Making it work correctly
Authored by: Algorythmn on Feb 11, '02 03:09:09PM

I added a comment to myself that shows how to get renice working for all admins w/o root's password. Also, my script works fine without quotes around "Classic Startup.app", because I have the following in the cd line:

cd '" & appPath & "'

So you wind up with:

cd '/System/Library/CoreServices/Classic Startup.app/Contents/Resources/'

Try it out in Terminal, you'll see it works. :)

Could you please make a more explicit set of directions for making this work? I've tried and tried, and no luck. I had a simple AppleScript working at first, but now it doesn't any more. I tried the method of using "chmod +x [filename]" that is recommended above, but that does nothing. I'm sorry to be so dense, but there has to be a way to make a very clear set of instructions for accomplishing this tip, doesn't there?

Thanks, John
