Nothing would happen, because they would not work (kernel modules). MacOS and Linux have 2 completly different kernels. It's like trying to put engine from one car brand to another: it will not work because all the connections/specifications are totally different. Besides, there is no lsmod/insmod/modbrobe/rmmod commands in Mac OS X... Now, if you try ...

What would happen if I were to force the Intel drivers for the Linux kernel into Mac OS X? Would it work? Would there be severe instability or data loss? Is it even possible? At best? 100% nothing. At worst? Crash your whole system and make it unusable or even unbootable. While Mac OS X and Linux are both different “flavors” of Unix, you can’t just ...

It uses Quartz. But that's a bit of a marketing term in so much as there is not one single thing called Quartz, but a group of things that work together to make the system called Quartz. Specifially, Quartz encompasses the set of systems needed to do rendering (Quartz 2D), font management, graphics card interaction (Quartz Compositor), OpenGL support, 3D ...

No, it's not possible, any more than you can run any other Linux binaries in OS X (without using a virtual machine).

There are 87 valid users. 83 from OS X 10.10.1 (Build 14B25) and 4 from Server 4.0.3 (Build 14S350). You can see them from terminal with the command: dscl . -list /Users The list is as follows: _amavisd _appleevents _appowner _appserver _ard _assetcache _astris _atsserver _avbdeviced _calendar _ces _clamav _coreaudiod _coremediaiod _cvmsroot _cvs _cyrus ...

As already posted: it is not possible. First of all, there is no such thing as 'force install'. There is nothing to install, and even if there was something to install there is no 'forcing' it. Installation can have different meanings but these two are the ones relevant to your question: Installation meaning installing a Mac OS X package using OS X's ...

Dreamweaver CC came in two major versions: the initial CC release (v13) and the CC 2014 release (v14). From the file names, you can infer which is which. As for a "full installer", there is no such animal now. You install CC apps individually through the Creative Cloud Manager which downloads and installs the selected app(s).

Just to let you know, I solved the problem by reinstalling the operating system. This can't be done directly from the app store (because it was not working) Instead restart the mac and when the grey screen comes press Cmd + R; then connect to the internet and reinstall it. I did a backup of my data beforehand but fortunately I didn't need it as all my ...

To have the previous behaviour use Option+Click. Actually, pressing Option+Click on different things opens a whole lot of new possibilities.

Yes, like Mateusz said, these look very much like file icons on a desktop. If you want them displayed like that, right-click your desktop (two-finger-tap), and click on "Show View Options". That gived you a dialog that lets you adjust, how icons are displayed on your desktop. Try the settings from the following screenshot and play around with grid spacing, ...

The reason for your panic is right near the top: panic(cpu 6 caller 0xffffff8009179085): "zalloc: zone map exhausted while allocating from zone kalloc.4096, likely due to memory leak in zone kalloc.64 (1358808192 total bytes, 21231365 elements allocated)"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-2782.1.97/osfmk/kern/zalloc.c:2521 Something is completely depleting ...

This is Finder, it ships with every Mac.

I know you said free.. but The Archive Browser is great and will allow you to preview the items before extracting. In my opinion, this is worth the $3.99.

You could use a third party app and define a key combination. I personally use Moom (I am not affiliated with it) and defined cmd+shift+Z Or you can hover with the mouse on the green button and after a short delay choose the windows layout: There are other tools (DoublePane, divvy or Slate) but I never tried them.

The number refers to the version number of Dreamweaver. For a changelog, see: http://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/whats-new.html

It's possible that the Reset Home Directory Permissions and ACLs option in the resetpassword tool will correct those permissions for you, though I'm unsure how 'deep' into your home directory it will reset. This blog post gives the steps for Lion, which appear to be the same in Yosemite (Note: that last link details instructions for resetting a password, ...

While trialling Yosemite here at school I found the overall experience can vary wildly depending on how the installation is performed. Most people will perform an upgrade installation by downloading the Yosemite installer and simply letting it run. The end result here is very variable and largely depends on the state of the system being upgraded. One or two ...

No, it is not dangerous. Pretty much every single task is queued and persisted if needed. Unless you have a foreground task that has a nice "x" button to stop it, you can reboot, shut down, sleep etc. with no trouble at all. System tasks in OS X are designed to be fully automatic, autonomous and out of the way for the user. When it is complete you might get ...

I have two entries too, but they are not old and new. One is Twitter App, the other is system "build-in", this Twitter account for share(for example, click share button on Safari you can see it) and many other things. You can check, "System Preferences"->"internet account".

Look into IFTTT, specifically the weather recipes, this isn't something the iPhone can do out-of-the-box. Jailbroken, i'm sure, but unless a developer specifically creates an app for you, this isn't something the iPhone has implemented into it's core services. [That's why the App Store Universe is so relevant and massive]. In regards to you turning an alarm ...

To use sparsebundles and Time Machine backups, a NAS must support AFP and one must mount the share using the AFP protocol. AFP supports metadata transport that is not carried via SMB shares. CIF/SMB should be used with Windows-based systems. AFP should be used with Apple systems whenever possible. While you might be able to create a sparsebundle and use it ...

In my opinion, Time Machine is the best solution. If you do a full restore from backup, all your configurations are retained. You'll need to enable FileVault after the restore is finished. If you do a nuke-n-pave and a pristine install, migrating profile data, apps and settings invariably misses some stuff, e.g., VPN configurations, automatic wifi ...

Sometimes you might find a "Recovered Items" folder in the Trash. Don't worry, you can safely delete this folder.

It can be done by going to Finder preferences -> Sidebar and checking iCould Drive

Open Finder preferences and check it again like in the image below.

You can try nettop(1) in the Terminal. It is pre-installed, and refreshes every few seconds to provide a dashboard of all open network connections with their usage. Better than lsof since it shows the usage data too. $ nettop Then hit 'd' and look for odd-looking entries or entries with consistently large traffic in the 'bytes in' or 'bytes out' column. ...

I had the same problem. Fixed it by following the path to Python/frameworks. The folder in Versions was named 2.7. I changed the folder name to 2.6 and iPhoto opened right up.

I have found that Cmd+Control+A-Z are usually available for your custom global shortcuts. I too would like to be able to access a complete list, however, which is how I arrived to this page.

If you use MacVim, the easiest way is: set macmeta So that MacVim will treat alt/option as Meta key, you can then bind: nmap <C-M-S> :call foo_func() The keys pressed for above is: Ctrl+alt+s. Hope this helps and solves your issue, happy Vimming!

I don't know if this is a related cause and the potential fix but I was able to get the issue resolved for me. I use Homebrew Cask and I have it setup to symlink the applications from my Homebrew Cask directory into my /Applications/ folder (the default is ~/Applications). The solution for me was to remove all of the Symlinks (I just moved them to my ...
