  1. enhanced gptsync tool

    Just tried this. Attempting Linux install now.
  2. iPhone hacked to run Android

    Sweet! Now I can have an iPhone, AND I can run all of the crappy Android versions of my favorite apps!
  3. Triple Booting Live USB?

    The other two should be small though. I think you can do a Ubuntu minimal install and use very little space.
  4. 10.6.4 Update Ok?

    There's another thread about this in the new releases section. It seems to work okay; a lot of people had to reinstall SleepEnabler.kext and remove/disable AppleHDA.kext, I think.
  5. Weird Network happenings

    Have you looked into installing new kexts for your wireless card? Maybe it was supported in Leopard but not SL?
  6. I installed OS X on my new build a few weeks ago, and decided later that I wanted to try to set up a multiboot. I tried installing Arch Linux, but cfdisk wouldn't work on my harddrive, so I used a Sidux Live CD to use gparted to add ext4 and fat32 partitions for Linux and Windows. I tried again to do a net install with Arch, and everything went smoothly until installing Grub. I tried putting it onto the same partition as /, but it wouldn't work, so I tried installing it to the MBR, planning on later chainloading, which still didn't work. I figured I would go do some more reading, but after getting back into OS X, I couldn't get on the internet. System Preferences says that my ethernet cable is either not hooked up, or the device at the other end is not responding. I tried using my Macbook, and the ethernet is definitely working. I tried booting into Sidux, and still couldn't get on the internet (I could before), so I don't think it's a drivers problem. I'm using a GA-X58A-UD3R rev 2.0, by the way. The light next to my ethernet port is still turning on, so it doesn't seem like a hardware issue. So what is going on here? How is this possible? Any help with the multiboot issues would be appreciated too, but for now, priority is getting internet up. Let me know if any other info would be helpful. EDIT: Do you think that reinstalling would fix it? I'm tempted to rewrite the partition table anyways (it's currently GUID, which I think causes problems with multiboot setups). EDIT: Seems to have fixed itself. Mysterious.
  7. 10.6.4 Update Ok?

    I would love to hear from anybody who has done the update, too. I just got all set up around a week ago, and I would hate to lose my hard work.
