i have been thinking about the clear advantages of using a .nix system on a small partition as a way to maintain/recover osx a last resort as i am still learning single user mode.
heres the thing. i have my osx volume mounted and my uid matches my osx uid so why cant i get permissions?
even remount force rw doesn't do the trick?
yes i have googled it, however various documentation refers to 10.4.x im on 10.6.x
im using Ubuntu natty narwhal at the moment.
any help much apreciated

Log in as root then you can manipulate the permissions and usage of anything in your file system or file. If you are already logged in, you can issue the command: "su -" then enter the root password and you should be on your way. (Note: that is "su minus sign" at the command prompt without the quotation marks.)

oh thank you so much, i think it well of course i cant actually talk about it because i had to sign a legal contract. but i can say this, there is a very good reason why apple employees are first class. its quite interesting but i am not allowed to talk about it . that was my first ever interview for my first ever job.
