Mac OS X & Mac OS X Server
I'm currently using a 9i developer release on Mac OS X (10.3) which has
proved very stable so far. My understanding of the various Oracle press
releases is that 10G will be released for Mac OS X, are there any beta
testers out there wiling to comment on availabilitu/quality/performance
issues for 10G on Mac OS X?
Another question is whether tools such as the OEM will be available in 10G
for Mac OS X, does anybody know?
Yours in anticipation!

...Help needed : Mac OS X & OS 9.x and Windows-Server
Until now we are using different Mac's running OS 9.1 and 9.2 and save our
files on a Windows 2000 Server via MacServerIP (AFP over IP). In the next
time we like to upgrade to OS X.
Our problem: Files saved on the Server from OS 9 via AFP will be recognized
by OS X as "Document" without application information. I tried to connect
the Server via SMB and otherwise via AFP. When I manually used AFP
("afp://<servername>") the volume becomes visible, but if I try to select on
file the file will be go away. Next time I connect to the volume the file is
visible again. U...[ANN] Graphviz for Mac OS X 1.12 (v8) [ANN] Graphviz for Mac OS X 1.12 (v8) [ANN] Graphviz for Mac OS X 1.12 (v8)
It's been a busy week or two at Pixelglow Software. Here's a brand new
version of Graphviz, all spit and polish now. You'll enjoy the
integrated color and font panel support, hand cursor panning and
remembered settings. And everyone's most asked for -- a single click
on the Edit tool will now bring up the DOT code for you to edit, and
of course when you save it the graph automatically re-renders.
Here's the lowdown:
Added edit, render and stop toolbar items [PCh].

I've just released the newest version of Mac Graphviz, featuring
shapefile support and enhanced zoom.
Shapefiles supported include PDF, EPS, PS, JPEG, PNG and all Quicktime
formats. Either specify an absolute or relative (to working directory)
file path, or a URL using the shapefile attribute.
Developers can now also use the graphviz.framework directly with
#include headers in C e.g. using Xcode "Add Frameworks...";
documentation is available from the main Graphviz site --

It seems that Mac OS X has partially documented issues

generation of EPS, and I'm trying to find a workaround.
The Preview application cannot export to eps, but it can read it
(converting it to PDF). If I use Adobe Acrobat to read the PDF
generated by Preview, the EPS it generates sometimes (inconsistently)
causes dvips to make an unreadable file.

Your Mac won't start up in Mac OS X (Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier)
Nothing can be more frustrating than turning on your Mac only to find
that it won't start up. Instead of seeing the Finder, you see a blue or
gray screen, an icon of a broken folder, a kernel panic, a flashing
question mark, or a computer that just sits there. What can you do?
Don't worry. It could be a simple issue that you can fix yourself.
Note: This article applies to Mac OS X 10.3.9 or earlier.
Tip: If your computer won't start at all, skip to "You see a blank,

Looking at the code in Mac/Carbon/FileDlg.cpp, at NavEventProc, in
response to the kNavCBPopupMenuSelect event, I noticed that the code
takes the LAST extension from the filter and attaches it to the file.
I find this a bit strange, and I would expect the FIRST extension of
each file type to be the most dominant one, so that it's used as the
default extension if none is supplied.

Someone told me that Mac OS X 10.7.x and 10.8.x do not come with iLife
like the older Mac OS X versions (e.g., 10.5.x). I did not know this!
Since my client uses iPhoto that came preinstalled on his old 2008
MacBook Pro's Mac OS X 10.5.x (10.5.8 right now), can he use the old one
from 10.5.8? Or will he need a third party replacement (needs to
import/copy the old image files) or buy a new iPhoto version for his
photo(graph)s? I recalled he did not like iPhoto and wonder if the new
one is any better.
Thank you in advance. :)

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Just a reminder to coincide with today's release of Mac OS X 10.3
("Panther"), the MIT Kerberos team has released an updated version of
the Mac OS X Kerberos Extras that work with both Mac OS X 10.2
(Jaguar) and Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther).
The Mac OS X Kerberos Extras allow CFM-based applications, such as
Eudora and Fetch, to work with OS X's built-in Kerberos.
Older releases of the OS X Kerberos Extras will not work with Mac OS X
10.3. You must have the latest release (which was released back in
June) for it to work with Panther. However...Help! Sendmail on Mac OS X Server
I am having trouble running a perl script on a Mac OS X (Panther)

I tested the OS X server with some simple perl scripts without using

a) TrueType fonts (.ttf - the vast majority) can simply be *moved* to

b) OpenType fonts (.otf) can be placed there as well but require Adobe
