    I have an HD issue. :confused:

    invalid leaf record count... 1 volume needs repair

    It was very screwy for a bit - no clock, blinking finder. I was running 10.4, but I don't have that disk, so I reintalled 10.3 archive and install. It's better :eek:, but there are a few things that still don't work properly - iPod syncing, iPhoto is missing system files and doesn't open, dictionary doesn't open.

    I've run dsck - appears to be OK and disk utility from disk - 1 volume needs repair.

    I'm a long long way from an Apple store. I have an external HD to back things up. I'm contemplating an erase and install. What should I do?

    Try backing everything up to your external and doing a clean install, to see if it is just something wrong with the filesytem, if that doesn't fix it then your HD probably needs to be replaced.

    Success

    Thanks for the help.

    I backed up, erased and installed. It's looking ok. I can sync iPod and use iPhoto. I guess there is no dictionary on 10.3. I must've gotten that with 10.4. :)
