Re: Best Windows on Mac Options

That's a good point about VirtualBox, which I find to be nice for free software but can be buggy and not very user-friendly. For what it's worth Apple is now warning Catalina users that kernel extensions will soon be disabled in the next version of macOS (this is the same message they gave 32bit app...

Re: My Garageband keeps crashing

I haven't heard any widespread reports of GarageBand issues on iOS. Are you working with a very large project imported from your desktop?

Re: Do I Need an Original Monitor For a Mac II?

I can tell you from memory those converters to use standard PC monitors are a nightmare to get working correctly. You'll save yourself a lot of grief by just finding a compatible Apple monitor from that era. I suggest first figuring out which video card is installed. There is the lower-end Macintosh...

Re: PowerBook 170 SoundApp Error-11

It’s possible that SoundApp simply relies on QuickTime (as most multimedia apps of that era do) and updating the extensions is what fixed it.

Re: PowerBook 170 SoundApp Error-11

I would first try narrowing down whether it's a heat/hardware issue, or a bug with SoundApp. I suggest opening one of these sound files in QuickTime player, setting it to loop, and let it run for a long time — long enough that you know would cause SoundApp to crash. If it keeps running fine, then yo...

Re: Alpha Editor 6.5 for 68k/PPC

Hey Dirk,
Just curious why such a specific request? What about 6.5 do you need that isn't in previous or later versions?

Re: location of preferences in shell filesystem - esp voiceover

Well for starters, it's not /Library (root folder) but rather ~/Library (your user folder)

So from terminal, type cd ~/Library/Preferences and in there you'll find com.apple.Accessibility.plist — is this not what you're looking for?

Re: Dual boot Mac OS 9

Just to be clear, there is no such thing as a PowerPC MacBook. These would be PowerBooks. After re-reading the OP's post several times, it sounds like he's saying he installed 9.2.1 or 9.2.2, but specifically needs 9.2(.0) for some reason. I'm not sure this is going to be possible, but you can downl...

Re: Dual boot Mac OS 9

It is not possible to dual boot any MacBook with Mac OS 9, this is only possible on earlier PowerBooks with PowerPC chips. Are you by chance using a PowerBook as opposed to a MacBook?

Re: mac pro to power 6 display long video?

ArraySync would do it, but it's a 32-bit app and will not run on macOS Catalina. I am working on a new 64-bit update, however I can only work on it in my spare time. I hope to have that out as soon as possible. I will be posting updates here and also on social media once we have the new version read...

Re: problems not working keyboard and mouse

There’s nothing in Mac OS that would cause that, so you’ve got a hardware problem going on somewhere. I’d suggest trying a different keyboard and mouse.

Re: problems not working keyboard and mouse

That's very unusual. Are these Apple brand keyboard and mouse, or a third party? When you say restarting gets it working again, do you mean you restart the keyboard and mouse or the computer?

Re: Bootcamp alternative?

Already downloaded the Windows 10 ISO and used Bootcamp to make it bootable but failed. I wouldn’t say it failed — it’s working exactly as expected. BootCamp’s sole purpose is to partition your startup disk and install Windows natively on your Mac with proprietary Apple drivers to support Apple har...

Re: Bootcamp alternative?

If you're trying to create Windows installation media for another PC, you can download a Windows 10 ISO directly from Microsoft and simply burn it using your DVD burner (if you have one).

Boot Camp requires a Windows partition on your Mac to work.
