    Is there a way to boot directly into the desktop from single user mode (without having to re-authenticate as root).

    Is it possible ? :apple:

    Are you trying to break into someone's Mac? :D

    If such a thing is possible, I know nothing about it. In single-user mode, you can enter "exit" to boot the system, or "shutdown -r now" to immediately and gracefully restart the machine.

    Haha! Not trying to break in, It's mine own don't panic :)

    But Id like to not have to authenticate as root, nor change the root password.

    Maybe even if I could someone crack the root password (impossible, I know - there encrypted).
