Currently Being ModeratedAug 14, 2009 10:30 AM (in response to Ayabara)I would change Ubunto, not BSD.
Modifying the UID in Leopard can be done, but there are both restrictions and caveats.
Change it back if you can, or else use your backup to restore the OS, and fix Ubunto to accept the UID that BSD has assigned you. 501 is part of the standard Unix numbering system. I never heard about 1000 before.MacBookPro3,1-17"Core2Duo/VistaUlt64SP1; MacBookPro1,1-15"/XPProSP3; Dual G5/XPP, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Homebrew 3GHz ASUS PC, Dell Inspiron8k, Abacus, Sliderule, HP-50G
Currently Being ModeratedAug 15, 2009 12:11 AM (in response to nerowolfe)In Linux (Ubuntu at least), UIDs are normally >= 1000. Still, it's easier to change there than in OS X, so I followed your advice. Thanks.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
