    Crazy perl problem!

    If you want to look through what runs on a regular basis, take a look at /etc/daily, /etc/weekly and /etc/monthly - at a quick glance, I didn't see any perl looking stuff... but that doesn't mean much. A lot of space can get filled up with virtual memory, but 3 GB sounds a bit much... I don't...

    How to set up NAT w/ dial-up connection?

    The easy way: There used to be a program called GNAT (now called IPNetShareX) that I used about a year ago - worked great. I never looked into what was going on at as low a level as you're talking about.

    X11: How to start Mac OSX application from remote

    Regarding running telnet because ssh is blocked: have you tried running ssh on a different port (ie: use 23 instead of the default 22) - again, like my other suggestion, I think it would require building from source yourself... but it would certainly be more secure. (I actually do some...

    X11: How to start Mac OSX application from remote

    I think it's possible to do some of what you want... First order of business: telnet. If you want to use telnet (not suggested over public networks), you can turn it on manually by taking out the comment in the file /etc/inetd.conf (and you may need to restart either the daemon or the...

    using tar to Backup applications

    ...some random thought/ideas. As far as I know, tar will work on Cocoa apps, but not on carbon ones - I could be way off base on that, however. You might try using ditto instead, although that will do a copy, not an archive action. The other thing to consider (although a little extreme...

    NAT Problems...

    I haven't tried with 10.1.4 yet, but I know that previously, the HD and monitor sleeping was not a problem... but the *computer* sleeping was. (ie: set the sleep to never, and then a separate sleep time for HD and monitor) I assume that's because the doesn't listen to anything except keyboard...

    troubles installing Perl modules with CPAN.pm

    Are you using the most recent version of the MacOS X developer tools? It might also be worth it to install fink and some of the developer tools that come with that to see if they don't have the same issue. (Actually, I'm not sure that will help, since I'm not sure they have an alternate...

    10.1.4: This is so not funny :(

    If you're booting into single user mode (ie: straight to command line, not to the user window first), then I don't think the system is using NetInfo, but the normal /etc files. I may be wrong with that, but that was my understanding of the behavior of the system.

    NAT Problems...

    Did you have rules in ipfw that got flushed out? It looks like you were just blocking the traffic (probably on the way back in). I'm curious, since I have a linux box as my NAT box running iptables, but I want to learn more about ipfw. I think it has a way to accept related connections, but I...

    troubles installing Perl modules with CPAN.pm

    CPAN is a really nice tool, but since it automates almost the entire process, it isn't too useful all the time. If you have a few packages that you want to install, I would suggest getting them off of www.cpan.org yourself, un-tar and install them by hand. Its usually a fairly easy and...

    /Users not mounting

    There are two ways I can think of off the top of my head. The easy (command line) way is to type 'mount' or 'df' at a command prompt and look through the output. It should be more or less straight forward. The graphical way is to use the Disk Utility, and I seem to remember that it had that...

    Toolbar Scripts and the Script Menu Extra

    Unfortunately, the script menu "knows" that the things select are scripts that need to run through an installed script engine. The Finder toolbar, on the other hand, tries to open the file using the Finder... which is going to have the same effect as double-clicking the file. The only...

    E-mail attachment problem: can't attach greyed-out apps to e-mail

    I'm guessing that what you're seeing is the fact that only *files* can be attached, not folders. Some applications are really folders/packages. For example, if you right-click on Mail in the finder and choose "Show Package Contents" you can wander through the Mail.app "folder". To send...

    /Users not mounting

    This is kind of an old response, but it probably should go up here for the record. I took testuser's suggestion about removing the extra IDE drive from the system. It was miraculous! :) The system boot over twice as fast, launching of apps and logins are much faster all around. Amazing...

    Nessus under OSX

    I know this was an old thread, but I was having a problem with compiling nessus, and was curious about the same issue. Specifically, to FalseProphet, did you ever get it to work? I ran into a memory issue (it complained about one of the libraries, I think... its too late for my brain to...

    /Users not mounting

    On first install, I don't think OS X has a fstab file - I had to create one. (There were other fstab.[something] files, but not a plain fstab one.) On reading through posts, I found one (posted by testuser, I believe) that suggested putting an entry in fstab to force a mount. So I did. You...

    /Users not mounting

    Right now, I have this entry in my /etc/fstab file: /dev/disk1s10 /Users hfs rw 1 2 This is to mount a separate partition as the /Users directory (I'm doing this because of the 8 GB limit on the boot partition on the Beige G3s). Most of the time this works perfectly, but...

    10.1 Install CD won't boot on beige G3

    This is mostly off topic... but that's kind of funny. My wife has a wintel background as well (mine's Mac and Linux) and we sometimes get into joking arguments about Mac vs. PC - although either one of us is happy using whatever is available. Anyway, when I was having similar issues, my...

    10.1 Install CD won't boot on beige G3

    Video? Hm... kind of sounds like Tech Support clutching at straws... still, I suppose anything is possible. :) It might be interesting to be drastic and go as far as removing the battery and resetting the motherboard. WARNING: I was informed by tech support at apple that it was not a good...
