    Hey you guys... I've got a problem with iChat Av. Whenever I try and launch iChat, the dock icon will bounce a couple times then stop without the program launching. I tried opening with the terminal command and this is what it said:

    Last login: Mon Apr 12 13:12:29 on console
    /Applications/iChat.app/Contents/MacOS/iChat; exitWelcome to Darwin!

    [kron2-43-178:~] mark% /Applications/iChat.app/Contents/MacOS/iChat; exit
    Broken pipe
    logout
    [Process completed]


    I have a feeling the "broken pipe" is the problem and I was wondering if anyone knows what it means.

    Also, if it isn't fixable, can I reinstall just iChatAV off of my Panther discs?

    Thanks for the help!
    Mark

    just delete it and reinstall from the disk using pacifist to extract the .pkg file from the disk. i believe it is on disk 2.

    just an afterthought, it might be worthwhile to check your permissions and to maybe scrap the preferences in your home/library/preferences ...
