10.5: Enable the root user
Authored by: junkie on Oct 30, '07 12:29:55AM

I am having a problem with one of my systems, I can't authenticate.

I can login but anytime I want to install or unlock something, I enter my user name and password but it fails. I am pretty sure the user is admin, at least it was, and I know the password is correct because I can log out and back in with it.

There was an Apple advisory with steps to fix login problems in single user mode, but that did not help.

Would getting root access make a difference?
