    Mount ext2 FS in MacOS X

    MacOSX uses the Mach 3.0 kernel. this is a microkernel. in fact, this is _the_ microkernel. windows NT-2000-XP also uses a microkernel. the GNU system (AKA GNU/HURD) also uses a microkernel, the mach 3 microkernel, the same as Mac OS X. the darwin implementation of Mach 3.0 is known as...

    Deleting files with umlaute in name

    try emacs $ emacs /path/to/directory emacs has a directory mode which will let you delete files in a directory, and it is smarter at understanding characters and stuff. if that doesn t work, then you ve got a bug. submit it to apple bug report.

    Not sure if this was covered already, will Jaguar cd upgrade all previous versions?

    izzat so? to be honest, i attibute the lack of jaguar upgrade disks to the fact of people pirating 10.1 (puma). i view this as our punishment for spreading the knowledge on how to cheat copies of puma, so we all have to pay for jaguar.

    Should I stay or leave? (trolls or no trolls?)

    I would hate to see Ed go. He is very moderate and can keep the most incendiary threads from going haywire, responds to everyones posts, keeps old favorites alive in perpetuam, and defuses those really tense hostile arguments. He is a good moderator. We need him. However, i am not ready...

    Where did my timed startup go???

    that would make sense i guess. that stuff should be OS independent, it is stored in firmware. haven t heard whether it will be in jaguar, which i assume means that it will not. never know though....

    Networking airport/non-airport computers

    So with those older models, i m not sure if it works or not. there do exist routers that route incoming and outgoing traffic through one interface. it is a little bad for your network security to send network traffic out to your ISP, but OK. So there is one way to see if it works: try it...

    Linus Torvalds says "Mac OS X is Crap"!

    Linus' UNIX kernel, known as linux, is based on the original architecture. it is a monolithic UNIX kernel. in other words, it is a dinosaur. in the 80s and 90s, a lot of research was done into OSes and kernels at universities, and a lot of new ideas were come up with. ideas that are more...

    Networking airport/non-airport computers

    do you have a newer airport base station with two ethernet ports? if you do, then this should be quite easy. if you have the older model with only 1 ethernet port, then i m not sure whether its possible. witth 2: plug the uplink port of your hub into the LAN port of your airport...

    virtual consoles?

    yeah, i like virtual console a lot myself. no idea about that in OSX, i would only point out that it might have to have support for that in the kernel; i think that is the case with linux. i am interested in what it takes to have an X server run on more than one virtual console. i did not...

    ifconfig and IP leasing

    i suppose you could use ISC dhcp client daemon. it is the one that linux usually uses, and i m pretty sure it compiles with no problems on OSX. the only worry i would have was interference between having two dhcp client daemons. i would want to disable the default daemon. this would probably...

    ifconfig and IP leasing

    it s never true that noone really knows. you just have to hope that someone who knows winds up reading this thread. anyway, there is a file at /var/db/dhcpclient/leases/hardware_address . it seems like it should be the file you are looking for, but it only tells you the dhcp IP address...

    three fstabs? which is which?

    its pretty viable, and worth doing. how many drives does your computer have? if you only have one internal drive, then there is no chance of the device names changing. if you have a couple, then fstab might not work out for you. it doesn t work for me, but i have 3 IDE and 1 SCSI drive...
