  1. I am having a hard time finding any information about softmodding in OSX NOT in windows. I would certainly like to softmod my mac mini geforce into a quadro. Anyone know how or got some ideas? links?
  2. oops my mistake about the graphics I shall got for the P35, and use either the 7300GTor the 8600GT, whichever of the two I get to work best. Thanks guys
  3. Gigabyte EP35-DS4 (use onboard graphics) http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=770819 or Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L (use 8600GT 256MB PCIe, or 7300GT 256MB) http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductId=866078 Planning to use EFI method. Am I right in saying my sata port setup shuold be as follows for 10.5.2: SATA 1 = DVD DRIVE SATA 2 = HD SATA 3 = SATA 4 =
  4. Hi, as the topic title says, I am looking for a UK based vendor of OEM/spares/parts. Why? Going to build a mac pro bit by bit! I have read about people in the US doing it. I have seen the logic boards for about £3-400 which is ok for a dual xeon board. Next step I guess is case+PSU, and the RAM cards.
  5. 24" imac up on ebay

    My baby is on ebay! I bought it new in april, but my work stakes me more into linux, so I am getting an HP workstation with Red Hat instead :S It's not a bad price considering the other ones listed and the extra software and hardware that I have added both at purchase and afterwards Cheers HERE IT IS! If you want to settle this with me personally email me: richardbensley @ gmail . com
  6. dvd player reinstall

    Make it easy on yourself and just use VLC player.
  7. Need a good unrar program

    as Ahmad said, The Unarchiver is very good!
  8. Photoshop CS3

    By Patch do you mean crack? So you can use it illegally? That kind of thing is unmutual! Do you know what happens to people who are unmutual?
  9. CAD software

    Autocad, Inventor, and Turbocad...FOR THE LOOSE! Studiotools, Solidworks, and Catia, FOR THE ULTIMATE MEGA WIN! Especially studiotools/aliasstudio for modelling, you can now stick a displacement map onto a NURBS surface, and convert the displaced object to a mesh, who doesn't love insanely high poly counts?
  10. What plain Unix distros are there?

    There is a difference between a Unix Variant, and a Unix Like OS. Linux is "Unix Like" it is not based on any part of the old Unix systems. HP-UX, AIX, Solaris, OSX/Darwin, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, IRIX, etc are "Unix Variants". Opendarwin (now out of development) is what you might describe of as "plain". And NetBSD is compatible with just about ANY hardware configuration (Hence the motto "Of course it runs NetBSD"). Linux wise, a debian netinst will pretty much let you get on with it on, after a tiny install, and with a huge apt-get repository at your fingertips. TBH OSX has a lovely unix terminal sitting in there, and it's worth learning it as it is so accessible. However most public documentation covers linux aspects nowadays. Vendor wise: Unix: -HP -IBM -Solaris -Apple Linux: -Dell -HP -IBM (I am sure there are more) NOTE: OSX/DARWIN/NEXTSTEP, ARE NOT I REPEAT NOOOOT FREEBSD!!! They are built on BSD4.3 and a mach3 microkernel.
  11. Razer. Nicely built, VERY fast, and even more responsive.
  12. Mac OS X gui + linux kernel?

    4DWM > every other WM
  13. Where to find an installable OS/2?

    I have OS/2 I think it is version 2.11, floppy disk, boxed, manual good conditino, used once. Yours if you want it.
