Since I have my Apple computer, I needed to learn some basics like new shortcuts : Command-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it as a file on the desktop Command-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it as a file on the desktop Command-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it as a file on the desktop Command-Control-Shift-3: Take a screenshot of the screen, and save it to the clipboard Command-Control-Shift-4, then select an area: Take a screenshot of an area and save it to the clipboard Command-Control-Shift-4, then space, then click a window: Take a screenshot of a window and save it to the clipboard In Leopard, the following keys can be held down while selecting an area (via Command-Shift-4 or Command-Control-Shift-4): Space, to lock the size of the selected region and instead move it when the mouse moves Shift, to resize only one edge of the selected region Option, to resize the selected region with its center as the anchor point To burn an ISO file : Insert a blank disc. Start Disk Utility. From the File menu, choose Open Disk Image and select the ISO to be burned. In the list of volumes, you will now see an item representing the ISO file. Select it. Click the Burn button and follow the instructions. Very good and useful tool : http://www.titanium.free.fr/pgs2/french/onyx_snowleopard.html website is in french but the software in English. Here’s a list of system start-up hot keys to press while Mac OS X is booting, and their various effects: C – Boot from a CD/DVD T – Boot in Target Disk mode (FireWire only) N – Boot from an attached network server (NetBoot mode) X – Attempt to force Mac OS X to boot Shift – Boot up in ‘Safe Mode’ which has limited functionality Command+V – Boot into Verbose mode Command+S – Boot in Single user mode
In this post I explain how I tried to troubleshoot this issue, if you need the solution, go at the end of this post. My company (Activlan) had to renew our certificate installed on our Citrix Secure Gateway 3.1.3. As you might know, Citrix has issued some virtual appliance and I had to chose between, Citrix Access Gateway 4.6.2 VPX and Netscaller VPX Express (Free !). My choice was to integrate a Citrix Access Gateway (CAG) mainly because we are using other product to manage VPN to all our customers and I wanted to install what I needed, nothing less, nothing more. So here we go, I got my xva file from MyCitrix account and I just deploy it on our XenServer, very easy, very simple, just some clicks. Once installed and basics configuration set, I had to generate the CSR (Certificate Signing Request) and wait for Verisign to send me the certificate I had to use with the CAG. This was a big adventure and of course I should have read the manual before, and configuration isn't so easy but I guess when you do it all day long you begin to know everything and I can say now, I know how to troubleshoot a CAG from the client side to the Web Interface. This error I got with my Mac didn't show up on my Windows computers. In fact Apple doesn't have a very big list of root certificate install on their OS compare to Windows. Here is the error message I got when I wanted to launch published application (XenApp). I was able to login in the CAG and the Web Interface as well, but not able to launch application. SSL Error 61: You have not chosen to trust "Verisign Class 3 Secure Server CA - G2", the issuer of the server's security certificate. Error number: 183 Sexy message, isn't it ? After searching around a bit I found this thread on Citrix's forums : http://forums.citrix.com/message.jspa?messageID=447656 everything went clear, I didn't had the root certificate on my computer to validate my brand new certificate from Verisign... So I tried to find how to get these root certificates, especially Verisign Class 3 Secure Server CA - G2, the one I needed. I found this Verisign address http://www.verisign.com/repository/roots/pca_certificate.html where you just have to fill a form to get a zip with everything what you might need : As you…

This is a simple "how to" install Apple Mac OS Snow Leopard on a netbook Asus EEEPc 1000HE What you need: EEEPC 1000HE A working Mac with SnowLeopard installed An external harddrive or USB key A Snow Leopard install DVD : only 29$ http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC223?mco=MTAyNTQwMjU Downloads: Kexts from rcfa at http://www.zshare.net/download/66089613f77ee41a/ NetbookInstaller at http://code.google.com/p/netbook-installer/downloads/list SuperDuper disk cloner at http://www.shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/SuperDuperDescription.html Simple steps: Format the USB drive with GUID format (e.g. with DiskUtility) Install SnowLeopard on external USB drive using the working laptop Boot from external USB drive, perform all upgrades, e.g. to 10.6.1, software installs (XCode etc). You could do this on the EEEPC, too, but most likely it's much faster on your SnowLeopard machine. Download and install SuperDuper.app on the external disk Boot from external USB drive, start NetbookInstaller and set up basic extensions and Bluetooth with the target volume being the EXTERNAL disk (if you pick the wrong disk you regular mac will stop working) Install kexts: Install these with kext Helper (to /System/Library/Extensions, not /Extra) and copy dsdt.aml, dsdt.dsl, smbios.plist, com.apple.Boot.plist to /Extra. Now, plug the USB drive into your EEEPC and boot from the external drive. You should have a working Hackintosh (albeit a bit slow). Format the internal disk in GUID format, I made 2 partitions 80Gb each and GUID the second one. Clone the external disk to the internal one using SuperDuper.app. This will take a loooong time. Start NetbookInstaller.app again and perform the same installs as above but now on the INTERNAL disk of your EEEPC. Reboot ... I found this how to on Small Computing, Ijust made some change to adapt it and I've tested it with success
