OS X :: How Do I Check If I Have 64-bit Incompatible Extensions/applications
Sep 9, 2009
Just doing some pre-SL install research. I'm curious about running the kernel in 64-bit mode. I have a mid 2009 13" MBP so the hardware should be able to boot into the 64-bit kernel. I don't use a whole ton of 3rd party applications and not many external peripherals so I think I might be able to get away with k64.
But, is there a way for me to check for sure? How do I know if certain apps or peripherals/extensions are not 64-bit? If I click on the apps and use "Get Info" will that tell me? Perhaps there is a list somewhere similar to the SL compatibility wiki that tells people's experiences with 64-bit compatibility. What if I boot into k64 and try to run an incompatible item, will the OS tell me so, or just crash, or just not work, or what?
As far as peripherals:
iPod touch 2G
Mighty Mouse (bluetooth)
i1 Display2 colorimeter
I am having a problem with Photoshop Elements 8. The software will not open on my iMac for it says that I am missing applications or something around that ballpark. Once I come home from my gf's house I will be able to give you guys/girls the exact message I get when trying to open PSE8. I do not know if the PSE8 is compatible with my current iMac due to its model/year/specs etc. I purchased my iMac around the year of late 2006 early 2007. Should PSE8 be compatible with my iMac or not?
I believe it should, but yet I do not know the reason why it will not open. I recently purchased the Bamboo Pen & Touch for my gf and it came with the PSE8 software. I Installed the PSE8 on her iMac (Which she purchased the Black Friday that passed.) But before installing the PSE8 on the iMac, the Bamboo installer was installed first. Maybe I need to install the Bamboo installer before installing the PSE8 software that was included with the Tablet product?
The only reason I haven't switched from Firefox to Safari yet is because I check some Arabic news websites, and they seem to be incompatible with Safari or something. I attached screencaps of what they look like (Al-Jazeera, Al-Arabiya) As you can see, the text is out of place. It really is an eyesore.
I decided I had enough of Mail's 'misdemeanors' and completed erased every trace from my hard drive. The application, my messages, the preference files, the cache et al, only to realize my poor anger management. I use Snow Leopard 10.6.2, with Mail 4.2 configured on a Gmail IMAP account. I tried reinstalling mail using Pacifist, but the version provided in my installer disk being Mail 4.0, I learned that it's incompatible with the 10.6.2 updated version. I suppose there are no updates available for Mail specifically. In a wild goose chase, I ran software update in a bid to update ver. 4.0 to ver. 4.2, but to no avail. What should I do now? How do I this goddamn Mail working back again?
I did a dick head move and downloaded effects for photo booth. The reason why it's a dick head move was because I didn't realize that the effects was for photo booth 2.1.1 and I'm running 3.0.2. Now my default effect quality is terrible and you cant hardly take a "good" picture. Is there any way I can remove the new effects and get my regular back to the way it is suppose to be?
Have just installed 10.7.4. Now, I finally have to hose PPC (and even some hangover Classic) applications. I know, I know, I should have done it earlier, before even Snow Leopard. For me, the easiest place to ID them is in ABOUT THIS MAC ➜ MORE INFO ➜ SYSTEM REPORT ➜ SOFTWARE ➜ APPLICATIONS ➜ which in the sub categories of CLASSIC and PPC are rosters of > 250 items. How to trash them from this window? Or elsewhere? I’ve tried click-and-drag (both singly and by batch) delete (both singly and by batch), all unsuccessfully.

I was trying to install the gmail reader extension, but it told me that I don't have Extensions enabled. I know it's probably staring me right int the face, but how do you enable extensions? I've gone through pretty much everything I can think of and Safari help is no good at all.
There are a lot of great ideas floating around of what extensions would make Safari 5 more useful. I figured it'd be worthwhile to put up a single thread that compiles a list of ideas ranked by popularity. I'll start it off:

To get an accurate popularity ranking, please also vote on ideas you like that have already been mentioned.
1) Does anyone know when, in particular, the extensions gallery will go live? Later this summer is a bit vague. I'm waiting on a few crucial extensions (e.g., AdBlock, WOT, Xmarks).
2) Concerning the Search Bar (Bing, Google, Yahoo!), will I be able to add additional search fields via the extensions gallery (provided someone creates them, of course)?
I presently use firefox and found the 'MyCroft Project' to be absolutely invaluable. It allows me to search common websites without having to navigate to them directly (url). If I can get this added capability, I will switch over for good!
I am having an odd problem. I have safari extension enabled, and I even have a few installed. Today though, when I went to double click on and install a new extension, instead of installing it re-downloads the extension. The extension is definitely .safariextz.
I'm just wondering - do you guys use Safari extensions, and if so, which? I used to use Saft, Inquisitor and Safariblock. Just run into Glims today - how do you like it compared to Saft? Obviously, it runs with WebKit nightlies which Saft does not, that's a point. As for adblocking - is Safariblock state of the art, or do you recommend something else?
The selection of Apple approved extensions is dismal at best. Am I the only one who was expecting a bit more selection, especially given the additional wait time after the launch of Safari 5? How does Apple expect Safari 5 to compete with Firefox when it has so few (approved) extensions? Since the launch of the extensions gallery, I haven't seen much change in the available offerings, even though there is still a wealth of non-approved extensions out there. So what gives? Is it a lack of developers? Is Apple being too stringent in its method of approving extensions?
As the Title of The Post says, i need to know if Apple Hardware check, Does check the hard drive. I'm getting a little bit more frequent hard drive clicks so i want to make sure my HD is not failing. So i need to know as so as possible if Apple hardware check looks for Hard drive Problems. And if it does not. Can someone point me into some Utilities i can use?
Many extensions on extensions.apple.com cannot be installed.However, extensions that I installed before, no problem, such as AdBlock, Bing, Echofon. Others, will not install, it will be stuck at installing. And Safari may lose response after a while. I initially noticed that if I try to install YouTube5 which I downloaded myself, Safari will immediately lose response.
- Reset Safari - Run OnyX - Repair disk permissions - Deleting all the extensions; extensions I installed before will install, others won't - Deleting Clicktoflash and Glims
My Photoshop CS5 does not like it if I move image files into folders generated on my Mac Book Pro it is only with the HDR & Merge features. If I do not have image files inside the folder generated by my
I have had a look at previous Q & A and am satisfied that 1.5 GB ram is fine in the eMac however i would like to know what the symptoms would be if there was memory incompatibility.
There is a long story , here is the short version.... Basically things went into a frenzy, wouldn't even shut down. The (additional) memory wasn't put in at my place and the computer also had updates done by the other person, when it came back it was unbelievable.. and worrying... my son refitted the 2 sticks that were in it, still frenzy, thought it was wrecked, looked up book, did safe boot. after angonising minutes everything came back.
Gathered courage and we re installed the (new) 1gb alongside incumbent 512 and now things seem ok.
I don't believe the ram is /was faulty so something else went on.
The sticks that are in the machine are 512gb DDR SDRam PC3200U 30440 ( this was one of a matched pair)
1 gb DDR SDRam PC 3200U 30330 ( this is the new one)
I felt i bought the 1gb carefully to be compatible. I do see there is a difference in the last number.

I'm working for a small production company and we've been finding ourselves in need of a powerful and easy to use system for checking in/out equipment, hard drives, tapes and other various bits... We also rent equipment equipment regularly and would like it all to come through the same process.
My little brother just got a mac and I suspect he's been looking at some adult sites... I would just like to know if there is a way I can check his history/ logs from my Airport extreme network or from my computer?
I get this error message when I try to check for purchases: "Unable to check for available downloads. The iTunes store is temporarily unavailable. please try again later." This has been going on for months. Upgrading to snow leopard didnt change it. Various iTunes upgrades haven't changed it. What can I do? I'm running iTunes 9.0.2, OS X 10.6.2 on a Unibody Macbook.
I have the latest unofficial MS Office 2011 and all the words in my documents that are in English are underlined with a red color telling me to spell check. When I right click on the word, it gives me the suggested words in Turkish. I went under tools/language and change it back to English but it automatically changes back to Turkish or sometimes to Portuguese. I had this issue on the MS Office 2008 as well and I was wondering if anyone has any idea how to fix this.
