Classic and Super User privs.
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 25, '01 12:00:20PM

I also had this problem (unable to launch Classic because of "superuser" "Trubluenvironment" message). Incidentally, Apple tech support had not heard of this problem.

The problem seemed to start after I had fooled around with privileges in order to do the simple task (in OSX) of deleting text files that I had created under 9.1. I don't know if that was the cause of the problem.

From a very long support call with Apple techs, it appears that the problem was caused by a corrupted 9.1 System Folder, including possibly hosed or missing special extensions that OS X places in the 9.1 System Folder. Ultimately our cure was a clean install of 9.1.

Classic now launches, but the problem of not having sufficient privileges to delete 9.1 files remains. I wish Apple would clear up how to handle the privileges. It does no good to suggest "just login as admin" when there is only one account, the admin, on the mac.
