Hi there! Please assist.

Needed to move my discussion board to another host, but now my "wakaba.pl" page does not work (shows server default "moved" page) and also can't create new post, receive "Unknown Iframe Error" message.

Wakaba.pl set to 755. Directories to 755, files to 644, database imported under the same name with the same user and pass. Anything else that needs to be adjusted?

Mac OS X screen savers (382)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-06-16 19:23 ID:/DCn4yVC [Del]

Not to be confused with the Mac OS X widgets thread, this is the Mac OS X screen savers thread (this one's even more useless!).

So, way back in the day, I made some screen savers for the Amiga named "LotsaBlankers". Later on, I ported some of them to Windows, and created some new ones, but I never managed to make a stable and functional enough screen saver under Windows that I'd feel like releasing it. But now that I've got Mac OS X, I've started porting some of this old code over, since making screen savers for OS X is pretty easy and fun. First one I've got running is this one:


It's based on the work presented on this site, http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/, and it is liable to BLOW YOUR MIND, MAAAAN. I've been too lazy to figure out how to make a preferences GUI for it yet, so even though the code supports all the possible different transformations of the image (Some listed here: http://escherdroste.math.leidenuniv.nl/index.php?menu=im&sub=escher), you can't actually pick which one you want yet.

Hey everyone: I have a 2012 MacBook Pro (non Retina version) and recently updated my OS X from Lion to Mavericks 10.9.5. Really don't want to update any further if possible (hate the UI changes these days...)

Anyway my favorite LotsaWater screensaver stopped working, so looking around I found this thread and info online saying it was fixed in the latest version, so great!

Downloaded it, installed, and... still broken :(

I saw where it says to fully-delete using AppCleaner SO I tried that next. Totally deleted, cleaned as far as I can tell. Re-downloaded latest version again, and... STILL doesn't work, same problem, can't capture screen image before it loads and only runs on BLACK screen.

Anyone have any other idea what I need to do, to get it working? Again this is NOT a multi-monitor computer, just a MacBook Pro with the normal simple laptop screen.

Thanks in advance for all help & ideas.

UPDATE: Okay, some more info... not sure what's going on here but apparently the newest version of LotsaWater DOES WORK on my MacBook, but only SOMETIMES.

It seems to capture the screenshot image okay when using "Preview" from the System Preferences screen saver panel, and also only SOMETIMES runs correctly (with screenshot) when I kick the screensaver into action using the HotCorner setting.

But depending on letting it just "time out" to activate, that only seems to show a black screen with the water effect, i.e. no screen capture. It may also have to do with what application I have running in the foreground (chrome browser?) that's maybe preventing the screen capture? Really not sure, what's goin' on here... any help?

379 Name: BlueCat : 2016-07-23 19:34 ID:zFhLOQ2N [Del]

UPDATE, AGAIN: I'm still trying to figure this out but apparently whatever application window is currently "foreground" or most-recently selected is affecting LotsaWater's ability to do the screen capture.

Sometimes it works, and sometimes it fails and the water effect only runs against a black screen.

The difference is even sometimes apparently only as minor as which TAB of the System Preferences dialog box is selected (i.e. it works after pressing "preview" in the screen saver tab, but then switching to desktop wallpaper on that tab and activating the screensaver only results in black screen).

This is really weird, srsly LOL -- anyone have any idea what's goin' on with LotsaWater on my MacBook? Again this is running on Mavericks v.10.9.5


380 Name: Gooey : 2016-11-22 01:03 ID:KwGUorfI [Del]

I also have trouble with LotsaWater on Sierra 10.12.1.

Preview button in sysprefs works sometimes but mostly throws up a fogged screen beneath the ripple animation that has two buttons "switch user" or "cancel", while the hot corner activation pulls a black screen under the animation, and activating it on time, normally rather, does either of the inappropriate screen grabs.

381 Name: KB Ontario : 2016-12-07 21:14 ID:bxJOb/bB [Del]

I have lotsawarer 1.8 on Yosemite - no problem.

On another machine running Sierra I have version 1.7 and it works.

Mind you, 1.7 was installed probably back in Mavericks days, rather than fresh on Sierra.

I tried 1.8 on Sierra and it did NOT work.

Hope this helps.

382 Name: Vince : 2017-02-21 19:36 ID:lhDXsp14 [Del]

Too bad, on Sierra, the screen shot renders a black screen, while the preview works as expected...
Still, LotsAWater remains my favorite screen saver :)

Hope you'll fix the screenshot s***

500 Internal Server Error (416)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-02-21 17:46 ID:FqgLpoAw (Replies) [Del]

Since 500 Internal Server Errors aren't ever really caused by Wakaba or Kareha themselves, but are still a big problem for lots of people, I'm setting up this thread to discuss various problems and solutions related to them.

407 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-27 14:57 ID:fBHv6Ioj [Del]

Alright, so I've just chmodded my Kareha directory to 777, all the subdirectories to 777, and my scripts to 755. When I run kareha.pl, It generates index.html, index.rss, and subback.html, but it spits out a 500 error afterwords.

In my Apache log, there were these two lines that generated any time I made a request for index.html or kareha.pl:

[Wed Jan 27 12:48:26.628422 2016] [cgid:error] [pid 16453] (13)Permission denied: AH01241: exec of '/var/cgi-bin/kareha/index.html' failed
[Wed Jan 27 12:48:26.631729 2016] [cgid:error] [pid 1029] [client] End of script output before headers: index.html

Now, as you may notice, I'm running cgi-bin out of /var/cgi-bin/ instead of /var/www/html/cgi-bin/. Could this have something to do with my problem? Basic hello world scripts work fine.

This is driving me crazy. What's even the problem here?

408 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-01-27 17:15 ID:Heaven [Del]

cgi-bin directories are usually set to try and execute every file. This is not compatible with how kareha works, it needs to be run from a directory where only .pl files are set to use cgi-handler.

409 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-27 22:25 ID:fBHv6Ioj [Del]

I see. So would the standard /var/www/html suffice?

410 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-01-28 00:39 ID:Heaven [Del]


You'll have to enable cgi-handler for pl files, but other than that, yes.

411 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-28 03:07 ID:fBHv6Ioj [Del]

Alright, thanks. I've now gotten to the error that >>26 posted about, and up there you said that it would require some tweaking to work with mod_perl, which is what I'm using. What would be the easier way than that?

412 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-01-29 09:50 ID:Heaven [Del]


Use mod_cgi.

413 Name: Anonymous : 2016-01-29 14:01 ID:WTy6LpOU [Del]


Alright, thanks!

So what would I have to reconfigure to use mod_cgi instead of mod_perl?

The Unarchiver, part 2 (480)

1 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2011-08-31 12:54 ID:EvuKrlQD [Del]

As the previous thread filled up, here is part 2 of the The Unarchiver thread.

It is much better to post bugs on the bug tracker, rather than in this thread! Anything posted on the bug tracker has much less chance of being forgotten by me!

So, post bugs here: http://code.google.com/p/theunarchiver/issues/list

Also, remember that if you post a bug about a file that is not work, you must also post the file itself, or else there is nothing I can do about it!

I used to be able to open multiple archives at once and select one folder to extract them all to. Now, when I tell multiple archives to open, it asks me for each one, and it's annoying.

I downloaded TheUnarchiver3.11.1_legacy.zip to install in an old resurrected MacBook running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.
The Unarchiver will not run. It quickly appears in the dock and disappears.
Reviewing the Console, it seems The Unarchiver is not recognized as a 64 Bit Intel compatible app.

Any suggestions for remedying this problem? Thanks!

On 3.11.1, still getting "incomplete part"-problem on multi-rar-files.

I've tried other apps, where the same files works flawlessly. But I'd feel really bad about abandoning The Unarchiver now after all these years :/

If I open images with 3.5.2 (MacBook Pro late 2013, OSX 10.9.5), pinch to zoom on trackpad doesn't work. Nothing happens. It works on 3.5.1.

618 Name: matt : 2016-06-09 21:19 ID:LkNnQv0e [Del]

view date last opened.

If I open a picture from finder date last opened changes to the current date. however If I then browse to next image while in xee3 the date last opened is not updated. Is there a way to have xee3 to tell me when was the last time I viewed the image. or does any one know of a little wait program that has this capability.

619 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2016-06-12 00:26 ID:IJWOWqdW [Del]


Hmm. This may be an issue with 10.9.5. Have another machine with a newer OS X to test on?

620 Name: jc : 2016-08-29 00:55 ID:1OSQphoU [Del]

I just upgraded to 3.5.2 and also cannot pinch to zoom using trackpad. OSX 10.9.2 Late 2013. This is disappointing in an otherwise fine app.

Thanks for the great app, I use it constantly.

I have the Mac App Store version of The Unarchiver.

Since I installed macOS Sierra the full text of "The Archiver does not have permission..." message is shown across the entire screen (see attached image).

Also, the width of the dialogue box can't be made less that that shown in the image.

How to make wakaba running in cgi-bin and other directories (5)

1 Name: gash 2005-09-07 07:09 ID:Heaven [Del]

how is it possible to run the wakaba-core in the cgi-bin and the rest (the site itself) in another directory (outside the cgi-bin)

i got many problems doing this... some i got fixed myself, some not...
can someone tell me how to 'run' html sites insite the cgi-bin or how to make it 100% compatible with such a 'half-side'-cgi >_>

thanks for your helps o,o

2 Name: !WAHa.06x36 2005-09-07 09:10 ID:BHU/fxJ9 [Del]

It requires quite a bit of hacking. There's a function named expand_path() or something similar in wakautils.pl that you could hack to make it change all paths to point to some other directory, and you could put in a chdir "/whatever/directory" at the top of wakaba.pl, and...

Or you could yell at your admin to stop being a retard and let you run your CGI scripts where you want them.

3 Name: test 2005-09-07 10:51 ID:Heaven [Del]

You mean there are host who still use /cgi-bin/?

Wow! The 90s called! ;D

4 Name: EleoChan!!MEWiaHtG 2005-09-07 13:40 ID:+dnkZq/Z [Del]

Some hosts still have it there but don't require you to use it. (cough*hosts that use crap like cpanel*cough)

I imagine any host that requires you to use it is a free host. If it isn't, I suggest you get a different host.
