||Panther Maintenance Tips|
I have 2 issues that haven't been solved with the maintenance steps suggested. I have looked quite a bit to find the reason but no luck so far.
I am running OS 10.3.9 on a G5. About a year ago, while using XCode all my home directory "dirname" disappeared. Luckily it was saved as "dirname-1-moved-aside" as a new user (so under /Users/dirname-1-moved-aside). I copied back all my files where they belong to but since then there are a few things I am unable to do. In the Finder, on the left with the aliases (?) for Applications, Music, Movies etc I should be able to choose a picture for the directories I put there. It is not possible anymore. I hoped that the repair permission would take care of that but it didn't. Also I can't get the Finder Help to work. The window pops up and disappears right away.
