Is there something special about mount that won't let non-root run
it?

By default, yes. Mount is normally a privileged operation. However, in some unices (definitely linux, maybe mac as well) there is an option called "user" in fstab which tells it to allow ordinary users to perform the mount.

So, has anyone pulled the trigger yet on a new Intel-based Mac?

No, but I will when the tower comes out.

The reviews all seem pretty much the same. Very fast running Universal binaries (although the speed claims are exagerated), pretty darn good when running through Rosetta.

Not yet, but I will if the new Mac Mini has PVR features. My Dual G5 isn't that old so I probably won't wait for the tower version. Besides the way things are looking, the Mini may perform decently vs my non-Dual Core G5. I just want to be a bit more future-proof.

After going back and forth a bit, I've pretty much decided to get a fully-loaded Intel-based 20" iMac. (256MB vram, 500GB SATA drive, 2GB ram) Will likely order at the end of the month.

Sounds like a hot little machine. What CPU speed?

And which CPU??

2.0GHz Intel Core Duo. :)

I wonder how that Intel chip compares to any AMD offers?

hrmmmmm.

/me starts thinking
...Could you pop out the intel chip and drop in an AMD?

As far as I know of, there are no pin-for-pin compatible AMD to Intel CPU chips.

You could interchange them back in the "Socket 7" days. That's when Intel started with those stupid slotted processor designs. They found a way to put patented technology into the slot so that AMD couldn't build a compatible processor.

Intel thought that this would keep AMD out of the game, but they underestimated how much computer makers wanted to keep using AMD chips, because the motherboard makers happily began manufacturing AMD-specific motherboards.

Karma then came around and smacked Intel in the face, when the Itanium completely flopped, and they were forced to license AMD's 64-bit instruction set just to stay in the game.

I love a happy ending. :)

And now AMD has shipped 52% of the desktop PC's for 2005. :-)

which is probably why apple is with intel, intel saw a market AMd couldn't have.

Hi gang, If this is a stupid question then please pardon me and and allow me to ask it anyway... I want to use the terminal to display a list of all apps/programs that are running, even in the background. What is the best or proper command line? lsof? I want to know what, if anything, might be running in the background when I have all my apps closed. ( other than the expected sys files of course ) Many thanks in advance!

2Dog - on linux or a mac I'd use 'ps aux' .

It doesn't show all of them, but I rather like top.
