heya fellas

i own a 14" iBook 944mHz with OS X Panther. i went to download and install the new security update and it says "Make sure you have permission to write to /tmp/501/TemporaryItems/, then try again." this has never happened before, and i havent changed any permissions, so what could it be? i repaired permissions like 3 days ago, but i'll try again now...

help please?!


EDIT: As an afternote, i went to and tried to download the update manually from the website, but our stupid netfilter blocked it, and the update site is down... :mad:
