If there is no fix for this is there away to disable the sleep option

Sleep is controlled in the Energy Saver preference pane, you can disable it

Re: adding memory to iMac G4

Hello Tina,

Does the USB2.0 version use DDR memory, instead of SD-RAM of the USB
1.1 version? If so, then the topic starter has more options indeed.

I'm not sure how pricey a 1GB DDR SO-DIMM is going to be..


Greetings,

Eelco.


Thanks for the question, looking closer at the G4 iMacs I see that it isn't just 
the USB 2 models that have an actual 2GB limit. According to Mactracker:


1. The original G4 iMac, was produced Jan 02 - Feb 03. It uses (1) PC133 144 pin 
SO-DIMM and (1) PC133 168 pin SDRAM for a maximum of 1GB RAM total.


2. Was produced Feb 03 - Sep 03. The 15 800MHz model uses the same RAM as V1 
above, with the same 1GB limit.


3. Was also produced Feb 03 - Sep 03. The 17 1GHz model, uses (1) PC2100 200 pin 
SO-DIMM and (1) PC-2100 184 pin SDRAM. Apple lists the memory limit at 1GB but the 
actual limit is 2GB.


4. The USB 2 model was produced Sep 03 (Nov 03 for the 20 model) - Jul 04. It 
uses (1) PC2700 200 pin SO-DIMM and (1) PC-2700 184 pin SDRAM.


In case anyone is wondering why Apple listed some G4 iMacs at 1GB maximum but in 
reality 2GB is the maximum I think originally each type of RAM was only available 
up to 512MB per stick for the 1GB limit, but in time higher density 1GB sticks 
became available and Apple didn't change their specs, maybe to avoid support 
liability. Then again I could be completely wrong. ;-)


In all of the above the SO-DIMM is the user (easily) accessible memory and the 
SDRAM is the factory (know how to replace thermal paste) memory. These iMacs do 
not support DDR, and I believe that the memory sticks do not have to be of the 
same capacity.

Assuming that the speaker is installed in a manner similar to a PM G5 or MP (I've

soldering the speaker wires instead.


I'm not advocating this method, just suggesting an alternative for you to

and it and Disk Warrior do
different things. DW fixes corrupted volume directories. That's all it does,
but it does that one thing very well.


I suggested both because the cause is unknown. DW is probably more likely to fix 
it, but running fsck from Open Firmware instead of the boot drive, and possibly 
permissions repair, might be helpful.

Applejack doesn't run fsck from Open Firmware, but from single-user mode, and
the results of running fsck and Disk Utility are indistinguishable, because
what DU is doing is running fsck under the GUI.


Yes, I got mixed up again. Sometimes my brain can't distinguish OF from SU. But is 
it not better to run fsck from SU or a different drive/partition/disc? Like 
testing RAM in SU rather than the boot volume?



Permissions repair will do nothing whatsoever for this issue, since that
applies to executable files only. Only things listed in /Library/Reciepts will
ever figure into Permissions repair. (and not all of those...PR only ever looks
at Apple-supplied files.)


I'm generally hesitant to recommend PR but it is possible some important file 
somewhere has incorrect permissions and is gumming up the works. Can't hurt 
anyway, better to try every non-destructive possibility before taking more drastic 
measures.

Do you mean erasing the whole drive, or just the user's data?
In other words: do you want an empty drive, or a working Mac (booting and
with apps) but without any of your data left?


Giving that the subject line is: How do I remove an *OS* from a computer, I think 
it's pretty plain. The earlier answer about booting from an install disc, 
launching Disk Utility, clicking on the desired drive, then erase, and then going 
into Security Options... and choosing how many times you want it overwritten, is 
the answer you're looking for.

desktop as well as the finder bar up top all disappear for a second and then

I can see the drive in Disk Utility and System Profiler. Disk Utility says it is
fine when I repair it.

I've restarted, shutdown, disconnected and turned on and off the FW drive. 
Started
with the drive on and connected. Started up in Safe mode. Reset PRAM. Nothing.
Repaired permissions on the Mac HD, deleted com.apple.finder.plist and still 
nothing.

The machine is a 2010 Intel Core 2 Duo Mac Mini running SL 10.6.8 8GB RAM. It 
also
afects my 17  1.5Ghz AL G4 Powerbook running Tiger 10.4.11 with 2 GB RAM. On 
that
machine it actually makes the Finder Icon and title bar blink infinitely without
letting me do anything except disconnect the drive after which all is well.

The drive is a 500GB  Seagate 7200 rpm OWC Mercury On The Go 2.5 ATA in a
FW800/USB2 enclosure connected via FW800. There are 3 180GB partitions. The 
drive
is 2 years old. I'll be contacting OWC in the morning.

The bigger concern probably isn't who you browser is contacting but instead rogue

Google is your friend, when I see a process that I haven't seen before, I look it

That's not to say that Safari can't be made to do bad things, but it's not very

If you want a ready to go solution I recommend OWC's external drive enclosures.

Personally I prefer to put my own together using enclosures that have Oxford 
firewire chips  a drive of my choosing. I believe this method is also a little 
bit cheaper.

I should have mentioned that Western Digital's enterprise drives are warranted for 
5 years and have a good reputation. They cost a bit more, but worth it in my mind.


Also it is a good idea to maintain an incremental backup, a la Time Machine, for 
retrieving data that has been lost or corrupted; and a bootable backup with Carbon 
Copy Cloner or Super Duper! so you can get back up and running quickly in the 
event of a catastrophic failure.

I suspect you're misinterpreting streamed video? YouTube and many other video
sites are in the process of conversion away from Flash and to HTML5. During this
conversion, most video is available in both formats, and the specific format
streamed to your computer is determined by the site dependent upon your browser.
It's likely you're getting an HTML5 stream and thinking it's a Flash stream.


All I'm saying is that the YouTube page I first loaded in OmniWeb said that I 
needed to install Flash 10 or higher, when I loaded the page in Chromium it just 
played. FWIW

Can't load youtube with certain browsers, others ok

2011-11-12 Thread Tina K.


This is on my Mac Pro, below. I had been using Chromium for Flash sites so that 
I wouldn't have to
install the Flash Player plug-in, but recently, about the time v14 came out, it has stopped 
loading the  youtube page. The youtube logo comes up on the tab, but that's it - no 
parts of the page load that I can  see.

So I installed the Flash Player plug-in to go back to how I used to view Flash 
content. SeaMonkey,
OmniWeb, and iCab will load youtube but Camino, Chromium, and Opera will not.

Does anyone see a common thread here that I am missing?


I should add that Safari works as well.


I tested against a new, untouched account and had the same issue, as did my backup 
disk. Reinstalling SL fixed the issue, which is strange because it seems to have 
left everything intact - BOINC, LittleSnitch, etc... But it is good to know that a 
reinstall of SL is painless, unlike earlier versions of OS X.

It COULD be that Youtube is changing things on the back end, based on your 
browser's ID string. Turn on Safari's Developer menu and change your User Agent 
string and see what happens.


I tried Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Camino User Agent strings in Safari and they 
all loaded youtube.com fine.



A larger point is: you have browsers that work, why are you worrying over the 
ones that won't?


Simply because I liked not having Flash in all of my browsers, that was the only 
reason I started using Chrome in the first place. Any page with Flash that I want 
to see I drag the url to ShoveBox for later viewing and I avoid Flash issues with 
my primary browser. I am familiar with ClickToFlash but it just seemed better to 
keep Flash in just the one browser.

Can't load youtube with certain browsers, others ok

2011-11-09 Thread Tina K.


This is on my Mac Pro, below. I had been using Chromium for Flash sites so that 
I wouldn't have to install the Flash Player plug-in, but recently, about the 
time v14 came out, it has stopped loading the youtube page. The youtube logo 
comes up on the tab, but that's it - no parts of the page load that I can see.

So I installed the Flash Player plug-in to go back to how I used to view Flash 
content. SeaMonkey, OmniWeb, and iCab will load youtube but Camino, Chromium, 
and Opera will not.

Does anyone see a common thread here that I am missing?


I should add that Safari works as well.

Re: Which G5 or older Mac

Some day soon, I'd like to upgrade to a faster cpu Mac, from my current 10.5.8

I run many older apps such as Photoshop CS, InDesign CS, Adobe Golive CS,
Sibelius 3 and Ableton's Live 6 plus many other PPC based applications, and have
hesitated from upgrading because I thought I would need all new software for the
Intel-based-ness of the newer, faster Macs.

Am I wrong? Which Macs can I get, and still run all my software that I currently
run on my PPC G4s under Leopard 10.5.8?


An Intel Mac with Leopard or (preferably) Snow Leopard can handle that. If you 
want to go G5 my choice would be the 2.3GHz dual core. It was the final generation 
of the G5 Power Macs and the fastest air cooled model so there's no worrying about 
coolant leaks. It would help if you lived in a cool climate though, it really 
pumps out the heat and runs up the utility bill. My Mac Pro (below) use about half 
the electricity that my 2.0GHz G5 DP did and is significantly faster running 
multi-CPU process's.

Re: Mapping Out Bad Sectors

2011-10-04 Thread Tina K.

On 2011/10/04 09:34, John Martz so eloquently wrote:

My understanding is it works this way. If the drive attempts to read a
sector and the read fails, the sector is marked as pending. It is
not remapped under the rational that the read may succeed in the
future. So if you see a non-zero value for pending sectors in the
drive's SMART data, this is what has happened.

If you write to a sector and the write fails THEN the sector is
remapped (if possible). This is tallied in the Reallocated Sectors
Count, I think. The drives firmware keeps track of the remapping and
reads/writes to that sector redirected from that point on to the
remapped sector.

The gist is that if you have bad sectors and you want to force the
drive to remap them you have to write to those sectors. One way to do
this is to perform an erase of the drive i.e. write zeros (or
whatever) to every sector on the drive.

A format in and of itself may do nothing. It all depends on what
sectors on the drive the format writes to. FWIW, I'm not sure what the
phrase low level format means with any drive sold this century. For
quite some time the format of a hard drive is fixed once it leaves the
factory and this can't be tinkered with other than remapping bad
sectors via the firmware.

And, yes, if you have a large number of either pending or reallocated
sectors on a drive, it is a cause for concern about the health of the
drive. Especially if the number keeps going up.


FWIW, I looked this up on Micromat's website and it said that their 
write zeros function does not map out bad sectors. They suggested using 
Disk Utility.app, though there may be other 3rd party apps that can do 
it too.


My main concern is if I do a low level reformat with all zeros, and then 
at a later date reinitialize the drive, would it then lose it's updated 
map and revert to the factory's map?

Clone!!!

Just... be sure your first boot on the cloned volume is into Safe Mode.
That will ensure that the kernel and system caches are rebuilt fully.


Cloning works very well as long as you haven't used something like 
Monolingual to remove unneeded architectures. If you have than you'll 
need to do it the hard way.


I have cloned from G4 to G5, and Powerbook to iMac with no apparent 
problems.



But I wonder if moving an OSX from a very different Mac could cause
any trouble. Is there any reason for installing ex-novo, against
simple cloning?


If the newer machine can run that OS then there should be no problem.

I've run into a few odd gitches doing it...  eg:  I did a clean install
into a PowerBook G4 then cloned to a PowerMac G3 and later a PM G4.  It
works fine.  But now and then it thinks it has bluetooth. heh.  I need
to go kill off that plist.


Another question: if I choose to installing ex-novo, will Migration
Assistant be able to transfer all the extra bits and pieces?
Or will there be something missing?


I've never managed to get Migration Assistant to get -everything- on
Panther, Tiger, or Leopard.  It's crashy and there's always something
missing.  The vers from SL and Lion seem to be better - and more stable.

I've not had good luck with Migration Assistant in the past either,

  On any processor, IBM or otherwise it is recommended to reapply thermal

True, but on my G3 BW 350 MHz there wasn't any thermal paste. With these
processors there isn't that much heat emission.

My old 50 MHz Intel i486 also didn't use thermal paste, although it had a
heatsink with a fan, what I would call: “loosly attached.” But back in the
days this was normal.


So, if there is none in the first place, there is nothing to reapply.


There is the possibility that someone previously took it apart and 
neglected to re-apply it; also I don't think it can hurt if applied 
properly.

Re: efficient EMac HD transfer

2011-08-29 Thread Tina K.

Please help me with my EMac 1.25 GHz PowerPC G4 / 768 MB DDR SDRAM
running Leopard 10.5.8.

My internal 80 GB HD is becoming a bit crowded sharing space with all my
data and application files. So I have just copied the application and
data files over to a new 1 T external HD where they have plenty of elbow
room.

My question is: Is there a simple way to convince the OS to stop looking
for the various links on the original internal drive and coax it instead
into finding them on the new drive?

I wish to decommission the original files, leaving only the OS on the
internal HD, and I would like not to have to relink each individual lost
link to its new location. Relinking one by one would be a pain.

What is the most efficient way to accomplish the transfer?

Your suggestions are welcomed.


Do you mean to say that you want the OS on the internal HDD, and you 
user folder on the external HDD?


IF THAT IS THE CASE, go to System Preferences/Accounts, and authenticate 
as an admin if the lower left padlock is locked. Control click (right 
click does not seem to work) on your account in the list of accounts on 
the left. Advanced Options… will appear, click on it and you will be 
shown several advanced options.


As the name implies, these are advanced features. Messing with them 
could leave you permanently logged out.


At the line Home directory: click Choose… and select the home 
directory on the external HDD that you want to use.

That is correct, if all of the addressees are BCC none of them will be 
able to see who else it went out to.


On the flip side, if you want to see who you sent a message to 
previously using BCC, double-click the message and when it opens in it's 
own window it should show who the recipients were. Note that this only 
works for messages you originated, not messages you received BCC.

When I try to properly shut down or restart my G4 Quicksilver OS 10.5.8,

I can shut it down with the power button and bring it back up.

I zapped the PRAM. I've repaired permissions and run disk repair.  The
disk repair had to make some repairs, which seems a little ominous to me.

But it's back to square one.  I can't paroperly shut down or restart the
machine.

Sound familiar to anyone?


I had a similar problem, when I tried to logout Leopard everything would 
quit, even the dock  menubar, and then it would just hang for as long 
as my patience would last (overnight once, still had to do a hard 
shutdown). But I don't recall seeing the SBBOD.


Doing a Safe Boot (hold down the shift key after the 'bong' tone) helped 
a little, but not for very long. Finally I gave up and went back to 10.4.


Software needs brought me back to 10.5, but this time I did an Archive  
Install, instead of an Upgrade install and I haven't had the problem since.


So my question would be, did you install Leopard as an upgrade or as an 
archive? If it was an upgrade, you might try doing a clean install or an 
archive  install, backing up your data first of course.

You could try putting the kb in an airtight container along with a good

iLife OEM CD/DVD Burner

At what point did Apple remove the OEM burner requirement for iLife? My 
iMac (below) needs a new optical drive and I'm wondering if it has to be 
Pioneer.

Thank you Bruce. I couldn't remember if it changed with an OS upgrade or

Yours is probably the first model, as it came with an 80GB hard drive,

The clear distinguishing characteristic is that the OS 9 booting model

Router: US Robotics MAXg, Model 5461.

Computers:

1. G4 Quicksilver 867. Tiger 10.4.11. This is the one I use the most to
go online. It picksup from the downstairs router using a  Belkin 54g USB
Network Adapter/Ralink Wireless Utility driver, version 1.2.8.0u. (Note
to Kris Tilford: I saw your posts about this awhile back, but I didn't
then, and still do not need or want to upgrade it.)

2. G3/800 iBook. Tiger 10.4.11, has built in Airport. I use this to go
online a lot and may soon possibly be using it online as much or more
than the QS.

3. G4 1.5 GHz Mac Mini. Tiger 10.4.2. I usually don't go online with
this machine (it's my dedicated Sims Box), but it does have built-in
Airport and on infrequent occasions I do pop open Dashboard (to look at
the weather widget) or Safari for a quick informational surf to a Sims
forum.

4. My BF's work PC laptop (running Windoze XP) also needs to be able to
occasionally join.

There is also a small but definite possibility I may play with trying to
get my pre-OS X Macs in on it, so it would be NICE if this would work
between 7.5.5 and 9.2.2.


If you download the manual for your router it should have instructions 
for password protecting your network (or maybe you have a printed manual?).


IIRC the classic Mac OS' only support 802.11b and WEP encryption, which 
as previously mentioned is less secure than WPA but better than nothing.

According to EveryMac.com Jeff's explaination is spot on.

we can, trying not to fall for phish attacks, locking the screen when 
walking away from the machine, being smart about what  where you 
download something, etc… Strong random character passwords are only one 
ingredient in the security pie.



Far too many people fetishize long, random passwords as teh shizzle
of computer security, when they're not (and there's not a whole lot
of evidence that they've been all that good at preventing compromise
in the first place, mainly because of the human element).


Correct me if I'm wrong, but it is my impression that the longer the 
password the longer it takes to crack.



This is why banks (among other reasons like people using 'password'
for their passwords) have moved to multi-factor authentication. you
need to enter your username/password AND the little picture needs to
be correct; or they use RSA dongles. (themselves hacked at a higher
level. RSA*claims*  that SecurID is ok, but I'll wager there was a
mass need for pants dry-cleaning
there...http://www.schneier.com/blog/archives/2011/03/rsa_security_in.html)


I would say that some forms of multi-factor authentication can actually 
hinder security. My CU switched to using login name, password, and 
personal information challenge. This has forced me to use the same 
phrase for all the questions because my favorite movie changes over 
time, I don't remember my first teacher's name, my mother's maiden name 
is public record, and so on.


IMO this is much more of a hindrance than strong random passwords.

Well, I suspect that Cliff is actually talking about Label colors,

There's your answer right there.


To color the actual folder, you need to have folder icons of
different colors handy, such as those here:


http://www.myappleguide.com/blogs/iphone-world/2224/colored-folder-icons-leopard
and change the icon by doing a Get Info on the icon file, selecting
the icon, copying it, doing a Get Info on the target folder,
selecting the icon and pasting it; same way it's worked since OS 7
or so...


I believe that Unsanity's Labels X can color just the icon.

But it is still a haxie and haxies can possibly have negative effects on 
your system. Caveat emptor (which Google actually translates to let him 
beware of the buyer).

I would like to burn something with Toast onto a Dual Layer DVD.
I have Toast on my Dual 450 Gig Ethernet, and
I have a Dual Layer capable Super Drive in my Lombard...

As far as I know there is no way on earth to get a Lombard into Target
disk mode, even though I have Firewire PC card.
I tried to install Toast 9 on the Lombard, and that does not work either.

I need Toast because I want the DVD to be bootable, and Disk Utility
does not seem to be doing the trick.

Can I somehow use that burner over the LAN, in Toast?
Or is there some way to burn a bootable disk from .dmg that I am not
thinking of?

Both systems are running 10.4.11


Install an older version of Toast on the Lombard that supports 
ToastAnywhere?


Swap the HDDs?

Swap the ODDs?

Transfer the file via Bonjour?

Transfer the file via flash drive?

My Al book has worse reception than my G4 iBooks did, and all of my

For the OP perhaps a 'repeater' would solve your problem?

I don't know why faxing was accepted and emailing wasn't, but apparently
