    On 10.1 I've enabled FTP access in prefs, and started file sharing, but I don't see any ftpd process running when I restart, nor can users ftp in from remote ("access denied"). Any suggestions?

    OS 10.1 breaks XDarwin?

    After updating to OS 10.1 I can no longer get XDarwin to work. I've updated XFree86 to the latest versions that Fink has (Xfree86-base and -rootless), and the latest version of Xdarwin (1.0.3a), and I've checked and rechecked mu path settings, but XDarwin still can't find xinit, apparently...

    problems with apache

    There is a fault in the file /private/etc/httpd/httpd.conf in OS X 10.1 The following line: LoadModule apple_hfs_module libexec/httpd/ should be: LoadModule hfs_apple_module libexec/httpd/ That should fix the problem.

    Why isn't there right-click in OS X yet?

    I have an MS Intellimouse Explorer, and its the best mouse I've ever used, it blows away the Apple Pro mouse. 4-buttons and a scroll wheel, 2 buttons and the scroll wheel are recognized by OS 10 (even better in 10.1) without any added drivers. You can scroll finder windows and terminal windows...

    10.1 New and Hidden Features

    the terminal app now lets you use control-click (or right click if you have a 2-button mouse) to copy, paste, and select all. Little, but hugely useful. Also, my ms intellimouse scroll wheel now works in terminal app and in the finder - without any special drivers.

    SystemDisk util

    You must use the "SystemDisk" utility (found in the "macOS9" folder on the OSX disk) to select an OS X startup disk from OS 9. When using this utility, try selecting a disk by option-double-clicking it. You will see the boot options for that device. If you edit these options and save them, they...
