    OSX and restarting

    it doesn't show, but MacOS X is doing a disk scan (very important), unlike MacOS 8.5 to 9.x where you can cancel the disk scan (and repair) and unlike pre 8.5 where it wouldn't do any scan. (if your computer had a delay after crashing with pre 8.5, it wasn't caused by it doing a disk scan... )

    DVD player update 3.0.1 is now available through software update "delivers improved performance and stability, as well as support for Blue and White Power Mac G3 and Power Mac G4 systems with PCI-based graphics." I'm guessing that means the ones with the hardware DVD add-on with the Blue...

    System Hangs on launching applications

    yes, you need to enable the root user in order to login that way I can't remember the steps to enable root, I've never had to use it on any MacOS X machine yet. you should probably reboot, after the chime, hold down command-s (to startup in single user mode) at the "#" prompt, type...

    quicktime is SLOW

    from what I've seen, MacOS X does not seem to have full acceleration for the Rage IIc or Pro chipsets that were in the early iMacs the difference between a Bondi Rev/b iMac and my iMac DV (with it's Rage 128, 400 Mhz G3) is amazing when doing basic things like dragging a window, a 300 Mhz...

    They Bounce forever...

    This bouncing but never launching seems to have several causes On some people's machines, they are able to remove one or more carbon apps from automatically starting up at login, and things work fine I haven't seen if any of these people have also tried doing a fsck -y in single user to...

    [Process completed]

    I have heard of this before, related to a problem with the tcsh being loaded... hopefully someone else will be able to give you a specific fix for it, just letting you know that others have seen the problem before.

    help! imac dv se won't boot at all.

    my quicksilver doesn't keep time

    I've read of this happening before I'll do some digging tonight to be sure but I think that resetting the power manager (CUDA button it's sometimes also called) on the motherboard might fix it... again, I'll find out specifics and post here again, to make sure you get the right fix.

    stange: icons keep jumping in the dock but nothing happens!

    so much for my earlier post... at least on this particular Titanium PowerBook G4 (500 Mhz) the problem keeps re-occuring when the carbon apps stop launching properly, he can run the iTunes 2.0.1 installer, and things will work again, for a day or two, then it breaks again next time it...
