OS X :: Unix Folder Structure Exposed After Installing Leopard?

Nov 5, 2007

I installed Leopard on my MacBook Pro (Core Duo) from day one (totally clean install) and it's been smooth-sailing.

One niggle I had was that my Macintosh HD had all of the ugly Unix file structure exposed (see pic). I thought this was a bit sloppy and un-Apple, then when I saw a friend's mac and realised that it wasn't normal I assumed that for some reason hidden files were just visible - nope. I ran the command line commands to re-hide hidden files and it had no effect.

Anyone know how I can amend this aesthetic atrocity?

Applications :: Trying To Install Unix Telnet / SSH Client

Nov 3, 2010

I'm trying to download PuTTY on OS X 10.5.8

PuTTY info: [URL]

I interpreted the directions as meaning that I unzip the file in my home directory and tried the make command:


jdd:~ jasondancks$ make -f Makefile.gtk

make: Makefile.gtk: No such file or directory

make: *** No rule to make target `Makefile.gtk'. Stop.

Listen fellas I really don't really know whats going on here I just wanted to download this for easy access to the school server. I'm taking a database class and we use the windows version of this to connect. I'm still going through it all I was just wondering if there is a quick way of doing this.

Would the parts referring to 'classic' mac apply to me?

OS X :: Automator For The UNIX Binaries?

Feb 25, 2010

I'm planning to use my Mac Mini media center to replace an old Ventrilo/TeamSpeak server (Winblows). Since I do not plan to have keyboard/mouse access to the Mini, I need to find an easy way to launch the TeamSpeak and Vent server binaries on boot.Since the media center is set to auto-login and run an Automator workflow that mounts 3 AFP volumes and opens Plex, I would like to add upon my script to launch TeamSpeak and Ventrilo server. However, this becomes problematic when I add a Shell Script action. The script keeps running because it is looking for Terminal to complete its action and quit so it can move on to the next process. If I terminate the script, it kills the Ventrilo Server application.

OS X :: Folder Turned Into A UNIX File?

Sep 29, 2009

I'm using Tiger

so I wanted to change my documents icon to a really fancy icon so I found this site called [URL] and followed the steps to change it into a suitcase of some sort. But my documents wouldn't open, and a dialog box popped up and said something about how no application can be run with this and it had the option to choose an application. So I deleted the suitcase, and now the folder has turned into a UNIX file which is not accessible.

OS X :: Mac To UNIX FTP Server - Cannot Upload Files

Oct 7, 2009

Two months ago I switched web hosting providers/services from a Linux server to a UNIX server. For the most part the functionality is fine but the ability to upload files using any FTP client is near impossible. We've tried Fetch (4.x and 5.x) Filezilla, Cyberduck, Dreamweaver, and an old copy of GoLive but it takes 6 minutes or more to upload a 230byte file!. The upload is relatively fast but it hangs up on the exiting handshake, or drops the connection and has to reconnect.

We spoke with Fetch and tested both copies on their UNIX server---no problem. We've tried our other clients on other UNIX, Windows, and Linux servers---no problem. We've had the web host and our service provider look at DNS blocks, etc. and all seems to be fine. Pings and trace routes seem fine. The web host company indicated that they believed that it was an issue with their server but eventually threw up their hands and said that they couldn't figure it out (not Mac friendly I suspect). My questions is two fold:

1) Can anyone give me an idea what IS the problem?
2) Can anyone recommend a good 'Mac-friendly' web hosting service that doesn't have issues with Mac's, will allow installation of a variety of CMS, eCommerce solutions, and of course seamless FTP access with variety of clients.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Read UNIX File

May 15, 2012

I have a cd from a Dr. with x-ray images on it (supposedly).  The files say  "Unix Executable File".  It seems I have no application with which to open them on my fancy desktop....  Can you recommend a software program to open or translate the files so that they are readable, and perhaps compatible with iPhoto?

OS X Server :: How To Verify The Function Of Allow UNIX Tools To Run

My server is the Mac OS X Server 10.4.8. I created one new account for my client machine with its Workgroup Manager tool and set the Application access preferences.

But there is one item "Allow UNIX tools to run", I don't know how to verify its function. Other all could work very well. I ever tried such as ps, wc, tail in command, but they could still work.

Software :: Accessing Unix EXE Files On Server?

Jan 1, 2009

I have a problem with Unix Executable Files. On a certain mac, when I access a file from our server using 10.4.11 most files display as Unix Executable File. I can go to another mac and it will show the same file with the proper file creator icon and description. I am not sure why this single 10.4.11 Mac is doing this.

OS X Technologies :: Unix Processes Go To Sleep Before Completing

Apr 18, 2012

I  regularly run unix commands remotely, or on network-attached drives - exampels are rsync; rm (-r) etc. 

For the following assume its on a NAS drive, mounted to 'Volumes/drive" 

On large jobs, i find that these processes do two things that i cant explain, nor do i like: 

1. they seem to sorta slow down and stall occasionally. I knwo that's vague

2. they stop running when the computer goes to sleep 

Now, the real questyion is, since an active proces is underway, why did it go to sleep? 

I do have "wake on network activity" checked. 

I was able to mostly eliminate this problem by turning off "sleep after X minutes" and moving the energy saver slider to "never"

OS X :: Batch Change Files UNIX Permissions Settings?

Oct 24, 2010

How do I batch change files' UNIX settings? I have web sharing turned on and have it set up so it's serve up the files and folders on my hard disk. It works great, but when I look at the folders it's showing in the web page, approximately 1 in 10 folders just isn't being displayed. The OS X permissions on these folders is all set to "read and write" for everyone, so I presume there is some sort of other UNIX or Apache file/folder settings that are keeping these folders from being displayed in the webpage. How do I make these hidden folders show up in my web page's displayed directory of folders?

OS X :: Unix Command In Terminal To Replace Certain Characters In Files?

Jun 28, 2009

I have a boat load of mp3 files that have a _ instead of a space in the file name. I figure there must be a magical command in the Unix terminal window that would rename the file based on a replacement string.

I want to replace all _ in a file name with a Space. Is there an easy way to do this? Or, maybe a free utility I can download? I'm trying to clean up my files!

OS X Server :: File Display As Unix Executable Files

Nov 6, 2007

I have a problem with Unix Executable Files. When I access a file on our server using 10.4.x most files display as Unix Executable File. The same file accessed using 10.3.x displays the proper file creator icon and description. This seems to be a Tiger issue and it is causing a lot of grief. Many of the files are Quark and fonts. Adding extensions to the files is not an option.

Software :: Deleting User Account (Set As Default) Via Unix

Sep 8, 2008

I have a Mac computer at home that automatically logs in to my daughters user account. Apparently, there is an automatic log-in in her account that has conflicts because whenever the computer is turned on, after the gray apple screen, the screen turns totally blue. I have tried booting up in safe boot (pressing shift key at startup)and get the following message:
darwin/BSD (Laurens-computer.local) (console)

After typing any login, I get a line for typing password but nothing types in the line of password and I keep getting a fast message of incorrect password and the screen goes back to blue and then back to the same darwin line. I have an administrator account on this computer and no combination of logins and passwords seem to work. I have also started the computer with command key + s key and gets into single user mode and is in the root. From there, I do not know how to delete her user account to eliminate the problem as I am not able to get into the computer bypassing her automatic log-in. I do not have any startup disks for this computer as it was donated as a surplus from the school. It is a G3 operating on Mac OS X and I am not sure if the version is 10.3
