  • 2. Help me find OS X compatible audio adapter
    Dear group, I own a "Hercules Gamesurround Muse 5.1 DVD" speaker system which I would like to connect to my Mac Pro. The speaker system has three 1/8" line audio input connectors (and the Mac Pro only has one line output or an optical output). Could the C-Media CMI8738 soundcard provided with the speaker system work in OS X? Knowing that it works in FreeBSD, could I borrow some code to try to make it work? Otherwise, do you know any good 5.1 analog soundcard that would work in OS X? Thank you, Max
  • 3. HELP! - Spotlight doesn't find file using "name contains"
    In the era pre-Spotlight, I used the Finder's Find File utility for housekeeping. I generally name files by date so a search using a full or partial text string would locate all files referencing a specific date. I also searched for files using the "last modified" criteria to find files changed on a specific date. Now under Spotlight, the "name" search criteria produce results that are woefully incomplete. For instance, a recent search for files with name containing "060602" produced only one result via Spotlight whereas Easyfind found 14 files. In Spotlight, I set the criteria using both the blue-spot menu field and the "command-F" approach. In case the indexes were incomplete, I re-indexed the target drives with no change in results. I then removed the Spotlight indexes completely and restarted the Finder to reset the indexes - again no change in results. At this point, I have given up on Spotlight since it can't find the desired files. I wish Apple offered the Find File utility as an alternative to Spotlight. I currently use Easyfind which works great for the name search; however, I need a way to search by "date last modified". Any suggestions?

  • 5. Intel iMac Sleeps When it Shouldn't; Security Question
    1. My new 24" iMac sleeps after perhaps 15 minutes of inactivity even though it is set to never sleep. Advice? 2. A friend /finally/ moved from OS 8 to a new Mac. I was showing him (on my iMac) how to set up additional user accounts. In the process we set up a /standard/ account in his name. To my surprise, when he logged in he could see and use documents in my home folder. He had access to /all/ System Preferences and could install software. What gives?

iMac OSX 10.1.5 cant resolve host names but can see IP addresses

Postby martin_folb » Sun, 07 Nov 2004 02:34:05 GMT

I recently installed Palm desktop on my iMac and since then I cant
resolve host names. I have DSL and have the correct DNS settings I
think. I can ping IP addresses but not host names? How do I resolve
this? Any ideas how I can diagnose the problem.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,

start by looking at /etc/resolv.conf
It should have your DNS name server IP addresses in it.
If it does not, then try going to the Network System Preferences, and 
switch your network to a different location (assuming you have more than 
one location), and back again.  This generally reloads the resolv.conf 

And finally consider that maybe the DNS addresses are not responding.  
It has happened, but most ISPs really hate that, and generally resolve 
it fairly quickly.

1.Can't resove IP address to host name

I use FSGetVolumeInfo(), and others, to get a list of mounted volumes.
Work fine, I have the following info for a volume mounted as
"afp://file01", volume "Temp":
VolName = Temp
ServerName =
ServerAdr = -102
ServerRoot = /Volumes/Temp
FullPath	= /Volumes/Temp/Data/t.txt

The problem is that I cannot find anywhere the mounted volume name
(file01), I get only the IP address. No problem, said I to myself, I
will just use AddressToName() to get the name....urk!... does'nt throw an exception and to nothing.

I try to use "host" and "dig" on the unix shell, but they wont give me
the hostname either (usenet posts talk about "forwarding",
"authoring", "delegation"...I'm lost).

So is this supposed to work, or is there another way to get the host
name from its IP address?

Here the code sample i use (in a thread):

	UInt32 	Adr;
	LStr255	name1("");
	LStr255	name2("void");
	Adr = 0;
	LOpenTptInetMapper openTpt;

		Adr = openTpt.NameToAddress(name1);  // has to be run in a thread
	} catch(...) 
		Adr = 999;
 // this seems to works Adr=3232235787
		openTpt.AddressToName(Adr, name2);
	} catch(...) 
		name2 = "\pNo Name";
// dont work


2.Resolve MAC address to IP address

I need to resolve a MAC address to an IP address.  I 
thought this could be done with the ARP command but was 
unsuccessful in my attempts.  Anyone have any ideas?  

3.Using logical name on the LAN instead of IP address (OSX Leopard)

4.can't resolve host name

    I can't resolve LAN computer names from my imac

    * imac G5 running Tiger with all updates
    * imac is on a LAN with a linksys wrt54G router
    * win2k machine on same LAN
    * Linksys router performs dhcp services

    * my win2k machine uses a setting, "use NetBIOS setting from DHCP
      to enable me to resolve host names (as I can demonstrate with
Ping hostname)

     What settings do i make on the imac running Tiger to achieve the
same goal (host name resolution)

Thank you !!!!
