Can the Mac Mini run iChat? I am running OS 10.6.4 on my Mac Mini 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo machine, and have connected mmy old iChat external camera with a 800 to 400 Firewire cable
When trying to start iChat, I get a message saying "You can't run this version of iChat with this version of Mac OSX. You have iChat 4.0.7. It will not install an iChat update.
What is the reason for this?

Intel iMac 24" 2.8GHz., Mac OS X (10.6.4), 4Gb. SDRAM

    Yes it can run chat.

    10.6.x should have version 5.x of iChat - 10.6.4 has 5.0.3, so it seems that somehow you have the Leopard version, which won't work & won't update.

    You oughtta be able to install just chat from the 10.6 disk, or if not, a reinstall is speedy anyway.
