I got whacked on this
Authored by: usingmac on Jul 29, '01 01:05:36AM


On this bug.....and that is what it is....The only way to really fix the problem is to reinstall OsX Server from scratch. I was on the phone with Apple for over two hours trying to nail the problem down.

At the time they did not know of the the problem. (about 5 weeks ago).

They asked me to do that command mentioned and tweaked a couple of things. I believe the issue is that the blue screen you see is the login screen trying to run. However, with the user privileges set so noone has rights, the login app can't even run ....hence you get a login window that keeps restarting and before the login window appears, the app restarts....I beleive you see a flicking screen every 10 seconds or so.

They said this would definitely be something to fix. .....

Just a tid bit.....

Alright - got stung by this bug and the only way out was the /bin/fsck trick. Now I assume all my files have permisssions set for everyone - correct? So what do I do now to set the permissions back, or another question may be - do I need to worry about it - since it is my home machine and I am the only user?
