Easily set permissions on a migrated Home folder
Authored by: imageworx on Oct 31, '05 01:51:55PM

This is a hint? I've done this before and never knew it was special. :)

I used a firewire drive with an image mounted of my old drive, then Migration assistant AFTER I reset the user and created new with old name (gotta write it down exactly). It even asked if I wanted to replace the existing user/home.

Rebuilt perms, ran cache cleaner, and all is fine. now 10.4.3 is out..woot!

(Rob, I got a good deal on a Dual 2.5...wait for the Wintel boxes...they will be faster!)
