  1. OSx86

    um, all i have to say about this one is this: i became curious when os x had bsd under the hood. when i got the chance, i installed osx86 on one of my notebooks. after years of making fun of mac nerds, i now might be considered a mac geek. when a project manager asked my opinion on a new batch of notebooks, i suggested he check out the macbooks as, they a fairly cheap considering the hardware they're pushing. bottom line: a PO was placed for a sizable number of macbooks (pros!) @ the corporate level. opinion: i think apple has gotten a fair shake from the deal almost forgot to mention, i'm getting one!
  2. i did a dumb thing today, i had 10.4.6 running very nicely on my fujitsu p7 (sse2) except it would freeze if there was no activity for a short period. i figured this was something i could sort in the settings and guessed that it was due to some suspend issue with the acpi driver. so, i duh yes DUH, tried to update using the built in updater from mac. well, now it won't boot properly (gets to the grey apple screen and reboots) and am wondering what i might be able to do to salvage the install. does mac have anything like windows where you can "repair" an install (essentially keep the data)? do i: 1) grab the real jas 10.4.8 update and try to get to a shell and install the pkg? if so, does anyone have any idea how to boot into safe/single mode if using grub boot loader? 2) re-install using my 10.4.6 disc and cross my fingers that the packages i've already installed and settings aren't overwritten? thanks a bunch! i LOVE osX
