Is there someone out there that can un-dmg a file for me?

My problem is that I just re-installed X, and ever since then I have been getting error messages with Disk Copy saying error 192. It can't mount any files! So I took a look at the KBase and they have a program to fix it— it restores privledges on all the Apple files, and is supposed to fix my problem.

But guess what? This program is a .dmg file to fix a Disk Copy problem!! So I can un-dmg this at school, but I have no other mac computers here at my house..

Soi I'd be much obligued to anyone who can help me out tonight. If your willing to help, I can give you further instructions on how to get it to me, unless you have a server of your own. Thanks. :)

All up in your bidness
At what URL can the file be found?

On a side note, have you tried booting into single-user mode, mounting the disk image manually as root, and copying its contents off of the .dmg? "mount -t hfs file.dmg /Volumes" or something of the sort. That might work if it's a problem with Disk Copy itself.

Haven't tried that with the mount as single-user.

Here's the link.

Yeah, that program reset all of my privileges so I'm back in business now. Some of them seemed pretty drastic— I looked at the log file and some permissions were changed from rwxrwxrwx. And I just did a full erase clean system install last week. So that leads me to believe that this one is Apple's fault. The log file showed that it changed a whole lot of files.

But in any case, I would recommend following the link a few posts back in this thread and running it on your comp to avoid any future problems.

mac15— it was recognized in toast as a HFS+ image but it just failed to mount. I am using toast 5.1.3 with a Yamaha 2100S burner and haven't had problems mounting images bf w/Toast. Maybe that problem w/DC was affecting something in toast? I'll have to check when I get off work.
