Hi there i have got a question here, i just wanna change the timeout for my Darwin Bootloader through com.apple.Boot.plist but it says that i dont have the privilege to do so although my account has full read and right access to this file

 

Any suggestions on how to add privileges to this file using my Account???

Or make a copy of the file to your desktop, make the edit - then copy it back. OS X should then ask you to authenticate.

 

Once you've moved it back, then open a terminal and do:

 

sudo -s

(enter password)

cd /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration

chown -R root:wheel com.apple.Boot.plist

 

Or you could just do repair disk permissions.

 

This happens because the owner of the file is root, not your login. If you log in as root (need to enable root user first) you can make the edit without any messing around.

Well i think its better for me to enable root in order to avoid all this mess. Can you please guide me how to enable root??

 

And is there any way that i can have all the privileges for my login??
