Update on earlier post of Problems encountered with Mathematica & Snow

Hi all,

Snow Leopard is a self healing system!!

Earlier I reported on errors with Mathematica 7 & my upgrade to Snow  

The items below are not reproducible after a system power down and  

2	The 1st open notebook generated the error:

	"Assertion '(Unknown OS Error)' failed at LikeResource.c:56"

	However continuing did start Mathematica and run some initial notebooks OK

3	However there is also a problem with Mathematica Documentation Display. For  

	Needs["Benchmarking`"]  displays as NeedsC"Benchmarking`"G


	BenchmarkReport[] displays as BenchmarkReport@D

2 above does not appear on Mathematica startup and 3 is no longer true!!

I cannot explain it...but happy at the miraculous healing...

Cheers .... Syd
