    System Prefs won't open from Apple Menu

    But it will open if I go to the Apps folder and select it there. What gives? Is there a way to fix the target of "System Preferences..." under the Apple Menu? Note: This happened after rearranging some OSX user files through OS9. Everything else seems fine. thx, sall

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    Actually, I recall installing Windows 3.0 for the first time... so long ago. and then 3.1 (big improvement) and then 95 and then 98 etc. I do see the similarities between the OSX release and Win95 in terms of the magnitude of the "upgrade". Actually, WinNT vs. Win3.1 is more of a...

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    SimX - No big deal. And, I admit that I can get cynical sometimes, but in the end, I'm just really, REALLY anxious to start working in OSX. I honestly believe that any PC user who gets a good look at it will feel impotent once back on their wintel machines. I'm also a little worried that...

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    SimX, will you please find the disclaimer in Apple's OSX online marketing that clearly states the intent of the March release? You know, the one that claims it was for early adopters. Hmmm, didn't it say on the box "early adopters version"? Oh yeah, that's right... At this point, I...

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    >First: If you bought the public beta of OS X I didn't. Why would I purchase a beta (knowingly)? I purchased the official release, which was so slow that I immediately switched back to 9.1, like most professional mac users. I honestly didn't expect more, though I had hoped to be surprised...

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    >You would need those coupons that came with OS X, right? (rhale1) coupons? i don't recall any coupons... were they in the OSX box from the March release?

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    >And, are OSes really ever 'finished?' (a2daj) too true. i guess i'm just really surprised to see a point release ~600megs. also, what's with $19.95 for S&H for a CD? I can order a music CD and have it delivered for less than that. Registered owners (ahem, beta testers) of OSX...

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    strange... so the release of OSX earlier in the year (before it was really finished) was some sort of marketing thing. we paid money to be beta testers. i'm sure the early release has helped to get developers moving, but it's still a sham. i have to say, though i despise microsoft, they...

    OSX 10.04 - 10.1 Patch... Why not?

    People are talking about not being able to download OSX 10.1 from Apple due to bandwidth issues... and mentioning a file size upwards of 550 megs. I had assumed that the FREE upgrade Apple would make available on their site would be a PATCH, that is, something with a file size less than 80...

    Classic will not start, even after reinstalling

    It fixed itself! Classic and OSX are functioning correctly. One day it wasn't working, the next day it is... Hope it isn't a let down for this thread that I started. It would've been nice to actually have FOUND a solution. But, I'll take it! Finally... :)

    Classic will not start, even after reinstalling

    alexrd, i don't get any error messages at all... just the classic starting progress window that never actually goes anywhere. X doesn't seem to have a problem recognizing where 9.1 is located, 9.1 just never loads - though i can reboot into 9.1 without a problem. i'll try your suggestion...

    Classic will not start, even after reinstalling

    Ulrik, I've given up, actually, and am waiting for 10.1/9.2 release. I reinstalled 10.0, which started Classic just fine, but then I upgraded once again to 10.0.4, and suddenly X could no longer start Classic. I'm tired of messing with it, and considering that a huge upgrade is just a few...

    Classic will not start, even after reinstalling

    Okay... I've reinstalled OSX, which started Classic with no problems... Then I allowed Software Update to patch to 10.0.4., and I can no longer start Classic. Yay! This is really fun! ;) Anyway, both of my drives are formatted as HFS, so no problem there. Maybe somehow the 10.0.4 update is...

    Classic will not start, even after reinstalling

    After researching here as well as other OSX sites, I decided yesterday to redo my system setup to place OSX and 9.1 on different partitions, and to create a small partition on a separate drive for OSX to swap to. So, after reformatting, I installed 9.0 on one partition, then ran the 9.1...

    Administrator Password Bug?

    If I go to System Prefs Users panel, bring up myself (the only user) go to edit, and change the password -- let's say to something with 8 characters -- when I exit and return, the password will show as having 12 characters! Does it always show as having a certain amount of characters for...

    Can't index my own hard drive? Please help!

    For some reason, even though I installed with one user (me) as the administrator, I don't have privileges to do certain things to my hard drive. The most important ones being 1. Indexing (and searching) my drive, and 2. Deleting things from certain parts of my hard drive. This is a 10 gig...
