Hi all, I am having the hardest time trying to find iSM for Tiger, I need version 3.1 or so for my PowerBook. Please help, I'd really like to figure out if I can cook and egg on the CPU properly.

Look on the first page of the "Post your desktop background (PowerPC)" thread. :)
I also have iStat menues (as well as Nano) in my dropbox, tell me if the other links are dead and I'll publicly post it here.

Since this thread was recently resurrected, I am configuring a lot of stuff on my new (to me) G5 Quad. It has two HDDs installed, a 1 TB disk with Leopard and a 500 GB disk with Tiger. I installed iStat Menus 3.19 (the last version supported in PPC) on my Leopard disk using a leftover unused license key. It works perfectly well.

But trying to install 1.3 on my Tiger disk? I can install it but trying to use anything in the prefs panel gives a "Could not load extra" message. Does anyone recall seeing this one before, or found a fix/workaround?

Try repairing permissions under Tiger on that drive that Tiger is installed on.
