    Beware of LookupManager...

    Wow, I was lucky.. /private/var/db/netinfo held some backups of my NetInfo database. I was able to copy the information from local.nidb.old into local.nidb and the machine once again functioned normally. :D ALWAYS BACKUP YOUR NETINFO DATABASE BEFORE TRYING SKANKWARE!!!!!! Words to live by.. :P

    Installing OpenSSH

    Crap.. here's what I've been getting all bloody evening: --23:50:30-- http://www.publicsource.apple.com:80/projects/darwin/1.2/source/other/OpenSSL-0.9.5a-3.1.tar.gz (try: 6) => `OpenSSL-0.9.5a-3.1.tar.gz' Connecting to http://www.publicsource.apple.com:80... connect: Operation timed out...

    I gots the final. :)

    (still trying to reply..) Airport WORKS GREAT!!!! Signal strength seems a bit less than it would under 9.1, but still, it's solid. The network control panel is where they kind of moved Location Manager.. it's a bit confusing, but works. I miss the Location Manager. :( Classic works GREAT...

    I gots the final. :)

    oh yeah.. there's a line in /etc/rc.boot that will change the hostname back to localhost. Change that line, reboot. Life is good. :) Apache is sweet. They've made a nice little "About Apache Web Sharing" page in your /Users/Sites folder :) Having Apache here ROCKS.. my GOD it's cool...

    I gots the final. :)

    Holy shit, I didn't know so many people would reply!! It's working great for me.. people said that 4K78 was this oh-so-slow build, but it's not slow at all on a G4/400 Powerbook with 384mb RAM.... Expect a LOT of updates out of Apple in the next few weeks. Already a lot more Carbonized...

    I gots the final. :)

    Yup.. went down to the local Staples, and there they were... 2 copies! My girlfriend went zinging by me, grabbed both of them, and had hopped over to the register before I could blink twice. She's STILL bouncing around the house. So far.. I'm happy. Very happy. :-) Just wanna change the...

    what a nice mail.app!

    God, Claris Emailer kicked more ass than anything that ever kicked ass before? I love it. I LOVE EMAILER. I wish it would be carbonized, given IMAP and LDAP support and used to replace Mail.app, that's how much I love it. /me cries woefully

    SUN or Apple iMac (I am not a wintrol or anti-mac)

    But... Media Player for Solaris really sucks. There's even a version of IE for Solaris. It sucks worse... I tried it on an Ultra 5 with 512megs of RAM and it absolutely crawled.. ugh..

    macosx.com on Linux !.....yehaww

    Huh? CHeck http://www.versiontracker.com - there's a few MySQL ports already working well. MacOS X Server isn't $499 if you're a student, FYI... :)

    Posting OS X PKGs Online

    Yeah, that really would be a cool idea.. then I don't have to get frustrated trying to compile my own stuff! :D

    Is there a newsreader in the works for Mac OS X PB?

    yeah.. probably worked fine on dp4 (I used it to, member? hehe) but is broken on the public beta :(

    New binary Apache build for Darwin!

    GAH, I cut too much out.. but it actually says this: Apache/1.3.14 Server at localhost.(censored).com Port 80 Don't forget this: [localhost:/usr/sbin] root# httpd -v Server version: Apache/1.3.14 (Darwin) Server built: 10/13/00 19:19:06 [localhost:/usr/sbin] root#

    New binary Apache build for Darwin!

    Uhh... I think I fixed it. The apachectl script didn't really work like I thought it would, and I did ./httpd stop too, which seems to have confused it. ps -aux |grep httpd and ps -aux |grep apache and KILL -9 the process numbers... then re-check to make sure they were all really dead...

    Netscape for OS X

    http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla - Note that it's definately a work in progress, so it'll obviously have some bugs (and some darn debugging code) but I really haven't had too many problems with it.

    New binary Apache build for Darwin!

    @#$%$@#!!! I downloaded and unpacked the new Apache.. first, it dumped everything in my own home directory and created "System" "Library" and "/usr" in my home directory. Probably my fault, but oh well.. so I deleted all that crap, moved the tarball to / and unpacked it there. Yay! It...

    Is there a newsreader in the works for Mac OS X PB?

    I've watched people try and fail to get the dp4 Newswatcher (and carbonized Fetch) working.. *sigh* I too hope that these will make their way over, soon..

    impenetrable OSX?

    Ahh.. very good point. :) At the very least, a nice detailed TIL on how to turn stuff like sunrpc/etc OFF (or filter it out) would be nice. There are a lot of mini-howto's floating around here, but people will tend to look at Apple's support site before anything else. Usually. :)

    impenetrable OSX?

    True, but it's still something that should probably be filtered/off by default. Last thing we need are MacOS X boxes getting hacked and used for DDoS attacks. That's what Red Hat boxes are for :P~ (NOTE: That's a JOKE. No linux distro wars!)

    Office 2001 alternatives?

    Don't forget, StarOffice is now open sourced.. perhaps someone with a)development tools and b)a clue could get ahold of it and have a go at it? :) :) :)
