OS X :: How To Disable Journaling

Oct 22, 2007

Using a new MacBook (C2D, 2.16 GHz) but am multibooting with number of Linux OSes. To make OS X writable from Linux, I need to remove journaling from the OS X partition.So, I go to Disk Utility and here's the info available about my Mac OS X partition: Quote:

Mount Point :/Capacity :113.0 GB (121,332,826,112 Bytes)
Format :Mac OS Extended (Journaled)Available :54.2 GB (58,217,304,064 Bytes)
Owners Enabled :YesUsed :58.8 GB (63,115,522,048 Bytes)
Number of Folders :115,197Number of Files :436,726

t looks like it's journaled so I should be able to disable journaling, right? now I go to File and look for a Disable Journaling option. But it's not there. What's there is Enable Journaling but even this is grayed out.

Hardware :: Small Recording Device For Journaling?

Jun 28, 2009

I would like to find an inexpensive mini recording device for journaling... audio quality not a big concern... but something I could speak into then easily transfer to and archive on my MacBook. I would transfer like this often, so would like something that came with an app to capture it easily, via USB, for example, or wirelessly via BlueTooth.

OS X :: How To Disable Bonjour

Feb 11, 2009

Not Finder > pref > sidebar

I want to disable MY mac from showing up on other peoples Macs "shared sidebar" at school. We use the same network or same wireless router. I went to my shared folder and disabled EVERYTHING and made sure I have a password now not in the dictionary.

So. Can my Mac be accessed, viewed or seen now? Can someone view my screen remotely (hack) using Bonjour WITHOUT ME KNOWING IT?

I see tons of other computers on my side bar but i am worried they see mines and can some how control it without me knowing. I do know not to click any strange links from emails and such.. Like I said I've disabled ALL sharing and just made a password.

OS X :: How To Disable Secure Trash?

Oct 4, 2009

Since I got SL and had a small trashcan, opened it up, and instead of emptying it via dock and just hit the "secure" button in the window out of laziness, every time I empty the trash, it does it securely, which takes a lot of time. I have a very large trash load and don't particularly feel like devoting the full CPU to writing over files I simply don't need anymore (mostly old downloads). Is this a feature? How do I disable it?

Just got a new imac with 10.6. Our folder system has a lot of folders that the name starts with a space. To get around I used to just start typing the name of the folder starting with a space instead of scrolling through our long file list. Not the best system but we have thousands of folders with linked files and we are not going to change the names. Is there a way to turn off or disable quicklook so that I can use the space bar then type to find the folder?

According to Apple, it can be done by following these directions, however the option it mentions ("Display images and embedded objects in HTML messages") is not available. The only thing I see is "Display remote images in HTML messages," which I have unchecked, but HTML email is still coming through just without the images.

OS X :: How To Disable Connected External Monitor

Jan 17, 2007

Is there an easy way to cause a connected external monitor to be "disabled?" E.G. I have an iMac connected to an LCD TV (via VGA, spanned, external at 1360x768). If the TV is plugged in, even if it's off, the computer switches to spanning mode. The consequence of this is that, if my preferred setup is to have the external be main, for instance, I essentially have to unplug it from the iMac whenever I don't want to be using it. Even if the external is the 2ary dsplay, it means that the mouse can go off the edge of the screen on one side, and that two of the hot corners are messed up. Is there any utility that could do something like add a "disable external display" item to preferences or the menu bar?
