OS X :: How To Disable Journaling

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.

OS X Leopard :: Disable Journaling On External Drive That Won't Mount?
I'm trying to fix a hard drive that gives me the "Invalid content in journal" error. I've run the latest TechTool and Drive Genius and they say the drive is fine, except for its crippling inability to actually mount. Onyx and Cocktail won't touch it until its mounted.

OS X Leopard :: Mac Journaling Gone / Lost
I recently found out that the format of my hard disk has changed. It lost the journaling. It used to formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled), but several utilities now show me that it's only Mac OS Extended. I'm not sure when or how this happened, but this can't be good. After discovering this I tried to fix the disk. I tried Apple's Disk Utility, Cocktail and TechTool Pro, but they all couldn't solve the problem (message was usually something like 'enabling journaling of ... failed'). Furthermore, I cannot perform a permissions repair anymore. Disk Utility will just stall and TechTool Pro says permissions repair failed. This is getting pretty scary. Any ideas how I can fix this (short of wiping and reformatting the disk of course) and what caused it? Hardware and file system seem to be O.K. Would it help to run the Mac Os X Combo installer again?

IMac Intel :: Backing Up Without Journaling?
I just got a new Seagate external HDD to back up my music and photos to, but after I formatted it, all of a sudden my Mac went to a dead stop. At first, I had no idea why my Mac was going so slow, and I was looking up online reasons as to why I had this problem, but I came up with nothing.About 4 days later, I decided to unplug the HDD and all of a sudden my Mac went as fast as ever before. After further research I found out that formatting as Journaled slows down you Mac. Now my Mac isn't too old... it's an '07, 2.0GHz dual core, 4GB RAM, but honest to gosh, my Mac is almost completely unusable with an external HDD plugged in.

MacBook Aluminum :: HFS No Journaling Formatting
I have a Western Digital Media Player. The hard drive can be Fat32 (which doesn't support files of 4gig) or NTFS (which I am trying right now from my pc), but it can also take HFS no journaling. I have always formatted my mac external drives as mac os extended so i can transfer larger files. Two questions: does HFS no journalling allow for files over 4 gig and how do i do this because i can't find it under disk utility.

Hardware :: Small Recording Device For Journaling?
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.

MacBook Pro :: New 17 Inch System - Journaling Disabled
I'm perplexed by this. I got my new MacBook Pro 17 Inch on Monday. I decided to try partitioning. I went to Disk Utility and discovered that journaling is not enabled. The choice to make it so is grayed out. How could this happen? What should I do about it?

Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: NetRestore Image - Journaling Not Enabled
I have created a NetRestore image from a 10.6 Installation DVD, created on a RW Sparseimage, updated and then converted to RO image.I also created another image from a System with Applications (cleaned up Cache files, Spotlight indexes and LKDC). Both imaged when deployed through NetRestore does not have Journaling enabled (we have to enable it by hand). I noticed it to some systems that needed Bootcamp to be installed. Is it a NetRestore bug, or should I have to do something during the image creation?

MacBook Pro :: Disable Wake On USB Or Disable USB Port Altogether?
I have a MacBook Pro that has recently started waking up from sleep at random intervals. It happens more frequently when it is plugged in to the power adapter, but it does happen when unplugged as well. Looking through the Console logs, I noticed "Wake reason = USB1" even though I haven't plugged a USB device into the laptop in days. My current theory is that there's some sort of short or other hardware problem causing the laptop to think something is plugged in to the USB port.

With that in mind, is there any way to stop the MacBook Pro from waking up on a USB signal? There doesn't seem to be a relevant option in any of the System Preferences menus, nor in pmset. Is there somewhere else I should look?

If there isn't, is there any way to just disable that USB port entirely? Ideally, I'd like to disable just the port on the side with the power plug (apparently USB1), but I'd be fine with disabling both of them and just re-enabling them when I need them (infrequently at best)

To recap, things I'd like to be able to do in order of preference:

1. disable wake on USB

2. disable a single USB port

3. disable all USB ports

OS X :: How To Disable Bonjour
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?
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?

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".

OS X Leopard :: How To Disable Other Login Account
I've read topic after topic about how to disable the "Other" login account. It is usually the root user, and by using the Directory Utility, the Leopard DVD, or the Terminal command, you can disable it. I have tried all of these, yet still when I power on my MacBook it has the "Other" account there. However, it only shows up when I am on the local network at my office.

If I am offline or on another network, it does not appear. Furthermore, whenever I am offline and the "Other" account is not present, my login time takes 60 seconds or longer most of the time. These bits of info may also help: There is an XServe on our network, on which I am an admin. I have the Server Admin Tools installed on my MacBook. I back up to a drive on the XServe with Time Machine over the LAN.
