  1. Leopard Server 10.5 - Unnoticed?

    Greetings, I love my Mac Server, I am currently using 10.4.9 and it does everything I need, acts as a VPN server, hosts my Apache webserver and MySQL dbs. It is the same as my headless BSD server except it has a gorgeous frontend. Torrentflux runs great on it to ;P Regards, {censored}-x
  2. Hey guys, I am not sure if this just popped out of the woodwork, but I believe this is a whole new section of the apple website dedicated to Leopard Server, I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere online yet. http://www.apple.com/server/macosx/leopard/ Regards, {censored}-x
  3. The Lunatics Are Running The Asylum!

    Greetings, My Source was from Revolution In The Valley: The Insanely Great Story of How The Mac Was Mady By Andy Hertzfeld (Member of the Macintosh Development Team, One of the Original Apple Staff). It is actually a really GREAT book, colorfull and includes some of Steve (Jobs and Woz's) original paperwork/proof designs of the interface etc. A must read if you have the money. Regards, {censored}-X
  4. The Lunatics Are Running The Asylum!

    Greetings, Actually the Command Key was put in place when menu layouts were first be created for the Macintosh, originally ALL the menu options had the Apple Logo in them, and Steve Jobs (Yes it was him) thought there were to many and took away emphasis on the corporate logo, he went to their sprite/bitmap designer and she had a new one created over night (I cannot remember her name).

  5. Greetings, The Airport Enabler flashes the firmware on the actual network adapters shipped with the Core 2 systems (The adapter itself can handle 802.11n) and allows the system to see it as a draft n card. If your card has n capabilities it might be a while, you could modify the kext and try to match vendev ids but chances are nill, the kext will most likely being using EFI firmware on the network card just as their video cards. I personally think this is a useless venture, you would be better off finding the flags used to report your card as an n card and modify the wireless kext currently used to report this feature, just then might your "extreme" card work.

  6. Take One, Leave One

    LG Half Empty or Half Full?
  7. And to answer the question in the previous thread, yes you have to install parallels tools, however, parallels tools for bootcamp was a seperate install and is not required, in fact must be removed before first boot off of bootcamp partition in the new Parallels build. Wow, I even confused myself there. Bottom line, if you installed Parallels tools for bootcamp with the last beta, boot off of bootcamp nativly, uninstall parallels tools for bootcamp, jump into osx, make parallels boot off of bootcamp, and then install parallels tools via the tools menu.

USB 2.0 support - “Plug and play” popular USB devices like external hard drives, printers, and scanners, and use them at full native speed. NOTE!

  9. No IP over Firewire in Vista

    Greetings, I just ran into this thread today mucking around on IM. I would have to agree on both sides, I personally enjoyed the IPoFW support, however, running a computer store myself I would have to say most people RARELY have access to a firewire plug and NOT an ethernet plug. Ethernet is included in every new system today, and almost every motherboard now includes gigabit ethernet. Yes firewire is faster, you can't run the cables that long however, and most computers in the whitebox/PC market do not include firewire by default unless you purchase a very nice motherboard. My views may be strayed as I have atleast 3 cat 6 drops in every room of my house ;P Regards, {censored}-x
  10. Greetings, This patch was created for .7, it does nothing harmful to your system and would not cause the slow down you are experiencing, all this patch does is fix a few broken symlink on the base install from the .7 Instal DVD that were not working properly, again all this patch does it relink those files. Regarding the -50 error, this is most commonly caused by browsing through the Network in finder and using the incorrect Workgroup name or not suppling proper windows authentication credentials. Regarding the sambafix .6 which was mentioned, it does the exact same thing as this patch. Regards, {censored}-x
  11. Greeting, I wonder if they got the mIRC bug fixed or not? I know in the last beta, if you switched between channels you would have to click in the userlast after each channel change for the userlist to populate. Regards, {censored}-x
  12. Greetings, I have not been able to reproduce any of your problems regarding the -50 error, I would repair permissions on your system, other then that -50 is most commonly an authentication error or permissionsm expecially connecting to an XP Professional or Server 2003 network share. Make sure you make in the popup you enter a proper username on the XP/03 box and that you chancge the Domain/Realm to the proper Workgroup/Domain in use. I have also not tested to see if this is an issue on .8 yet, if you patch the .7 then .8 should not be a problem. Regards, {censored}-x
  13. 10.4.5 to 10.4.6 Update

    Greetings Nemesish, No I was refering to JaS's updater, it is available on any of those torrent sites and will work, if not you can download the combo update from Apple, use pacifist to install everythign but the new kernel, frameworks and kextx. After install is complete, replace the isntalled bins with SemJazaa's decrypts. Regards, {censored}-x
  14. 10.4.5 to 10.4.6 Update

    Greetings, You should be able to download that update from Apple directly and patch it, however, I would just backup your video cards kext from your current install, install the the combo update to .7 and then restore your older working kext. Regards, {censored}-x
