Re: Command Line Classic
Authored by: Paul Burney on Nov 29, '01 10:30:54AM

I frequently have problems with classic networking and with the Microsoft Office Suite. Since many office problems stem from corrupt libraries, I delete them before starting classic. Since the TCP/IP prefs are generated by OS X when classic launches, I also delete them. Here's the script I use to start classic:

#!/bin/sh

# Remove bad prefs from Classic Volume

echo "Removing bad prefs and extensions from Classic volume...";
rm -rf /Volumes/Boot/System Folder/Preferences/TCP:IP Preferences;
rm -rf /Volumes/Boot/System Folder/Extensions/Microsoft*;

echo "Starting Classic...";
open /System/Library/CoreServices/Classic Startup.app & ;

I have an alias to that script called "classic" and I have that script set to run on login.

HTH.
