I'm planning on running a couple of scripts in single-user mode to speed up (and simplify for less savvy users than myself) the configuring of a few aspects of some Macs that I set up for other people.
I've read the few threads I could find about this, and my question is simply is there anything I should be particularly aware of when it comes to running scripts from single-user mode?
I'm aware that I can't invoke any commands/apps that would require a GUI to load, and that the
/sbin/mount commands would still be required before a script can be run at all.
Two more specific questions: If I set the script as executable before depositing it on the disk image that will be booted in single-user mode, will it remain executable?
And lastly, when it comes to removing user accounts I've seen on some threads e.g this one the need to invoke this command:
launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.opendirectoryd.plist
However, as I simply want to
rm various files - is there any need to do this, the process seems to work just fine without it?
