my uid is 1000, but i cant i rw osx

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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.)

Wow! That is great! Good luck with the interview. Every time I have worked with Apple, their employees have always been first class. Apple must be a good company to work for.

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.

    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
      Grazie
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
    • yes it is. i can boot using a backup from a backup of my clover. i am just trying to fix the VGA /HDMI so i tried using the clover i got from Allan
    •     I mean't to fix that. The new attached EFI only contains new USB patch that will unlikely fix anything unless your hackintosh is installed on a USB drive. If it is installed on your hard drive, as I said, try playing with the patches I attached in the screenshot (i.e. disabling some of them).   Your SATA Mode is AHCI in the BIOS right?
