    Ok, I have 2 problems with OSX 10.6. First, My audio wont work. The built in speakers just wont put out noise and when I try to change the volume on the keyboard I get this. http://www.kttns.org/zi3m2 Here is what my "Sound" in System Perf. Looks like. http://www.kttns.org/iymfk

    Problem two. I can't unhid hidden files. I found out how to do it by terminal here, http://www.mactricksandtips.com/2008/04/show-hidden-files.html but then I change it to "FALSE" and it says invailed killall.

    Problem 1: Have you plugged anything recently into the audio out port of the MacBook? If so, see if there is a red light on in the audio out port, which is the optical audio out.
    Maybe you can solve that problem by plugging your headphones or amplifier back into the MB and out again.

    Problem 2: The command should be working, it works for me.

    A more descriptive and precise thread title will help cater to the right audience and get you more responses.
    To edit your thread title, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the "Go Advanced" button below your message.
    Have you also taken a look at MRoogle, since that question may have been asked several times?

    from the forum rules:

    Minor Problems

    3. Thread titles.

    Use thread titles that indicate the subject of the thread, not generic titles such as "Need help". Moderators may change thread titles that have no specifics, usually by adding something more specific in parentheses.

    i have had 2 fixes for that.

    1. Reinstall 10.6.2 combo update if you didn't already.
    2. Go to Utilities and open the AUdio Midi utility and make sure that Built-in Output is set for
    Source: internal Speakers
    Format: 44100 Hz

    I've had to do that on quite a few machines at work.
