    I have TIGER 10.4.1 and ever since was installed the crashes.
    I have no idea how to solve the problem.

    I can´t even open the by itself. The error says:

    2005-06-22 23:04:08 -0500

    Link (dyld) error:

    bad local relocation length

    Any ideas? heard 10.4.2 is comming up

    Try forcing an update of prebindings -- dyld is the daemon that handles library binding. To do this, in Terminal, type:

    sudo update_prebinding -root / -force -debug

    And reboot immediately after it completes. To be safe, you might also repair permissions right before updating prebinding (either with disk utility or by sudo diskutil repairpermissions / in Terminal). The specific reason is that it's possible, in principle, for an otherwise feasible prebinding to fail because of permissions issues....

    Had the same error with Google Chrome 12.x on Mac OS 10.5.8, and this solution worked for me, thanks! :)

    (This is an old thread, but still relevant imho.)
