Fix Worked, Caused Problem?
Authored by: macvantage on Apr 23, '01 09:47:37PM

Pasting in the hostconfig file worked for solving my problems with the disk images not mounting. Being a rookie with the terminal it took me a couple of trys to get things in right.

After restarting to use the new hostconfig, now I can't access the Sharing settings in the System Preferences. Whenever I choose them, System Preferences quits. Any ideas on how to fix this?

check the file access settings:
ls -al /etc/hostconfig
should be:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 472 Jun 29 14:07 /etc/hostconfig
if its not like that then do:
chmod 644 /etc/hostconfig
(as root ofcourse)
hope this helps
