    Mac Os X on a PC?

    I disagree. You're right about consumers not buying what's in front of them, but that's true in any market. NEXTStep and BeOS were never significantly marketed. Ask most PC users, and they'll tell you they've never heard of either OS. Neither ever appeared on a shelf at CompUSA or Best Buy...

    Mac Os X on a PC?

    Sure, porting OS X to the Intel platform might help win the operating system wars. Far more people use PC computers (cheaper) and may choose Apple's operating system to run on their new PC. But Apple's interested in selling hardware. Mac OS is one of the incentives to buy Apple computers...

    bootstrap_look_up() failed (ipc/send) invalid destination port

    bootstrap_look_up() failed (ipc/send) invalid destination port I'm getting this error from the Sendmail SMTP server. When this happens, it can't recognize local users (RCPT TO: user, user unknown) Any ideas?

    H2 get sendmail working

    1. chmod g-w / Make root directory not group writable. 2. Edit /etc/hostconfig: HOSTNAME=-my.domain.com- # Not convinced this really does anything, but oh well. 3. Edit /etc/rc.boot: hostname my.domain.com domainname domain.com 4. Edit...

    Sendmail

    Yes, he's right. There's no username or password required to talk to an SMTP server. On the other hand, you do need a username and password to talk to a POP or IMAP server (for retrieving your mail from afar). If you're going to set up a POP/IMAP server, I strongly recommend University of...

    Sendmail

    But to actually ANSWER YOUR QUESTION: Yes, that's what it means. You can't go away and use your Mac as an SMTP server. You add the machine to your relay domains file by simply adding a line that is the host name. A sample relay-domains file could look like this: machine1.mydomain.com...

    Sendmail

    Yes, I'll try to explain: Under the default, out of the box install, the SMTP server will not relay mail (that is, accept mail for a user not on the local machine) unless you're connecting from a machine that's 1.) the local machine 2.) a machine in the relay-domains file. Try this...

    SSH in 10.0.1

    The 10.0.1 update essentially replaces telnetd with sshd. The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to log in remotely. I get a "Permission denied" error when I enter my password. I know I'm entering my password correctly. Any ideas?

    Unix File Format vs HFS+?

    Depends on what you're doing. If you are going to be doing a lot of Darwin work, UFS will be more friendly to any UNIX software you install. If not, go with HFS. I've heard it's actually faster. Can anyone confirm this? I know HFS is a lot faster when doing file searches. Plus, you can't index...

    Sendmail

    ---- Original message ----- Unfortunately, Darwin doesn't include support for an "access" file with its default build. You'll have to download sendmail and make a "sendmail.cf" file with support for the access file. (Maybe virtusertable while you're at it.)...

    Sendmail

    Oh yeah, I forgot it had to be hostname full.host.name. RR isn't blocking port 25. If that were the case you wouldn't be getting a "Relaying Denied" message from your mail server at all. Check /var/log/mail.log Make sure you've got your domain name in the local-host-names file in /etc/mail.

    Sendmail

    If sendmail isn't a running process start it like this: /usr/sbin/sendmail -bd -q15m or -q1h, or whatever. This seems to be a problem, though. Even when MAILSERVER is set to "Yes" in hostconfig, the daemon doesn't seem to start when I reboot. I have to do it manually. Another tip...

    Yes, I'm not stupid. After I quit the terminal the changes still don't take place. Any ideas there?

    Defaults Trouble

    When I first installed, I set the TerminalOpaqueness like this: defaults write com.apple.terminal TerminalOpaqueness .5 Now, if I type the same with a different value, nothing changes. defaults read com.apple.terminal TerminalOpaqueness reports the new value, but the windows don't...

    Sendmail

    Yes, I got sendmail to start listening by chmod'ing the root directory. (Figured it out shortly after posting my first message.) Now it won't recognize emails to users. (User unknown error.) I've got the domain in my local-host-names file. I'll try the relay-domains file now, but that seems...

    Sendmail

    Never had problems with this on PB, but I've got the final now and it's really frustrating me. Sendmail won't start. It keeps telling me that /etc/mail/local-host-names is in a group writable directory. Changing the permissions doesn't do a thing. This question has been posted before, but...

    Final Install Problems

    Yep, I installed on the first half and it worked fine. (Even with UNIX file system.) That seems strange. My copy of PB booted from the second partition fine. One thing I'm very pleased with is that they included the Developer CD in the distribution. On to playing...
