Not sure that this has an answer, but Vuze on 10.7 will not transfer any data. It manages to open connections but then "stalls".

I've tried switching to the 32 bit JRE, and installing a Java 7 beta. Any ideas for something else to try?

Besides that fact, the Lion install specifically does not have any receipt/account checking and can be installed on any number of machines.

I have a quick question about Lion. I know they removed the current samba program but did they replace it with something else in Lion? The only stuff on Google coming up are rumor sites from when the samba news first broke. Thanks

They replaced it with their own implementation which apparently works with Win7 machines but not much else, including WinXP and random NAS devices/ XBMC/Boxee/etc.

You can install samba3 through MacPorts, and I'm sure someone will package it soonish when it becomes apparent that we're back to the 10.1 days of nothing loving working interoperability-wise.

There's no way to have different scroll settings between mouse and trackpad, although there are separate options in Sys Prefs for them. Hopefully Apple will allow that behaviour in an update.

In the meantime, you can use USB Overdrive to get what you want on a laptop, but not with a Magic Trackpad.

It's normal for most actions to skip, slow down or pause. It's doing a mount of the Time Machine backup device, and if you have a slow disk (or if it's over the network), the filesystem has to wait for it.

iTunes audio has never skipped for me before, even under very heavy CPU and IO load.
Only in 10.7 has this started.

I've had some issues with sound (mostly involving youtube not working with a specific sound output, and a different sound output having a bunch of popping that wasn't there before). I hope there's going to be sound fixes in 10.7.1.

Yeah, there's definitely some bugs related to audio outputs. Symptom is that the app will just stop playing any sound. I see it in WoW, VLC and Mumble... changing the audio output in the application's settings and back again fixes it for me, or just quit and restart the app.

Civ IV is a native port done by Aspyr. That said, it's possible the steam service just doesn't bother with that kind of thing.

You could probably fix the icon by downloading one of the updates and copy/pasting the icon from the installer.

Lion bug, I have the same issue. Apps seem to "lose" their sound output device after a while.
To avoid a reboot you can change the sound output inside VLC to something else then back again and it will play audio again.

Got a problem. I have a mac pro and I have bootcamp running vista and win 7 on separate drives. Today I decided to remove the vista partition. After I removed vista it will not boot into Windows 7. It seems like the bootcamp partition is gone, or messed up. If I go to start up disk it shows the bootcamp drive but it will not load into that. Windows 7 seems to be there still but I can't seem to tell it that it can boot to it. I can't even open it in VM Fusion. Any ideas?

Pretty sure when you installed Win7 it would boot having chained itself from the Vista bootloader.
I would try booting off the Win7 disk and repairing your windows install. To be safe, I would remove the Mac hard disk first.

Parallels does seem to be technically better but I have to say that I much prefer that VMWare does *not* use Lion's full screen mode. Having a full-screen Windows desktop would suck if it took up both my monitors to do it.

As an aside, is it possible to put VMWare into its own space like I could in 10.6?

Also, Parallels can't boot off Win7 on its own disk for some reason. It only supports Boot Camp partitions.

I do not want Text Editor to re-open unsaved documents I had open when I quit the application. In SL, I would just hit cmd-Q and discard changes, so that next time I opened the app, I got a blank slate. In Lion, I only have the option of not saving previously saved documents, so all unsaved documents that I had open will have to be manually closed one by one to prevent them from returning upon opening the app again. And this sucks immensely. How can I fix this?

Try out http://hints.macworld.com/article.p...110918051930924

Disable Saved Application States

OS X Lion offers a checkbox to disable saved application states. However, many applications do not seem to care about that checkbox (e.g. Terminal). The easiest way to prevent applications from writing away saved states is exactly that: don't let them write to the saved application states folder.

To do this, first open up Terminal. Issue the following command to remove any saved application states you might have:

rm -r '~/Library/Saved Application State/*'

Now, prevent anything from writing it's state away ever again:

chmod -R a-w '~/Library/Saved Application State'

You may use the chmod command on individual application's folders inside the Saved Application State folder to prevent a single application from writing its state away.

Likewise, to re-enable saving states, use the same command but make the change 'a+w' instead of 'a-w':

chmod -R a+w '~/Library/Saved Application State'

Disable 'Reopen windows when logging back in'

To permanently disable 'Reopen windows when logging back in,' you can use the following command:

defaults write com.apple.loginwindow TALLogoutSavesState -bool false

This will effectively disable 'Reopen windows when logging back in,' though the checkbox will still be ticked. However, this switch resets itself every time on reboot. To prevent this from happening, again we remove write permissions on the file containing the option:

chmod a-w ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist

This should do it. But there's where OS X gets nasty. When it can't write to this file, it will try to put the write permissions back itself. The solution is to change the owner to root, effectively preventing anyone (but root) from changing permissions on the file:

sudo chown root ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist

To reverse this, simply issue the following commands:

sudo chown $USER ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist
chmod a+w ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow.plist
defaults write com.apple.loginwindow TALLogoutSavesState -bool true

Well, you probably guessed (correctly) that it didn't work. I could see the backup drive on my mac, could copy files from it, but I couldn't write to it.

What's the difference between this drive and any thumb drive I use between my computers? Or the difference between this drive and my phone, whose memory card I can easily access between a Mac and PC, too?

Edit: Back to my original problem: is there an easy way to move around 100gb of photos from a Mac to a PC?

Your hard disk is probably NTFS, which OS X cannot write to out of the box.
Your thumb drive is probably FAT32.

I would suggest reformatting the hard disk to exFAT.
Alternately, if you cannot bear to reformat that disk then try the free trial of Tuxera NTFS which is a third party NTFS driver for OS X.

VMWare Fusion 4.1.0 will run a System 10.6 Client VM. Any earlier/later version won't though (Server only) but I should think it would be easy to find the correct version mirrored to use with your key if you bought it.

Potentially a better option is running the Windows version on Crossover Games.

Either option has a free trial and I'd appreciate hearing how they work if you try it because this question comes up a lot.
