Most FreeBSD kernels let you set a flag(?) to decide whether "chflags noschg" will work in multi-user mode.
How do I do this w/ Mac OS X? Here's what happens when I do "chflags noschg" in multi-user mode: # chflags noschg test.txt chflags: test.txt: Operation not permitted The opposite, "chflags schg", works fine. I realize this is a security feature (you can protect files in multi-user mode, but not vica versa), but it's annoying. I also realize I can boot into single-user mode (http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=106388) where "chflags noschg" works just fine, but I'd like to use noschg more as advisory protection from myself, not something that requires single-user mode to undo. -- We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying to understand and assimilate technology.
