Write NTFS with MACFuse

January 16th, 2007 3 comments

This one is for multi OS addicts like me.
I have a triple boot with 2 versions of OS X86 and Windows XP.
So how do I exchange files between OS X86 and Windows systems?

Under Windows XP, I use MacDrive to read/write HFS+ partitions.
But under OS X86, I must use a FAT32 partition to write data on a windows partition.
NTFS is not supported in writing mode.

I really want to get rid of that FAT32 partition and avoid the max 4 gigs file size limitation.
So here is the solution, use MACFuse to write to NTFS file system.

XAR – *NEW* MacOS X 10.5 package format

December 30th, 2006 13 comments



New package format in MacOS X 10.5 implemented by Apple.
They chose XAR.

Seems they made the decision a few months ago, but it’s finally implemented
in the last seed of MacOS X 10.5 (link)

The latest release seeded to developers has the xar tool and libxar.

Package Maker and Installer have been adapted to create and install
packages using the xar format (respectively).
Should we expect a major update of Pacifist software soon?
