Yeah, it sucks that Apple Mail does not support GPG. :-( I wish it did because I prefer GPG encrypted e-mail too. I also agree that information surrounding S/MIME and generating your own e-mail certificates is hard to come by. I found Paul Bramscher's webpage has a good description of how to create your own Certificate Authority certificate. I don't ...

Well a little patience and it showed up on one of my mailing lists (and now on Apple's KBase: TS3187): Either: 1) Add to /etc/mail/spamassassin.conf score FH_DATE_PAST_20XX 0.0 or 2) Fix the rule in /usr/share/spamassassin/72_active.cf by replacing the FH_DATE_PAST_20XX line with: header FH_DATE_PAST_20XX Date =~ /20[2-9][0-9]/ [if-unset: 2006] ...

ls doesn't care about the permissions of a file because it's only listing its directory entry. However, when ls dereferences a symbolic link, it is accessing the contents of the link. So it does care about the permissions of the link. Here you don't have the permission to read what the target of libodm10.dylib is unless you're in the dba group. You need to ...

If you don't want to muck about with config settings for either mysql or php, then set up this hack: mkdir /var/mysql ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/mysql/mysql.sock This creates an alias in the location that PHP is looking for that connects to the real mysql.sock.

OS X Cannot read an LVM Volume, and there are no 3rd party drivers at the moment (or that I'm aware of) to do so. The easiest solution would be to boot off a linux live cd (Ubuntu etc) on your imac, mount the drive, and copy the data elsewhere. You could also maybe try installing a Linux virtual machine using one of many 3rd party products (VMware Fusion, ...

The flags -E / --extended-attributes were not part of the official rsync distribution, and were a patch included by Apple at a time when the official rsync release didn't support them. Now, rsync verson 3.x has reimplemented extended attribute support in a manner incompatible with Apple's patch. According to the rsync manual page for 3.0.6, ...

Adding FollowSymlinks to the htaccess didn't work for me so I googled a bit a found another solution It turns out there is another Directory block in /etc/apache2/users/.conf in which you need to add FollowSymlinks to Options and change AllowOverride to All <Directory "/Users/<your user>/Sites/"> Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymlinks ...

Samba has two ways of setting perms for an uploaded file: Without UNIX extensions: preset file/directory mask is used With UNIX extensions (which probably MacOS client has): that allows clients to control file perms Here's the lines you should add to config file (smb.conf): # For case 1: no UNIX extensions create mask = 0644 directory mask = 0755 # For ...

Sorry this doesn't help the OP, but I can confirm that unix extensions = no worked for me. I have Macs running Snow Leopard connecting to Linux (lenny/sid) server with Samba 3.2.3. I am posting this so people will still try that. Much like others, before I put the unix extensions = no line in, the force create mode was being ignored.

My guess is that this is a routing issue. Try going to System Preferences -> Network, click the Gear/configuration icon under the interface list and select "Set Service Order..." from the pop-up menu. Once in the service order sheet, drag your VPN connection to the very top, save the settings, and try again. Leave the "Send all traffic over VPN connection" ...

For clarification, only Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard Server and Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Server are only allowed to be virtualized on Apple hardware. (per the EULA) VMWare Fusion 2 and 3 both have native support for Snow Leopard Server - just insert the DVD, and start up VMWare Fusion's wizard to create a new virtual machine with Snow Leopard. Snow Leopard ...

I get exactly the same behaviour. The trigger is copying something to the clipboard on the Vista (ie client) machine. The default behaviour of VNC clients is to synchronise the clipboard between the host and server machines, so this is sending some kind of message to the Mac (server). I've reproduced this using TightVNC, UltraVNC and RealVNC on Vista and ...

You can kill the mysql process manually. $ ps ax | grep mysql Note the process id. Then, $ kill __pid__ Next thing you should do is edit your my.cnf file, and check to make sure that the socket location is /tmp/mysql.sock. For example, this is what my [client] section looks like: [client] user=mysql port=3306 socket=/tmp/mysql.sock Let's say $MYSQL ...

Postfix has no idea about duplicate emails due to the way it's structured. It is possible to do what you're suggesting by using procmail as your delivery agent. Essentially, each message coming from a client should be delivered with a unique Message-Id. In the case that it's delivered to multiple people, the Message-Id should be the same, so we save any ...

Check to see if your search domain is set. I just tried it (with my search domain set); ping and nslookup work. As does Safari and Firefox. However, dig does not by default on MacOS X 10.6 use the search domain. To do that do: dig +search example And that will work correctly

Activating web sharing should be enough to get it running. Unless you've screwed with the config and messed something up. I just tried it, and on 127.0.0.1 I see the default Apache landing page. Is there any possiblity that under Security->Firewall->Advanced that you've clicked the checkbox that says "block all incoming connections"?

Check your error log for details of exactly why access was forbidden; it can be because of filesystem permissions, but it can also be because of Apache path permissions -- if the Apache config has something like: <Directory /Users/*/Sites> allow from all </Directory> But nothing equivalent for /Users/*/code, then Apache won't allow HTTP ...

By default all packages installed by MacPorts are installed within the /opt/local tree. Make sure each user either has this reflected in their path, or calls the binary with the full path. export PATH=${PATH}:/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin Failing that, check to make sure the prefix variable is set correct in the macports.conf file. The global file can ...

The only way I know is with MacOS Server, which offers something similar to WSUS from Microsoft. This is heavily dependent on how you use the machines (i.e. AFP speed improvements doesn't help you when you don't use AFP). Again, with MacOS Server it's easy, but there are alternatives for this, but I don't have any experience with this.

You'll need a Snow Leopard Server to do this, but it has a Software Update Server that you can use. It mirrors the updates from apple.com and makes them available on your network. If you want, you can manually choose which updates to mirror and approve. There's freeware tools for setting the Software Update server on your clients if you don't want to get ...

How about just SSH to your box and forward those ports, there's plenty of SSH articles here: http://serverfault.com/questions/90676/how-does-ssh-port-forwarding-work-exactly http://serverfault.com/questions/88141/ssh-port-forwarding

Got it! I'm not sure if it's a bug in Snow Leopard, or some new security feature. But someone posted to the sshuttle mailing list the fix to the problem, which is simply this: sysctl -w net.inet.ip.scopedroute=0 Running that command makes the above set of commands (in the question posted above) work correctly as it did in MacOS 10.5. Thus, transparent ...

1 word... SNMP. After SNMP is installed, there are hundreds of tools that can monitor your machines and create all sorts of pretty graphs of whatever you wish to monitor. (cpu/ram/processes running/etc...) I recommend something like Cacti. It's pretty simple to get going.

Rather than monkeying with Apple's version (which they will update and likely break everything you modified), I suggest you check out MacPorts instead. They allow you to build Apache with variants to add the components you need.

No. The daemon ( server ) is completely separate from what you're trying to run, which is the client. It's like the difference between a web server and a browser. The server can run all day long and not care whether you've got a browser running or not. I don't know how Mac init scripts run, but if mysqld (note the 'd' suffix) is ever running at all, it ...

Update: When MosChip updated their website (and, shortly thereafter, their management), they bounced driver downloads to ASIX Electronics Corp.. The latest(?) available version is v1.0.0.8, dated 08 March 2007, which is the same version as that listed in @pridkett's comment, below, but not the same date (his link says 22 Jan 2010). It's described as being ...

Yes, they can. see this article… Mac OS X Lion Adds CoreStorage, a Volume Manager (Finally!) What is a volume manager? Volume managers add flexibility to operating system allocation of storage, acting as a virtualization layer between disks and file systems. This is important, since modern computer systems need to maintain a consistent filesystem ...

The diskutil cs list command is what you're looking for. Try that at the terminal. Then type diskutil cs for a short list of CoreStorage commands you can use. I wrote more about it on my blog here:.

I had the same problem... to address this issue I created a Mac OS X kernel extension which maps simple Linux LVM layouts to logical partitions in Mac OS X: https://github.com/unsound/IOLVMPartitionScheme It's available under an open source license (LGPLv2.1). It's not a complete volume manager, obviously, so only single-disk LVM layouts can be expected ...
