Advertisements I'm not all that sure of how to go about this. I have the newest source code from sourceforge, and I'm in the middle of the annoyingly large (823mb) download of Xcode, but where do I go from there? I've never compiled anything in my life, or at least not since I was a kid messing around with TurboPascal on my old amiga 64 (long time ago). I can see that on my system, they are "disk1" and "disk2" accourding to Disk Uttility. Do I have to install MfsTools in a particular directory? Nightmares of my PHP5/MySQL install are coming back as we speak, because I know next to nothing about Linux or Unix or any other 'nix. If I compile the MfsTools and just type mfstool dd in terminal, will terminal know to do what I want it to? My goal is very simple. I have a DirectTivo Hughes HDVR2. The original drive is failling (cutouts, constant restarts, ect.) and I bought a Western Digital 80gb 7200 drive to replace the original. I don't have any need for backups, hacks, or large disk support. I just want to copy my old drive to the new drive, make the partitions right, and move on with my watching. Just a simple swap, I don't even care about what is recorded on the original drive. The catch is that I only have three Mac to work with. They are all 10.4.4 machines. I installed ExtFSmanager (sourceforge/projects/ext2fsx) to be able to just plain mount the drives as Mac readable FS drive volumes, but Apple changed something in 10.4 that broke ExtFSmanager, so the volumes won't mount. So I'm left with what you did. With, what it seems like quite a bit less knowledge of how to do it.
