In Topic: Complete Updates for Newbies and All -- Currently 10.5.5 Combo (Only Intel CPUs)

24 November 2008 - 07:02 AM

I had been running Kalyway 10.5.2 plus the Kalyway 10.5.3 update for quite some time, skipped 10.5.4 because I never saw an actually straight up modded update for it, only new full OS releases.

finally today I just decided I'd wipe and reinstall with one of the newer releases, so backed up a bunch of my {censored} to the second drive and headed here to do some research on what the latest releases were when I found this thread, and figured I'd give it a go.

I installed pretty much as instructed, erring towards the "restore old drivers" options when unsure, but now upon booting I find my PS2 ports are not responding, and that whenever I click About this Mac, it logs me out and boots me to the login screen.

The former I have a feeling is probably somehow related to the PS2 "fixes" that I for some reaosn left on defaults with both checked, but the latter leaves me clueless. Everything else seems to work fine so far.

Hardware is as follows:

P4 2.4Ghz
Dell mobo (ICHx based)
1.5GB DDR400 RAM
Nvidia Geforce 6600 256mb

Anyone have any idea how I could fix these problems, before I go and just wipe it and install the iAtkos 10.5.4 disc I have kicking around, or even going back to Kalyway?

In Topic: 10.5.3 Available as an update!

So how would I go about telling which kernel I'm running? I used the Kalyway 10.5.2 disc, but it's been over a month and I can't for the life of me remember which I used. Plus I installed that NVInstaller thing that was supposed to fix vid card sleep . . .

Maybe I'll just wait until there's a 10.5.3 disc and reinstall. Need to do that soon anyway.

In Topic: Any extensions to make Firefox behave like Safari when downloading?

06 May 2008 - 08:02 PM

As much as I love Firefox and hate Safari on my Mac OS X, there is one feature of Safari I do love. I like how it automatically unzips a downloaded ZIP file, and deletes the source file, all in the background without you knowing, and I like how it automounts DMG files. Do extensions exist to make Firefox imitate this behavior?


Install Stuffit Expander. Open it up, go into preferences, and check the Delete after expanding box, and also make sure the Continue to expand and Mount disk images options are checked as well.

Then, just always use the Open with option in Firefox whenever you click a download link. There's also a check box in the download dialog that pops up, that tells Firefox to always do the same action every time you click to download one of that filetype.

There's also a function in Stuffit Expander to tell it to monitor a certain folder (like say, your default Firefox download folder), and automatically expand any archive files it finds there.
