Anyone having problems with the latest build (8a369) rebooting the finder over and over. The desktop goes blank and replaces all drive icons (finder crashes basically) every minute or so.

no problems here. the only problem i've had in the past week was dashboard crashing taking the dock with it... other than that 8a369 has been the most stable build i've had.

My guess is that you have the StuffitAVDaemon running at startup and finder crashes and relaunches every 90 seconds??
Remove the stuffit daemon and your problems should go away.

Cheers,

Well I've recently updated 8a368 with 8a385 and now the system runs so poorly it's not worth running. It appears that the graphics driver is to blame here as I get no effects (dock scaling, dashboard effects, widgets don't even flip now, they just toggle from front to back.)

Should I do a fresh install vs. update?

From the 8a385 seednote:
Upgrades over previous version of Tiger seed builds are NOT working or supported. For Tiger over Tiger updates, please do only "Erase and Install" or "Archive and Install".

As far as i can remember (back to 10.2 seeds), it has always been advised to do installs and not updates.

Helps if you read the seed notes. Thank you, that fixed everything.
