I was able to get 10.4 on a new 10.5 osx intel macbook. Below is how I got it working:

1.) You need access to a intel IMac or Mac Mini

2.) You need a usb flash drive

3.) connect the usb Flash drive to the IMac or Mac Mini

4.) Go to Utilites -> Disk Utility

5.) Click on the Removable disk then on the Restore Tab

6.) Drag your IMac or Mac Mini Disk Drive in the left hand column over to the source.

7.) Drag your usb flash drive to the destination.

8.) Check Erase Destination and then click on Restore button.

9.) After this completes, take your usb drive over to your new macbook.

10.) take out the battery and remove the screws so that you can take the harddrive out.

11.) plug in your usb drive and power up your new macbook.

12.) It will then boot into 10.4, once it boots up you will want to go to system preferences and click on startup disk. Change your startup disk to the usb flash drive and restart your macbook.

13.) before you restart your macbook while it is still powered up plug your hardddrive back in.

14.) Once your computer starts up do steps 4-8 again but make your source the usb drive and your destination your new macbook harddrive.

15.) When this completes you should be able to go to system preference -> startup disk and change your startup disk to your new macbook harddrive.

16.) Restart

1. Generate your public/private keys using ssh-keygen.  Don’t enter a passphrase and just hit enter for the defaults on the rest of the questions asked.

ssh-keygen -t rsa

2. Now copy the id_rsa.pub to the .ssh directory of the remote host you want to logon to as authorized_keys2 .

LINUX:

scp /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa.pubroot@crazyedy.com:/home/username/.ssh/authorized_keys2

MAC:

scp /Users/username/.ssh/id_rsa.pubroot@crazyedy.com:/Users/username/.ssh/authorized_keys2

3. You should now be able to type the following command to get into the box without using a password:

ssh root@crazyedy.com

  1. 4. Now type the following command into the terminal:

ssh -D 2020 -fN username@crazyedy.com

This will setup the ssh tunnel.

  1. 5. Now you have to setup your browser, say “Firefox” to route all traffic including dns traffic through your new ssh tunnel you just setup.  Open up Firefox and go to preferences -> Advanced -> Network and then click the “Settings” tab like the following example:
  1. 6. You should then be able to go to the following address:

http://www.noreply.org

and it should show you the ip address from which you are coming from, which should be your new ssh tunnel ip address.

1.)  Select cmd prompt “run as Administrator”

2.)  Type: ‘net user administrator /active:yes

3.)  Press Return

***NOTE***

To disable type: ‘net user administrator /active:no’

Jul 01








Run the following commands from a command Terminal:

Don’t actually copy and paste the command below because the characters will mess up.  Just type it like you see it and it will work fine.

defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add ‘{ “tile-type” = “spacer-tile”; }’

killall Dock

When the Dock restarts, you should see a blank space after the last application that is in the Dock.

You can now drag the spaces to where you want them, or right-click them and select

“Remove from Dock” if you want to get rid of them.

You can do run the “defaults” command several time before restarting the Dock in order to create multiple spaces at once.

There are a lot of people out there that want to have their Linux box automatically login for them after a reboot. As always there is more than one way to do this. You first have to decide what method you prefer to use. You can setup a user to automatically login and you can also setup a user to login using a timed login. I will show you how to do both.

AUTOMATICALLY LOGIN:

In order to setup your Linux box to automatically login using a particular user, you will need to follow the steps below.
For most newer versions of Red Hat (Red Hat 5/6), Fedora Core (Fedora Core 13/14), Ubuntu (10.04/10.10) you need to edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf using terminal and add the following to the [daemon]:

[daemon]

AutomaticLoginEnable=true

AutomaticLogin=username   ###NOTE:  Where username is your username you use to login to the linux box. ###

TIMED LOGIN:

In order to setup your Linux box to login using a particular user and a timed login, you will need to follow the steps below.
For most newer versions of Red Hat (Red Hat 5/6), Fedora Core (Fedora Core 13/14), Ubuntu (10.04/10.10) you need to edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf using terminal and add the following to the [daemon]:

[daemon]

TimedLoginEnable=true

TimedLogin=username   ###NOTE:  Where username is your username you use to login to the linux box. ###

The methods above currently work for most newer versions of Linux and Gnome. However, occasionally you will run into some older versions of Linux and Gnome. If the methods above do not work for your particular Linux distro and Gnome, you can try the steps below:

In order to setup your Linux box to login using a particular user and a timed login, you will need to follow the steps below.
You need to edit /usr/share/gdm/defaults.conf using terminal and add the following to the [daemon]:

[daemon]

TimedLoginEnable=true

TimedLogin=username   ###NOTE:  Where username is your username you use to login to the linux box. ###

If you are using Novell’s Suse 10 or Suse 11, you will need to do the following to get automatic logins working:

From a terminal, run the following command: su -c ‘/bin/bash /sbin/yast2 users’

This will open up the “User and Group Administration” Window. From there, click the drop down menu on the “Expert” middle button. Then select “Login Settings“, this will bring up the “Display Manager Login Settings” Window. Now, you can select “Auto Login” and click the drop down to select the user you want to login automatically.

That’s it. You should now be able to have your linux users login automatically.

1.) Start by getting on the screen of your IPhone what you want to take a screenshot of. This can be any of your applications or a website your viewing using Safari.

2.) Once you have the screen you want to capture, hold down the IPhone home button. While you continue to hold down the home button, press the on/off button on the top right of the IPhone. You will hear a sound and the screen will flash while the screenshot is being taken.

3.) To view your new screenshot that you just took, open the Photo Album application on your IPhone and then go to the Camera Roll.

4.) In order to get your screenshot off of your IPhone, you will need to sync your IPhone with the photo application of your choice that syncs with your IPhone or if you are a Mac user you can sync your IPhone with IPhoto.

LINUX & MAC

1.)  Make sure that Kerberos is installed on your linux distribution

2.)  Add the following to your /etc/krb5.conf file:

a.) [libdefaults]

default_realm = EXAMPLE.COM

rdns = no

[realms]

EXAMPLE.COM = {

kdc = example.com:88

admin-server = example.com

default_domain = example.com

}

[domain_realms]

.example.com = EXAMPLE.COM

2.)  run the following command “kinit domainUser”

ex.)  kinit jdoe

3.)  Put in the password when it prompts you.

5.)  run the following command “klist”  this shows your kerberos ticket.

If  you are using firefox for Single Sign On purposes then do the following:

6.)  Then open up firefox and go to about:config

7.)  then put in your site name for the following field “network.negotiate-auth.trusted-uris”

a.)https://example.com

8.)  Make sure that the following: network.negotiate-auth.using-native-gsslib is set to true.

9.)  Make sure that your dns is pointed to the correct server as well.

10.)  Make sure that you have added uppercase and lowercase entries to your /etc/hosts file for your kerberos server.

11.)  Now you should be able to open up your website and click to authenticate using  kerberos.

WINDOWS

If you are using Internet Explorer for Single Sign On purposes then do the following:

1.)  Join your computer to your kerberos Domain.

2.)  login to your pc using a kerberos domain user.

3.)  Setup the following for IE:

a.)  go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Click on the “Security” tab.

b.) Click on “Local Intranet” and then “Sites”

c.) Then Click on “Advanced”, Enter your site address here and click “Add”, then “Close”

4.)  Now you should be able to authenticate to your site using kerberos.

Step One
First things first, in order to build a multiboot linux box you have to start by picking the operating systems that you want to install. Listed below are the os’s that I picked:

1. ) Fedora 9
2. ) Fedora 10
3. ) CentOS 5
4. ) Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 11
5. ) Open Suse 11
6. ) Open Suse 10
7. ) Ubuntu 8.10
8. ) Ubuntu 9.04
9. ) Mandriva
10. ) Knoppix 5.1
11. ) Slackware
12. ) Gentoo 2008.0
13. ) Mepis

Step Two
After you have picked what operating systems you want to install you need to partition the hard drive. I used Ubuntu 9.04 Live cd’s Partition Editor to partition my box. Listed below is the disk layout that I used:

Also, every linux os installed will use the /dev/sda1 partition as the swap partition.

Hard Disk Partition Setup:

OS PartitionDevice

Swap /dev/sda1(hd0,0)

Primary Partition:
OS PartitionDevice
Suse Enterprise Linux Desktop 11/dev/sda3(hd0,2)

Primary Partition:
OS PartitionDevice
OpenSuse 10/dev/sda4(hd0,3)

Extended Partition:
/dev/sda2
OS Partition Device
OpenSuse 11 /dev/sda5 (hd0,4)
Knoppix 5 /dev/sda6 (hd0,5)
CentOS 5 /dev/sda7 (hd0,6)
Fedora 9 /dev/sda8 (hd0,7)
Ubuntu 9 /dev/sda9 (hd0,8)
Mandriva /dev/sda10 (hd0,9)
Slackware /dev/sda11 (hd0,10)
Ubuntu 8 /dev/sda12 (hd0,11)
Fedora 10 /dev/sda13 (hd0,12)
Mepis /dev/sda14 (hd0,13)
Gentoo /dev/sda15 (hd0,14)

Step Three

Choose your bootloader. A bootloader lets you load and run all of your different operating systems on your new multiboot box. This box is using Fedora 9′s GRUB Bootloader to load all of the Linux Distributions on the box. Listed below is the main partition of the grub bootloader:

/dev/sda8 (hd0,7)

Step Four

When Installing each OS make sure that the boot loader installs only on that OS’s Partition and not the Master Boot Record(MBR). Only install the boot loader that you want to use permanently on the MBR.

I Used Fedora Core 9′s Grub Bootloader to install on the MBR.

After you install each OS, you then need to boot up Fedora 9 and copy the following:
1.) New OS Drive’s /boot/(everything except grub)
2.) Open up /boot/grub/menu.lst and copy only the lines that pertain to the new os.

Ex.)
title Gentoo Linux 2.6.24-r5
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86-2.6.24-gentoo-r5 root=/dev/ram0 init=/linuxrc ramdisk=8192 real_root=/dev/sda3 udev
initrd /boot/initramfs-genkernel-x86-2.6.24-gentoo-r5

Once this has been done you should be able to restart the computer and boot up your new os.

####NOTE####
Do this one os at a time.
