    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"...

    Hello, Anybody know how to add airport functionality to a powermac g4 400 (yikes)? As it stands I have the yikes wired to the base station which leaves me about 5ft short on the range needed to connect to the computer furthest from the base station. I can't move the computers, and I can't...

    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...

    MIT-SHM question

    I am running 10.2 and have installed XFree86_4.2.0.1-10.2 precompiled as my X server. I need to run enlightenment 16.5 as my window manager from time to time in order to test software that we are working on. Under OS 10.1 SHM was unavailable, but my understanding is that SHM support is built...

    Brain and hazmat thanks for your help :-) I knew it had to be simple once I figured out what question I really needed to ask. I googled for "color ls os x" and came up with several options. Picked one and it does what I want. Appreciate your help.

    how do I get colored output in

    I imagine that this is a silly question, but I can't seem to figure it out. I love the colored output in my linux terminals and would like the same on my mac. I have seen several references to turning this feature on in jaguar, but no clear instructions. Any body willing and able to help...

    Help please with Xwindow server stuff

    Sounds like you want to display remote X apps on your local X server. ssh -X remotehost will set up the display forwarding for you. Once you have logged in in this fashion (with the -X flag) you should be able to launch and interact with X applications on the remote server. If you want to run...
