    i have just gotten back onto my ibook g4 os 10.4.9 after a night of it being down. there were many issues which it spat out at me including
    /code equivalence database opened READ ONLY (R/W failed)
    JNL replay journal failed
    /securityd[43] exited abnormally: abort trap
    /lookupd[50] exited abnormally: hangup
    Root Device mounted read only

    I ran fsck using single user mode and I am back on.
    please explain what might be happening with my kernal or HDD.
    I am taking it to the apple store in a few weeks for them to really help me out, but I don't want it to die before that! :(

    1) Repair Permissions
    2) Run Repair Disk from Disk Utility
    3) Reset PMU

    Let us know what happens next...

    Did the PMU reset help? Or, were there errors on the disk or permissions that were repaired in high numbers?

    It's possible your HD is failing. How old is your equipment?

    ok.. so i restarted with the install disk in and held shift and it repaired the disk and said that such and such was modified... i verifyed the disk and everything is kosher. thanks for the help and the technical guide!

    its an ibook G4 bought August 2005.. I shall ask the genius bar when I manage to get to an apple store... I was worried about it being a bad problem and me just putting "band aids" on it instead of going in for surgery.. how you say.
