But Java 7 and 8 have GUI and OS/X integration bugs that Java 6 doesn't. Oracle is aware of the issues but doesn't seem to actually care. I've had conversations with them and even Java 9 doesn't have a timeline for fixing the defects. Oracle's efforts seem to be focused on JavaFX and not Swing/AWT. I'd made a thumbdrive installer for 10.8 this summer and successfully used it on another one of my Macs. But on this one it gets to the end and reports 'Can't download the additional components needed to install OS X.' Internet is fine; I can connect to Apple's software update and iTunes Store servers, for example.

OS X :: Necessary To Install Additional Drivers After UpgradeAug 25, 2009
I got my first Mac (15' MacBook Pro) in late June, so I will be receiving my Snow Leopard disc within the next week or so. This will be my first reinstallation of OSX. I will not do an upgrade however - I'm still going to do a clean reformat/reinstall. So, is it necessary to do additional driver installations once you have finished installing OSX? I know on a Windows machine, after you install the OS, you really need to go through and install drivers for most of your hardware. I'm wondering how this works with OSX.
Mac Pro :: Install Additional PCI Video CardsMar 5, 2010
I understand that the PCI-X slots are backwards compatible with PCI, correct? If so, can we install 2 additional PCI video cards? Or, can we use PCI-X video cards for Windows and somehow flash them with Mac drivers? Of course, there is the matter of budget: we have very little to work with. Would any of you have a spare video card that would work in this machine and be willing to donate it? I can email you an in-kind donation form you can use for tax purposes.
Windows On Mac :: What Is The Minimum Recommended Hard Drive Space Needed For A 7(x64) InstallJul 4, 2010
I have a MBP 13.3' w/ 4GB of RAM and an Intel G2 160GB SSD. I will need to install Windows 7 and one third-party application (not very large).
So I'm wondering, assuming I only need the OS install and the third-party application takes up minimal space, and I will not be installing anything other than whatever comes with the truckload of windows updates, what is the suggested partition size for Win7 (x64)?
Also, is there anything special I need to do (TRIM?) regarding my SSD?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Get Rid Of Additional DesktopsMay 9, 2012
This is what happens on my computer and I can't seem to get rid of the 'black' desktops with google chrome icon on them. There is no 'X' sign to shut them down and as far as I can tell the only thing that works is if I either shut down my computer or quite google chrome which isn't too convenient.Is there another way to 1. prevent these 'black' desktops from apearing and 2. to get rid of them without shuting down the computer or quiting chrome everytime ?

I have a 1 TB drive in in my iMac that was recently replaced. The restored data uses about 850GB. I have been using a 2TB drive as a Time Machine backup drive. With the new internal drive in the iMac, TM said that it couldn't back up the drive,Â that 4.91TB were needed, and only 2TB available. I reformated the TM drive and I get the same error message.

Applications :: Needed To Re-install OSX, Files Were Saved, Applications Were Not?Jun 5, 2010
alrightyyy so basically my unibody 2008 macbook crashed a short while back, needed to re-install OSX, files were saved, applications were not. I had been using iLife '09 off a copy that my mother got with with her 2009 polycarbonate macbook. After the crash I upgraded to 10.6 and attempted to install iLife '09 again. It told me thus: 'Alert: this software cannot be installed on this computer'. And that's it. I can't access any of my pictures in iPhoto or upload any(3 wedding albums :3), and I can't access any of my old Garage Band files, simply because they were created on '09 and since the reboot I'm stuck with '08. Major bummer. Bottom Line: is there any way to get iLife '09 on my computer without wasting $100 just to access files?
