About This Mac Screenshots

It's really strange, but when I select "About this Mac", I either get logged out, all applications are killed, the screen goes black for a second or two, and a solid-block-of-a-text-prompt comes. Then, "the system" (GUI) restarts, with the earlier running applications having vanished, as if I've just started the system.


Have had OSX for three days now, btw. Installed using the 10.4.6 HOTiSO image.


System: AMD Sempron 2500, ram 512. onboard lan (via rhine II) and on board audio (ac97) don't work (yet).


But being logged out (if that's what it is) and back in is really strange. Any ideas? Thanks...


i get this SAME EXACT problem when i try to click " About this Mac ". anyone know the fix to this?

My custom hack-Jaguar on X86 architecture:



I know it's a joke, but I love pointing out the obvious :rolleyes:

  1. 10.2 never had Dashboard :whistle:
  2. Adium is compiled against 10.4 frameworks, it won't run on 10.2
  3. The real killer, the GUI is PPC only XD

Still a well done effect, though :thumbsup_anim:
