OSx newbie need help

28 August 2012 - 12:55 AM

Hi guys.
I've install Lion and all looks OK.
The problem that puzzle me is that when ever I go to "Get Info" about any file or folder to see permissions there are users: system; wheel; everyone; but not my user name. I do get the system and everyone but what is user wheel I've no clue. On some folders and files I'm able to add my user name to some I'm not. What's wrong here??
Second question : is there any program that'd help me to clean
install kexts that are not needed, I did try install couple for video, network e.t.c that did not work before I find working ones.

Thanks for any help and info.

This is my system:

MB= ASUS P5QL Pro;BiOs AMI (08/26/08)

CPU= Pentium®Dual Core E5200@2,5Ghz
Mem= 4Gb (2x 1Gb DDR2-533 SDRAM + 2Gb DDR2-667)

Graphics= MSI nVidia GeForce 9400GT (1024Mb)
Audio= RealTek ALC888/S/T @Intel 82801JB ICH10-HD controller

Network= Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E controller

HD= Seagate ST3500413AS(used by Win 7 and OSx 10.7.4) Seagate ST3160815AS(used by WinXP pro)

Seagate ST3500630NS(empty)

boot repair needed

25 December 2011 - 06:43 PM

Hi everybody and Merry Christmas to all.

Had to rebuild my test system due to HD crash and now there is a problem.

I use to have 2HD; 1 with Windows7 and 1 with two partitions (OSx Leopard and SnowLeopard) and used EasyBCD 2.0 boot loader.
@ boot I had option to start Win7 or OSx, after OSx selection and F8 Chameleon give Leopard,Winows and SnowLeo OS to choose from.

Now since HD crash I reformated first partition on the second (Leopard, did not pay with it anymore) and reinstall Win7 and EasyBCD (add OSx option) after reboot all is the same as before with exception that now I have only Win and SnowLeo as an option to choose.
Problem is that when I select SnowLeo to boot, logo of Chameleon on black screen is all that is happening, no boot of OSx.

My guess is that by formating the first partition I've screwed the Chameleon loader.

Can anyone help to solve this problem or do I've to reinstall SnowLeopard also? :help:
Thanks for any info.

CPU and Bluetooth

30 August 2011 - 05:28 PM

The CPU it's incorrectly shown as 2.5GHz Intel Core 2 Solo and in fact it is Pentium® Dual Core 2.5MHz.
Is there any way to correct this?
Other problem that started today is that my RocketFish mouse and keyboard combo loose conection after some time in the system. I have not install any specific kext for it as both worked since install, so I've tried update from Apple site, but when I install it, it said that it is not needed.
Any ideas how to solve this? :unsure:
