    10.1.3 optimizing crashed G4...

    Hey all- My Sawtooth G4 locked up while doing the optimization part of the 10.1.3 update, and I had to actually hit the reset switch. Now the machine reports that 10.1.3 is installed, and uname -a reports kernel 5.3, but I'm afraid that I may have messed something up. What exactly does the...

    linker errors with stl in OSX 10.1.1

    Hey all- Anyone doing STL work with c++ on MacOSX? I'm trying to compile a test program that uses ropes, but I get a linker error: [toad_hall:~/projects/c++] zesty% c++ ropetest.cpp /usr/bin/ld: Undefined symbols: __t4rope2ZcZt9allocator1Zc._S_min_len The code is: #include...

    Can't start Classic since release

    Hey all- It worked in the beta, and I've tried every update that's come out (now up to 10.0.4), and Classic will just not start using the same extensions and control panels that work fine when booting straight OS9. Classic *looks* like it's going to start ... the extensions load, no...

    Lost telnet ability

    I realized what the problem I was having with ssh was ... I wasn't enabling ssh in any of my telnet programs. When I couldn't figure out why I could not ssh from outside my firewall, I realized I didn't unblock port 22 instead of 23. Now everything's running, and I guess I'll stick with ssh.

    Lost telnet ability

    Hey all- Since installing 10.0.1, I cannot telnet into my Mac. Since I primarily use it for unix development, and typically from another machine, this is a bad thing. :( I see that ssh is now up and running (the telnetd daemon isn't running, but ssh is) but I cannot even log in using that...

    Yes, lpd / lpr is there ... I've been trying to figure out how to submit a job using lpr to my printer, but I haven't been very successful, even though it's up and running.

    Anyone know about this?

    Hey all- I just got an advisory from my isp regarding anybody who runs any flavor of Unix and uses the NTP (Network Time Protocol ... the ntpd daemon) I'm wondering if this vunerability is in MacOS X as well. Hope Apple knows about it.

    printer queues anyone?

    Hey all- I have OSX up and running with my printer installed and working (even though it's an HP, I had to configure it as a LaserWriter IINT) and I can print to it just fine from any aqua-based app that has printing enabled. It should be noted that the printer is on my network, not attached...

    Information about compiling GCC under OSX

    You are correct that the compilers (cc & c++) are based on gcc, but the issue I was facing was cross-platform compiling...I wanted to build a version of gcc that would output to the Palm Pilot (there is a gcc development kit available for free, but it requires recompiling gcc to allow for...

    Information about compiling GCC under OSX

    Sorry to say, but if you wanted to create a totally seperate version of GCC under OSX, currently you can't do it. Gotta stick with what Apple gives us for now.

    Unicode works beautifully!

    A list of fonts shows that there are sets for practically every language, so presumably a web page in any language in theory should show up right (if it's coded in the meta tag correctly). Dunno about the keyboard stuff, though.

    lpr in OSX ... anyone have working?

    Hey all- I have a printer on my ethernet network, an HP 2100 TN. It works fine in all gui environments; I can print from any OSX or classic application to it just fine. However, I am not having any success getting it to work with the command line. I have a number of text files, postscript...

    Graphite Mode?

    I read that a number of designers asked for a mode like graphite, so that the aqua color would not detract from the images on the screen. I think this is placate the folks who really do spend the $$$ to buy the fancy monitors with the graphite casing and the shade over the front. Personally...

    Unicode works beautifully!

    Specifically, of course, when the sites specify in the meta content tag either charset=x-sjis or Shift_JIS (there may be others, but those are the two I've found most frequently). Ironically, it *doesn't* show up properly in the title tag.

    Unicode works beautifully!

    ...Was on a Japanese website in Internet Explorer, and everything came up beautifully rendered in kanji. Plus, I was able to select the text. Figuring what they hey, I hit copy, then fired up TextEdit and did paste ... and the characters stayed in kanji! This is exciting because NT/2000...

    Thoughts on OS-X/UNIX/and MacOS

    devnull- yes, i agree that apache could use a nice gui. actually, a *lot* of the underpinnings could use a nice gui, but the fact of the matter is, nobody's had a chance to! it's perfectly conceivable that someone knowledgeable in apache configuration could write an app in cocoa or carbon if...

    Thoughts on OS-X/UNIX/and MacOS

    I would like to point out that a regular mac user does not need to launch terminal at all. This is still a mac in that it runs regular mac apps the way it always did. I love using the command line, so I do so. My wife uses Photoshop and never even knows it's there. The average user need not be...

    Bash 2.04 works in MacOS X ... here's how

    Hey all- In keeping with trying to get everything gnu to work with MacOS X, bash version 2.04 works with OSX. Here's how to build it: go to and grab the tar sources of bash-2.04 (bash-204.tar.gz). do the standard unzipping and tarring in the directory it creates, run...

    Changing to bash

    Hey - What version did you download? I downloaded 2.04, ran ./configure (having to supply my own config, which I called ppc-netbsd) and it created a set of makefiles just fine, compiles, but gives me link errors. Was this a simple compile for you, or did you have to fiddle with the source?
