OS X V10.7 Lion :: SSD Boot Drive Permissions Not Correct

Apr 18, 2012

I tried running blackmagic design's disk speed test on our Mac pro ssd boot drive only to be told that the drive was read only. looking at the disk info I saw this:

admin: r&w
system: read only
wheel: ro
everyone: ro

I changed system to r&w to allow me to use the disk test. I would have expected to see (me) somwehere in the access list but I'm not there and I can't add myself. Is there a way to rest the drive's permissions to the default settings? Or what is the best solution to wipe the drive and start over?

Mac Pro :: Roaring Fans - Hardware Test Fine But Permissions Are Not Correct

May 19, 2012

The fans of my mid-2010 quad core mac pro speed up to sound like jet engines. The machine can be running all day or for less than an hour.The number of applications in use range from 1 - 5.The activity monitor always shows the finder using the most resources.About this mac says all of the ram is good. The hardware test says all if fine. I have reset the machine by unplugging it for few minutes.

There is one thing that is problematic and I do not know if affects the fans - the permissions are not correct. When I run repair permissions it returns a large number of 'acl found but not expected' and frequently changes the permissions so only the system can 'read or write'. Then I have to manually change them to what I need.

OS X Yosemite :: Spotlight Fails To Search After Upgrade On IMac

OS X Yosemite :: Importing Large MBox File From 10.6.8 Mail Fails

Dec 8, 2014

I have several local .mbox files created with the Apple Mail client from 10.6.8 saved "on my Mac"  after doing a clean install of Yosemite I am having trouble getting them to import.  One is ~5GB the other is ~2.5 GB.  a smaller one (66MB) with 300 items fails to fully import (gets only ~170 items). 

Is there a  better way to force the new mail client to read these or is there another mail program that can read these?  These are important emails.

OS X :: Cannot Run Sudo Command In Terminal

Nov 29, 2009

I can't seem to run a sudo command in the OS X terminal. Every time I run a sudo command, I get no response, as if the command is not run at all. My sudo appears to be broken somehow. I've got a problem with mounting an NTFS drive that is dirty. I have a command I am trying to run using the "sudo" command, but it is not working.

Code: sudo /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g /dev/disk0s3 /Volumes/WIN XP -o force

After the sudo, I am prompted for my password, but after that the only response I get is another prompt, as if the command was totally ignored. I have tried many different commands after the sudo, and cannot get a response from anything. I even tried "sudo tcsh", which should open up a new shell, but nothing. "sudo ls" also shows nothing, just another prompt.

OS X :: Sudo Not Working - Permission Denied

Mar 4, 2008

I've used sudo before successfully, but suddenly it doesn't work anymore! For example, I try setting a shutdown timer using:

sudo shutdown -h +60
sudo pmset disksleep 30
or even just
and get
sudo: can't open /private/etc/sudoers: Permission denied
Just typing sudo alone results in the same error.

I've tried searching and following other threads on this topic to no avail. Repairing permissions from disk utility didn't help either.

MacBook Pro :: SUDO Command - How To Remove A User Using Terminal

Mar 30, 2012

So I just inherited from my coworker's MacBook Pro. I then decided to transfer all of my files and realized that the root folder was still on his name. I changed the User's name in "System Preferences" but that did not change the root folder's name. I then went to Terminal and tried to change the folder's name using the "mv OldFoldersName NewFoldersName"  and the prompt said Permission denied. I then used "sudo mv OldFoldersName NewFoldersName". After restarting my computer, all the files were gone and I landed on a "LION first time USE" type of Desktop. All my files are gone and terminal shows me two users' names under /Users/ => OldUser and NewUser.

What can I do to recover my old files? What can I do to repair my Mistake and only have one User?

OS X :: Repair Permissions Isn't Repairing Permissions

Mar 29, 2009

Using OS X 10.5.6

When running Repair Permissions in Disk Utility, it reports that there are errors and that it's fixed them but if I run it again, the same errors keep appearing.

I've noticed that the current permissions on the errors are lrw-rw-rw- which I assume means that they are symbolic links and not the actual files which Disk Utility is expecting. Any idea what's going on?

OS X :: Correct Method To Uninstall?

Jan 1, 2010

I installed Perian the other day and decided I wanted to get rid of it. I just dragged the icon from applications as well as the dmg to the bin. Is that the correct method to 'uninstall' something?

After doing that I can still see Perian from the other section in settings as well as if I right click on a video it gives me settings for perian. How do I properly uninstall something and get rid of it from everywhere?

We got a refurbished Alu MB for an intern and the time is not displaying properly. If I check the "Set date & time automatically", the digital and analog clock is showing different times. See picture. Also, when I go in Time Zone, I set Eastern time, it will set it, but when I go back to preference, it sets back to GMT.

It's running 10.5.6.
