Thanks for the info!
I just downloaded CCC 3 and the trial version? of SuperDuper so I'll have them around for the next time.
I also have Retrospect Enterprise edition but I don't remember if it clones or not. I'll look at them all later.
that comes with the comptuer.
I tried Disk Copy 1st. Couldn't get it to work. Believe me, I tried it several times booting from the CD.
I have no idea why it wouldn't work or what-the-feh I was doing wrong.........
But I've just checked out CCC and I like it. HAVEN'T used it yet, just fired it up to check it out.
Word in the blogosphere is that Java on 10.5 Leopard is rather broken.
It's day 4 now, and still going without any real hiccups.
Yup. JDK 1.6 did not ship, and apparently is no where to be found on ADC(!), and for some reason my Funambol admin utility is broken.
Apple decided to fuck with the network configuration tools, as a result 802.1X is broken for most users. Solution: bring back Tiger's Internet Connect.app!
Configuring bluetooth devices took me quite a bit of time, unlike before the bluetooth wizard doesn't auto generate bluetooth PINs in all cases
Is there a decent pinball simulator for OS X in general yet?
I downloaded the Emilla Pinball from sourceforge.net and, well, it's ok I suppose.....(kinda simplistic)
Not even nearly as good as Pro-Pinball for OS 9.
(note: this will be humdrum to the serious Apple techies out there, so please skip to the next post)
Well, that was rather painless...
Recap: I recently installed a new WD HD on this G4 and kept the original drive inside as well.
The original drive (also an WD) had the jumpers set to "neutral".
I wanted the newer larger HD to be my primary drive, so I set the jumpers on both to be "cable select". Nice enough.
Everything worked fine. Both drives showed up in system profiler and I could restart from either &tc, &tc, &tc.....
But there was some wiggy-ness. I can't quite put my finger on it but something subtle just didn't seem right.
Well anyways, I was short one mounting screw (thanks to the cat) and today I went out and got some.
Before I shut it down I decided to look at the Apple support page for this model and there it was right in front of my blind eyes.
Your Macintosh doesn't work with Ultra ATA devices set for cable select mode.
Oh!!! Ok! So I pulled the drives out and reset the jumpers for dev0(master) and dev1(slave) and that should do it. (and it did)
"But", I said (I sometimes talk to myself while drinking good beer), "what the fuzz; Let's check out that Carbon Copy Cloner."
I zeroed out the new HD a couple of times, restarted from the former and ran the CCC. I'm pleased. It does exactly what its
name implies. I still haven't tried the Super Duper but I'll probably check that out soon just for fun.
Time now for another cheesey Vincent Price horror flick..... :^) Thanks again for the previous heads up on the cloning softwares.
i prefer tar | tar
or tar |nc on the first box, and nc |tar on the second.

i think the linked "hackintosh" is even more interesting:
