I have searched for this update and after downloading this my computer says it already has this update.... am i doing something wrong or is GIMP destined to not work on my computer.

You need to install X11 from your original Tiger install discs.

On Install Disc 1, open the Optional Installs package:



Select Applications>X11



Then click update. Once it's finished you will have X11.

Oh...and only pretty girls use Macs...

The current Gimp for OS X on Tiger also require 10.4.11. You'll need to make sure Tiger is up to date.

You'll also need to make sure you have downloaded the proper version of Gimp, whether for PPC or for Intel.

Check this page.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
