TruBlueEnv must run as root
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 03, '01 11:55:51PM

My situtation is similar - OS X on a UFS partition, OS 9.1 on an HFS+ partition. You
have to copy Classic Startup from the UFS to HFS+. In copying the files, you lose the
setuid bit (TruBlueEnvironment must run as root).

A file that is locked in Classic/MacOS 9.1 cannot be deleted,
not even by root. The fix is to install the Developer Tools from
the grey OS X CD. There is a utility


that lets you lock/unlock the file. Therefore, in order to get
TruBlueEnvrionment to have setuid, the following is necessary:

% /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a l /Volumes/Path/To/Your/TruBlueEnvironment
% chmod 4755 /Volumes/Path/To/Your/TruBlueEnvironment

I have had this hapen after installing games in both OS X and 9.

Unfortunately I am a Neophite when it comes to Unix. I have downloaded developer found tools and want to setuid. Exactly what steps do i follow?
