10.4: A caution on support for iPhoto2 in 10.4 Apps
Tiger only hintThis is more of a warning than a tip. Remember when iPhoto was freely downloadable? That was iPhoto 1 and 2. Running iPhoto 2 under Tiger writes the following warning to /private/var/log/system.log:
Applications/iPhoto.app/Contents/MacOS/iPhoto: The function CGSDictionarySetObjectForKey is obsolete and will be removed in a Tiger update. Unfortunately, this app, or a library it uses, is using this obsolete function, and is thereby contributing to an overall degradation of system performance.
The message is repeated for five other functions in iPhoto 2.

Despite its coolness factor, I'll probably never use GarageBand or even iMovie; this TiBook 800 doesn't have a DVD burner; and iTunes generates revenue, so it's still freely downloadable. That leaves paying for iLife just to keep iPhoto working, and that's not going to happen. Nice excuse for a new box, I know, but I just got my wife a new AlBook, so that's out as well. Bummer.

I get this same error in Pages so it must be a system problem not a particular application problem:

Whilst probably not 100% legal, you could just copy your wife's iPhoto if you got her a newPowerBook. Or I bet you can find iLife '04 for a bargain price on the internet if you want. I have to say though, comparing iPhoto 4 to iPhoto 5 it really is worth the upgrade, so from 2 to 5 I imagine this is also the case

Actually, you can't. it comes on the restore CD, and the restore CD only works on the system type with which it is included. Not that I tried or anything...

I haven't tried it, but you shouldn't need to "install" the program from any CDs, just copy it from one machine's Applications folder to the other's.

I've long given up on iPhoto2 and am too miserly to pay for iLife '05 when all I'll get is an update to iPhoto. I'm happily using Lightbox to manage my photos. So how do I stop iPhoto from starting up every time I plug in my camera?

Open up Image Capture and then select Preferences. There is an option on choosing the application that will start when the camera is connected.

I get the same errors from OmniGraffle 3.2 (v74.5) that came bundled with my new G5 w/ 10.4.0. I have upgraded to 10.4.1 and don't know if the errors came before or after the update.

The functions I have noticed in the logs are:
CGSReadObjectFromCString
CGSCreateDictionary
CGSDictionary
CGSDictionarySetObjectForKey
CGSSetGStateAttribute
CGSGetElementForCStringKey
CGSDictionaryObjectForKey
