View Full Version : "Could not disable ignore permissions" and solution

Hey, Dave!
Just wondering...

After applying the Terminal command:

sudo rm /var/db/volinfo.database

to resolve the Tiger bug involving permissions enabling, would one need to re-apply after zapping PRAM or pressing the CUDA button on the motherboard of a given Mac if it's acting all wonky?

I ask as a few backups have frozen half-way through recently.
Frankly, I don't think SD is at fault. Alas, my QuickSilver is starting to flake out... but haveth ye no fear... I haveth ordereth a new G5!

Nevertheless, I thought Id check with you.

Thanks, as always, for the best backup software for the Mac. You da Man!

Oh... I haven't forgotten about sending you a CD. I just found where I wrote down your address, so Ill be sending it out this week.

Hi, Darin. No, that command is very, very limited in scope, and couldn't possibly account for any flakiness. If things are freezing - like the whole computer? - it's more likely a hardware issue. Can you be a bit more descriptive about what you're seeing?
