    Xdarwin and 10.2.3

    I have had trouble in the past getting shm compiled into X. At least I think I have given that when I run enlightenment it complains about a lack of SHM support. Is there a way to check for SHM support via the command line or some such tool? Thanks, Harrison

    configd fails to start

    Man is this little ibook hosed! The first sign of a problem was the lack of airport and battery icons in the menu bar. Then I noticed that any changes that I make in SystemPreferences / Network fail to be updated. I think I have tracked it down to the fact that configd is not being started /...

    Automatic sftp/ssh

    Unless you must use sftp you might want to give scp a try. Assumeing that you have your ssh-keys set up so that logging on to your remote box doesn't require a password the following command should work as a cron entry. "scp remoteUserName@remoteHostName:/path/to/file /path/to/local/file"...

    MIT-SHM question

    I think I might be about to give in :-( 5th compile in 3 days and still no SHM in enlightenment. Couldn't get "fink apropos xfree" to give me the wanted output, so after cleaning out all references to anything other than xfree86-4..2.0-12 I tried to reinstall X with fink. First tried "fink...

    [HOWTO] - Speed up DNS lookups in OSX

    Everything is working well, but I can't get Named to start at boot. Once I start I can launch a terminal and run /Library/StartupItems/Named/Named and it is fine. Added some debug stuff into Named/Named and it seems as though the script never gets executed. Any thoughts on why this might be...

    MIT-SHM question

    OK, didn't do it so I decided to try it with fink. Changed fink.conf to point at unstable/main and unstable/crypto, got rid of all the old X packages and rebuilt the whole thing. I obviously did something wrong cause now I am back to and no SHM in sight. I would greatly...

    MIT-SHM question

    Hmmn... I checked out from cvs and 6 hours later my build is finished. Looks like I am now running Xfree86_4.2.99.1. Sadly I still have no SHM under enlightenment. Any ideas how I can check to see if SHM is otherwise enabled, or what I missed during my build? I followed the cvs checkout...
