Blocked hd in snow leopard This time cant even use Batch

by hitfeeling / April 11, 2013 8:07 AM PDT

Hi Im Erik at Eatraxx. Im on Mac pro snow leopard. Last time all my hard drives got blocked I ended up using BatchMod and it worked perfectly however this time, the only usable hard drive, my main hard drive, is more or less blocked as well - cant download Batchmod or use the one I had, says no space cant repair permissions, error message, cant use terminal says ...login PAM Error line 400 System error login Could not determine audit condition
Anyone have a clue about this
Would appreciate a loooott a solution.
Thanks. Erik

That discussion also noted they "did choose " read & write " include to all items "

You can see they found out why you don't touch that.

Doesnt seem to be my case

Basically I need to set permissions right again on my main HD to be able to run Batchmod from it and unlock the others however thinkin turning my computer off , starting up with the Dvd install disc, will the main Hd also be blocked or will I be able to repair persmissions from the Dvd?

Sounds exactly like your case.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / April 11, 2013 8:58 AM PDT

You wrote "did choose " read & write " include to all items"
They wrote "giving myself read/write access to everything"

If there is free space on the drive then I'm going with the same fix. Archive and install. And if that fails, start over and -> "Just a word of advice, don't do that again, ever!"

Not everything can be fixed it seems.
