OSX Tips and Tricks?



I'm looking at you Joe and you Reality

Only took 8 hours but I got it to work on my Dell Dimension 8250 ftw.

Good work dude! That's fricken awesome. So how did everything go? Do you have any other OSes dual booting? I'll be doing this in the future but I'm having a hard time getting a download speed above 3 kb here on campus, so I'll be waiting for awhile (or until I can get home for a weekend to download.)

I know tons of tips and tricks. ;)

For IRC Chatting use Colloquy.
If you use Trillian for Windows then get AduimX for Mac.
If you have a multi-button mouse then set the one of the buttons (center click wheel for example) to use Expos?. You'll love it.

Once your all set up let me know and I'll give you other nice Mac freebies.

Oh, as be prepared to change the sound effects in adium as soon as you download it. The default noises are ICQ levels of annoying.

Man they are. Greatest thing about Aduim though is that almost everything is customizable. I have Nintendo DS pico chat sounds for mine. And a MSN icon for my doc.

I'm a wee bit sad....

After a few hours it appears that my audio card a Dell OEM soundblaster won't work for OSX right now. Besides that I also have a Nvidia card and Zero hardware acceleration options, so it's back to XP for me after a long day of experimenting with OSX.



With my special modified XP install though, this really doesn't matter though

Yeh having OS X on a pc is more of a "look what I can do" You need fairly specific hardware to make it functional.

Actaully that use to be required when using os x86. The hardware compatibility has really improved.

Heres a compatibility list http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCL_10.4.7

To anyone thinking of trying this out, make sure to check this list to save you a big headache.
