i'm having a few problems with my ibook g4 running leopard. yesterday i installed a number of apple updates most of which had been available for a few weeks. the iphoto update could not be installed. and when i then tried to open iphoto, it would not open. i put iphoto.app in the trash and re-installed iphoto from the ilife08 disc. iphoto has opened fine since but i am unable to delete the old iphoto (or at least what's left of it as it's 516KB) from the trash and get a message saying "finder cannot complete the operation because some data in 'huEN41wJTpbl6L' could not be read or written (error code -36)". i have tried unsuccessfully to force the trash to empty by using the option key and various methods from this site: http://www.thexlab.com/faqs/trash.html a few weeks ago i was also unable to install the office 2004 update getting the message "the installer could not locate the correct version of the software to install the update". so that's two updates i have had problems with. i have repaired permissions and do not know what to do next. any suggestion will be gratefully received. thanks. UPDATE: i have been into disk utility again and noticed that "repair disk" is greyed out but have attempted to run "verify disk" which failed saying: invalid sibling link volume check failed error: filesystem verify or repair failed.
