Currently Being ModeratedAug 4, 2009 11:51 AM (in response to Glenn Carter)Yes, that would appear to solve this. Did the Terminal check and that told me that it wasn't right. So I did un-install and it would seem to have ended the messages.

Sorry this is off-topic, but I wanted to ask you about some previous info you shared here:
That thread has closed, hence why I tracked you through this thread.
Does this discussion forum have a Private Messaging function or other way to talk off-forum?

Bear in mind that virtually everything in that thread relates to Leopard (10.5). But I see from your stats that you are running 10.4 (Panther). So naturally, options like Time Machine will not work in Panther. Looking forward to your question nonetheless.

Currently Being ModeratedAug 8, 2009 11:11 AM (in response to pascalim)Yep, this worked for me.
I ran the Terminal command and got a message that some internal resource was missing. Downloaded the iTunes installer from Apple, trashed iTunes and reinstalled and now everything seems to be OK.
Interesting enough when running the Terminal command after the re-install, I don't get the "Valid on disk" statement, I just get the Terminal prompt again. But, no missing resource message either.
Anyway, seems to have fixed it, guess I'll know for sure in a few days.Power Mac G5 Dual 2.3GHz, Mac OS X (10.5)

Currently Being ModeratedSep 4, 2009 10:50 PM (in response to pascalim)Thanks for posting this information. Uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes worked for me too. At first I just reinstalled, but that didn't work, so it seems the uninstall is necessary.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 11, 2009 6:00 AM (in response to DCIFRTHS)Thanks pascalim,
And thanks to that Apple engineer that gave the golden advice of trashing and reinstalling iTunes. I am using Snow Leopard and iTunes 9 now, so it kind of disappointed me that they still not fix that bug in the Firewall settings.
I am still dazzeled though, how it also repaired all my other programs that were generating annoying firewall messages for incoming network connections. Or most likely, it did somehow reset the firewall.
Anyhow, good luck to you all! As the dutch say: bedankt!2x MacBook Pro 2008/4,1 2.4GHz Intel Core2Duo - 4GB 667Mhz DDR2 - 200GB 7200Rpm, Mac OS X (10.6), LaCie 750GB eSATA 3Gb/s (although my FireWire 800 beats still this!?), iPod touch 16GB
Currently Being ModeratedSep 12, 2009 9:43 PM (in response to CaptPicard)Thanks for the tips!
I have just one question: did everyone who had this problem customize the iTunes icon (perhaps with Candybar?). Like I did. ^_^
Because if so, that's what did it. We broke the code-signing. That's why the check from the Apple engineer is to run codesign...MacBook Pro 15" matte screen, Mac OS X (10.6)

Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2009 4:01 PM (in response to Ralfsmithphilom)My problem was customizing the iTunes icon too. This fixed the problem though. So thanks!
Question for you Ralfsmithphilom however... did you have any problems changing the mail or iTunes icon with the newest version of Candybar? I had to manually change them and couldn't at all with Candybar.Macbook Pro 13" 2.53 Ghz/500GB/4GB, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 13, 2009 7:07 PM (in response to pascalim)+Open terminal and enter "codesign -v /Applications/iTunes.app"+
+If the output of this command is anything but "Valid on disk", uninstall iTunes and reinstall it. This fixed my problem.+
Thanks for the tip, that fixed it for me.

Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2009 7:56 AM (in response to pascalim)+*Here's why this solves the problem:*+
- Open terminal and enter "codesign -v /Applications/iTunes.app"
Note: Using this particular command may output nothing if there are no errors to be found on a signed application.
Explanation: Mac OS X automatically checks applications for signatures when establishing application-specific firewall rules. This way, if the application changes for whatever reason (or becomes compromised), the application will not match the signature that the firewall is aware of. If, for any number of reasons, iTunes (or any other app) becomes altered, the signature will not match the original one the firewall recognizes. Uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes will correct the problem.
*Technical stuff*: Technically speaking, the problem exists with the signature of the application, not the application itself. Generating a new signature will also correct the problem. However, there should be a reason as to why the application does not match its signature (eg corruption). This is why a reinstallation is recommended.MacBook Pro (Unibody) | iMac Core Duo | PowerBook G4, Mac OS X (10.6.1), Dual Booting Linux
