RE: update_prebinding/MOSR Tip
Authored by: Anonymous on Apr 12, '01 03:39:21AM

OK I tried this again, I knew better, and OS X told me I should have listened to myself and then it threw up on my nice new tie. I was denied access to applications, folders, and partitions with what seemed to be no pattern at all. Booted into single user mode (option+s, right?) and noticed there was a message: "to use update _prebinding run fsck -r and then run update_prebinding or redo_prebinding" or something like that. So I followed the instructions and ended up getting the same message I recieved last time: "WARNING: No physical memory suitable for paging or swap available, temporarily disabling [something]..."

My apologies that the error messages are neither verbatim nor complete, I thought I could fix it all {grinning sheepishly}. So I called Apple at this point and tried working a few things out but nothing wanted to work so they had me re-install OS X over the copy I had on the drive; they said it was like a "Restore-in-Place." That didn't work either so I said "fuggeddabaudit," booted into OS 9.1 on seprate partition and erased "Ecks," my OS X partition.

Better luck to all.


PS: My remarks in regards to "getting owned" were in complete sarcasm.
