    UnZip 5.41 on OSX

    for the average user there is no advantage. For me, I needed something that I could script via the shell. As far as I could tell neither OpenUp nor Stuffit had that functionality. I have to write a small app that recursively opens up thousands of DOS zipped files looking for a specific file. So...

    UnZip 5.41 on OSX

    well huh. 8) It was already installed. (I have the dev tools as well so I don't know if it was there before either) I never thought of checking, I just assumed it wasn't. I have version 5.20. It'd be cool to have v5.41, but I'm not picky. Thanks for the heads up. --glen

    UnZip 5.41 on OSX

    I've been trying to get UnZip 5.41 ( ftp://ftp.info-zip.org/pub/infozip/UnZip.html ) compiled and running on OSXPB. Has anyone else had success or know of another command line utility that will work with windows zip files? gzip does not. any help would be appreciated. --glen

    gmp on OSXPB

    Well unfortunately that did not do the trick. If I configure it for powerpc it gives me the same errors as my original post. The same goes for powerpc64...

    gmp on OSXPB

    ok, well I've had a little luck installing this, but not completely. I've ran configure with the flag --target=none and that seemed to compile everything. however a make check gives these errors:<br> <tt>cc -g -o t-mul t-mul.o ../../.libs/libgmp.a /usr/bin/ld: archive: ../../.libs/libgmp.a...

    gmp on OSXPB

    So, who's having luck installing GNU's Multiple Precision Arithmetic Library? I've attempted an install, but I get errors. ./configure seems to go fine, but make hoarfs with these errors: <tt> Making install in mpn Making install in tests make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'...

    Auto Screen Lock Button

    Actually do not set a screen saver activation timeout period! If you open an alias to the screen saver app, then the screen is locked for 30 minutes, and the screen saver control panel will open another screen saver and you'll have two running and I can only ever get out of one. So that's bad...

    Auto Screen Lock Button

    Here's a way to make a screen locking button in OSX. First of all use Mike Elston's Screen Locker app to enable the built in screen saver password option: http://www.versiontracker.com/moreinfo.fcgi?id=9047 Set the auto screen saver timeout activation to something normal like 30 minutes, or...

    Finder not refreshing.

    once I download something from IE5 to the desktop it will appear as soon as I click on the desktop. However, when I install an app, and it drops the executable for it into the Applications folder, it will not appear there as easily. I usually have to sherlock search for the app name, and then...

    I want Pine.

    ok, well I seem to have found my own solution. That inevitably happens immediately after a cry for help. 8) I found this link in a google search http://www.peak.org/apple/macosx/server/Applications/Network/Email/CLI/Pine/ I don't know what peak.org is, or if I should trust a binary off...

    I want Pine.

    ok, I've been trying to compile and install pine all day. I downloaded ftp://ftp.cac.washington.edu/pine/pine.tar.Z and as root ungzipped/untarred it. Then it says to use the build command and specify which port to compile for. I have tried (as root) to ./build bsd, and ./build nxt, which will...
