… can be solved easily using Lnx2Mac’s driver :D
His driver is based on Realtec’s Linux driver which has been released under the GPL.
One of – if not even – the best firewall software for the MacOS plattform is available for half the price… Until February 3rd, 2013.
Besides the firewall features for in- and outgoing connections, it also includes a very sophisticated network monitor.
Yeah, it was overdue already. The guys over at MacUpdate just launched their pre-chrismas holiday app bundle. For US$49 you will get:
Anyway: the bundle makes sense at least for the TotalFinder, DataRescue, TotalSpaces and Snapz Pro. Means you can’t do anything wrong by buying it. And who knows, probably PopChar, MoneyWell and Swift Publisher might turn out to be useful aswell. The first 12,000 buyers will get Live Interior 3D for free on top (saves you another US$129)…

Codeweavers do it again. The company behind the commercial version of Wine named CrossOver will be giving away free copies of it again.
On Wednesday October, 31st, everybody can get a free copy of CrossOver with 12mths support.
CrossOver is an emulation layer for MacOS X and Linux. In contrast to virtualization solutions like VMWare, Parallels or VirtualBox, it allows running thousands of Windows applications, tools and games without having to install a legit Windows operating system.

At least on a Mac Audacity seems to have issues when it comes to using third party plugins (i.e. AU or VSTs). To pinpoint which type of plugin is responsible for poor Audacity to crash, you can do the following.
I. Locate Audacity Config File
On a Crapple Mac the
audacity.cfg file should be located here:
Fusion 4.1 Allows Mac OS X Client Installations
With the release of Mac OS 10.7 Lion VMWare seem to have decided that all of Apple’s latest operating systems can be virtualized. VMWare Fusion 4.1. (released Nov 17th, 2011) thus allows the installation of all Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard, and 10.6. Snow Leopard versions; vulgo: the server and client editions.
Voicemail From Infinite Loop
The tiny downside is, VMWare seem to have gotten an urgent call from a fruity garage company in Infinite Loop soon after their release of VMWare Fusion 4.1. That’s why they issued VMWare Fusion 4.1.1 (released Nov 23rd, 2011) almost immediately, thus effectively reverting the capability of virtualizing the Mac OS X client versions.
Fusion 4.1.1 Update Bars Client Installations Again
That means: if you are running VMWare Fusion 4.1, you should consider not to upgrade to 4.1.1. If you have a Mac OS X client version virtualized it would not boot anymore after the update to Fusion 4.1.1. For all the others, VMWare does not distribute version 4.1 anymore, only 4.1.1. So you would have to search the net for download possibilities of VMWare Fusion 4.1.
Luckily there are still legal sources for the 4.1 download. Update: the download link distributes version 3.1.1 (sic!) at the moment. You’re on your own finding the 4.1 download on the net (filename: “VMware-Fusion-4.1.0-529802-light.dmg”). Good luck.

This time we’re gonna install Leopard from a .dmg image instead from DVD. The purpose is having a repair and recovery system by the hand in case you need it. My story is this: after having had a clean install of Leopard finished and having had applied all the updates, my MBP simply crashed again and again (two mouse pointers error – I found a solution in the meantime: that bug belongs to the Leopard Graphics Update – read it here howto fix it), since at that point I could not fix it, I then decided to reinstall. Something seemed fishy and would hopefully be gone after another fresh install. But as you expect: the same problem occurred again. I then decided to restore my previous tiger install and installed the Leopard DVD to a second partition. This way nothing can stop me, whereever I am, whatever does not work…
Ok what to do now?
Now, let the game begin…
Mac OS X Install DVD(highlight it) and choose
Readas type of image and name it
Mac OS X Install DVD(see picture)
sudo diskutil resizeVolume disk0s2 139G "HFS+" "LeoInst" 10G
LeoInst(disk0s1 is in this case the EFI partition – see here, what makes the EFI partition so interesting, system partition starts at disk0s2 – that’s the partition we’re gonna resize and split into disk0s2 and disk0s3)
Mac OS X Install DVD.dmgimage (should be located on the desktop!)
Mac OS X Install DVD(which is in fact now a partition) as start volume
These instructions are intended to be applied to genuine Apple systems rather than HackMacs. In my case I used my MacBook Pro. Because of the different .kexts to be applied to HackMacs this guide will not work for those systems! Be warned!
