    fresh Panther install but Mail & Safari don't respond
    Hello all,

    I have a burning question, and severe installation problems with an official Panther disc set. Here's what happens:
    I completely formatted my hard drive, zero all data. Then I installed Panther, disc 1,2 and 3. I login for the first time and open Safari to browse the web... it bounces three times in the dock and does not want to open. Mail opens, however by default opens with no viewer window, I have to select "new viewer window". Then on mail check it freezes (spinning colorball) and I have to force quit it. Even if I disable automatic mail check, Mail opens and refuses to quit. I tried everything from, upgrading to 10.3.9 to downloading an older version of Safari. It drives me nuts that Panther out of the box can't work! Internet Explore does work so it's not the network settings. And the day before I decided to do a clean install everything was working, well, almost everything because after upgrading to QuickTime 7 I couldn't open QuickTime Player or Preview. It almost seems to me that Apple forces you to go to the store and buy Tiger. Which is what I did, but my ProTools Digi 001 works only on 10.3.9! Please, can anyone help me???

    specs: G4 mirror dual 1.25, 1.25 G RAM, Maxtor 80 G ATA.

    Have you repaired permissions after you finish upgrading to 10.3.9?

    I dont think it has anything to do with the QT upgrade, mine works great.

    I echo the repair permissions sentiment.
