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.
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.
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.
it took so LONG to sleep my macbook when closing the lid, and I wanted to eliminate security concerns with the sleep image being on the hard drive, so I tried that SmartSleep preferences panel, latest version. It worked for awhile (this is on Snow Leopard. But now it hibernates every time again! I've tried resetting the setting to something different, then back to just "sleep".
if it's possible to disable these annoying warning messages that pop up when trying to open certain files on the Mac? I work a lot with web files and constantly have to click "Open" on this dialogue box when opening a new file has become a bit tiresome.
I am trying to disable my Isight on a couple of computers used at our library. Under MacHints I found out that, when a program from OS X (Tiger at least) needs to access the integrated iSight camera, it has to call the QuickTimeUSBVDCDIgitizer.component. This file is located in the /System � Library � QuickTime folder. How can I find this folder? When I search for it does not come up.
Or did anybody else figure out a way to disable this.
Oh, yeah, taping over it is a good suggestion but clever people just removed.
I use MBP (2,6G, 4Gb DDR2, Leopard 10.5.5), and I want to disable horizontal scrolling because it become annoying when I'm working with spreadsheet (always move right or left by it self....really annoying ). When I used Powerbook (1,5G, 1,25Gb DDR2, Tiger 10.4.11) there is an option to disable / enable this feature..it's great. But with this MBP and Leopard 10.5.5 there is no option for horizontal scrolling.
When I install a new program I get a window that pops up asking me for my password. I don't have a Master Password for my computer, I left it blank intentionally so all I have to do is click on OK and the program installs. Likewise, sometimes when I delete some items on my computer this same window pops up.How can I disable this most annoying Password Window?
I got my new MacBook Late 2008 and I'm looking for the option, that the trackpad gets turned off when a mouse is connected. But this feature got removed on the new Macbooks. But I still want this feature. Is there a command in Terminal to enable this option anyway?
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?
Recently, I have had this problem when my system logs off automatically. Usually in the middle of using VLC (most probably moving the window from one place to another), it just logs off. No error or anything else is shown. I could relogin and start my work normally.
Have restarted my computer after the second incident but the problem still persisted.
I would like to disable some processes from starting upon login, but can't figure out how. I am not referring to the Login Items of System Preferences>Accounts. I have checked /Library/StartupItems/ (empty), /Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist (essentially empty), and ~/Library/Preferences/loginwindow.plist (which only contains the things that i do want, it matches my account preferences).
I'm using iChat to connect to Facebook's IM protocol and cannot figure out how to turn off all the little notifications windows popping up in the top right corner telling me about people signing on/off/idle/etc.It is annoying to have a few hundred friends and constantly see it telling me about people getting on/off but I'd still like to be connected to the service.
I'm feeding the headphone output of my G4 1.1 ibook to an amp. I need to prevent the built in mic from passing its audio to the output. However, there does not seem a way to do this in preferences-ie to switch off the mics without also turning off the output volume. Can the mics be disabled some other way?
Is there a way to disable/turn off multicasting on my OSX server ?
The reason I ask is because I am trying to deploy netinstall images to client Macs and when I am trying to do this my network grinds to a halt and someone said to me that multicast may have something to do with this ?
