Huh?

I understood it perfectly.
What is so confusing about "This update will replace your audio drivers." ?. In english, this means that "this update will replace your audio drivers".

What is so confusing about "If you use CloverALC for Realtek onboard audio, no changes may be necessary." ?. In English, this means that "if you use CloverALC for Realtek onboard audio, no changes may be necessary".

In other words, "This update (10.11.1) will replace your audio drivers. If you use the CloverALC command (well documented everywhere) for patching your Realtek onboard audio, then you may not have to worry about the fact that this update replaces your audio drivers as CloverALC patch takes care of it.

No need to be pedantic.


"Will" would be better, it is authoratitive and definitive, whereas "may" is ambiguous and uncertain. The subtleties of English which make all the difference; I am an Englishman living in a quiet English village, born in England, and I speak absolutely perfect English, so if *I* see ambiguity, it could only degrade from there. I can assure you that a tiny bit of pedantry from me, will save your readers some confusion, take my word for it.

Many thanks

  • This update will replace your audio drivers. If you enabled Realtek onboard audio using the CloverALC110 script, no changes will be necessary.

Thank you :)

There's nothing like having the public to proof read :p

Clearly, "changes may not be necessary" was the original intended meaning. In other words, if all goes well...

You are mis-quoting the pre-edited tutorial text; it actually read: "no changes may be necessary", and, had it not been possibly ambiguous, the OP wouldn't have been edited to clarify, would it?



Yes, I can be pedantic if need be, and if I find something to be possibly confusing (without it needing to be) I shall mention it. It's called having an eye for details, and I didn't whine and gripe like many people would, I politely and kindly suggested it could be (and was) a potential source of confusion, and now it's fixed. If Jony Ive designed something poorly - say the hole in a piece of aluminium was off-centre and wouldn't fit, do you think he'd just say "Ah, that'll do"? No, he'd start again and fix it. With text, this is a 5 second task - utterly trivial, and for someone to waltz along and criticise someone for pointing out ambiguous grammar, well that is plain idiotic.

Meaning something and effectively conveying that meaning are entirely different things. Anyhow, lest we prolong this redundancy, I see no further fruitful reason to discuss it.

OS X 10.11.1 Update - Had to redo NVIDIA fix in plist for iMac15,1

Only one minor problem with the update,

/System/Library/Extensions/AppleGraphicsControl.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleGraphicsDevicePolicy.kext/Contents/Info.plist


was changed back to original setting for the iMac15,1 and I had to modify it to get my video back

Link to fixit script, just in case anyone needs it.

Quick Instructions:
1. Boot to single user mode
2. Mount / read-write
3. Run script
4. Reboot

Viola!

Also, it never asked me to re-authenticate to app store/icloud like others reported.
