    Hmm, so I opened Acquisition on my friends computer (G4 powerbook, 10.4.3, etc). It said that his OS was missing software, and I need to re-install the OS because it is a very serious problem.

    So, wtf is up? Could he have accidently deleted something? He goes to boarding school, home for the holidays. I'm his lifeline for his computer.

    I highly doubt he's got the orignal disks, any ideas? Would rather avoid going through downloading the torrents illegaly etc.

    permissions fix FTW


    go to APPLICATIONS/UTILITIES/DISK UTILITY

    in that, select the indented hard drive on the left side, then click REPAIR DISK PERMISSIONS on the middle in the bottom, if that doesnt work, dunno mehn
