10.7: Mount AFP volume with root bug
Authored by: leamanc on Jan 09, '12 11:43:25AM

I don't want to be nitpicky, but why create the script and run it and then delete it everytime? Why not just create a script that's permanent somewhere?

Why specifically chmod 755 when a simple chmod +x would suffice?

Why mount the volume via an AppleScript wrapped up in osascript when Apple provides mount_afp?

And all that before we even to start questioning the need to login as root. :-)

Probably because for most people chmod 755 is easier than chmod +x. It is an automatism. Sometimes I write 755 when I mean 666 ;-)
