  1. A little backstory. I recently acquired the following iMac (from my school. They were just going to toss it. Seems to be in amazing shape): iMac G3 700Mhz 256MB RAM 60GB HD Airport card installed I also got Mac OS X Server 1.2 from a friend & attempted to install it. Came across some issues/questions & was wondering if anyone had any luck doing something similar: 1) Booted from the Mac OS 9.2.1 CD 2) Partitioned the HD in half (MacOS & Rhapsody drives) 3) Installed 9.2.1 on the MacOS drive 4) Installed the 9.2.2 update on the MacOS drive 5) Rebooted using the MacOS drive & finished the setup & configuration process 6) Inserted the Mac OS X Server 1.2v3 (or either 1.2, not sure which one it is) disc. 7) Opened up the disc & located the "System Disk Utilities" folder 8) Copied the "System Disk Extension" to the Extensions folder & "System Disk" to the Applications folder. 9) Opened System Disk (to make sure that the install cd was ok) & saw this: 10) Opened "Startup Disk" to make sure & saw this: 11) With everything looking ok (and all drives present and accounted for), I opened "Mac OS X Server 1.2" disc & clicked on "Install Mac OS X Server" 12) I enabled "Install on unsupported configurations" 13) I followed the on-screen instructions, selected the "Rhapsody" drive & then selected doing a custom installation. 14) It then said something along the lines of "Configuring your computer to start up from the Mac OS X CD" & then restarted 15) The computer restarted & I heard the the cd starting to spin. I just saw the flashing question mark/face folder icon & then it booted into 9.2.2 16) Followed the same tests as before & saw these this time The Rhapsody partition is no longer showing up. The Install Disc still looks ok though. When I got to the installation process & was selecting the Rhapsody disk, it said something like "Previous Selected Install Partition". It then gave the same preparation message as before and it now said "To continue installation, click restart". I hit restart & then it show the flashing folder icon again & then booted into 9.2.2. 18) I rebooted the computer, while holding down the alt key & only saw this icon (I recreated it. No possible way to take a screenshot of that screen) I clicked it & Mac OS 9.2.2 booted. Throughout the entire process, I have not removed the Mac OS X Server Install Disc. Since the "Rhapsody" partition won't mount anymore, I booted into FireWire Disk mode & connected my iMac to my MacBook Pro & opened Disk Utility. It shows the partition as this: I then erased the Rhapsody partition & set the format for Mac OS X Extended. That's where I stand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I may or may not have seen it on what.cd
  3. Hate to revive a REALLY old topic BUT, I've finally got the server set up. I've got a dedicated machine for it now as well (an iMac G3 700 Mhz) and a TON more stuff (about 8 gigs as of now) available than I had before. Sorry for the long delay, real life/ college/ having a girlfriend kinda took up my time for a bit. Just finishing organizing the files and will post another update Monday the latest with login/ IP info
  4. I've got 2 final showstopping bugs left in my app. I've got a RootViewController button leading to an "About" window. A cancel button for my search bar & the search button on my app. These bugs involve: *When no search query is entered, Search & Cancel buttons lock up the app when pressed *When a search query is entered into the search field, the Cancel & About buttons start the search I've set breakpoints & I think I've located the source of the problem but, I'm not sure how to fix the issue. Trying to get this submitted to Apple by 3pm EST I've got a breakpoint set at [app openURL:url] below (RootViewController.m) - (void)searchBarTextDidEndEditing:(UISearchBar *)mySearchBar { //•• start your search! UIApplication *app = [UIApplication sharedApplication]; NSString *nameString = self.mySearchBar.text; NSString *urlString = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"Site that I am searching", nameString]; NSString *fixedURL = [urlString stringByAddingPercentEscapesUsingEncoding:NSUTF8StringEncoding]; // or any other encoding NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:fixedURL]; [app openURL:url]; } When the About button is pressed (with a search query entered), the app stops debguggin at "return self;" - AboutController.m - (id)init { if (self = [super init]) { // Initialize your view controller. self.title = @"About"; } return self; } I think I narrowed the problem down to this section in my "RootViewController.m" file - (id)init { if (self = [super init]) { // Initialize your view controller. self.title = @"My Awesome App"; UIBarButtonItem* aboutButton = [[UIBarButtonItem alloc] initWithTitle:@"About" style:UIBarButtonItemStyleBordered target:self action:@selector(tellParentToPush)]; self.navigationItem.rightBarButtonItem = aboutButton; [aboutButton release]; } return self; } I'm just at a loss on how to fix these last 2 bugs. Any suggestions on how to tackle this problem would be greatly appreciated
  5. I've got two problem left with my app that I can't figure out. Looked through all of the documentation & can't seem to find the answer. 1) Can't search more than 1 word queries. Here's the code that I have for searching a site - (void)searchBarTextDidEndEditing:(UISearchBar *)mySearchBar { //•• start your search! UIApplication *app = [UIApplication sharedApplication]; NSString *nameString = self.mySearchBar.text; NSString *urlString = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"Site that I am searching", nameString]; NSURL *url = [NSURL URLWithString:urlString]; [app openURL:url]; } When I emailed Apple's Dev Tech Support, they said I looked all through any documentation relating to NSURL & NSString & couldn't find anything related to that. 2) And when I do have a valid query entered, any other buttons on the app, like a button to the "About" page, initializes the search process. Apple Dev Tech Support suggested this How exactly would I do that? Any help related to either problem would be greatly appreciated
  6. Nope, I'm not crazy Open Source - Internet & Web - Bonjour Click for the latest stable release (mDNSResponder-107.6.tar.gz) but, http://opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/t...er-108.6.tar.gz is the latest version (dated from july of '07). Inside is a folder called "mDNSMacOS9" On the Apple Mailing Lists for Bonjour, it was confirmed(back in 2004) that this folder contains the sourcecode for The slight problem is that it appears that the source code was coded using CodeWarriors. The reason that I bring this up is I have an old iMac DV 400 Mhz running OS 9 & probably am going to pick up an airport card from Macsales.com. But, alas, I lack the knowledge (or CodeWeavers itself for that matter) to compile this extension for OS 9. Might anyone have any experience compiling things in CodeWarriors and/or porting the code to xCode ? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    So, time for a Snow Leopard section, right?

    Something I've been working on

    That might need to wait until 1.1.3 & when the official SDK is released. I was thinking a similar way like how you reorder the home page icons: by pressing on one until it wiggles, kinda like a drag & drop

    Something I've been working on

    http://ioffice.googlecode.com I've got some Wiki pages up with some results of some filetype tests that I did. Trying to see which of the office formats can be opened normally & viewed

    Something I've been working on

    http://code.google.com/p/ioffice/ ****WARNING**** It's just an idea at this point. No actual code is there. Just some mock up & some filetype tests I did. If people are interested in joining the project, just send me a message there. ****AGAIN, WARNING**** No code exists on the site yet. It is just an idea. Please do not assume that it is an actual app yet
  11. Edit: I'm sorry, It's just a mockup. I don't have much coding experience & no iPhone coding experience. I didn't mean to get people's hopes up So, I got this idea in the middle of my Statistics class today. A slimmed-down version of Microsoft Office (just Word, Excel & PowerPoint) for the iPhone/ iPod Touch. The pictures speak for themselves in terms of what features I thought fit well with the iPhone/ iTouch GUI & setup. The pictures were easy to make, the video was a bit hard to pull off (required replacing Default.png & Icon.png from an app & using my built-in iSight to record it, hence the weirdness of it). But, overall, I think it came out pretty good.

    Mac OS X DP 2

    A little something to tide you guys over. I found this in Finder.app from DP 2. I'm gonna shoot for having the server up by tonight/tomorrow. I'm home & done with finals now so, I'll have more time to focus on that. Desktop_Picture.tiff
