Apple Mac OS X 10.5.7 Update - Don’t Install If You Use VMware Fusion And ATI Graphics

Published- May 15, 2009

The title pretty much speaks for itself.  Apple’s newest Mac OS X update, 10.5.7, is having issues if you use VMware Fusion and an ATI 3D graphics card.  Problems reportedly include but may not be limited to: system crashes, slow performance, and incorrect rendering.

Macs that use nVidia graphics are unaffected.

And again, it’s only when you combine VMware Fusion with ATI cards.  If you don’t use VMware Fusion, you should be fine.

So who would use VMware Fusion and why?  Well, anyone who wants to run Windows of course.  (Or Linux, or whatever OS you like while also running Mac OS X.)  VMware Fusion is a virtual machine for Intel-based Apple Macintosh computers that allows you to run Windows (or whatever) relatively seamlessly while you use your Mac.  So if this doesn’t sound even remotely familiar to you, then you’re probably safe.

Meanwhile, everyone involved (Apple, VMware, and ATI) are all looking into the issue and hope to have the update problems resolved shortly.

Now everybody must take care of their PC, hihihihi....
