any1 know how?
Look this is not a mobile phone if you want to ask something ask properly.
does any1 know how to turn an ibook g4 into a smackbook
i dont know if i am the only ONE who is unclear on this, but what is a smackbook?
He's asking about the "SmackBook" hack that uses the sudden motion sensor to activate a virtual desktop program, hence switching screens when you thwack the side of the laptop.
And not that I know of currently. Check the project page and comments there. If your iBook was built before July 26, 2005 (that is, a first-gen 1.33GHz or anything earlier), then it doesn't even have the SMS, so it's not possible at all. Basically only the very last generation of iBooks have a SMS.
What are you going to smack in to? VirtualPC?
You can't run Parallels.
They would "smack" onto another virtual desktop by using a program like Virtue Desktops or DesktopManager. Basically you can run different applications on different "virtual" desktops. I personally use Virtue and have 6 desktops (Main, Browsing, Chat, Media, Mail, and Code). I'll have Safari and Opera in my Browsing desktop, Adium and Colloquy in my Chat desktop, etc. It's a great feature to have on a portable with a small screen.
Ok with no help from any of you I figured it out.
go to this website:
then you have to change a couple values:
gotten from this website: http://blog.medallia.com/2006/05/smacbook_pro.html
for my ibook g4 (built with the SMS)
my $x = $a;
if(abs($x) > 8 && $stable > 30)
the above code looks confusing but if you follow the directions from the first website i gave it will all make perfect sense. i am by no means a noob on a mac but had no previous experience programming.
i am figuring out how to autoboot now.
Good for you. Remind yourself to be more polite to those you ask assitance from.
see this tutorial on cnet.... explains how to make the uni binary smackbook on a PPC machine...
very cool indeed!
Ditto on that one. First they expect everyone to be mind readers and then gets snippy when they have to *GASP* do a little bit of research to figure it out. Oh, and anyone is spelled anyone. Not any1.
How hard is it to write anyone?
what's wrong with using colloquial language on a forum?
you guys need to chill out a bit, OK maybe he was a little bit rude his first post but he corrected it. so what's the prob?
i think you need to be a little more polite on the responses; don't be a hypocrite and call him rude if you're doing the same thing
Closed - OP found the solution they were looking for. Let's all try to be more polite in asking/answering each other.
