  7. The update screwed with my brightness control, and now I can’t see anything because the controls won’t work. What the heck man….

    This horrible update actually breaks NFS shares instead of improving anything about them as indicated in the list of changes. Skip this update and wait for 10.6.8 if you use NFS shares.

    • Jake says:

      I concur with this statement. Mac OS X 10.6.7 breaks NFS shares. I now only have the ability to view/copy files on my share. What a horrible update.

      • ren says:

        same for me: NFS shares appear as if they were mounted read-only in finder. However they are not because using a Terminal shell, I can write to the NFS shares.
        I tried many things but without success.
