    On starting up in OS9.2 I'm getting a crash bomb and "segment loader error" as well as a freeze. I've not encountered this one before - has anyone else?

    I hadn't heard of it, but this is what a search turns up: Segment loader error System could not load needed segment from the disk into RAM memory._ Often caused by corrupt application. Replace application with a known good copy or upgraded version.

    I smell a reinstall coming on...:mad:

    EDIT: Try a disk repair program, you never know what it might turn up. Diskwarrior seems to be everyones' favourite, and Norton has screwed me over a few times so I suggest that too.

    i cant do anything else than confirm, that probably it s related to a corrupted ( perhaps a header ) file, which needs to vbe replaced.

    You may also want to try Zapping your P-RAM. I've had this error in the past and doing that has cleared it up some of the time.
