In my effort to clean up a system, and hard drive on an G4 iBook with OS 10.5.8 I have attempted to start up using the Command + S keys. After all the unix type stuff is passed I try to use the applejack utility. But it gives me the message that I am not the root user! I have used the Directopry Utility as well as the System Prefs and cannot seem to rectify the situation.

 

I just happen to like what Applejack does.

iBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    Very strange, I've never had it ask for or demand Root user!?

     

    Is it possible you installed it using root???

     

    I mean it is in...

     

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

     

    But Single User Mode should have rights!?
