You can also use Finder:
'Shift + Cmd + G' will open up the 'Go to folder' window.
Enter '/etc' and you will show up in a new folder where the file 'hosts' should exist.

Instead of looking for and editing the hosts file you might want to use the NetInfo Manager tool to manage your host names and IP addresses. Look in your Utilities folder.

This tool maintains a database of system name/value information, of which the host information is just a small part.

I can't step you through it as I'm on a PC now (yuck) but the built in help is pretty good.

Just remember to restart/reload the database after you've made all your changes. This is toward the right end of the menu bar.

1.Double-click the DMG file to mount it.
2.Open Disk Utility, located in the Utilities folder within Applications.
3.Highlight the mounted disk, indented directly beneath the DMG file, in Disk Utility's sidebar.
4.Select "New Image" from the navigation toolbar.
5.Enter a name for the new image, select a place to save it and select "DVD/CD Master" from the Format drop-down menu. Select "OK" to start the process.
6.Open the folder containing the newly converted image file. It will have .cdr for its extension. Double-click the text to bring up the editing field to rename the file. Delete ".cdr" and add ".iso" and press "Enter." A warning will pop up, asking if you would like to keep the extension .cdr or use .iso. Select "Use .iso" and your DMG file is now an ISO file.
Thanks for using Fixya.Have a good day.

Need help installing MAC Os x 10.63 as a virtual machine on oracle virtual box on win7 host


Upon starting VMware, click on the New Virtual Machine button.A Wizard will open. Click Next.Select Typical. Click Next. (On later versions of VMWare, select Custom instead so that you can set your disk drive to IDEinstead of SCSI, as required below.)Select Other, then pick FreeBSD. Click Next.
  • IMPORTANT NOTE! If you are using a Conroe or Core 2 Duo, select Windows and then Windows NT from the dropdown list. Using FreeBSD will cause a stack fault on boot. Same applies to Core Duo (945PM/Calistoga).

You will likely need to select one [1] Virtual Processor as well. Selecting 2 Virtual Processors will likely cause installation and/or bootup to fail.

  • for Gigabyte GA-965P-DQ6: IDE is used instead of SCSI. otherwise the system will not be able to find any installable disk.
  • for Asrock Conroe 945G-DVi: IDE is used instead of SCSI. otherwise the system will not be able to find any installable disk.
  • Dell E1405 and D620 (and maybe other Dell Core Duo laptops): IDE is required instead of SCSI.
  • for Asus P5B-VM IDE is required instead of SCSI, otherwise the system will not be able to find any installable disk.
  • (If you do not see this option, go back to the beginning and choose Custom instead of Typical. You cannot change SCSI to IDE once you have created the VM.)
Name it whatever you want (I used Mac OS X), put it wherever you want. Click Next.
  • Location of virtual harddisk drives can be determined at this point in time. For best performance always try to put virtual machines on a separate physical hard drive. Partitions don't count. This is because the biggest performance hit in virtual machines is disk I/O. If the VM is on the same drive as your OS the VM fights with your OS for disk access. When the OS needs to use a swap file it makes the matter much, much worse. Additionally, today's USB 2.0 and firewire external hard drives run on a fast interface bus, have large buffers and spin at 7,200 rpm, as opposed to 4,200 rpm for most laptop hard drives.


If you are using a non-legal copy you'll want to use Host-only networking initially to prevent Mac OS X from registering itself during installation. If this is a legal copy, use NAT. Click Next.Set the Disk size to anything greater than 6GB. You don't have to but I recommend that you allocate the disk space now so that disk performance is increased. When done, click Next. You may also split files into 2GB pieces if on FAT partition.Click Finish. . . .[edit]Step 4 - ?????[edit]Step 5 - Profit![edit]Step 6 - Setting up your Virtual MachineOpen up your new virtual machine configuration.Under Devices:Double click Memory and set the amount of RAM you'd like to use. The minimum is 128MB but the recommended minimum is 256MB. Make sure you don't use too much of your total RAM as swapping may occur and could lead to big problems! I use 512MB (out of 1GB System) and I have set my Memory Preferences [Edit>Preferences>Memory] to Fit all virtual machine memory into reserved host RAM.Double click the CD-ROM drive and select the letter of the Virtual Drive with the mounted ISO that you created with Alcohol 120%. If you are using Daemon Tools you may not see your drive listed. See the next step for further details.Now EXIT VMware. Here comes the boring part =P[edit]Step 7 - Editing your VMware ConfigLocate where you've stored your Virtual Machine files in Windows Explorer.Mine is ..\My Documents\My Virtual Machines\MacOSX\Open up your Virtual Machine Configuration File (.vmx extension) in Notepad.Add the following line to the end of the file.paevm=true

(note: If your CPU does not support PAE, you can't run OSx86 under VMWare on your CPU; OSx86 needs a PAE compatible CPU to work. Intel Pentium M <1.5GHz do not have PAE, so don't try it on those CPUs)
If you are using Daemon tools you may need to help VMware find the drive. If that is the case then modify the lines in the configuration file referring to the CD-ROM drive similar to this (note replace X: with the drive you have configured in Daemon Tools):ide1:0.present = TRUEide1:0.fileName = X:ide1:0.deviceType = cdrom-rawSave the Config file, close Notepad, and continue to Step 7.

Note: on 10.4.8 8.8.1 kernel and networking: This is a good time to remove existing ethernet0virtualDev (if any) and add:
ethernet0.virtualDev=e1000

Note: sometimes scsi0.present = TRUE won't work, so set it to False:
scsi0.present = FALSE

Note: if you change any settings in the VMware interface after editing the .vmx file, it will overwrite your changes. You will need to go back and change the settings again! It is best to make these edits while VMware is not running.
Here comes the fun part =D[edit]Step 8 - Installing Mac OS XStart your Mac OS X Virtual Machine.When the Mac OS X boot prompt appears, click the logo then hit F8 to add boot options.Type in -v and hit enter. This puts you into Verbose mode which will let you know if something is going wrong.It may take a while depending on your hardware to load the installation. Be patient.

[edit]Step 9 - Setting up your Hard DriveFollowing along in the installation, you'll reach a point where it's time to select your Hard Drive, but nothing is listed.Open Utilities -> Disk Utility on your disk

Note Re 10.4.8: Disk Utility has been reported not to work (it makes an efi partition). Use a prior version to partition your disk, or partition it with another OS, then use 10.4.8 disk utility to erase (by reformatting) this partition. Otherwise it won't boot. Note: no need for using a previous version just apply PPF2 to fix the disk utility http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=38125
Select the VMware drive on the left. Click partition on the right.Change the Volume Scheme to 1 partition and choose a name. The format should stay Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and the partition should use all space available.Click partition, then partition again. After it is finished (progress in bottom right), you can close the Disk Utility.Your drive now shows up in setup. Proceed, proceed.[edit]Step 10 - Using a Custom InstallationIf you have a patched installation you should select a custom installation to see if there are patches listed there that you'll need to include (such as selecting the appropriate patch set for your CPU, see Comment 2). Another place to check is opening up a Terminal window and looking around the installation disc..

Is there an equivalent program on apple like regedit?


Apple has files that contain the same type of info as the windows registry .

They are referred to as .plist files.

Example:

/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences

There is not a typical registry.

To change the location where MySQL creates its socket file, do this:
1. Open your preferred text editor and create a plain text file.
2. Type this text (on two lines as shown):
[mysqld]
socket=/tmp/mysql.sock

3. Save the file as: /etc/my.cnf


To change the location where PHP looks for the socket file, follow these steps:
1. In Terminal: sudo cp /etc/php.ini.default /etc/php.ini
2. Open /etc/php.ini in your preferred text editor.
3. Find the [MySQL] section, and change the mysql.default_socket directive:
4. ; Default socket name for local MySQL connects. If empty, uses
5. the built-in
6. ; MySQL defaults.
7. mysql.default_socket = /var/mysql/mysql.sock
8. Change the permissions on /var/mysql so that www can read the socket, by executing this in Terminal:
sudo chmod 775 /var/mysql
