10.4: Boot Intel Macs from iPods and FireWire drives
Authored by: jdmuys on Feb 23, '06 01:38:22AM

Interesting, but I have a problem: on one of two Macs I use, there is no "bless" command. Both Macs have OS X 10.4.5. Any idea what could have happened?

I tried with and without sudo. "locate bless" didn't.

I have installed the developer tools (XCode 2.2), though on another partition through a symbolic link.

bless is supposed to be in /usr/sbin/. It isn't. There is exactly one other command missing from there: diskutil.

I am puzzled. Any idea what could have happened?

TIA

JD

No but I have seen this phenomena myself on a system recently but cannot for the life of me remember the circumstances. It may be related to the installation of the Dev Tools but I cannot be sure of that. If I find out why this happens "sometimes" I'll pass the info back through here.
