Default Not enough disk space to upgrade to 10.6.2 - 11-16-2009, 11:08 PM

I tried updating to 10.6.2 but was notified I did not have enough disk space. I am fairly sure nothing I can delete will free up the amount of disk space I need to continue.

Having said that, is there a way to mount my SD card as space the OS will recognize as space used on the startup disk? thanks.

what size drive? you can use monolingual and xslimmer to gain enough space.

Mini 9 | 2gb RAM | 16GB SSD / 8GB SDHC | OS X 10.6.3 Snow Leopard | NBI 0.8.4RC1
Apple TV | 160GB | CrystalHD
iPhone 4
Powermac G5 Tower | 2x 2.0GHZ | 8GB Ram | 160+250 GB HDD | OS X 10.5.8 Leopard | 24" Acer

i have 100gb and it said the same thing. I have post on the development forum asking if update or combo makes a different. member "hotdog" recommended instead of downloading to search for the software upgrades thru the apple icon on the top bar. Im doing that now, and so far so good. Its working. I just don't know what the updates are its doing?

Mini 10v - OS X 10.6.2 - 120gb HDD - 1g Ram - NCD (D) - RC5 - BIOS A05 - Works Perfect!
