    Solution for AFP/TimeMachine to Linux-NAS broken in Lion

    It seems the update to Lion breaks AFP connections to Linux-based NAS boxes. This affects those backing up to a NAS-served TimeMachine volume ! Apparently, all that's needed for Lion to be able to connect to a netatalk daemon on Linux is enabling DHX2 UAM in afpd. Full details in...

    I've been researching the performance issues on AFP and SMB some of you were reporting... Well, it seems you are not alone, and this is not a hackintosh nor a 0.0.67 related issue... Several Apple users have been experiencing this. I found some pointers which might be of interest to you (some...

    Do you use MacPorts or FinkProject ?

    Being a long-time Debian Linux user, I rely on Open-Source software on a daily basis. I currently use MacPorts (both CLI and via Porticus), but tried the Fink Project too in the past. What do you use ? Please vote and comment.

    Orange HDD icons and IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector...

    I read some posts about having some adverse effects with IOAHCIBlockStorageInjector... Can anyone confirm this ? Anyway, in my quest for "vanillaness" (I rather have one-less-kext, even if it's just a plist, with no custom driver behind), I came up with this method. Two alternatives are...

    [HOWTO] Improve I/O performance & prolong SSD life

    As most Unix-based file-systems, HFS+ also updates the 'access time' upon reading files (don't confuse this with change/modification time). Just browsing a directory will cause these accesses (e.g for previewing the file), leading to lots of unnecessary disk writes... And think of Time...

    Beachball smilie in Firefox

    Tony, I just noticed Firefox hogging the CPU of my MBP C2D@2.5GHz+4GB RAM... 20% CPU when posting a reply... At the same time I noticed the smilies really crawl... Closed Firefox, opened just images/smilies/beachball.gif in a fresh window, and it even got to 26% CPU... :wtf: Tried on Safari...

    Separate partition for /Users

    I'm planning moving my /Users to a separate partition... To me (being a Unix guy), the most natural way to do it would be add it to fstab. However, I found /etc/fstab.hd with these contents: IGNORE THIS FILE. This file does nothing, contains no useful data, and might go away in future...

    I'm trying to monitor my CPU temps... Installed both iStat Menus (+ the Intel sensors), and Temperature Monitor... Tried also smcfancontrol, but it crashes immediately (I guess it doesn't like fakesmc...) However, I'm getting different readings :o :wtf: Ambient: 27C Idle: istat reads...
