  1. OSX see Linux partition?

    What filesystem is your linux partition in? You can just search the forums for [filesystem name] or google with terms:"Mac OS X" [filesystem name] If it's for ext3, you can try macfuse (http://code.google.com/p/macfuse/ ), ext2 file system (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/18619 ), or whatever else google (or your preferred search engine) provides Good luck. Forum search for ext3 returns: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...227&hl=ext3, http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thr...forum_id=218925, ... If you do get it working, please share how you got it to work with everyone
  2. Bill Gates' letter to hobbyists

    I'm quite sure that's how it was called at first. Of course i can't find anything backing that up right now ( wikipedia), but if i'll do i'll let you know.
  3. Thx, tho I didn't try using a proxy Instead i used this site:http://www.zend2.com , which worked well enough without the need to go about messing with programs and suchlike. So for anyone who's interested, the zend2 works nicely. It's soo tempting... I need a new phone, and I could replace my current 4GB Creative Zen with it in one go... Tho I use linux a lot, which can be slightly problematic.
  4. Thx for the up Numberzz Anyone know how to circumvent the Geo-ip O2 site? When i try to surf to http://shop.o2.co.uk/ i get: I have a few friends in the UK, so I could get one through them; I'd just like to see the site (or sight?)
  5. Computers you have

    In his imaginary mac pro I wonder why you'd be satisfied with 2x 3.2GHZ Quad Xeons and not 4x or 8x in a rig like that
  6. Computers you have

    Pointless thread but oh well Main rig: Intel C2D E8200 @ 3.6GHz (450*8) + Zalman CNPS9700|| Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 || 2x2GB GSkill DDR2 PC8000 || MSI GeForce 8800GT 512MB DDR OC || Samsung 500GB SATAII drive || Samsung SATA DVD-RW || Antec Sonata II + Corsair HX520W PSU || Samsung 204B 1600x1200 native|| Vista Ultimate x64/Kubuntu 7.10 Second rig: Pentium 4 3.0GHz @ 3.45GHz + Arctic Cooling Freezer Pro 7 || (crappy) Abit SG-80 || 1x1GB + 1x512MB RAM || PNY GeForce 6600 256MB DDR || Seagate 200GB ATA + Maxtor 250GB SATA || No-name case + CoolerMaster eXtremePower 430W || 17" CRT || WinXP Professional/Kubuntu 7.10
  7. I hope you know this is normal: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte#Consumer_confusion (basically: 750GB = 698 Gibibytes, which is what most operating systems work with). I don't know about the other drives tho This is a known problem. A possible fix can be found in this post (basically you limit your memory to 3456MB). It's not a solution tho. Here's another thread discussing this issue: click me. If I find a post describing an actual solution, I'll be sure to let you know. All the best, 3phemeral
  8. You could also try the instructions I wrote here, which has a (working) link to the kexts. This should make your sound work properly, including mic in.If you need any additional help/if things are unclear, give me a shout All the best, 3phemeral
  9. Need install to see partition!

    I had this problem on my old rig, which has an SiS-based chipset. I first installed OSX on a partition ending before the first 128GB. Once this was done, I `installed' a kext which allowed me to access it in its entirety. Maybe you'll have to do something similar. From the Biostar website I found out your motherboard has a nForce630a(MCP68S) chipset. I'd search the forums for this, and see what gives... Oh, and I recommend you install OSX on a primary partition; I've had problems before (unable to boot OSX) when I installed it on a secondary (logical) partition. Best of luck, 3phemeral
  10. Dual Booting GRUB Error

    Not necessarily so; I've done lots of partition moves, resizings, etc... without losing any data. But: Is NEVER a bad idea Be sure to back up the essentials Things can always go wrong, not just messing around with partitions. This also leads me to the question - is your hardware OSX compatible? Have you ever had it boot? If it's a no go, there's not much point in spending more time and effort trying to get it to work.. I, for instance, have been unable to load Leopard on my old rig, where Tiger ran near flawless. I'd recommend you try to find a piece of software for Windows, called PowerQuest PartitionMagic, Version 8.0. This is a very easy program which allows moving/deleting/resizing of partitions, and suchlike. Once you have this, I can help you further to move/delete/resize partitions in order to be able to install OSX on a primary partition (on say, the drive which you have Ubuntu installed on). Send me a pm if you want/need further help, but i don't check this site every day and i'm very busy these days. All the best, 3phemeral
  11. Dual Booting GRUB Error

    I think I recall reading somewhere that it's better if OS X is installed on a primary partition in order to avoid booting problems, yet on yours it's on a logical partition (if i'm not mistaken). If none of the suggestions so far help, I'd try reinstalling it on a primary partition (on either your first or second drive - shouldn't matter). I've also never needed any chain0 methods when using Grub, which I find terribly useful/convenient. Simply adding a Grub entry has worked for me so far, tho the entries have differed, not booting when I omitted a certain line, etc... My GRUB entries, one with all OSes on one drive are: title Mac OS X root (hd0,2) <-- note: 3rd partition [on the only drive] savedefault <-- note: not needed on my old rig. makeactive chainloader +1 The entry in my old rig, which has 2 disks: ubuntu + grub on one, OS X on the other: title Mac OS X root (hd1,1) <-- note: 2nd partition on the second drive makeactive chainloader --force +1 I hope one of these, or a variation thereof works for you... All the best, 3phemeral
  12. Windows XP Essential

    BlueAvenue's previous reply contains a hint
  13. Ayuda por favor...

    Me parece que nadie ha intentado instalar Leopard en este tipo de maquina. En el HCL hay alguien que instalo 10.4.8: http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.ph...#Presario_V4000. Podrias intentar instalar Mac OS X 10.4.8 [JaS AMD-Intel-SSE2-SSE3 with PPF1 & PPF2]. Encontraras este en la bahía de los piratas. Aqui hay dos enlaces mas a mensajes de personas quienes lograron instalar 10.4.x en su v4000. Podrias mandarles un mensaje para preguntarles que version utilizaron: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...10&hl=v4000 http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...04&hl=v4000 Que te vaya bien, 3phemeral
  14. Demonoid Tracker Back Up

    Great news, this is! A torrent on my server just downloaded about 10% more tonight (96.7% now! nearly there ) i'd been trying to get for a while. Hope to see demonoid up and running again. Not necessarily the fastest, but had a gynormous amount of torrents, many of which were difficult/impossible to find elsewhere. offtopic: i love your signature Grav3Mind, even tho i don't really game...
  15. Budget computer $300 build

    I'm sure you won't regret it. But the Nine Hundred doesn't come with a PSU, or am I mistaken? What PSU did you get?
