    DVD Playback in 10.1

    The DVD Player in MacOS X 10.1 only supports those macs that were natively supported by the DVD Player 2.x series under MacOS 9. I have a Blue and White G3/400 that shipped with the DVD playback in hardware via the Rage 128. I have installed a Radeon PCI and ever since then I have had to use a...

    Sounds in OS X? Request for a tip!

    You should be able to put the sound files in your local Library folder, found under your home folder. If there isn't a Sounds folder in there, make one.

The other gotcha...

    I downloaded the ::: one, and the new error I get is this: configure: error: Cannot find tgetent. Build will fail without it. I got that as a warning last time, not an error. JT

    I didn't do anything special with the configure parameters, just ran ./configure. I think the problem is that I'm using a different source archive to you. I was using the ircii-pana-75p3.tar.gz archive. I'll give the other one a go and see what happens. Thanks, JT

    Mounting NT AppleShare Volumes

    Apple docs clearly state that AppleShare connections over Appletalk are not supported in the Beta.
