Thread: endless reboot after renaming /usr to /usr.old

  1. #1
    Default endless reboot after renaming /usr to /usr.old

    i tried to improve the file system space and moved all /usr contact to /private/usr, then i renamed /usr to /usr.old and made a symbolic link from /private/usr to /usr, this was in theory ... an good idea but not ... now the system don't pass the apple splash screen ... and reboot again and again.

    Some one can help me ? how to resore the system ? or access the file system from external computer ?

    ps: system reboot to fast to be detected by USB.

    Thank you ;-))

    What would possess you to do such a thing? The /usr folder is used by the Unix file system only. If you want to conserve space, move the Applications folder to your root folder. I think you'll have to do a restore at this point.
