Please let me know if that didn't work, so we can continue troubleshooting. Don't Rate my answer until you are satisfied.
Wont install--says this volume already has a new version of Safari installed
Ok--now what do I do
I dragged the safari icon into the package, installed, and now it is asking for computer password XXXXX I don't know since the computer was given to me
Dont have the discs...
listen I am just a single mom with 3 kids and a friend gave me this computer. I am just trying to get my work done by Monday.
Friend, I need to pay my rent...is this going to cost me more than the initial deposit I made?
If you don't have the discs, then you can create a new user account from Single User Mode. Then login to that new account and you can change the password XXXXX your old account. Follow the steps below to create a new User Account in Single User Mode.
mount -uw / rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone shutdown -h now After rebooting, you should be able to create a brand new Administrator account. Then goto System Preferences > Accounts, select your old account and change the password. Then logout from Apple menu and login to the old account.
Let me know how it goes..
Im gonna try...how do I reconnect with you if I lose the connection?
got it. ok
the terminal commands to reset the password XXXXX working. Can you resend and tell me where there are spaces. Looks like there are spaces between the "uw" and the "/" in the first line and a space after "rm" and one before the third "/ "before the ".AppleSetupDone"
and then a space after "shutdown" and "h" in the third line.
Is that correct?
Thanks so much...I will try this again
Ok...got all that done...Im back to trying to extract Safari. It says file exists and do I want to replace, stop extraction or leave alone
Been clicking replace over and over again--looks like it is replacing several things...is that normal?
ok...also when I made all the adjustments to the accounts and registered...I was having trouble getting back on line...it kept asking for a keychain password...is that different from the regular password?
Ok fixed the keychain and replaced the folders...so go to Apple online and look for Safari software updates...before I try to find the application--is that right?
So go to applications and click on Safari application?
Ok..clicked on Safari icon and it took me straight to apple page...so should I just type in Safari updates for MAC OS X 10.5.8? And what do I do with the Pacifist thing? :)
Yay! I have never been so nervous and never learned so much in a relatively short amount of time. Thanks Ashik. Peace and blessings...thank you for your patience with me.
Thanks so much. Yes you provided excellent service.
God be with you as well.
Ashik...I tried moving the Safari to the list of icons at the bottom of the screen and it disappeared and I dont see it in applications...I hope to God I didnt delete it again..
there is a folder marked Safari and another folder that says 5.0.3
No Safari icon just folders that say Bookmarks and History
Well, It seems like you've deleted it again. You have to reinstall it.
Yep...thats what Im doing now. Geezzz....So...how do I put the icon at the bottom--do you know what I mean--in the toolbar? Thanks
Thank you again. Got it downloaded and got the updates
