Help, Need PowerMgrLib

Message #1 - Posted 2007/01/20 - Fred Ellis

I was wondering if anyone in this NG knew where I could download a copy of PowerMgrLib. It is, I believe, an extenion for the OS8 system. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The only way to get this that *I* know of would be to have a copy of the system software. And as this is OS 8, you could buy the correct disk on eBay for cheap. Just be sure to get either a retail version, or if you are getting an OE disk, make sure it is for the same machine as you are using it for. I prefer to buy a retail version as I know that it will install correctly on any machine capable of running that OS.

The advantage of owning the system disks is that you don't need to beg borrow or steal parts to repair your OS. I would imagine that you could find the disk you need for less that $20.

StephenC, thanks for your reply. I do have an OS8 disk. I checked it once but couldn't find it. I will check it out again. I hope I don't have to do a 're-install' to obtain this extension file. I hope I just have to copy it off of the disk.

Fred,

It has been a loooong time since I worked with OS 8. So I am not sure that you can just copy a particular OS file from the installer disk. I suspect not. Newer installer disks you cannot normally do this either, AFAIK.

About the only way that *I* can think of to get the file from the disk would be to do an install. Ideally you could do a new install onto a partition separate from the one that currently has OS 8 on it, copy the file you need, then trash the rest of the install.

Generally when I had OS problems back in the version 8 days, I would do an archive and install to get a clean OS on the HD, and then copy any preferences, extensions, etc. over from the archived version as I needed that particular functionality.

The super clean way is to erase the HD (after making absolutely sure you had a good backup) and do a clean install, then reinstall apps, and copy documents from your backup.

StephenC, I was afraid I would have to do an install. I don't have a partition drive. I thought I would try to install the OS8 on to a 250MB Zip Disk. Then copy the extension over to my internal harddrive. You think that would work?

I did check the OS8 disk and found a file folder with extensions in it, but no PowerMgrLib.

As long as the installer recognizes the Zip drive, then it should work fine. I would get the Zip drive mounted so it shows up on the desktop, then insert the install disk in the cd drive. Do not boot from the cd drive because it would not be necessary, and I don't know if the install cd would have the correct drivers to mount the Zip drive.

StephenC

StephenC, thanks for your advice. I'll do as you say. I'll insert the Zip disk into the Zip drive first so it does appear on the desktop first. Then I'll install the OS8 system disk in the CD drive. Next I'll click on the install program and hope it will allow me to install the OS8 System onto the Zip disk.

I'll let you know how it works out.

I am running a PowerMac G-4 with System 10.2.8. When I get on the msn.com site and try to switch to their mail area, FF crashes. This also has begun to happen with I.E. 5.2 and Safari 1.0.3. Any advise?

Clean your caches in FireFox and Safari. Forget I.E.

If that fails, try upgrading to 10.3.X or 10.4.X.

I upgraded to FF 2.0.0.2 that seems to have solved the problem for now. I clean the caches in Safari to see if that helps also.
Thanks
