The "allow remote login" thing only allows SSH, not telnet. You should not be using telnet anyway.
Turn on the "allow remote login" shiny button and try <tt>ssh -l [username] [host]</tt>. It should work even with the default SSH that comes with 10.0.4.
You can replace the stock ssh...
*.dev.lqd said: That's -two- instances finishing SIMULTANEOUSLY in 1.6 minutes. Both processes hovered around 95% CPU utilization, but then again
they were two seperate processes vying for clock cycles
The benchmark has one thread. You ran 2 instances of the bench mark simultaneously on a...
Optimizing is critical for good performance on <i>any</i> system.
Even though a riced up thunderbird finished the bench mark a lot faster than the iBook, the PPC processor performed the same task using fewer clock cycles.
Some of it's caused by the varying degrees of optimization that are...

You'll probably need around 1 GB just to get the OS installed.
I ran into problems last week reinstalling Mac OS X by itself onto a UFS partition. It refused to start the Classic environment using OS 9 from a separate partition and it failed to detect my AirPort. So, I reformatted and tried...
You're absolutely right about gcc. It's rough around the edges and lacking some features found in several nicer compilers. :cool:
It's "good enough" for a lot of things, though, and I'm glad the GNU tools are available, if only because it makes it easy to use random Linux and *BSD stuff in...
Because it is more Bourne compatible than ash?
It wouldn't be all that big of a project to put together a Bourne compatible shell in-house. But rather than re-inventing the wheel, why not license the Korn shell? It's compatible and quite inexpensive. Most commercial unices use ksh88 as...
Well, it turns out that Apple has decided to use the Z shell for /bin/sh. Zsh is bourne compatible and so it doesn't break anything, yet it seems rather baroque to use a full featured shell intended for interactive use as the standard system /bin/sh.
In an email on 27 June 2001, <a...
Wow, they really DO use zsh. :eek:
I'm wondering if replacing /bin/sh with a plain old nice, light and fast Bourne shell would help scripts run faster.
Are there any Apple system scripts that DEPEND on zsh? There has got to be a reason why they chose it.
Thanks for the info, iconara. I didn't realize tcsh did it that way.
On a somewhat-related topic, someone told me that /bin/sh in Mac OS X is actually zsh (!) instead of a plain old bourne shell. Do you know if that's true?
Using zsh for /bin/sh wouldn't break anything (AFAIK) since zsh...
