I am having problems running the /usr/bin/purge commands on my iMac with Lion since the last upgrade. Someone suggested me that I may be running in safe mode and asked me to type "nvram -p" on terminal. According to this person, I should have any variable listed, but I have these:
efi-apple-recovery (an array) fmm-computer-name fmm-mobileme-token-FNM EFICapsule_result System AudioVolume EFIBluetoothDelay
Each variable assigned to a bunch of stuff, specially the first and the third. Is this what I should see typing nvram -p on terminal?
