  1. ...doesn't work. The software installs, but it's unable to find the slingbox during the initial setup. I then ran the setup from my iBook (running the most up-to-date 10.4) and it ran fine. Took the slingbox finder ID and manually put it into the mini (running 10.5), but it still can't connect to it. The iBook running 10.4 can connect to it fine. Not sure if there is a fix for this issue, but just wanted to put this out there in case other people are having the same issue.
  2. Need Oink invite

    Need an Oink invite to download the newest 10.5 build. I can offer an invite to demonoid in return, or a specific mac app (I don't have anything too in dept). Thanks
  3. So my mini was happily running 10.4.7 when just about 30 mins ago, the volume control on my apple keyboard stopped working. When I try and go into System Preferences to check the audio section, I get pinwheeled and go no further. When I create a second (temporary) account, everything works fine with that account (I can raise and lower sound from the keyboard and go into all of System Preferences) I have run "repair disk permissions" and a "verify disk", but they haven't helped (nor did they turn up anything). I also found in Activity Monitor then when I log in, I have one task in red. The task is: 494 loginwindow (Not Responding) SJobs 0.00 3 4.11 MB 669.85 MB PowerPC Hope this helps, and TIA viriiman

  5. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    NEver installed them. Is it too late to do it now, or can I do it after the update and have the update apply itself to it? I've been using Adium with no problems at all since the initial release of 10.5. Not sure about Skype, and not sure what problem you were having w/ Adium. There's some stuff that's DEFINATELY updated and improved (read my trials w/ Time Machine), but it could also be some security patches. Earlier in this thread, one person did post what this update actually updates. If you're worried about Steve knocking on your front door, just d/l the update from one of the hundreds of open wifi spots that exist. THen, you don't have to worry about a thing.
  6. So I have remote desktop installed on my mini (running 10.4.7) and one day remote desktop stops working. Through the process of surfing the web, I found that I should create another account and see if I could launch the program there (as in my account, all that would happen is the icon would bounce in the tray about 12 times and never launch). I was able to run the program from another account, so I knew that it was a problem with my account. I found the files I needed to repalce on the non-working account and did so. The problem now is that every time I launch RDC, it asks me to accept the EULA and if I want to register the software. On the other user account, it doesn't ask. I've tried recopying over the three files, and I'm made sure that I have read/write access and I'm the owner of all three. At this point I have no idea what could be wrong. Thanks virii

    Folder doesn't exist on my mac. I DID run the FULL install on the machine, but can't find any of the above folders (I searched in finder for both "Developer" and "ADC Reference Library" and got nothing).
  8. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    If you let me know where I can find that (if I can find it on my machine) I'll post it.
  9. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    Yet another Time Machine update... I have just had some success with Time Machine and restoring a file. For some unknown reason, Firefox decided that it wanted to loose all of my plugins, bookmarks, etc. I checked the profile folder to find that it was all the default files. I then realized that this was Steve's way of making me trust him :-p I fired up Time Machine and was able to go back in "time" to last night. I found my profile folder, and restored it (by default, Time Machine restored it to my "user" directory). After restoring the folder, I was able to reimport the files into my profile folder for Firefox, and things are back to normal. So after everything, it seems that Time Machine does function (at least in the critical folders. My Profile was stored in /(my name)/Library/Preferences/Firefox however when I looked in Documents, it showed nothing changed when it had) to some extent. Hopefully the next update (which we'll all be able to use) will add better stability, smoother graphics, and backing up everything.

    So Time Machine ran when it was supposed to, but I'm unable to see any changes to restore anything (all of the finder windows that open all show the same items in them whether I go foward or backward through "time". So it looks like Apple made the program a little more stable, but still not 100% functional.
  11. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    Well, "cleaning up" my hd and moving some things around went by quickly, so I reran Time Machine (thinking, foolishly, that it would take the same amount of time to run - it didn't) which finished in about 5 minutes. I deleted some files, moved some others around, and movevd others to a network share. In all cases of moved/deleted files, I emptied out the trash BEFORE I reran Time Machine. After rerunning Time Machine, I fired it back up to find that while I could move around like I stated in my previous post, it didn't appear that any of the changes I made were recorded by Time Machine. In short, all of the folders appeared exxactly the same (which is the way my mac is now). Once or twice while I was trying to verify this info, Time Machine "crashed". The program closed itself, but there was no notification that it crashed or any request to send any info to Apple (I didn't disable that if there even is a way). So, it seems that Time Machine is a little bit more stable for now, but still not fully function. I will let Time Machine run at a set time and see if it is able to do that yet. BTW, I realized that I never posted my systems specs to guage what "sluggish" is. I'm running a 1.25 GHz G4 mini w/ 1 GB ram and 13 GB free HD space. Hope this helps. virii
  12. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    Ok, after formatting my external HD and rerunning Time Machine, I'm happy to report that it's working (for me at least). Previously, when I ran Time Machine a finder window with the desktop would appear, but I was unable to navigate into any other folder or move fowards/backwards in "time" using the silver arrows. AFTER the update, Time Machine behaves much better. I'm able to go through different folders in the finder window that comes up, and I'm able to go foward/backward through "time". The animation of going foward/backward is choppy, and navigating through the finder window is a bit sluggish, but bearable. I'll try and create some new files, delete old files, rerun Time Machine, and try going foward/backward through "time" in the morning.
  13. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    Backing up my HD with Time Machine now... after it's done will check and see if it works "more better" then before.
  14. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    Here's the differences I can tell so far: Photobooth now launches (even though I have no camera connected to my system) and tells me it can't find the camera Still nothing for Front Row in Keyboard & Mouse. Tried using my Keyspan FrontRow remote, but the menu won't come up Testing out Time Machine to see if it will work for me (previously when launched it would display the contents of the desktop in a finder window and not let me change directories. If I did, Time Machine would exit) Feel free to add to this list if you find anything else that (after the update) does or doesn't work.
  15. Leopard Developer Preview Update

    So the update went off without a hitch, and I'm back in my install of 10.5. My System Profile now reports "System Version: Mac OS X 10.5 (9A241e)". Unfortunately, I didn't get to check what it was before the update. Haven't had a chance yet to see if anything has been improved, wanted to post my results with the update first. Again, the update went smoothly for me withOUT any signs of Apple trying to disable me. You results may vary. Will play with the OS and post if I can find anything that now works that didn't or anything that worked that now doesn't. viriiman
