Try running Disk Utility from Applications > Utilities and do Repair permissions. If u have Onyx use that for Repair Permissions. If that does not sort it download and install this.

I would add that if Collin's suggestions don't remedy the situation, then you need to boot your G5 from the original OS Disk 1 that came with it, and effect repairs therefrom. Failing that, a full retail version of Tiger will do the job.

Reason? The internal OS Disk Utilities cannot repair a startup volume, namely your Mac HD.

Please post your Mac (or other) specs and MacOS version in your post, your profile or your signature. It helps us to help you better.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

No that link just reinstalls OS where needed over the top of what is there. Your User files remain.
