10.7: Mount AFP volume with root bug
Authored by: applebit on Jan 10, '12 06:38:07PM

I think the reason most people are scared of root is the same situation as a person being scared of guns. Guns don't kill people, people kill people.

10.7: Mount AFP volume with root bug
Authored by: arcticmac on Jan 10, '12 10:17:02PM

Not logging in as root is arguably easier:
1) I don't have to enable the root account
2) I don't have to close my current session, I just run whatever I need using sudo within my current session
3) I don't have to deal with weird bugs like this, because the rest of my current session is still there, so I can mount the afp server normally and access the mount from the software running with elevated privileges.
