10.5: Join 'wheel' group as possible fix for system issues
Authored by: tom larkin on Apr 08, '08 06:39:27AM

I have only seen this be a problem when installers do not apply the proper ownerships into items that they are in the /Library and /System. I have even installed them as a root user and it still puts it in the admin:admin user:group, and they needed to be root:wheel.

However, I have not seen this as a general issue, but more of a specific one to specific installers that the developer did not quite understand Unix, or Apple's Unix is maybe the better way to say it.
