Thank you as well Athos. :) My curiosity/concern is that recently I notice my modem traffic lites blinking when I
have no apps at all open. I don't have any of the sys prefs set for auto update. Well, just
one - date & time to set automatically. But to me it seems like more activity than to just
check and compare clocks. I've already scanned for malware & viri and came up clean, so
I'm just curious more than anything else.

uhh, if netowrk blinks a lot, run "netstat". There's also a GUI frontend for it
in Network Utility iirc. That'lll tell you what connections are in/out of your
machine, and should lookup domainnames.

And yeah, "top -o cpu" is what I usually like to run to see what my apps are
doing; but "ps aux" is probably like what you're looking for.

tcpdump will show you all the traffic too, you'll need to run it as root.

Heard that 10.4.5 is out.

Does anyone know what changese in Samba have been made/added since 10.3? I have someone running OS X Server 10.3, and their network connectivity with Windows machines have become very errattic of late. I know in the past there's been a cat-and-mouse mentaility between Microsoft and the Samba team, and I'm wondering if it'll be worth it to have them spend the money on upgradeing to 10.4 Server.

netstat -p will also show the processes that are using the respective ports, at least on Linux.

netstat -s
on Mac, I think, does the same thing you're talking about .

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

10.3 to 10.4? Presumably upgrading from Samba 2 to Samba 3.

OS X Samba is basically vanilla Samba with a functional GUI bolted on depending weather you are using Client or Server. 

My G3 here has Samba 3.0.14a compiled from scratch operating as a domain server on 10.4.2 client, works fine, but Samba on my PowerBook 12" doesn't like talking to it, so I use A.F.P there.  

 Doesn't netstat -p on Linux show the attached processes of sockets? Sorry, not on OS X I'm afraid

That's what I was thinking, Matt - but I'm just not able to find the documentation for it.

I thought about doing a manual install of the current version of Samba and using WebMin and Swat to administer it (it's what I do at home with my 10.4 client acting as a server), but I have a problem turning what's the most important machine in a very large client's office into a sandbox - it would be safer, and probably ultimately cheaper (in that I'm paid by the hour) to have them do a regular update to 10.4 server.

But before I make either of those choices, I really want to look at the Samba changelog and see if I can spot if any of the updates will be helpful for these guys.

Great. iCal really likes to throw away any good metadata (excluding X-fields) that comes in an iCal file. It basically treats the files data as if you entered in everything again manually :(

RFC 2445 X-field misuse here I come.. I'm gonna have real fun coming up with a conflict resolution mechanism for citasync (see my post in cit support).

 

RFC 2445 was co authored by a guy at M$. Funny that.

Preserving X-fields seems like a generally good idea all around. Kind of odd that iCal doesn't do it.

Subject: Citadel OS X binaries

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Hi all,

 

I recall some people here asking for someone to come out with binaries for the Citadel text client some time ago, we'll, i've built SVN for y'all. This is simply a tarball of what ./configure --prefix=/sss && make install does, so it does have the server, but you probably wouldn't be able to use it without a matching berkeley DB.

http://bionicmessage.net/citadel-osx.tar.bz2

 Naturally please don't yell about bugs about this tarball in the Citadel Support room, I am to blame for everything to do with this tarball but would appreciate it if you avoid using weapons to resolve any bugs that may be present.
 

I haven't tested these on any other system than my own OS X box (B&W G3 450)*, and they most likely won't run on anything below 10.4.2. I've disabled ncurses, openssl and libical to make sure my am-I-using-DarwinPorts-or-fink-or-gentooOSX-oh-wait-i'm-using-all-of-them-environment doesn't cause too much strife.

 

If they are problematic i'll take them down, maybe I should lobby for a divorce of the text client from the main sources tarball so those purely interested in the client don't need berkeley DB.

Use Boot Camp at your own risk; you might not be able to return to OS X.

Yep, the article points that out. "That's life on the bleeding edge," said one Mac user in the article.

Some folks managed to get back to OS X using some command line tools.


Still, I kind of find the whole thing amusing. "Once you go Windows, you never go back." Heh heh heh...

I'm well down that path unfortunately.

Yeah.. why, or why didn't I get hired by, say, Red Hat instead of Seagate Software, when I was looking for work as a programmer? I'd be working on Linux today if that had happened, instead of all this Windows shit.

Usually you gotta go with whoever is hiring regardless. Gotta eat, ya know.
