  1. Gimpshop

    Somehow I botched the xinitrc and don't know how to get back... all text comes up as boxes NEW USER> REINSTALL.. Gimpshop is nice. really powerful.
  2. I'm using this board currently. It's everything I wanted, it's a great way to go. Only 1 PATA connector works. USB seems stuck at usb 1. http://www.buy.com/prod/adaptec-3-port-usb...tml?dcaid=17379 Gives you USB 2 and firewire. I have a stock heatsink and a crappy thermal interface but the e6600 is @ 2.9Ghz. When I get a better lapped heatsink I expect to do MUCH better.
  3. Thank you Tirtho... This is the card I have and it is working perfectly well with single monitor. Is there a way to make what you have done work with my card too? This system profiler clip is taken when there is 2 VGA monitors attatched. Thanks again.

    Anyone using this? at least it's UB.
  5. OS X stability above 3.6 GHz on Conroe

    Try booting up a winxp drive with orthos prime... How long will it run @ 3.8 then?
  6. I don't know if your sarcastic or not very experienced in life, but before Apple engineered the switch to Intel Macs, they made PPC macs and before that 68k Macs. Show me the off the shelf parts for those please? Frank Gehry doesn't create architecture because he uses the same concrete and glass suppliers?
  7. Partitions are they final?

    Thank you! I will try to find a spare drive to see if I can make this work. Do you dual boot? I think that's part of the monkey wrench that I encountered trying to change the free space on the drive.

  9. 945 vs 965 vs 975

    I'm only @ 2.7G but I can crank it up to 3180 however it will crash sooner with Orthos prime, but never with single prime . This CPU needs a lot of voltage to get going faster it seems. I like a quiet computer. The point of this post is that the CPU and the noise I'm willing to live with stops me from a huge OC, not this inexpensive 945 system, CPU and board together $325. I think it's worth the extra $ for the cache and the multiplier. A simple 300mhz FSB keeps all the timings relaxed and so far rock solid.
  10. Cannot sync with Palm Desktop

    http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/12968 Hey this works... LOL silly me for thinking that palm would have a current version for DOWNLOAD!!!!
  11. Cannot sync with Palm Desktop

    I have the same problem with palm desktop!
  12. Another Perfectly Working OSX Desktop

    945 is plenty fast, and if you want a decently quiet machine overclocking can only do so much for your speed. I could be running at 3.2G but not completely stable unless I up the airflow about 5x. 2.7G is not too bad for the next year. e6600 p5ld2.
  13. it seems that if I change the partitioning I hose my 10.4.8 install. However I have 320G of a 400G drive as free space. What can I do? Clone my working install to another drive? By hose I mean "waiting for boot device"... One can type in hd(0,a)mach_kernel rd=disk0s2 and finally boot but things are still wonky.
  14. OS X / Windows File Sharing

    Data point, mine just works. no patches. XP shared folders allow authetication and them I'm in. beta 8 semthex, JAS 10.4.8.sse3, core 2 duo.
  15. ACPI problem

    In my P5ld2 bios ACPI should be on auto however if you enable acpi 2.0 it will crash with that error.
