    Hi,

     

    So, is it AJ doesn't work at all, or what? Just not applejack auto?

     

    In single user mode, what happens if you just type applejack & hit enter? Do you get the steps to try one by one?

    My understanding is that AJ relies upon single user mode invoking /var/root/.profile which contains the AJ message and an alias pointing to its script. This works well in Tiger and Leopard but it appears that one or more Snow Leopard users get neither the message nor the alias redirect despite /var/root/.profile being modified by AJ and the AJ's script being correctly installed.

    I came across another OS X / Linux duel boot user who wired Ethernet issues:

    Perhaps just a coincidence - or is it?

    Basically I'm posting here to repeat the thanks for the "Period" app, but, as I have no phone/internet at home I have not been able to install/try it.

     

    It is very small. Put it on a USB memory stick.

    In 10.6, see if you have this...

     

    /private/var/root/Library/Scripts/applejack.sh

     

    Likely you won't have Permissions to see it... but you can change that right?

     

    Just ran it in 10.6, (though it isn't needed asmuch)...

    You were asked if you could see it.

     

    Select Go to Folder on Go menu and paste /private/var/root/Library/Scripts - then hit Go.

     

    Can you see the applejack.sh file?

     

    I suspect you can because you have invoked it from the Terminal - something you were not asked to do.

    I don't know what a root account is ??

     

    With a normal admin account can you find the file by starting with either of the following in Go to Folder:

     

    /private


    /var

    oops - I forgot that you would not be able to see the contents of the root folder without logging in as the root user or using the Terminal with:

     

    sudo ls -l /private/var/root/Library/Scripts
