TLDR: How do i enable networking in Single User Mode under 10.6.8 My Goal is to connect to a local server via an afp share so i can transfer photos from my broken imac. I can only boot in safe mode and single user mode. Ive read that safe mode doesn't allow file transfer over the network so Single User Mode is my only option. (I.E i cant use GUI all i can use is commands.) This is the code i use, (which has been proven to work on my macbook) mount -t afp afp://Usernameassword@ipaddress/afpshare /Volumes/Freenas Running this code gives an error 22. After lots of researching and pulling hair i then realized that i cant even ping it , so i then started looking to enable networking. ive tried this sites options in launching daemons but they don't work because there not for 10.6.8 http://www.westwind.com/reference/os-x/commandline/single-user.html ive tried to launch these daemons but they return an endless systemShutdown false error message launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.kextd.plist launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.notifyd.plist launchctl load /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.configd.plist And before you ask yes i have ran fsck and it returns ok yes i have mounted the drive with mount -uw / yes i have tried SystemStarter My Question is how can i enable networking so i can mount a server drive Thank you so much in advanced.
