This is more of a comment adding data, but I'm not yet permitted to comment, so this will have to do: I'm seeing this several times a day since getting my imac back from the shop with a new hard disk and Lion install, followed by a time machine restore. I also upgraded the machine to 32G of ram after it came back. When it occurs, the kernel_task in top ...

I was experiencing a similar problem where my .htaccess file was being completely ignored while in a subfolder inside my ~/Sites directory under a VirtualHost that was setup correctly. Having spent the last hour playing around with different configuration files and setting AllowOverride All in various places, I finally found out that the .htaccess file, ...

You probably have moved on from this in the past three years; but for posterity, here is another possible solution. Check the directory server status in the 10.7 machine's Accounts preference pane. It may be red, since you reset everything on the server when going back to 10.6. If so, just remove it and add it back again and the login problem should go away. ...

I apologize if I've misunderstood or perhaps not followed your guidelines with respect to providing an answer so if I get booted out I understand, however I believe information I obtained from your forum brought my iMac back from the brink and wanted to express my appreciation about what I've learned here. In short, my 2011 27" iMac running 10.7 lost its ...

Yes, you can update to 10.7.5 - I'm running it on my older (2006) white MacBook. You will have to purchase it through Apple for $20 here.

Thanks! My problem was slightly different: Double-tap to open a file/folder using the trackpad on my laptop no longer worked after I upgraded to Yosemite and after checking the "dragging" option, it started to work again! No idea why but I'm just glad it's fixed. Thanks!!

I had same problem. This helped me to fix issue: Remove hidden dropbox folder '.dropbox' in user's root folder (Users/YourUsername/.dropbox) You can do it by running this command in terminal: sudo rm -r .dropbox Then simply erase everything what is left in Applications folder and make a fresh install. I found this solution here: ...

I have an early 2011 Macbook Pro 13", which I first replaced the hard drive (totally blank and repartitioned), then installed Mountain Lion, then upgraded to Mavericks. There appear to be two parts to the problem: 1) Swapping out a raw hard drive causes the loss of a hidden diagnostics/recovery partition (that I never bothered to look for, and which ...

If your onboard recovery partition is not working you can easily reinstall it by simply downloading and running this app from Apple. http://support.apple.com/kb/dl1464

Same deal - I had the same issue then resolved by creating a new message, closing the message out, then saving it as a Draft. Magically my draft folder appeared. Problem solved. Not a great user experience though!

I have done this myself with no issues whatsoever, however my only difference is I formatted the drives using Mac, now this might be speculation and I don't Know how much time you have but if you're able to reformat the drive using Mac

I haven't tried this myself as I haven't had this similar problem, but I read that it is the cluster size that you select during formatting which is the issue. If you plan to use with Mac, format the drive using a cluster size not more than 1024. The problems I have are kind of different with exFat and mostly when the drive is not ejected properly under ...

What ended up solving my problem is simply not using Terminal and switching to iTerm. It has everything Terminal has except the bugs and the latest update ironed out some annoyances with Yosemite. As of yet I have seen no reason to choose Terminal over iTerm.

No, your MacBook model cannot be upgraded to a version later than Mac OS X 10.6.8 because of restrictions imposed by Apple. It is highly likely that even if you could install a later version, your system would run unstable and/or slow. Regarding upgrading your hardware, yes, it's possible, but I'd say you'll have a hard time finding parts (other than RAM, ...

The App Store saves its files to a temporary folder until it is completely downloaded. This temporary download location is different for each user of the Mac. So, it's possible (likely) that you could have two partially downloaded copies of the same application. For Yosemite, and its multi-gb package size, this is not trivial. You can see if the file is ...

Only one solution I could find, block all spotlight web access using little snitch. I guess this is up there with iCloud helping itself to your personal files.

You might want to check the batteries again. I had the exact same issue with fairly new batteries that looked like Duracell but not Duracell. After trying a few recipes from Google search and calling Apple support to no avail, I thought I'd resort to the final technique of shaking and knocking the trackpad. That's when I heard a rattling noise inside the ...

mDNSResponder was replaced by DiscoveryUtil in Yosemite. So Bonjour is still enabled. According to this Apple-kb article you might have to download updated printer drivers from Apple or the original manufacturer or re-add your printer with a different set up. If you still have problems discovering your printer an Apple-discussion-thread might help: unblock ...

The best way I've found is to install MySQL with Homebrew, not from the .dmg available from the MySQL or Oracle. If you have Homebrew installed, simply run the following command in Terminal. brew install mysql Then to have MySQL start automatically, run the following: brew services start mysql

Yet another tool suggestion: ShiftIt. Free, actively under development, completely open source, lightweight, very easy to use, and keeps a low profile in the top menu bar.

A new option is VPN Monitor available on the AppStore. It allows for more customization, like auto-login, cycling through VPN connections, etc. At least OS X 10.9 Mavericks required.
