TL;DR Reinstalling iTunes solved my variant of the issue because it recreated /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBEthernetHost.kext, which either iTunes or OSX Network prefpane deleted. Just experienced this on OSX Yosemite (10.10.4) after upgrading iTunes and resetting the network devices (esp. deleting an iPhone USB network device which seemed to have ...

There is no one universal installation DVD for OS X. Each DVD has files specific to that Mac model. For example, you cannot use DVD from "early 2011" Mac for "late 2011" Mac. That OS X is called "Maverics" but each Mavericks build can start only Macs that were made before that build was released. I found this accidentally while trying to restore my wife's ...

I upgraded several Macbooks with Samsung SSDs. But they were EVO 840. Here is what I noted for myself: SDD had to be plugged instead of the original HDD. Plugging in instead of DVD gives issues. The connector is very hard to plug and unplug to Samsung SSDs. It is much easier with Apple HDD. So you have to press firm to plug in the SSD. To unplug, gently ...

I needed something very similar (coordinates of bounding boxes around certain objects in image for computer vision research). I build a simple tool that runs in the browser: http://nicodjimenez.github.io/boxLabel/annotate.html

I would suggest the following: Because it might be hard to find the Lion Installer, consider anyway to upgrade to OS X Yosemite, which is a much faster and polished OS and since you are on Lion I don't see any reason to stay there. Download the Yosemite installer through AppStore. It's free. Purchase a flash drive 16GB or 32GB. Format it with GUID ...

Set up an alias: alias bigxter='xterm -font lucidasanstypewriter-bold-24' Then put that alias in your .bashrc, so that after you log in, you can type bigxter and your easily visible font xterm window will pop up! Maybe put one or two of those windows as default to logging in as well so you have enough windows to work in.

I had and now again the same problem but on a SAMSUNG Series 7 Gamer Notebook (AMD Radeon HD 6970M). It's because of the overheating: it's hardware. Go to an electronics shop and ask there, as it is because of your graphics card.

OSX 10.7 Lion was not sold on DVD, the first retail OSX version to do so. You can obtain it through three methods: Update your system to 10.6.8 (combo update is best via Apple, or Software Update if you like) and then, using the Mac App Store, purchase a copy of Lion Purchase Lion via the Apple Store website which will email you a download redemption code ...

I just had a user with a similar problem in Yosemite. She could read the original message, but once she moved into a new folder on the IMAP email server, she couldn't see anything other than the header info. Turns out the folder had a semi-colon in its name. Once I changed it to a dash, all the messages appeared correctly.
