"WARNING TO ALL JAGUAR USERS...!!"
This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I've been anxiously awaiting a new update to the MacAlly software/drivers for months now...I'd talked to their tech support about issues w/ 'auto-centering', plus the need for Panther support, of course. Be patient, I was told, 'we're aware of the issues and we're working on it'...oh, and 'if you can't wait, we recommend USB Overdrive.'
Well, I did an install of the new 1.01 software and for the first time EVER, an installer killed my system. It locked up in the reboot cycle and it took two hours and the assistance of two patient engineers here at my office to go through single-user terminal proceedures to delete files, repair permissions and get my TiBook to live again (running 10.2.8--thought I'd get things prepped for Panther, oh no!). In short--Danger! Do not assume backwards compatibility w/ this driver install!
A shame, the control bad is very nice. The software and support sucks. They really need to crack the whip and demand their programmer(s) product good product.
