Built Xemacs 21.4.21 on OS X 10.5.2 : 2 problems
I just got a new macbook, installed gcc from the included CD, and
downloaded and built Xemacs 21.4.21 according to the instructions on the
www.xemcs.org web site. I'm a bit new to all this (a long-time c-unix
programmer, though), so there are still some unresolved problems.
1) the executable ended up in /usr/src/xemacs-21.4.21/src . Is this
really the right location?
2) The program does run, and gives me a mostly functional Xemacs
(without most of the packages yet), but I can only run it from an xterm
from the command-line. And when I run it, I don't get any icon in ...OS X 10.2.3 to 10.2.8 Install Problems
I recently installed the OS 10.2.8 Update Combo onto a Mac G4, which
was previously running OS 10.2.3. After installing the Update Combo,
I can't view anything on the computer?!?!?!? I tried rebooting the
computer several times, but the computer just goes to a blank desktop
window. No menu commands and desktop items are viewable.
I restarted the computer holding down the X key and rebooting from a
system disk, but nothing. I tried reinstalling the system, but the
hard drive isn't present when trying to select a drive to install the
system onto. I was able to run disk repair, but ...Start up problem OS 10.3 and OS 9.2.2 on G4 466
I have two hard drives in my G4 466. the master HD has panther on it and the
slave has OS 9.2.2. both HDs seem to work fine when starting up with panther.
I want to be able to start up with OS 9.2.2 on the slave. when i set OS 9.2.2
in the system preferences and restart, the computer still starts up in OS 10.3.
when I hold the option key down upon startup, the only option I get is OS 10.3
on the master-no option for the second HD. any suggestions on how to get back
to OS 9.2.2 start up on the slave drive? thanks for your suggestions in

I have a problem I've never seen before on a Mac.

I am not able to click and drag icons on my computer's desktop. It is
as if there is some kind of system glitch or something. I am not able
to select a folder and drag the item anywhere (ie. the dock, another

I get the regular Evil Beach Ball in Eudora, now that I've installed 10.3.2.
I last had 10.2.8, and this Eudora worked fine w/ that version of OS X.
I find it always hard to tell if Eudora has been updated for a new OS
release, as its developers, IMHO, simply "update" Eudora to keep a regular
income stream coming, regardless of the previous rev's compatibility.
Does anyone else see this or similar issue with Eudora under 10.3.x?
