Drive 10 support

The reason this doesn't work is because the Security Framework wants to be able to write to /tmp, and the CD-ROM is read-only. To solve the problem, mount some disk read-write to /tmp. After you do this, the Security Framework should work correctly.

What do you mean exactly with 'mount some disk read-write to /tmp' ? Can you write me an example ?
Can i do the same operation (run an Drive 10 as root) using Skeleton Key or Pseudo ?

I would like to know also what you mean by 'mount some disk read-write to /tmp' ...
Could SOMEone please explain what he/she means by that? It's too vague.

This will help:

1. Create a partition in RAM with a size of 10MB with the command:
hdik -drivekey system-image=yes -nomount ram://20480

2. The last command should return something like '/dev/disk3'. Remember that as you will need it for the next commands. Whenever /dev/disk3 appears in the next steps replace it with what you got from the hdik command.

3. Initialize the partition with the command:
newfs /dev/disk3

4. Mount the partition in /tmp without loosing files that are already there:
mount -o union /dev/disk3 /tmp/

You're done. I guess that 10MB are enough if you need more please note that the hdik command as shown in step 1 needs the amount of 512 Byte blocks and not the size in Byte for the RAM partition. 1024 = 0.5 MB, 2048 = 1 MB, 20480 = 10 MB, 102400 = 50 MB. If you're confused then just take the size needed in KBytes, multiply it by 2 and use that value.
