Perhaps that new RAM is faulty. Even though the RAM passes the power-on self test (POST) It could still be the root cause of the Kernel Panics. Have you tried taking it out?

I can switch between windows of the same program by dragging four fingers left or right across the trackpad. This is analogous to pressing [Command] + [~] when the windows are not in fullscreen. You can find this setting under System Preferences>Trackpad>More Gestures.

I think rdesktop is the only workaround. You need to switch to the "other" Microsoft RDP client application, identically named however it has a different icon (Incorrect one is v8.0.18, correct is one is v2.1.1. Typical dogs breakfast approach from Microsoft). It can only ever have one instance, and one connection which is just retarded. Also Cord ...

Ok, the solution was ridiculous... Really. My MacMini got any signals from infrared like maybe only the light or any remote control or whatever in room. It works normal when I put anything on the infrared-receiver on my MacMini. The signal was like an option-keypress (menu on remote control) Hope that helps people in future

If there are hard limits, sorry, I don't know what they are however I have many exclusions set for Time Machine and one in particular has 294,691 files in it. So instead of doing it folder by folder try setting the exclusion from Options... in Time Machine under System Preferences. Plug in the external drive and then either drag and drop the parent folder ...

I'm reloading the OS on a MacBookPro3,1, and was having the same issue. I inserted a cable into the FireWire 400 port and wiggled the cable (gently) and the problem went away, so it seems like it was just some junk built up on the connector...

Apple devices do captive portal detection upon joining a wireless network to see if the user is behind a captive portal by attempting to load http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html. It is no longer the right case. The url now begins with captive.apple.com, followed by unique generated path. The problem is that we are properly redirecting ...

I've created a node module for this that supports setting the brightness using the CLI. See https://github.com/kevva/brightness-cli. npm install --global brightness-cli And then simply just run brightness from your command line.

You said that you have run Lion on this machine. If you login with the same Apple ID in Appstore there should be a downloadable Lion in the Purchases tab.

You can purchase the retail packaged Snow Leopard DVD and then the downloadable Lion from the Apple store for US$19.99 each. You will need to install Snow Leopard first from disc, update to 10.6.8, then download and install Lion. There is no Lion install DVD available from Apple.

If you don't have your original OS X 10.4 "Tiger" install media, you'll have to obtain a retail version of any system up to 10.7.5.; 10.8 "Mountain Lion" 10.9 "Mavericks" and 10.10 "Yosemite" require a 2007 or newer iMac to be installed. I've found a couple of supposedly original retail installation media for 10.7 searching on eBay for $35-$40 (1), (2); ...

You need to give permission to the path. run this in command line and you will be fine to go. It worked for me: sudo chown -R $USER /usr/local

First, as an FYI, you only need to boot into the recovery partition to repair permissions when you are trying to repair permissions on your computer's boot drive. To do it for any other drive, simple select it in Disk Utility and click the Repair Disk Permissions button. This may solve your problem, so try that first. After that, the simplest solution is to ...

I’ve got it. I think. Took me a long time but I think I have worked out what’s happening. Hopefully this might be helpful to someone else. First of all I noticed locking the file in the Finder seemed to stop Preview remembering a different page. So if I opened the PDF on page 1 and then scrolled to page 10 it wouldn’t remember the PDF was on page 10 anymore ...

Using filemon from the book "Mac OS X Internals - To The Apple's Core" it appears the only Preview related file that's modified if all I do is open, e.g. a .pdf document in Preview and close it to a different page is the com.apple.Preview.ViewState.plist file located at: /Users/$USER/Library/Containers/com.apple.Preview/Data/Library/Preferences/ The file ...
