Problem installing Leopard

Posted on 2 mins read

I installed Leopard yesterday. The good news is that its really beautiful and that it seems to add a lot of improvements. The bad news is that it removed admin rights to my user. It seems funny but because you need admin rights to give admin rights, well …

Here is the solution :

  • Boot in single user mode. (press AppleKey + S at startup)
  • Add your user to /private/etc/sudoers
  • Reboot
  • From a terminal, add your user to Admin group with this command sudo dscl . append /Groups/admin GroupMembership myusername
  • Quit and Open Preferencies to check that your user now has admin rights.
  • Remove your user from /private/etc/sudoers. Being in admin group is sufficent
