okay, my dock's been acting funny lately
i keep it on the left side of the screen, hidden
and it doesn't show up when i move my mouse over
it only shows up if i go into System Preferences
and move around the Size bar
also
it's only visible now if i deactivate the auto-hide feature
its suuuuuper frusterating!
anyone else experience this?
im running 10.4.2

Hmm have you installed front row? Mine did excatly the same, a reboot solved the problem though... I suspect the front row install to be the problem (in my case anyway)

yes, yes i did!
my Finder doesnt work the same, either
instead of clicking once and going through menus
i must hold down the mouse button to even navigate it
im going to uninstall, reboot, and see what happens
ill post again if anything changes

still problems with dock, still problems with Finder
Front Row was completely removed........
i tried to restart and my desktop items and Dock disappeared like normal....
but nothing happened, i had to hold the power button down

It works fine with me. I'm using 10.4.2 with FrontRow installed.

Is this the iBook G4 that is having problems? My friend's completely crashed, and he had to send it to Cupertino for repair. It started out, however, with problems such as these. He had no alterations to the system software installed whatsoever. He's not as advventuresome as I when it comes to that. wink
