    not entirely sure how this happened :(

    i have tiger; i copied the utilities folder from a machine running 10.3.9, but only some of them work - console and terminal do; activity monitor doesn't...

    what can i do about it? i can't archive and reinstall tiger since i don't have enough space left (editing a big movie project).

    Can't you install the Utilities Folder and its contents from your Tiger disk?

    He can do that with pacifist but its a really hard thing to do with that particular folder imo. He would have to extract the folder from 3 or 4 of the packages making sure each app is complete then erase the package Receipts and force the updaters to install. his best bet is to have someone give him the folder since he can't archive and install (however preserving users and network settings it would only be around 3-4GB).

    Would it be deleted in all user accounts? Could you just make a new account?
