    authentication

    I'm wondering, how might I go about having a password-checking function in my program (in c/c++) for an OS X user? Like the "login" program -- a user enters a login name and a password, and the program checks it with (netinfo) to see if the password matches the encrypted one stored away...

    okay, if you're going to do this (screw easy stuff, this is how you learn), insert your os x CD and boot single user. (how do i do that?!) okay, to boot single user hold down on apple + S while booting off the CD. a console should appear after a minute of stuff scrolling by the screen, and from...

    AddUser on MacOS X client ??

    If you would also like to see the info on the screen fly at startup (like linux), you can issue OS X to boot in verbose mode by either holding down on apple + v at startup, or typing as root ' nvram boot-args="-v" '

    pppoe

    Still on the topic of ppp, how might I manage to get pppoe working from the prompt, without going to internet connect or specifying for it to automatically connect when a TCP connection is started? I'm totally lost. I can't get apple's open source ppp/pppd project to compile, so...

    pppd

    :eek:I did some snooping around an AOL (how lame is that?) beta for OS X, and I stumbled across a file that caught my interest: "pppd". Now, this file was hidden inside the contents of the app (the "Online Files" and etc were within the Resources), so AOL, being as, as...(what's that word?) as...

    Go developers! Go!

    I am afraid of one thing, and one thing only: a lack of software being developed for OS X. It seems like something's happening, but everything I see so far is either a totally new Cocoa app that does basically nothing, or a Carbonized app that runs perfectly in OS 9 and has billions of bugs and...

    Compiling GAIM for OS X

    Hey, perhaps I could help you out: maybe you can grab a header (gnu, standard of course) off an x86 machine with linux loaded with all those useless features that allow them to use 30 year old joysticks and so on. If you dont have access to one, try downloading a gnu distribution of gcc (the...

    cout and cin

    Before I say what I must say, this "bug" has been apparent throughout all the minor 10.0.* releases, and the original dev tools CD that comes with OS X as well as that installed with the dev tools update that's been out a few days as of today. #include <iostream.h> int main() { int a...

    color ls!!!

    Hey, for those of you bored out of your mind looking at the same old black on white or white on black scheme in the terminal, I have a new compiled color version of ls that will function perfectly with a few adjustments: As root: (or using sudo which gets annoying) - Download this...
