

[stu aull] " I thought maybe I was also downloading the "Windows" version too."

Microsoft may be very surprised about a "Windows" version of Mac OS X,

The OS updaters served up to you via Software Update are the appropriate versions for your computer (PPC or Intel).
The OS updaters on apple.com are clearly titled as to which machines they are for (or not).
