    Oh, no not again: Error when making

    Hi! I got this program that I really want to run on my PB G4. It has a simple command-line interface - but I can't get it to compile (or link, actually). It's delivered with a make file but not with a configure script. Works fine on Linux. I'd be grateful for any lead that can let me get it...

    Linux - os X problem

    I'm running a Linux (RH 6.2) box as a backup file server and os X PB on my iBook. I just noticed a problem and wonder if this is a bug, a known bug or perhaps another kind of problem. 1. On the Linux box I have a symbolic link in my home directory to another directory on that same box for...
