Short of buying a PC (I never thought I'd say that until now), would it be safe to reinstall Jaguar....I am freezing terribly with Panther 10.3.3...I want to make sure nothing else is jeopardized if I go back....Thanks.... :mad:

If you're having such problems - have you repaired permissions? Are you maintaining crons? Are you using non Apple - non Crucial RAM? Have you booted into single user (hold command S while booting) and type in the terminal /sbin/fsck -fy until ******FILE SYSTEM CHANGED***** stops showing? I seriously don't recommend pc - a stable doz OS is a very long way off in the best case!

why wouldn't it be safe to reinstall jaguar?...it should be fine...but you're missing out on so much goodness with panther..I'd just try and fix the problem...it's a beautiful thing to have full use of everything in panther...but if it's freezing, that is bad...but it could be good...so I'd work towards taking it somewhree, calling someone...or completely reistalling panther....maybe not do 10.3.3 update...just leave it and 10.3.2....though, if the 3.3 works right, it too has it's advantages.

Going back to an interior OS isn't going to help you, unless you're running a peripheral or something that isn't Panther compatible, but IS Jaguar compatible. The chances of this are slim.

In other words, reverting back to Jaguar isn't going to do a **** thing for you, except make you lose all of Panther's speed and stability. I would recommend reinstalling Panther fresh (formatting the drive). If it's still freezing, then you've got a hardware problem.

Either way, Jaguar isn't going to help you.

Before going back the Jaguar. First try repairing permissions and then create another user acccount. See if you still have the problem with the new user account. If you don't have the problem, then you have some corrupted preference file in the old user account. If the problem is found in the new user account, then I am assuming that you have a corrupted system configuration files.

The purpose of creating a new user account is to see if your computer still freezes. If it does not freeze, then there is a problem with your other account. The new account will not have any of the thing that you created in the old account.

Looking at your original problem are you still having the freezing problem with the old and new account?

In other words, the e-mail/and other folders etc are not part of what the new account user has access rights to. That's why they don't show
